WIN: one of three prize packs from the new CGI-animated flick The Ant Bully

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

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 new animated film The Ant Bully — starring the voices of Nicolas Cage, Julia Roberts, Paul Giamatti, Ricardo Montalban, Regina King, and Bruce Campbell — opens this week, and to celebrate, I’ve got three prize packs of goodies to give away, courtesy of Warner Bros. Here’s the scoop on the movie, from Warner Bros.:

Poor 10-year-old Lucas Nickle (Zach Tyler Eisen) can’t get a break.

Recently moved to a new city with his family, he hasn’t made a single friend. He gets nothing but grief from his teenage sister, Tiffany (Allison Mack), and not a whole lot of attention lately from his parents (Cheri Oteri and Larry Miller), who are busy planning their big anniversary weekend trip to Puerto Vallarta. Meanwhile, his loving but kinda kooky grandmother Mommo (Lily Tomlin) spends all her time trying to protect the family from those space aliens she’s been reading about in the grocery store magazines.

To make matters worse, Lucas has become the number one target of neighborhood bully Steve, who never misses an opportunity to push him around.

In turn, Lucas delights in destroying ant hills in his yard—venting his frustration on the defenseless mounds of dirt and their tiny inhabitants by kicking them, stomping them and squirting them with the garden hose.

But, unbeknownst to Lucas, there is a whole world alive and busy just underneath his feet, and what he sees as “just a bunch of stupid ants” are actually members of a complex society, with names and relationships, responsibilities and emotions. They’re getting mighty tired of having their homes trampled by Lucas The Destroyer. And they are ready to fight back.

My review of the film is here.

3rd prize: a theatrical poster

To enter to win a prize pack, send a funny caption for this still from The Ant Bully:

1st prize: Lester. His winning caption: “…on the way to his very first fetish ball…”

2nd prize: Robert. His winning caption: “When we land, stay clear of the fish bowl. I’ve lost more buddies that way!”

3rd prize: Tom. His winning caption: “Look you can see your ant hill from here!!!”
