Purely by accident, I ordered an extra copy of Wes Anderson’s ‘Rushmore’ on Blu-ray recently, even though I already owned that disc. My mistake will be one reader’s gain. Our contest results are in. Read on after the page break to find out who won.
As explained in the contest post, we challenged you to come up with a funny or clever caption for the following image:
We had a good turnout. Here are some of my favorite responses:
Alex started things off on a strong note with these entries:
Vee vill turn over operations to our most trusted operatives, and dey vill hunt down Moose & Squirrel.
The representatives from Mexico and India couldn’t conceal their shame as they saw Russia’s medal count.
I’d like to call to order this meeting of the Youth Stereotypes Association. All those in favor, say “Da!”
The representative from the United States has repeatedly dodged my inquiries. Don’t wait for the translation, answer the question: Where in the world *is* Carmen Sandiego?
I really miss Randy, Paula, and Simon.
“We’re from the governments. We’re here to help!”

R.I.P. Adam Yauch.
The worst performance of “The Safety Dance” ever.
“Yes, but can you do the bottle dance with a sombrero and a LIVE cobra…?”
Vivid’s casting directors gets younger every year…

Yes, We represent the three Blu-ray regions.
We will release Bill Murray once he agrees to be in Ghostbusters 3.

“So, to let us all understand this right, you are saying there is a website called facebook, which is not a physical item and has virtually zero ability to generate money of any kind, but is still worth more than all of our countries combined?”
Keep in mind that, in order to whittle this down to ten honorable mentions and one winner, I had to cut a lot of very amusing entries.
Now, it’s time to announce…
This entry from Max sounds exactly like something Wes Anderson would write:
“Don’t feel bad. You’re not the only one to be kicked out. Just last week we let go Carmen Miranda. Very stubborn… she never changes her fruit. Can you believe that? Rotten fruit on her head, refuses to buy fresh fruit.”
Congratulations to Max for winning ‘Rushmore‘ on Blu-ray from the Criterion Collection, and thanks to everyone else who participated. Even if you didn’t win this time, we have another great contest planned for the very near future.
