Official AlpoJones Freakin' Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition

Hey, folks. As you probably saw here previously, the current winner of the Freakin' Green Elf Shorts Competition, AlpoJones, has put up her official Shorts picture for you all to try your hands at captioning in the hopes of winning the vile cherished items.

Whether you have or haven't seen my previous post, don't bother looking for it. I've taken it down in order to avoid some confusion, but we'll get to that in a moment. For now, here is the picture:

Pretty nifty, eh? And HERE is the link to the picture on AJ's Tumblr.

Here's where things might get a little tricky. Tumblr is a strange beast. The good news is you don't have to be a Tumblr user to use the "Submit" function from the menu on AJ's Tumblr. So that's one option for leaving a caption.

On the bad news side of things, even if you are on Tumblr, apparently you can only make comments directly on someone's posts from within your own dashboard. So if you're a Tumblr-er AND you're following AJ, but you missed that particular post, you'd have to scroll down forever to find it - depending on how many people you follow and how prolific they are (and AJ alone is pretty darned prolific).

It seems that your best option for leaving a caption from within Tumblr is via their direct messaging system, assuming AJ has her settings such that she allows messages from non-followers, which I have advised her to do (if she hadn't already). Confused yet? Me too!

Therefore, if you're not already on Tumblr and don't want to be bothered getting an account there, or if you ARE on Tumblr but can't be arsed with all their weird restrictions, then please feel free to leave your caption submissions right here on this post, and I will forward them to AJ.

AJ has established a deadline for submissions of midnight on Halloween, which of course is Wednesday, October 31st, 2018 - that being the midnight between All Hallow's Eve (Wednesday) and All Saints Day (Thursday).

To retiterate:

1. Deadline: 10/31/2018 at 11:59:59 PM PDT.

2. Submit directly to AJ on Tumlbr, or right here.

Happy captioning, everybody. Now GET TO IT!


  1. There's nothing like a good fiddle under my bonnet with a few chums.

  2. Yikes! Looks like the FGES have been taken out along with those Autons!

  3. Yay! Captions! Keep 'em coming! spread the word!

  4. It’s just like Goldilocks being picky. One is missing a leg, one’s barefoot in public, she wasn’t into little people but then she always loved a candystripper errr striper!

  5. I told you, you can see Santas sack from here!

  6. Caption (against my better judgement...): "Having been caught wearing the FGES in public, AlpoJones attempts to fling herself under a passing car, realising too late that she's the fourth fashion disaster victim to do so. How common."

  7. Rimpy,

    I'm all IN!


  8. Awesome! Caption:

    If the election doesn't go the way we want, we can hide under the car and cross over to Canada.

  9. Caption:

    The family that changes the oil together, stays together.

  10. I am a bright spark, I have just noticed a gaping hole that needs plugging.

  11. I couldn't resist. Caption:

    Caitlyn Jenner drives again.
