CHRISTMAS CONTEST! (Or Hooray! More Lame Prizes!)

When it comes to SFL there's nothing I love more than my readers. (Well, that and a good Christmas letter.) So, in the spirit of giving, I want to bestow some fantastical gifts to you, my readers. But you've got to work for it.

Below you will see a charming Christmas photograph. Your job is to caption this photo. Enter as many times as you like. The contest runs from today (Thursday) through Saturday at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time. The judges will select their favorites and narrow it down to one lucky winner.

Judges and contest loot will be announced and pictured on Friday. Good luck!

Santa's inner monologue - "I am so getting out of debt this year. I can't take much more of this crap..."

Kristal said...

Dear Santa,
THIS year, I want a Harley.

Christy said...

Still trying for the Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle, Ralphie is now big enough to muscle it out of Santa: "Yo, Santa, see this here bike? Ifin you don't hand me that Red Ryder this year, this here bike is gonna be hangin' around your jolly elfin neck. Capiche?"

The Benge Family said...

"Why do I get all the freaks and the Easter bunny gets to roll eggs with the president?" Santa wonders to himself.

Food delivery for skinny Santa!

Beth said...

No caption. Just many questions. Is that Santa real or the fake one that has a motion detector and sings? Because those creep me out. And where did you find this picture of my cousin? I thought we destroyed all those pictures.

Becca said...

This year, Santa did his family a favor and didn't make the prodigal Clause son pay for his photo session.

Tricia said...

"I asked him for a Harley...but this is way more cool..dude!"

Tricia :)

Helen said...

"I was naughty last year. I made fun of the song "Christmas Shoes", so you brought me this instead of a Harley. But I have been really good this year, and have recorded a rap version of "Christmas Shoes" with my peeps. People have tears in their eyes (and are rolling on the floor) whenever they hear it. Can I have a Harley now? And thanks for not leaving me coal last year..."

Santa to the Helper - The extra dollar an hour is not worth working the age 18 and over line!

"It's sort of what I wanted. I can always regift"

teamstrand said...

Rock On! Judging by the size of things, Santa will be able to fit in my chimney!

SANTA~ "This is the LAST time I hire an apprentice from Craigslist"

GUY~ "This is SOOOOO MUCH better than that Donald Trump show I really wanted to be on"

Marni said...

I'm not a judge, but my vote is for Christy!

wv: hallu--what you get when half the choir is missing from the Christmas Cantata thanks to the flu.

Lu (Lucille) said...

Its a Todd Bentley Christmas!

Kim said...

Who needs a Harley when you can have a Schwinn? Schweet!!

SirMax said...

"This bike is NOT stolen! See Santa gave it to me!"

*slips skinny Santa a $20 to keep quiet*

Marie said...

I just can't beat Pastor Swish. I wish I could....

Jen said...

Whoop there it is.....
Santa's got a brand new ride.

1)Which one is more like to be seen at your children's holiday school program?

2)Dude,can you tell me where the festivus pole is?

Prodigal Jon said...

Guy in glasses is holding up his fingers letting us know,

"I killed two elves and the day's not over."

MadHatter said...

Yo Ho Homey! This is how we roll at the North Pole.

carrie said...

yo dog! when i grow up, i want a big boy bike. i really have been a good boy this year.

rodngeis said...

Dear Friends and Family, Merry Christmas from sunny California. As you may have heard we are now legally married....

Santa's inner monologue-"I sure wish congress would have gone for my sleigh factory bailout so I didn't have to make money from these lame photo shoots. Ever since McD's took the double cheeseburger off the dollar menu I have been losing weight".

Matt and Becca said...

Did Santa steal the Near Beer out of my hand?

Elizabeth said...

And that's when the elves realized their horrible mistake: The bike was meant for Timmy Wilson at 119 Washington Court, *not* Timmy Wilson at 119 Washington Street.

Elizabeth said...

"Sorry, kid-- er, guy-- I'm gonna have to take that bike back. The elves just checked my list thrice, and it turns out you're on the naughty list."

Ryan B said...

Yo, Santa. Forget that sleigh. Check out this ride. It's a Road Racer 3000. Not only will you be able to deliver presents in a more environmentally friendly way (reindeer release a lot of carbon emission if you know what I'm sayin), but you'll be able to keep off all that weight that you lost this year from usin those diet pills I sold you for New Years. Whaddya say?

Church Office Christmas Party 2008
Giddy from an overdose of eggnog, sugar cookies and candy canes, Pastor Smith and Youth Pastor John pose for the camera.

Deb said...

Bad Youth Pastor Idea #47: Dude, let’s have some fun with the church Christmas card this year! It’ll be wicked cool!

Deb said...

Opening the church Christmas card, Elder Smith knew the New Year would bring some staffing changes at First Grace Baptist Community Bible Church Fellowship.

Deb said...

Yes, there ARE better ways I could be spending my time this morning; but few as much fun. Pass me some more eggnog, I'm on a roll!

Deb said...

Razzle Dazzle Christmas man,Razzle Dazzle.

Karen said...

The results of Prancer's broken leg are proving quite disastrous.

Karen said...

...and this is when Santa realized that you never take the prize behind Door Number One.

Deb said...

Even as Billy neared his 30th birthday, his parents couldn’t bring themselves to tell him the truth about Santa.

Nicole said...

Gary had the prefect idea for his Christmas card this year! This way mom will get off his back about a picture with Santa and He can show off his sweet new wheels!!! Maybe this year he will get promoted to Manager of the "Pizza Pit" and he can move out..."COMING MA!!!! geese can't a guy catch a break"

wv: miscogi the new holiday drink at Starbucks ingredients: mistletoe, esspresso, and Christmas cheer (in the form of vodka)

fb said...

Okay - so I posted this in the wrong place - went into a panic thought I had mistyped a word and it turned out bad - and you had to remove it!!! Found it - moved it - oh the stress of Christmas!!!!

After eating way to much Christmas candy, Jon Acuff tries to slip in a visit to Santa - but alas - the paparazzi strike again.

When Mr "Leg Dropping Elf" Grows up.

Deb said...

In reponse to a sagging economy, Santas everywhere adopt the SFL motto: I do have standards. I just forgot where I put them.

One die-hard Journey fan took "Don't Stop Believin'" a little too far.
