The Die-In Caption Contest

This is the 178th world-famous FOTM Caption Contest!

Here’s the pic:

About the pic: A “die-in” in a grocery store on June 12, 2018, National Die-in Day, to protest against the NRA and advocate gun control in honor of the “hundreds of countless lives lost to gun violence in this country each year.”

You know the drill:

  • Enter the contest by submitting your caption as a comment on this thread (scroll down until you see the “LEAVE A REPLY” box), not via email or on Facebook.
  • The winner of the Caption Contest will get a gorgeous Award Certificate of Excellence and a year’s free subscription to FOTM! :D
  • FOTM writers will vote for the winner.
  • Any captions proffered by FOTM writers, no matter how brilliant (ha ha), will not be considered. :(

This contest will be closed in a week, at the end of next Tuesday, June 19, 2018.

To get the contest going, here’s my caption:

What if they staged a die-in and nobody cared?

  5. These nuts and flakes are in the wrong place! They’re not supposed to be scattered on the floor here with the fruits and veggies. They have their own aisle. Besides, it looks like they’ve expired. Time to dump ’em.
