Congratulations to Chris Oberlin, winner of the October WitOut Caption Contest! Here’s Chris’s caption:
Uh, dude… I’m already *riding* you, so you can stop winking at me.
Chris, look for an email from WitOut with information to claim your prize (two tickets to a Philly Improv Theater show of your choice)! If we don’t hear from you within a week, we’ll be awarding the prize to our runner-up.
And speaking of our runner-up, congratulations also to Matt Nelson! Here’s Matt’s second place caption: “Brian was beginning to doubt Jess and her vast array of obscure colloquialisms, such as ‘Save a horse, ride a Ratcliffe.'”
To the rest of you: Thanks for participating, and best of luck next time! We’ll launch the next WitOut Caption Contest on November 15th.
