Topic: The Horror Caption Game

A pic Punk posted earlier got me thinking about a new game I'd like to try running here on the boards.  Goes a little sumpin' like this:

I'll post one new pic a week.  Each pic will be from a horror film or TV show, and will feature an empty dialogue bubble.  You guys come up with the funniest caption you can think of.  Post as many captions as you like.  End of the week, we'll take a vote to see who has the funniest caption.  The winner gets a great big pot of bragging rights.***

We'll start next Sunday.  The same night I post a new Deadliest Horror Movie Warrior.  But let's do a practice run.  No votes this week, just a trial run to get folks into the spirit of it.   

Caption the following image (no racial slurs, no sexually explicit language -- remember, we're a PG-13 message board):

How do you get the words in the bubble?  I assume there's some program for that that I won't have.

I mainly use Preview on my Mac.  It's a Mac only thing, and pretty basic. 
But a good, free one you can get is Gimp (yeah, that's actually the name).  It's available in basically every OS, and it's like Photoshop for free (think OpenOffice - MS OFfice), but with an annoying interface.  Just play around with it for a while.

I'm sure Lon, Howdy, and other have some other MS software solutions.  I'll let them give out any advice they deign to impart.

I'll toss in a bag of detachable nuts as a potluck prize.

Windows Paint.  Save the image, open with Windows Paint, choose the text tool, position it in the bubble, type, save, upload the pic, post it here.

Or you can just post your caption down here.  If folks want to use the actual image, cool, but it's not a must. smile

i'm talking Gimp and he's pulling out MS Paint.  Wow talk about bringing a tank to a knife fight!

Re: The Horror Caption Game

Re: The Horror Caption Game

You can do that with Paint in the Accessory folder too. No need to download anything it's already there so might as well use it no??? big_smile

"No, dumb-ass, you see ghosts.  I see dead people."

Re: The Horror Caption Game

Change that up to "..., I shoot dead people." and you got a winner.

Yay, you did it!

Re: The Horror Caption Game

Why did I agree to wear this hat?

Re: The Horror Caption Game

But it is a very jaunty hat!

Re: The Horror Caption Game

Alright, now that folks have the hang of it, let's kick this off.  First pic, and remember we'll be voting at the end of the week for the best caption (I won't be participating, just providing images):
