Caption That Cover: Penis Sword - the Winners!

Thanks to Alyssa Day,  there were snorts and giggles amidst the Bitchery as we captioned the cover for Atlantis Unleashed. Then she had to pick the winners. Ruh roh!

I love, love, LOVE them all, and holy crap did you all make release day FABULOUS for me!!!!  It was impossible to narrow it down to just 5, so I decided to give away 10!!  And even picking only 10 was hard, but these made me snort the MOST Diet Coke out of my nose (the tried and true Day family standard, shows how classy WE are, right?):

1.    Bren for:  Taking the world over with his indomitable “Cialis”,  from the Greek word meaning “to cleave the waters with a mighty Johnson”.

2.    romantic@heart for:  Atlantis Unleashed: The Sword Whisperer

3.    Carrie Lofty for:  The most common complaint among women regarding sex is that their partners rarely devote enough time to swordplay.

4.    Lady T For both: “By the power of Grayskull….I HAVE THE POWER!!!” and “Thunder,Thunder,THUNDER CROTCH,HO!”

5.    Cathy for:  “Atlantis Unleashed: Quest for the Sword of Compensation”

6.    CupK8 for:  “The ad on Craigslist said ‘Sword Instructor’ …. ”

7.    Bonnie Ferguson for:  He says to the heroine: “And when they say I have balls of steel, they aren’t kidding.”

8.    Erica for:  I can see we’re going to need a safety word, big guy.

9.    Amly for:  “Low Riders Ho Rider: Sunburn Victim Lovin’ (because we must acknowledge the pink)

10.  And my favorite of all, Jill Sorenson, for:  “Just wanted to say I love the cover and I’d be proud to “brandish” it.  Subtlety is lost on me, I suppose, because I don’t think it’s cheesy at all.  : )”  Yay Jill!!

Congrats to the winners! You can email Alyssa (authoralyssaday @ aol.com) with your name and address so as to claim your swordly winnings. Congrats – and thanks for the fun contest, Alyssa!

    I’ll echo the thanks to Sarah and Alyssa!  10 of us, wow!  All of the entries were snort-worthy and gave me much entertainment at work yesterday.  Totally worth coming out of my lurking cave. ;)

    Thank you so much for such a fun contest, SB and Alyssa. Congratulations all around! All the entries were hilarious.

    My spam filter word is man25. One man (specially one with such an impressive sword) is already a handful. What to do with 25?

    Hmm. Drinking contest?

    To late to enter, but just saw this and my two cents: 

    gives a whole (hole?) new meaning to death by sword.

    or

    Live by the sword, die by the sword

    I would buy tickets to the Alyssa Day vs. Victoria Dahl drinking contest.  This is a great idea for a charity event!!

  18. 18

    I don’t think I could do something like this. Choosing the funnies out of many funny captions would be terrible – if you like all of them it’s hard to choose “the funniest”.

    Thanks for the fun.

    No, I think swordfight.  I can break out my fencing gear . . .

    No, I think swordfight.  I can break out my fencing gear . . .

    Hmm. Could be win/win. Either I claim victory or I get poked by Alyssa Day.
