(October 28) Kestra provided the tricky artfully altered screen shot, and Molly Movie Night MODs provided a jack-o’-lantern full of treats! Congratulations to five-time caption contest winner Carl Partridge and this week’s other finalists:
How in the world can I get my trick or treat basket out from under this REDICULOUS CAPE! Ashley, you are not LISTENING! (hrbrenizer)
Carrie: SuperOwl will protect you, Ashley !!!!
Ashley: Seriously fowlks, I do not know this person..... (PhilJustPhil)
Ash, what you need is Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!
Carrie the Coffee Cueen – to the rescue! (Jennifero2000)
(October 21) Just as the Movie Night MODs were getting into a comfortable caption contest groove, contest mistress Kestra decided to throw them for another loop. Instead of asking the MODs to come up with a caption for the lump o’ owlets picture, she challenged them to explain what the owlets were doing. MODs rose to the challenge quite handily – the judges did not. It took a total of four judges to come up with a solid panel of finalists from among the fourteen entries!
Congratulations to first-time winner Kateywise and this week’s other finalists!
These owlets are: Practicing their Sumowl wrestling moves. (Dale Ann Harsh)
These two are: Pretending to be Salt & Pepper Shakers (the ones with the Magnets in their Noses)! (Yeahhoorose)
These owlets are: Stereo Owls!!! Playing my Favorite Tune! (gmarch53)
(October 14) Molly’s eyes may have launched a hundred thousand or so web searches, but this week it was her ears that inspired a thousand – OK, a dozen or so – creative Molly Movie Night Caption Contest entries. As Kestra would be quick to point out, those weren’t really Molly’s ears – it was just the appearance of ears that inspired MODs to wax auretical! Congratulations to this week’s Caption Contest winner, Marilyn173.
This week’s other finalists and their captions are:
Lashes: McGee, come quick! I'm turning into Tauntz!
memedee: I'm channeling the Easter Bunny we ate during C1
Kristin Olson: Wait, I'm a barn owl!. I'm not supposed to have ears!
(October 7) Yahoo/Yeahhoorose reluctantly let go of her claim to the perennial Molly Movie Night Booby Prize last night when her entry won the weekly caption contest by a mudslide! The owner of multiple screen names can now lay claim to one more title – Caption Contest Winner!
Welcome to the winner’s circle, Rose!
Congratulations also go out to this week’s other finalists:
Wow, Ashley! You were right! This is REAL grass, not AstroTurf!
Wow Ashley, Wesley was right, you gotta flap your wings or you will hit the ground if you're gonna fly.
Wow Ashley, Are you sure walking is faster than flying?

(September 30) Last week’s Molly Movie Night Caption Contest was limited to newbies – or, as the ever politically correct Kestra refers to them – pre-winner. The newbies didn’t disappoint, and reminded prior winners that they’d have to stay sharp if they wanted to be featured in future MOD blog announcements! Congratulations to winner hummerzz and all of the finalists!
The other captions that made it to last week’s poll were:
Molly’s To Do List
Food in the Pantry, done
Kids fed, done
Force field in place, done
Ahhhhh, Time for a nap!
Me thinks we're being spied on!
Max! Come Back Here! Dudley and I will Hold it Down for you!!!

What a great trip this has been, Blogging here on behalf of the Black Sheep Nation! If ya gotta be a sheep, be a BLACK SHEEP! That's what I always sez!
The time has come for me to resign as your czar, dictator, despot, autocrat, king, totalitarian ruler, imperialist, supreme Emperor of all things MOD, and Best Ever Guinea Pig in the Whole World including Things Within and Things Yet to be discovered in the Known and Unknown Universe! My modest humility prevents my listing the endless accomplishments I have achieved, but the one I must mention is that Eric once called me a guinea pig instead of a hamster. Hence, my work here is done.
Mom and the vet feel the time has come for me to relinquish my autocratic Rule over the MOD Kingdom to focus, instead, on my health. They are full of it! How dare they! I have spondylosee-dosee-do and my spine is fusing from my pretty bottom upwards and - yeah, talk about NERVE?! - THE "C" word has been mentioned and not in polite whispers, either! Cancer: BRING IT! GONNA GET YA, GONNA GET YA GOOD!
I have had so much fun being here I can't believe they're making me quit, like, what?
(What to say, what do the great Presidents say? THINK! THINK! Oh, RIGHT!)
"I am NOT a crook!" Yet I must resign.
"I did NOT have sex with that woman!" Yet I ain't goin' nowhere.
Let's see, let's see...aww, Bloody HORK! I got nothin'!
Guess it really is time to go: There is a silver lining! Guess who is in LURVE?
Mom put me out with Coconut, the only gentlewoman of the Herd and I chased
her and humped her and had so much fun! She flirted and flirted, then she chased
me and the fur on her neck stuck up as we played and when she was done with -
oh, right! (ya, mebbe it is time to go) BONDING, right, that: when she was done
with my gregarious bonding, she lunged at me, the hussy! Now I am in love.
The biggest problem we been havin' lately is my refusal to drink water. This
morning mom woke up to a sound she had never heard, and it worried her.
Turned out that hussy in the adjacent cage living with MacNutPie was telling me
to drink my water! The nerve! She went directly to her own water bottle, started
drinking, then gave me "the eye" so I obeyed and started drinking, too. Mom
could NOT freakin' believe her eyes!
So, between stupis illness and falling in love, I must hereby, forthwith, commencing
now, resign my post as Autocratic Dictator-in-Chief of Candles' Blog until Candles
returns knowing the rest of you will rush like hordes of lemmings to replace me and
install y'selves in what I can only describe as an impending MOD coup d'etat!
Knock y'selves out! Already got Anderson Cooper on the phone to send him, just
don't touch his pretty, pretty face like they did in Cairo, he didn't like that!
Who loves ya, baby?
YumYum loves ya! Now, for the counter insurgency!!!!
(Or Coconut, me sure loves me my "bonding!")
Your Beloved, Cherished, Adored, humble servant,

After donning the required uniforms, Molly and McGee
(holding talons) uttered the magic words:
Beam us up, Scotty
Glowz’s exquisite spider web artwork was an obvious caption contest choice, but leave it to Kestra to add bits and pieces that increased the level of difficulty several-fold! PhilJustPhil’s winning entry alluded to both the ghostly image and the empty boxes, and was an overwhelming favorite with the Movie Night voters. Congratulations, Phil!
This week’s other finalists were:
Can you see me now? (JanKW)
I am the leggs of owlets past.
You need to let the MODS back in immediately
or I will haunt you forever. (Marilyn 173)
"Apparition Display" Do NOT touch the glass!
Vintage Leggs McGee Summer of 2010 (gmarch53)
Congratulations to all the finalists!
