RiffTrax Live Family Circus Contest Winners!

August 13th, 2009 by Conor Lastowka · 11 Comments

We have found some winners for our Family Circus Caption Contest!  Thanks to everyone who entered, especially those of you who obeyed the only rule of the contest: to make your caption a line from a RiffTrax or a RiffTrax’d movie.  Very funny entries, not everyone can win, etc.  But here are the ones I particularly enjoyed.

If you’re a winner, please email with your Name, mailing address and if you won tickets, the theater you’d like to see the show at.  (Remember, a list of theaters carrying RiffTrax Live on Thursday, 8/20 can be found here.)

Three Winners get a pair of tickets to RiffTrax Live!

winner 2

This entry from “Kevin” references my favorite line from the ultra-grim short (my favorite kind) about misfit kids, Each Child is Different.

winner 3

This entry, from Danny Gallagher, references a line said by Kevin in the surprisingly mega-popular RiffTrax for Twilight. The line, to reiterate, is said by Kevin.

winner 4

This entry is from Creighton S. and references a line from our Pirates of the Caribbean RiffTrax

That’s it for the tickets.  But we have here two special entries that we’d also like to reward with a signed lobby poster for the Plan 9 show.  Call them the Judges Private Selection if you will.  See if you can identify the common thread:

winner 5

Pjwaldron came up with this The Room referencing caption

winner 1

And Landon Cowan came up with this Room related one, that no matter how dark and evil it is, still made me laugh.

Thanks to everyone who entered, and be sure to come out and see us on Thursday, 8/20 for RiffTrax Live!!!

    I knew I should have used “I’ll cut a slit in your man sack, pull your leg through and make you run the 50 yard dash” from the “Star Trek Generations” riff. Hell, that there is one of the best and funniest things ever said, and it would have won. Rat fart!

    I’m totally and sincerely pumped about winning a poster–thanks. But I’ve been dying to know why the cartoon that I captioned in an honorably mentionable sort of way is signed by H.P. Lovecraft. Any insight on that, Conor, or should I just assume that Bill Keane has been dabbling in arcana too horrible to be spoken aloud?

    Though I didn’t quite “get” the directions I still had fun doing these! Thanks for the outlet! Congrats guys!

    This is even better winning the limo ride in the magazine sale fundraiser all 3 years of middle school!
