    It took a while (sorry), but we're ready to announce our caption contest winner: it is ShatteredJon's ghoul pic, for its simplicity and finesse:

    It was a good contest with some funny entries so it was hard to pic. Here are some other jury favourites:

    congratz!
    never used, only shot 2x 13 times... :twisted:

    so not a drop of sweat, my friend. but you might find some lead deposited on it (though they were jacketed bullets, so no worry).

    it's hard to choose dude. also, got a feeling that the jury favorites are a bit random?

    i think Ready-Teddy-Go came in as second. don't remember the rest.

    Congrats to ShatteredJon; yours, Weekend at Todd’s by Cimmerian Nights and the third caption (The fallout fanbase) by dogmeatlives were some my favorites.

    *scratches head*
    Funny, but 2 of my off-contest captions are shown as runner-ups.
    I’d like to give credit to PlanHex for the capture of the “teddy bear in action”.

    A big thanks goes to NMA staff for the opportunity has given us to be creative.

    @ ShatteredJon

    I spare a Panchor Jackhammer in case you’d like to continue with the puncture. ;)

    Yay, recognition of my talent for finding comedic opportunity! though I mostly fail at the jokes themselves

    Also, "I spare a Panchor Jackhammer in case you’d like to continue with the puncture" sounds sexual.

    Also also,
    Bad puns make Baby Jesus cry.

    After first seeing these screen shots, EVERYTIME a feral ghoul attacked me it made that caption came into my head. So, Great Job Mr Jon

    Personally I like "Some privacy, please?" the most, followed by "Wendy I can fry!" & "Ready, Teddy, GO!!!" in a dead tie for 2nd place.

    eh, if the opera singing ghouls was chosen based on the humor that he looks like he is singing, then for shame on the judges.

    Too verbose.

    The whole point of captions is that they are quick and click instantly. Ready Teddy Go is a good example, as is Wendy I can fry...click right off. A longer joke can be funnier, but it'll also feel more belaboured...lacking finesse.

    Longer jokes provide more finesse then short jokes, actually effort into giving the reader a good joke. It's true they needed to be short ones I suppose, but never say a short joke can beat a longer one.

    I hope im not the only one who found the caption winner completely unfunny.

    Reminds me of moronic image macros of ragdolls. Like what could be expected from Gmod.

    Gman and Why so Erroneous, made me chuckle.

    I'm just puzzled as to why all the entries are shit-ass quality jpegs.

    Anyway, the Free Man should've won.

    Because JPEG files are approximately 1/10 the size of .bmp files?
