When it comes to caption contests, you people usually disappoint us so hard with your attempts at humor that the endeavor quickly turns from terrific to tedious. Oh, I kid. Y'all really did come through in last week’s scrimmage for a pair of Moogfest passes. It was a tight race, abounding with worthy runners up. Good news for said second- and third-placers who aren’t too crushed by defeat to get back on proverbial horse: We have a second pair of Moogfest passes to give away. Remember, the alterna-synth-centric celebration features Miike Snow, The Magnetic Fields, GZA, Primus, Prefus 73, Thomas Dolby, Orbital and many others (full lineup and other deets here) and overtakes Asheville, N.C., this weekend.
Not only is a pair of passes to the festival on the table here, we’re also offering up passes to the Moogfest pre-show bash featuring Justice(!).
Since that shindig is tomorrow night, and since Asheville is about a five-hour drive from Nashville (not to mention the hour you lose crossing into Eastern time, and the inevitable other hours you’ll lose stopping for moonshine, dull knives and shitty fudge in Gatlinburg), let’s do this captch 'test lightning-round style. Entrants have until noon tomorrow — that’s 22 short hours — to come up with the wittiest, ball-bustingest bon mot to accompany the odd-fangled image above.
Post your caption down there in the comments section, and be sure to include your email address in the appropriate field. We won't publish your address, but we'll need it in order to contact our winner. Again, we'll pick our winner tomorrow, Oct. 24, at noon. So pack your bags, gas up your whip and be sure to keep an eye on your email if you think you’ve got the goods. OK? Go!
Update: We have our winner! Thanks for playing.
