Yes, you.

Don’t get us wrong. We like that sassy, snarky, sometimes even slightly snide sense of humor about you. A lot. So much, in fact, that we’re giving you the chance to strut your stuff in our first-ever Leite’s Culinaria caption contest.

Here’s how it works

Share with us your inimitable, incorrigible, irreverent way of seeing the world in a proposed caption for the photo above. Just type your caption, accompanied by your first and last name, in the comment box at the bottom of this page sometime before 11:59 p.m. ET on next Monday, February 4, 2013. Then check back with us the following day—that’s Tuesday, February 5—when we announce the three finalists, chosen by yours truly, the editors of Leite’s Culinaria. And here comes the best part—wait for it!—your chance to vote. That’s right, we’re relying on you to let us know which caption literally has you LOL, ROTFL, SOL (Snorting Out Loud), or GOL (Guffawing Out Loud). Come back as often as you like, whether to check out the competition or just to get a chuckle, but vote for one of the finalists only once. The winning caption will be announced on Monday, February 11, 2013 and will earn its creator not only the respect of all of us at Leite’s, but also a $100 American Express Gift Card.

Good luck, wisenheimers.

Read the contest’s full rules and restrictions.

And The Winner Is…

It was a tough decision, but we have to hand it—and by “it” we mean a $100 American Express Gift Card—to Charles Pearl for his witty caption: “Okay Sam gave up his pants for the bread, now who is going to get the cheese?” Congratulations, Charles, and many thanks to all.

  1. Surely you can now understand why the Dijon is pivotal, Auguste. If we have no Dijon, then we have no sandwich. If we have no sandwich, then all we share is the bitter lunchtime experience of incompleteness and unfulfilled comestibles spread upon Luc’s stale baguette, quoi?

  2. um, so now you’re interested in joining our gang – does this have anything to do with Jimmy’s bread connections? I think it might…

  3. “Say… Ralphie, are you tryin’ to welch on your bet?! Geno’s Bakery is short one loaf!”

    1. Elisabeth way to bring us back to a simpier time when welching on a bet or being double-dog-dared was a big thing.
