The Winner of the First (and last) Crazy Cooking Caption Contest is…Me?

Wow, I can't believe it! I don't know what to say. This is so unexpected - I didn’t even prepare a speech. I would like to thank Food Wishes for this great honor, as well as all the fans that voted. I love you all. I want to thank my wife for all her support, the crazy mac and cheese guy, and…oh, man, I know I'm forgetting someone. Okay, I hear the music…Anyway, this is such an honor, and I just want to say to you all, if you have a dream, go for it. Thank you and God bless.

I had a really funny caption about a Skinhead Anger Management Cooking Class gone horribly awry. But I thought it would be inappropriate for the tone of your site.

Congratulations, nonetheless!

I take this to mean noone entered? I considered it but expected the competition would be tough!

Well, I'll take the consolation prize: tons of amazing recipes :)

(PS hope you got my donation!)

I almost voted for the one about having a hair in one's food, but yours was just more positive and light-hearted. :)

I'm laughing so hard right now I'm crying. The pic of "you" accepting the Oscar is just hilarious. In fact, this whole contest fiasco was a real comedic high for the site. The Oscar pic kills me. I need a tissue.

And good thing you were up front about you writing the winning comment. You almost Milli Vanilli-ed yourself on your own goddamn site.

Instead, you can now rest in the comfort of naming a recipe video after you. I hope you're proud of yourself. I know I am.

Geez-I missed the whole voting thing. I was out of town, and had no web access. I could have spammed myself some votes from family members or something!

Congrats George er I mean John!
