Best Reader Caption for Photo of "Internet Sensation" George Lindell
Last week, we asked our readers to offer suggestions for an appropriate caption for the above photo of the Internet's latest "sensation," George Lindell, for this week's New Times' You Write the Caption contest..
Lindell is now Internet famous for his enthusiastic (to say the least) account of a car wreck he gave to a local TV station that has made the rounds on the Internet, and introduced the world to a new catch phrase: "reality hits you hard, bro."
See some of the video below.
He now has a Facebook "fan" page and is selling T-shirts quoting his catch phrase.
We had a less-than-impressive 20 responses in the comment section of the post, which you can see by clicking here.
We've narrowed it down to five finalists, but only one can win the grand prize: a pay-your-own-way trip to the historic New Times building, a firm handshake, and a lukewarm glass of Phoenix's municipal tap water.
The finalists are as follows:
A) Bokanybreath with "BAM DAMN! Who shoved that hot poker up my BAMHOLE???"
B) R Russell73 with "Meth hits you hard, bro!"
C) Seriously...........with "Ok, yeah, right there. Let me squirm a little more......ahhhh yes, that's it. That feels perfect. Thanks for your help, Bro."
D) dg with "Dude, what happened to my car!"
E) Andrew Thom Ass with "I think I can take two more fingers, Doc...."
