‘Terminator: Genisys’ Contest Results

Our contest has terminated. We promised we’d be back with the results this week, and now it’s time for us to say “Hasta la vista, baby” to these spare copies of ‘Terminator: Genisys’ sitting in our office.

What, you don’t like our ‘Terminator’ catchphrase puns? Chill out, dickwad.

Note: That’s a joke. We don’t actually think that any of our readers are dickwads… Well, except maybe that one guy. He knows who he is.

Anyway, on to the results! As explained in the original post, we challenged you to provide funny or clever captions for the following image:

And the winner is…

Honorable Mentions

  1. Csm101: 1984- “I’ll be back”
    2015- “Oohh.. My back!”
  2. Robert B: Come with me if you want your career back.
  3. Shayne B: We will now send a robotic doppelganger of John Connor’s childhood pet into the future to terminate his grandchildren thus ensuring that John Connor himself is never born. It cannot fail.
  4. Jason: I want you to go back in time and tell Michael J. Fox that the Cubs will NEVER win the World Series!
  5. NJScorpio: Look into my face and see your future. A future of infinite sequels, countless cyborgs, the same plot over and over, breaking you down until you are a caricature of a caricature. A husk of a man shuffled through a fog of green screen and one liners, until your flesh gives out, and your restless soul watches as we recycle your image, across a flood of media and interactive products. We will push the boundaries of technology, your likeness welcomed into homes. You will be everywhere. We will be everywhere. Skynet is not fiction within the franchise, Skynet IS the franchise.”

The Winners!

Of the many jokes and puns about the movie’s dumb title, EM had the best one:

Terminator: Gerytol

I’m also giving one copy to Salvador primarily because I fully support and endorse his sentiment.

“For the last time, tell your buddy Cameron to give us True Lies and The Abyss on Blu-ray!!”

Seriously, what the hell’s the holdup, Jim Cameron?

Congratulations to EM and Salvador for winning ‘Terminator: Genisys‘ on Blu-ray, and thanks to everyone else for participating in our contest.


    • EM

      Thanks for the congratulations! And thanks for participating—indeed, your honorable entry above was very inspirational! I hope all the contestants had a good time.

      And of course, thank you, Josh and the Bonus View, for having the contest in the first place. I’m just glad I didn’t have to make fun of Shatner yet again…

  1. Salvador C.

    I appreciate the congratulations Csm101. Nice work on making the Honorable Mentions. This sure seemed like a good one to participate in. Nice job to all the entries that were submitted. Thanks a bunch Josh and The Bonus View. I have been trying for quite some time to win, and am happy to have won this contest. Keep up the good work fellow participants.

    I’m kidding, I actually enjoy timcharger’s contributions to the site.

      Hey! What’s up with that? I’m not even in this conversation.

      For the record, I’ve participated. I’ve submitted catchphrase puns
      a plenty. I’ll likely never win since I do tussle with Josh. But he likes
      that someone reads the writing carefully. Too carefully, less so.

      • Josh Zyber

        As I recall, you have won a contest or two in the past, Tim, and have received plenty of Honorable Mentions. No one is being intentionally excluded for personal reasons – aside from the spammers and trolls who have been banned from the blog. Given that you’re able to post here today, you’re not among them. 🙂

        If you are able to submit an entry in a contest, it will be considered along with anyone else’s.

          I think they were before the Prometheus or Into Darkness
          or Skyfall or whatever spats. Just saying. I was smarter back then to
          not irk the judge. Dumb move on my part.

          (Hey, let’s keep it a secret that we may not hate each other.)
