Friday Caption Fun, Round 77

Halo 3 ScreenshotO Red Ring of Death, Red Ring of Death, wherefore art thou Red Ring of Death? Oh wait, I know where you are. It’s pretty hard to miss you when you’re flashing on one of my Xbox 360s. While I go mail myself an appropriately-adorned condolence card, you can look over Halo 3’s brain-flavored double experience playlist of the week. Then feel free to poke around last week’s responses and try your hand at captioning another screenshot. Just don’t slip on my tears. They’re kinda everywhere right now.

  • “Damn, the pharmacist wasn’t kiddin’ … these Magnums are huge.” (Cardo)
  • “Being the last Spartan in line for costumes, Mr. Security got stuck with going as candy corn this year.” (Skelbrute)
  • “This Spartan was tired of being assumed to be a man, so she looked for something to emphasize her girlish figure; unfortunately, this is the best she could find.” (General Vagueness)
  • “This was not the kind of silly-cone implant I had in mind!” (Gi85on)
  • “Somebody got killed by a traffic cone and got Recon armor. Let’s see what happens when I kill somebody AS a traffic cone!” (shadowsquid86)
  • “While I liked Halo “Risk”, this new version of Halo “Sorry” just wasn’t that fun.” (ZZoMBiE13)
  • “Blue had an almost perfect plan to win “scariest costume” at the annual Halloween party. He however forgot one thing, Dare was invited…” (Uccxxxv)
  • “Cone’d.” (Visitor at home)

Getting cone’d is a fact of life for many of us unfortunately. I don’t think the Elite in this next screenshot can say the same though (unless one of those traffic-diverting markers manages to score some serious air). I do believe this Sangheili is waiting for a witty statement though and last time I checked it wasn’t all that patient so hurry up and caption already! It’s not like I”m asking you to play SWAT against it or something, jeez.

    “Bunch of monkeys on your ceiling, sir! Grab your egg and fours and let’s get the bacon delivered.”

    A nice obscure one to start you off. :D

  2. Arby says:

    Inspired by Avatar, the Sangheili attempted his own bonding ritual.

    • Arby says:

      Becoming increasingly frustrated by the number of “Elites are fat” comments, the Sangheili set out to prove everybody wrong.

    • Arby says:

      Before the Banshee..

    • Arby says:

      ‘..and you thought Campers were annoying!..’

  3. WolfKing4 says:

    hi ho silver away!

  4. IcyTreats says:

    The Elite took the whole ‘players flying Pelicans’ thing wrong.

    • IcyTreats says:

      Oh, and angel, too bad about the RROD :(
      You have my…..condolences :)

  5. OwlAsssassin says:

    Here comes the cavalry! Wait, WTF?

  6. Absolute Edge says:

    Although glad to be back as an adversary in Halo: Reach, Mr Ascetic ultimately drew the short straw when it came time to visit the vehicle depot.

  7. Glasses Guy says:

    So, as the red-neck elite waited for the deer, he remembered his wife/sister.

  8. NINJA Dusk2Dawn says:

    Best Sniping Spot EVER!!!

  9. Cleansing Aura says:

    And here we see how the rising force of Avatar fandom, is even starting to appear in Halo. MAN THE VOLCANOES!

  10. JLay says:

    After seeing the UNSC’s seagull turret, the Covenant answered back with sniper pterodactyls!


    Bungie’s banhammer was so effective that modders had to start going to extreme lengths to find inaccessable sniping spots.


    Does this qualify as Dino on Dino action?!?


    While the ewoks were successfully in defeating the Empire, they were not so lucky against the Covenant

  11. LOLERNATOR says:

    The lack of green torpedoes and plasma bullets did not mean this new aircraft was projectile-less…

  12. FALCOR!!!!

  13. Declan C says:

    The all new Covenant “Banshee”.

  14. soulofaqua says:

    They see me flyin’, they hatin’. With Banshees they tryin to catch me flyin’ birdies! tryin to catch me flyin’ birdies! tryin to catch me flyin’ birdies!

  15. Monkey_lord says:

    James Cameron has nothing on me!

    Now where is that seagull sporting mini spartan and mini gun?

    To victory!

  16. General Vagueness says:

    I totally didn’t think mine was good enough, wow.

  17. General Vagueness says:

    Unhappy with the Falcon, the UNSC decided to make another little sister to the Pelican and name it appropriately– thus was born the Spoonbill.

    • IcyTreats says:

      Spoonbill, lol.

  18. Someone says:

    I’m more worried about the sniper going through the birds neck

  19. Cailus says:

    There are many things that the UNSC do not know about their new allies. The extent to which the Sanghelli enjoyed cross-species rape with sniper rifles was, frighteningly, one of the least disturbing.

  20. halcylon says:

    Toruk Makto, Rider of Last Shadow.

    Its an Avatar thing :)

  21. Rakolai says:

    The UNSC was not the only faction affected by budget cuts.

  22. The Flying Spartan says:

    “What? They were all out of speeder bikes”

  23. Zwooosh says:

    I wanna fly like an eagle… To the sea… Fly like an eagle, let my spirit carry me!

    Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun
    I’ll be sittin’ when the evenin’ come
    Watching the ships roll in
    And then I watch ’em roll away again, yeah

  27. Gin says:

    In exchange for technology after the war, humanity gave the elites old VHS tapes of Dino Riders.

    • Gin says:

      Also sorry to hear about the red ring, I am currently in one as well on one of my 360’s.

  28. Sean Bradley says:


  29. ZZoMBiE13 says:

    Wow, I have absolutely nothing for this one. I feel so helpless.

    *sad face

  30. ODST Alpha says:

    In a nod to the recent James Cameron film, the Elite attempted and successfully mounted his own flying reptilian creature…

  31. pwkwsfi says:

    • augustelc says:

    Rejected Halo Wars aerial attack concept.

  38. Atlas says:

    “Next on ‘Planet Earth’, as we scour the jungles in search of the rare Red Tiger, the crew stumbles upon something that was quite unexpected.”

    • Atlas says:


      • Atlas says:

        Though the wreck wasn’t his fault and insurance covered the damages, Jack’s rental was not what he had planned.

  39. DethPwn says:

    Bug’s Life: The Machinima!

  40. HellCat says:

    “its alright!” “what is it” “Mynocks”

    Is it just me or do those creatures look like Mynocks?

    • Techchild says:

      Now Uuthrum, when I said go fly a chicken I bloody-well didn’t mean it!!!

  41. SHAGGYDEATH says:

    I can’t believe I gave up my energy guzzling banshee for this Eco friendly sub compact!

  42. “Hello, I’m a nocturnal placental mammal of the order pterodidae, or ptero-didn’t-I… In case you can’t tell, I’m a bat!” Bonus points for those who get what this is from.


    “Oh so the Demons have snipers now, do they? Well Id like to see Emile do this!”


    “I love my sniper. I love that I can fly. I love big targets, and when Spartans die! I love the whole world, and all its sights and sounds! Boom de yadda, boom de yadda, boom de yadda…”

  62. Marksman says:

    The Elites took one more step towards Japanese culture (The Duel*cough*) by introducing; the Kamikaze.

    A bird in the Hand in worth two under that Elite’s bush.

    SPARTAN: “Huh, I’ll believe that when Elites fl— uhh, the Fat Lady sings.”

  63. Marksman says:

    Dynomite… fly someday.

    Dino/Dino… the Jurassic Park sex tape. Revealed.

  64. I would throw in a reference to the Never Ending Story, but that would mostly translate to re-imagining a stringy, bony muscle-less bird thing into a giant nightmare-fuel Dog made out of balloons… And then the kid was an alien.


  65. Morpheus300 says:
