WIN: a prize pack consisting of a hat and a T-shirt from the new film You, Me and Dupree

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

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 comedy You, Me and Dupree arrives in theaters this Friday, July 14, and to celebrate, I’ve got a T-shirt and a hat to give away, courtesy of Universal Pictures. Here’s the scoop on the show, from Universal:

Carl and Molly Peterson (Matt Dillon and Kate Hudson) are just starting their new life together–complete with a cute house, boring neighbors, stable jobs and the routines of newlywed existence. There’s just one unfortunate hitch in their perfectly constructed new world… 

And his name’s Dupree.

Randy Dupree (Owen Wilson), Carl’s oldest friend and perpetual bachelor, has found himself with nowhere to go after being fired. Carl yanks his jobless/homeless pal out of the bar he’s living in and invites him to temporarily crash on the couch–that’s just what friends do.

At first, Carl is quite pleased to have his good buddy as a permanent couch guest, while Molly bears the brunt of Dupree’s immature antics. But, as Carl becomes buried in his grown-up job, he finds it harder and harder to juggle Dupree and his responsibilities as a husband. To make matters worse, Dupree uses his ample spare time to become a great companion for Molly. Even her dad (Michael Douglas) and the neighbors are falling for his carefree wisdom and charm–frustrating Carl to no end.

Soon, everyone (but Carl) begins to root for Dupree to stick around. But as Dupree starts to become a fixture in the Peterson’s home, three becomes not just a crowd…but a full- blown, hilarious catastrophe.

Directors Anthony and Joe Russo (Arrested Development) tell the wildly comic story of a suburban couple who are just trying to make their new marriage work when her and me unexpectedly becomes You, Me and Dupree.
