It is absolutely disgusting the kind of mediocrity being rewarded with these caption contests. I can't even fathom how these appeal to the lowest common denominator, these are all consitently vapid.

If you are not happy with the winners,  did you vote for your favorites?

It's a sad day when you can not just say congrats to the winner's.
If you don't like the end results then you should have voted or entered a caption yourself.
Congrats to all the winners and all that sent in a caption.

Oh yeah, gotta agree that number 3 was my favorite, and the 2nd was, well, a close second.  Guess it shows my age :)

Congrats to the winners.

I think part of the problem is nobody has the patience to skim past the first 2 or 3 pages of entries to vote..... Always seems like every winner is from the first 3 pages of responses to the contest.

As said above,  I read every page of the entries.  I then select the finalists.  Which are never more then two pages.  One of our winners is indeed from page two of the finalists.  

Those finalists are then voted upon by the community to determine the  winners.

Congrats to the winners. That was a hard one. There are some very witty people. I wonder if they are in advertising in IRL?

Third place should've been first. And after showing to friends on SEA:

"That's SEA server in a nutshell."

I thought it worked differently, that's my mistake. I thought community voted first, finalists were chosen based on votes, then finalists were voted on to come up with the winners....
