win a copy of ‘The Best of the Electric Company’ on DVD (now closed)

Updated: Shoulda had two winners, so I picked another one.

NOW CLOSED. WINNERS: Michael and Joshua. Click through to read the winning captions.

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.
To celebrate today’s release of the classic children’s show The Electric Company on DVD, I’ve got two DVD copies of the four-disc set The Best of the Electric Company to give away, courtesy of Shout! Factory. Here’s the scoop on the set from Shout! Factory:

With roots in the Motown Sound, Broadway and “The Carol Burnett Show,” The Electric Company became cultural phenomenon in the ’70s as the wildly popular educational television show with big laughs and an even bigger message… teaching children basic reading and grammar skills, with the emphasis on fun. Now, the best episodes are all here in true nostalgic glory, for the first time ever on an expansive 4-DVD set!

Impressive cast (such as Bill Cosby, Morgan Freeman, Rita Moreno and many others) embodied characters and enlivened skits the whole world knows and loves: Easy Reader, Fargo North Decoder, Jennifer of the Jungle, Paul the Gorilla, The Adventures of Letterman, Love Chair, the Short Circus segments featuring Spider-Man and The Roadrunner and much more!

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

Michael’s winning caption: “i don’t care what they do on Sesame Street, but here we won’t seat you until your entire party has arrived.”

Joshua’s winning caption: “[[Red’s Narration]] As I waited for Rita’s response, I took serious thought to stuffing her down my pants for Andy Dufresne.”
