Caption Contest #2

Since the last caption contest worked out so well, I decided to hold another caption contest! The same rules apply:

  1. You may submit up to three different captions. Simply comment your caption(s) in this post. You can put them all in one comment or in separate comments if you're coming up with captions separately.
  2. Keep the captions clean. I also reserve the right to refuse any captions I deem inappropriate.
  3. I will be accepting captions until Saturday (10/6/12) at 11:55 PM CST. I will then post a poll for the best caption (but don't neglect the regular poll either!). The poll will last for one week. I will announce the winner when the poll is over.
  4. Have fun!
And since there was a question about it last time, I'm adding this rule to clear up any fuzziness in my rules:

5. The captions don't need to reference any period drama/movie/etc. unless you want them to. If your caption is entirely your own doing, great! If it's a quote from another movie or references another movie, that's also great! Whatever suits you best! :-)

Okay, now for the picture!

A little inspiration: you can also come up with a caption for the letter (like what it says)! Or a reaction to the letter after Mr. Chivery reads it? All up to you!
Can't wait to see what you all come up with!

  1. I have three completely different quotes but they were great fun to come up with! Thanks for hosting these caption games! :)

    First Caption:
    "The last Golden Ticket! It's mine! I found some money in the street and I bought two bars of chocolate and the second one had the Golden Ticket!"

    Second Caption:
    “You put that to her Ladyship, Sir Leicester Dedlock, Baronet, from me, Inspector Bucket of the Detective."

    Third Caption:
    Arthur: "Let me in, Let me in, or I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!"
    Mr. Chivery: "Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!"

  2. Here's my guess. :)

    Arthur: "Oh, I almost forgot! Here's the lunch bill."

    Elizabeth Rose

  3. 1. Here's a shilling. Don't spend it on drink!

    2. Mr. Chivery: Rock. Arthur: Paper!

    3. Arthur: Look at me, I can balance this paper on my finger! I bet you can't do that. Goodbye!
    Mr. Chivery: ...?

  4. Miss Laurie and Miss Dashwood,
    I see both of you have been watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory today? hehe! (I saw that it was on TV today)

  5. "Take two and call me in the morning."

    ~Robyn Hoode

  6. Chivery: "Letter of business or of pleasure, Mr Clennam?"
    Clennam: "Business."
    Chivery: "Excellent, sir. Business letters may bring money. Friendship hardly ever does."

  7. Arthur: "Here it is! But keep it secret, and keep it safe!"


  8. "Plumtree, my dear boy, Plumtree! card." ~~Laurel and Hardy, _Another Fine Mess_

    Doubtful if most of you have seen that...but it's a great quote there. :)

  9. Guard this with your LIFE, Mr. Chivery! It holds the secrets of the universe!

  10. Thank you everyone for submitting a caption! Submissions are now closed!
