Update by edhat staff

With over 100 submissions, we debated and argued which one is "the best." Obviously, it's subjective so we narrowed down the funniest captions and selected the one we could all agree on, even Ed. 

Congratulations to Jolinda who submitted this winning caption:

"Somehow I ended up here after looking for parking at the new Target..."

Below are some honorable mentions:

"The hills are alive, with the sound of RAAAAAAWWWRRRR!!!" -Monkeyboy

"If you're happy and you know it clap your... oh." -SB845

"Santa Barbara County officials partner with InGen to introduce a new helicopter deterrent species to the region." - SBATLIEN

"What you looking at? Oh, and a camera too! Sheesh, can't a guy poop in peace?" -ParvoPup

"When you finally stop to smell the flowers and wind up going extinct." - NCLARK

"Florassic Park!" -ANTUSAIL

Good choice EdHat! Topical and funny. That parking lot is kinda funny, kinda sad, and kinda scary, just like the dino.

I thought MONKEYBOY'S was the best (The hills are alive . . .rowwwrrr) and the clap your hands one is okay, but it's an old T-Rex joke that's been done before.
