Post-Rapture Latté Winner

Thank you to everyone who entered the caption contest. I giggled repeatedly. It was tough to choose, but choose I did, and the winner of a whole latté is Jamie A. Hughes for the caption:

“Ripple: Putting the Raggedy in Raggedy Ann since 1920.”

Ripple: Putting the Raggedy in Raggedy Ann since 1920

Jamie writes The Tousled Apostle , a deeply insightful, well-written blog about being a musician, a writer, and a Christian. I’m not sure how she ended up here. But I’m glad she did and she gets a latté. Jamie, email me at accidentalstepmom (at) gmail (dot) com and let me know where to send your tiny gift card.

Oh, and if you don’t know what Ripple is, go here.

My favorite honorable mentions were:

Black Hole Under My Couch: “Why do they even call them roofies? Why not floories?… Or what about groundies?”

Pen & Mink: “Not amused by Ann’s decision to moon him on rapture day, Jesus decided she would be better off staying here.”

and Karen @ kloppenmum, with simply: “Bum!”

Everybody who entered, if you ever swing by New York, hit me up and I’ll buy you a latté. Unless I know you and you live here, in which case I’ll meet you for a latté and we can go dutch. (Hey, I have five kids. Deal with it.)

Happy Sunday!

  1. Not winning has set me back two years in therapy. I will be sending you the bills. You should also know that I have BIG TIME friends up der in News Yawks. The have lots of vowels in their names.

  2. Hey, thanks for the honourable mention! And congratulations to Jamie. I will certainly hit you up for a latte if I’m ever in NY (did you pick me because I live soooo far away? hmmmmm, conspiracy theory….)
    Being foreign, I have no idea what a ripple is so will go and check that link now.

    1. Um, no, why not at all, and that’s not why I excluded my friends from the offer either. Really. Your comment was one that I didn’t get until about 30 seconds after I walked away from my computer and then it hit me, and it looked like I was laughing for no reason.

  3. Oh I’m sorry I missed a chance to enter. I’ve been utterly self-absorbed. But I don’t think I would’ve beaten the ripple caption. Ripple is just funny.

  4. Congratulations, winner and runner-ups!
    However, my total favorite was K.’s entry:
    “Typical man. I’ll bet he wouldn’t treat Barbie like this.”
    P.S. Mother Hen loved it too, and gave it her second ever Golden Egg “quote-of-the-week” award (for what it’s worth).

  5. Yay! Honorable mention for my stolen quote 😉 I’d like to thank the Academy, and I’ll certainly take you up on that latte, if I can ever afford a vacation, but let’s face it… I have 4 kids, so I don’t see New York in my future. (Insert tears and Oscar bow, here).

  6. Congratulations to the winner. The picture is funny to start with, the caption is super hilarious, the combination simply brilliant – thanks for a good laugh 🙂

Comment. It gives me a reason not to clean my house.
