WIN: a copy of That Girl: Season One on DVD

HOW: write a funny caption for an image from the show

THE RULES: If you have not won a prize in one of my caption contests or gimme giveaways in 2006*, and you have a United States mailing address, you’re eligible to win. If one or both of those rules exclude you but you’re moved by the muse of comedy, feel free to send me a caption anyway — you might get an honorable mention… but let me know you’re entering only for fun. (*Micropatrons who’ve snagged some exclusive micropatron goodies are eligible to win one of these prizes.)

Oh, two more simple rules: 1) Be clever, be original, make me giggle. 2) One entry per person.
The first season of the groundbreaking 60s sitcom That Girl arrives on DVD next week in a five-disc set, and to celebrate, I’ve got one box set to give away, courtesy of Shout! Factory. Here’s the scoop on the set from Shout! Factory:

A beloved and landmark television series — and the first to spotlight a young female character taking charge of her life — “That Girl” premiered in 1966 to both critical acclaim for the show, and instant stardom for actress Marlo Thomas. Also serving as the show’s producer, Thomas set out to create a new and revolutionary role for prime time women, proving that they could be strong and independent — and happily single. The gamble paid off: Over the course of five funny, adventurous and fashionably fabulous seasons, effervescent wannabe actress Ann Marie (Thomas) progressed from a naïve young girl who dreamt of becoming a star to a smart, confident woman who could stand up to her parents and become engaged to her boyfriend on her own terms, and never — ever — lost her sense of identity. Set against the backdrop of a glittering, ever-swinging Manhattan, the long-awaited, historic first season of the series (1966-67) will be available on DVD for the first time May 16th.

Watch a preview on Windows Media or QuickTime.

To enter to win the DVD set, send a funny caption for this still from the show:

Joseph’s winning caption: “I understand that rubbing elbows is the network’s equivalent of Eskimos rubbing their noses!”
