WIN: a prize pack consisting of a poster and a T-shirt from the new flick Idlewild

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 musical drama Idlewild, starring OutKast, Terence Howard, and Ving Rhames, opens on August 25, and to celebrate, I’ve got a prize pack — consisting of a poster and a T-shirt — to give away, courtesy of Universal Pictures. Here’s the scoop on the movie, from Universal:

The story of the loves and ambitions of two struggling performers is told through intricate musical numbers and vibrantly choreographed dance sequences in Idlewild, an original musical starring multi-platinum and multi-Grammy winning OutKast members André Benjamin (André 3000) and Antwan A. Patton (Big Boi).

Set against the backdrop of a 1930s southern speakeasy, Idlewild explores the lives of Percival (Benjamin), the club’s shy piano player, and Rooster (Patton), the club’s showy lead performer and manager. Idlewild synthesizes drama, music, cinema and style to bring the tale of struggling singers to life. It is the feature film-directing debut for Bryan Barber, the award-winning director and longtime OutKast music video collaborator, and includes dance sequences choreographed by legendary performer and three-time Tony winner Hinton Battle.

The all-star cast is a roster of some of the most notable performers in film and music today. Cast members include Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible), Terrence Dashon Howard (Hustle & Flow), newcomer Paula Patton, Faizon Love (Elf), Malinda Williams (Soul Food), legendary recording artist Patti LaBelle (On the One), singer Macy Gray (Training Day), Tony Award winner Ben Vereen (Why Do Fools Fall In Love) and Oscar® nominee and Emmy winner Cicely Tyson (Fried Green Tomatoes).

Idlewild includes new songs from OutKast’s upcoming album, the soundtrack for the movie.
