OK, we lied. In the April APS News, we said we’d post the best 3 captions for our readers to vote on. We thought we might get a dozen entries. Little did we suspect that the total would be 137. It’s true that two very prolific caption writers broke the rules and submitted way more than one entry per person, but we’re happy that 48 different people submitted entries, ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous. And of course the more ridiculous the better.
The range of opinion on what's funny extended not only to those submitting captions, but to those judging them. It has proved extraordinarily difficult to narrow the selection to five, much less three, but after an epic struggle we have decided on five captions as the finalists in our contest.
Voting ended at 11:59 pm EDT on August 31, 2008. The winner will be announced in the October APS News.
