August 2016 Caption This Contest

It’s the first day of a new month and you know what that means: time for a new Caption This photo!

This month’s pick was inspired by a few Daily and Weekly observances I saw on Brownielocks: National Psychic Day (1st), National Psychic Week (1st-5th), and International Clown Week (1st-7th).

How to Play

  1. Look at the photo below.
  2. Use the comment section to caption it.
  3. Be sure to let us know what prize you’d like if you win. (Yes! There are not only prizes, but you get to pick which one appeals to you most!)
  4. Newsletter subscribers: be sure to identify yourself. (If you’re not one, read on to find out why you might like to become one.)


  1. $10 Amazon card
  2. $10 Starbucks card
  3. $15 iTunes card
  4. $15 Target card

How to Double Your Prize

Newsletter subscribers will be allowed to choose two prizes. If their caption is chosen, they’ll get both!

That means they have a chance to put between $20-$30 extra spending money in their pockets.

Not a subscriber? Become one here. (Super fast and easy. You just need to submit your email address.)


  1. Open to U.S. residents only. (Sorry out-of-country readers!)
  2. If two or more caption submissions are very similar, we’ll draw names from the Boo Bucket to determine a winner.
  3. Multiple entries accepted. (If you’re gifted enough to come up with more than one caption, feel free to submit them. Just be sure we know they’re distinct entries and not a giant run-on one.)
  4. Newsletter Subscribers: You can pick two of the same card, or two different ones. Entirely up to you.


Are multiple submissions accepted?

Yes. See #3 above under Rules.

Does my caption have to be a quote?

Nope. You can give the photo a title, write a poem, make it a quote as if someone’s saying something, write a flash story…anything goes. Whatever the photo inspires from you, we’ll take!

  1. That Lougarou to my left think I don’t see him. But I’ll just calmly walk up this tree in my heels and show him that soucouyant is boss.
    He cannot overcome me.

  2. Come little children, I’ll take thee away, into my garden of magic…. Would like Target card please if I am chosen.

  3. Oh my…we didn’t have a lot of entries this month, but the ones we did have? SO fun! You guys are once again proving what clever captioners you are.
    Which is great, except it makes my job hard.
    Except there was one entry this month that stood out to me immediately.
    I see comments in my behind-the-scenes dashboard even before I know what posts they go with. When I read Ken’s, the first thing I thought was, “What a perfect fit that’d be for the photo on this month’s Caption This contest.” Then I chuckled when I realized that’s exactly where he’d left it!
    So CONGRATS, Ken! I’ll be in touch about getting your prize to you. (Or prizes, if you’re a newsletter subscriber.)
    However, there are two other entries that are getting honorable mention nods this month too: William’s and Erica’s. I’ll be in touch with you two about that as well also.
    THANK YOU to all who tried to come up with something for the August image. September is now posted so if you’d like to flex your captioning prowess with that one, it’s available for you to do so!
