Caption Contest! *Updated*

Can you think of a good caption for this Richard Armitage photo?

Example: "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful."
(Lame, but you get the idea.)

Please leave your caption in the comments section below.
If you have more than one caption, please number them so people can vote for the specific caption they like. If you an anonymous commenter, please sign at the bottom with a nicname of some sort so that we know which anonymous's caption is voted for.

Vote for your favorite captions in the comments section as well.
You may vote more than once by leaving a comment or emailing me at armitageblog@yahoo.com
List the name(s) of the commenter(s) and the number of the specific caption(s) you like.
Example: "RA Lover's 1& 3 and Barb's 4"

The deadline for both captions and votes
is Friday, Oct. 16th at 12:00 am, Central Time.
I will tally up the votes and feature the winning caption
voice-bubbled in this picture for "Photo Friday."

Now let's see what funny/crazy things you come up with! :)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

UPDATE- 10/13/09:
I now see that both contributing captions AND voting in the comments section
wasn't the best idea since it can be a bit confusing and some wish to keep their votes private.
Oops- sorry!  (The caption contest is a new thing on The RA Fan Blog,
so I guess we'll have to iron out the kinks during the first round.)

Here's the new plan:
Keep those captions coming by comments or email! 
The deadline for captions is still Friday, October 16th at 12:00 am central time.
Starting Friday, you can vote for your favorite captions by poll.
I'll leave the poll open all weekend and post the winning caption with the photo on Monday.
(Something else will be featured for Photo Friday this week.)

Hopefully this works better for everyone-
this is the format we'll stick to for any future caption contests!
Thanks for your patience. :)

WitchyWoman said...

4) Some say my stare is more powerful than the sun itself.

5) You can look but you can't touch

6) "and when you open your eyes you will believe this man is actually your husband"

Loving all the captions ladies!!

WitchyWoman said...

My bad.

This post was purely selfish on my account... I just wanted to laugh at the stuff you came up with and so far it's working! I've liked them all. :)
Keep it coming! And be sure to vote, too.

Longhairedtoad said...

First I'll pose, and then I'll...

Longhairedtoad said...

I'm all dressed up with no place to go.

phylly3 said...

I only have eyes for YOU!

bZirk said...

This is great! LOL! But I'm having a hard time choosing too.

Here's my offering:

"I'm Rarmitage, THE RARMITAGE"

Sue1 said...

How about:


Loving home required for young male. Needs lots of TLC (tender loving care), very clean, handy around the house and loves children (but couldn't eat a whole one!). Loves nothing better than curling up on the bottom of the bed and having his tummy tickled. (As you can see from the picture!)

Would be ideal company for mad, middle aged, sex obsessed women!

Sue said...

By the way I love the Phylly3's caption!

bZirk said...

6) "and when you open your eyes you will believe this man is actually your husband"


I like all of them, but this is my favorite. :D

Come now? Do you seriously think you can resist me?

Andrea Milano said...

C'mon...what are you waiting for?
Come here... get closer...I promise I will a good Guy

Random Ann said...

"Rock the cradle of love...
sent from heaven above" Billy Idol'd words never rang so loud in my ears...


Avalon said...

Oh wow these are all so good! I really liked the first one, I was like "oh my" until I read the gun part, then I laughed, really cute. I liked Witchywoman's "and when you open your eyes you will believe this man is actually your husband"...
I am not as creative and the only thing I could think of was a tag I had on one of my sigs. Picture R.A in front of a group of haters with Justin Timberlake's I'm bringing sexy back playing and the caption would read
"Jealousy is a Disease… Get well soon B...aitches!"

Of course mine would be an adult only caption

Avalon said...

@3)(Richard) "WitchyWoman.Give me back my tie"
(WitchyWoman) "come over here and get it back yourself"

That one is hilarious too!

WitchyWoman said...

I really need to get a life Lol.

8) Women!!! Want to treat yourself this Christmas?? We have the perfect gift for you. The Richard Armitage Doll. Comes in a variety of outfits(suit(as above),Handsome Mill Owner,Swimwear,Evil Henchman,MI5 agent etc) complete with full working parts. Order now to avoid disappointment!!!

endorwitch said...

oh WitchyWoman - that last one.... "complete with full working parts" - thats a bit pervy. :D

anyhoo i'd also like to add avote for Bzirks "I'm Rarmitage, THE RARMITAGE". :D

Maria Grazia said...

So, at last I've found some time to write my caption. Mind you, I'm not that good at English (just a foreign language to me!), you are much better.
This is my suggestion: " Don't swoon all of you, just pretending. Ain't I a very talented actor?"
My favourite caption is WitchyWoman's 6)
A very good afternoon to you all!

WitchyWoman said...

I love.
Endorwitch's No 2 caption.

Bzirks "I'm rarmitage. THE RARMITAGE"

And RK's caption (which is me totally)

@Endorwitch. My other home is the gutter which is where I was when I came up with my last caption. I forgot to say it was a life size doll but I guess you lovely ladies already had worked that out...wink.

bZirk said...

Oh, I so want to do variations of some of the captions. For instance on WW's doll:

"Can be had for only $39.95."

Debra said...

How is the official vote taking place?

I like Witchy Woman's "tie comment"...but on my bubble I have substituted MY name (sorry WW).

These are all so clever...you are a creative bunch.

phylly3 said...

Could we do the voting by a Poll?
(Just a suggestion).

bZirk said...


For messing up the voting system ;) you get this:

30 lashes with a wet noodle

Hey, that sounds like a good caption. (Yes, I'm that lame :D).
