One more indicator that the year is drawing to a close: the final announcement of our final winner for the final Caption This! Contest of 2012. Where does the time go? That's correct: it gets eaten by the Internet.
We gave you an unpleasant re-imagining of Santa's whip and you gave us a veritable hoard of equally (delightfully!) unpleasant responses in kind. The judges have conferred and after casual exhaustive deliberations, we're happy to announce that we've got ourselves a winner:
Congratulations Mr. Bruce! You pandered to our nerdy biases shamelessly and it totally went your way.
See you all in 2013 (shortly after you've broken your resolutions to stop spending so much time online) for further captioning capers!
