"Conquer Club Comic Caption Contest"

Dear all members of Conquer Club,

Today is a good day. And furthermore, we would like to present to you the Conquer Club Comic Caption Contest.

The premise is simple, and you don't need any special skills - graphical, lyrical, the ability to time-travel or otherwise - in order to participate.

But for what? There's a classy General Achievement medal at stake.

Here's the comic:

Image

It's your job to come up with a caption for the third panel.

The real objective? To write a caption which is engaging. It could be funny, disturbingly accurate, thought-provoking, somehow romantic, or really just interesting for whatever reason.

Simply send a PM to ManBungalow with the subject title "Conquer Club Comic Caption Contest" containing your caption. You don't need to edit the image, merely send the text in.

The deadline for submitting your caption is CC Time: 2013-07-7 17:00:00.

All entries shall then be put anonymously to TeamCC members for judging. The author of the most-voted-for caption will be awarded that General Achievement medal.

Technicalities:
Your caption is limited to one sentence.
One entry per person.

"My stratagems and plans would even impress the writer of The Art of War, but the dice consistently give rolls that are about as likely as being hit by two asteroids simultaneously striking your spaceship whilst on an intergalactic cruise to the planet Tyrrus."

I'm finally ready to announce the winner of the CCCCC!

We had a lot of applications, which made things very difficult to judge and all the polls very close.

Congratulations to anamainiacks for his winning entry:

He will walk away with a General Achievement medal.

Thank you to all of those who entered, and keep watching the seas.

I'll post the rest of the entries anonymously for those who are interested. There are some real gems in here:

And an honourable mention to Jdsizzleslice for the caption shown here, which I unfortunately couldn't accept because it's not a sentence.

Sorry, Silkzone, but it has already ended! We have events like this semi-frequently, though, so be sure to keep an eye out!
