Original Contest Details

Gary was a good grasshopper for all of 2013. All he wants this holiday season is a caption for his cartoon.

Usually he turns to us, but we couldn’t think of anything clever, so we thought we’d ask our creative friends, fans, and customers. Help us give Gary a caption!

We’ll select the most creative response (it can be funny, clever, weird, or surprising), and the winner will receive a $50 Amazon Gift Card as well as a Winter Wonder Basket full of treats and surprises.

How to Enter

Submit your captions as a comment to this blog post or on our Facebook page by Wednesday, December 18th.

Submit as many times as you want.

We’ll notify winners by email, so be sure to provide the right one when you comment.

Play nice. By submitting a caption, you are agreeing to our House Rules. We reserve the right to reject unfriendly entries.
