Caption This Picture of Winston, Be Hilarious, Win Prizes!

The ‘Make Winston Witty’ Caption Contest Begins Today!

Winston is the lovely, strange and furry companion of Cheezburger employee Will (who you may recognize from LOLwork—the show currently airing on BRAVO about our entertaining Seattle office). We’ve decided that Winston needs some fresh phrases, and we know that you’re the bunch to do it! Just click on the image of Winston above and you’ll be taken to our builder which will help you caption the selected image. The Cheezburger user with the highest combination of reposts and Facebook shares wins the contest and an autographed copy of the new Oatmeal book, How to Tell if Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You—along with a 2013 daily ICHC calendar! Contest ends at 2 pm PST on Friday, and we’ll announce the winner on Monday, December 10. At that point we’ll also also post a different image of Winston to be captioned. So you have two weeks, and two chances to win these awesome prizes—show us your creativity!

Prize Totally Looks Like Winner

Totally Looks Like Yaris contest winner David came to Cheez HQ this Monday to pick up his prize. His options? A package containing a boombox, digital music player and music gift card, or a portrait of himself drawn by Seattle artist Derek Erdman. I think we all know what happened here.

Congrats, David!
