New Caption Contest Contenders Rule!


Next time we play I want to be the dashing pirate and you can be the damsel in distress!


Kestra’s zany doctored screen shot stumped caption contest veterans and brought a creative batch of newcomers to Friday’s Molly Movie Night Caption Contest poll, including first-time winner “anonyMOD” Nanci Maxim. Congratulations, Nanci! Also making it to the top four were first-time finalist CatherineDogs3, first-time entrant 1Skatr, and recent winner kilkenny cat:

It's the RAPTURE! (1Skatr)

When they gone, they gone...
The books they are a-fledging...so get yours today before they all fly away.

Carrie, AshZilla...Molly, McGee, and the wee ones called to the Rainbow Bridge
too soon, but this our story too, MODS, we were part of it...We still are and
always will be. This was our time. A gift. An EPIC gift from the Universe:
Deet-Deet-Deet! We listened, we heard, we arrived one by one and became
MODS: Friends for Life. So, get the book! This one's for US. And there won't
be another like it!

To Carlos and Eric, we thank you in advance, Bards of the Owl Realm.

On a cuteness scale, I think they take after MY side of the family. Don't you? (Jennifero2000)


This is the best house Carlos has built for us. But, kids you have got to learn how to keep your room cleaner. (hrbrenizer)

MMN MODs Choose Kilkenny Cat’s Caption by a Beak!

Why did I let McGee talk me into letting these kids get a computer?


Molly Movie Night MODs, exhibiting empathy with modern moms, decided that Kilkenny Cat’s caption perfectly captured the zeitgeist of this week’s doctored screen shot. Many congratulations to Kilkenny Cat, and many thanks to Kestra, who provided the souped up screen shot!


This week’s other finalists were:


AH HA HA I got a screenshot of that! Humans are soooo funny! (IMAowlwatcher)


Ack, Mom! Is this how we look to all those MODS out there? (Kristin Olson)

Photo Caption Contest, Baby!

Newbies Only!
PHOTO CAPTION CONTEST
If you are a previous winner, you CAN'T ENTER! (not this week, anyway...)

Give us your caption for this shot of the Clutch 1 owlets! You can tell us:
What are those silly birds doing?
OR
 What are they saying?
OR
What are they watching?
OR
How the heck does Molly sleep through all that ruckus?!

Usual Rules:
1. Only 1 entry per MOD
     
THOSE WHO HAVE WON BEFORE MUST SIT OUT THIS WEEK; FINALISTS FROM PREVIOUS WEEKS MAY ENTER IF THEIR
   CAPTION WAS NOT THE WINNER.

2. Send your contest entries to mollymovienight@gmail.com
3. Deadline is NOON on Thursday, June 9th, noon PDT.
4. Put your username and PHOTO CAPTION CONTEST in the subject line of the email. Put the caption itself IN THE TEXT OF THE EMAIL.
5. You can't enter if you won the last caption or headline contest.
6. NEW RULE:  Please do not reply to this email - compose a new email to mollymovienight@gmail.com.

We also suggest that you proofread, spellcheck and examine your submissions for unwanted typonese. Our policy is to reproduce the submission exactly as written, in order to preserve the artistic purity of the work.


Your friends at Molly Movie Night,

Kathy and Sylvia

SMALL PRINT:  Judging will be as usual, with one or two guest celebrity judges, plus Kathy and Sylvia. Here's a reminder of the SUPER DUPER FAIRNESS of the judging (thanks mostly to Sylvia because Kathy didn't really worry about anything NOT being fair). This is what happens. People send entries. A NAMELESS person compiles the list of captions without names attached. She sends the list of all submitted captions to Sylvia, Kathy, and guest judges. (Thank  you nameless helper MOD!) Separately, we each pick our top 7 favorites, rank them, and Sylvia tallies the rankings to determine top 4 choices overall. Then she sends them to Kathy to prepare for the poll. More than you ever wanted to know? Yep.  Just want to be sure you all know that you're getting your money's worth here at MMN!

At least the owlets are on it...that's a good sign, right? Right?
Even Trilly is going "Deet-Car-Deet! Deet-Car-Deet" in a
strangely disturbing falsetto Morse Code...hmmmm...is Trilly
just acting like he, she, or IT doesn't know where our CAR has gone?

Hmmmm...

"Car-Deet-Deet! Deetley-Deety-Car...
Oy! Deetley Car-A-La, vhere ahr you, Dahlink?
Deetle-EEdle-CAR-PLUNK!" A PLUNK-A-LA!
Oy, CAR has gone Klezmer! BUT THEN...

Either Trilly or CAR just face-planted into a HORK,
though...not a Daily Hork, a Horkadaisical Mystery Tour...?
Hmmmm....

Thank you, Marifun, for our VERY FIRST CLUE!

Northern Parula Warbler by Gizmomma


Hi MODS,

One thing we have learned editing this blog for the past few months is how much freaking undiscovered talent lurks
among the ranks of our Black Sheep! It has been quite amazing to receive a photograph from someone who adds,
"I don't know if this is any good or not..."

Well, we don't want to hear that phrase EVER AGAIN!

You a Black Sheep MOD, you haz Talent, it hath been decreed!

So, here's photograph of a Northern Parula Warbler taken by our very own beloved Gizmomma that we can see hanging framed in a fine art gallery anywhere in the world, and for sale at a very high price! Just languish in the saturation of color, the composition, the drops of water glittering like stars in a dark night sky punctuated by bright yellows, oranges, and greens! And I'm not even talking about the warbler!

Giz, GET AN AGENT! A PHOTO AGENT! YOU HAZ TALENT!

We encourage your comments and compliments to Giz right here because she needs to GET IT ON!YES: A NEW ART CAREER AS A WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER because - let's face it, Linda - ain't a one of us gettin' any younger around heah!

YOU ARE A ROCK STAR. Now git y'self published and into some local galleries and art shows, else betta get eyes in the back o'ya head cuz the Black Sheep Nation is right behind ya!

Here's to Talent, Generosity of Sharing, Sensitivity to Nature in all its myriad forms, and the skill with which we capture and share that love of wild places and wildlife with others. Giz, you have inspired at least two other photographers to buy good cameras. It's a start. Now, you two photographers who bought good cameras, send us what YOU got!

Yes, that's a DARE!
YumYum ain't 'fraid of YOU!!! LOL!

love,
an editor passing through who loves this Blog and invites readerMODS to contribute
(when i don't have a migraine, which is...well, nevermind, just send and will post when able!)
