Topless Robot DC Meet-Up and Caption Contest

0

First! The Topless Robot Washington, DC Meet-up/Drink-up will be held tomorrow, Saturday the 12th, from 4-9pm at Mackey’s. If you’re in the DC area, I do hope you’ll stop by, since I’m moving in a couple of weeks.

Second! You may have noticed that I have not posted the Avengers Contest results yet. This is partially because I extended the contest because of those Disqus issues, but more because I’m moving in a couple of weeks. The results will go up Monday (hopefully). 
Third! Even though I absolutely have no business doing a contest this weekend, I hate the idea of not giving away my new awesome TR shirts two weeks in a row. So here’s the deal:

Caption Contest! Caption this pic! Three entries per person! The catch is that when I post results, I won’t be doing HMs, just winners (I might stick them at the end of the Avengers contest results, FYI). To enjoy the brilliance and hilarity of the Topless Roboteer legion, you’ll just have to go through the damn entries like I do.
So that’s that. Come to the meet-up! Forgive me for the delayed Avengers contest results! Enjoy this caption contest, which ends at 12:01 am EST on Monday, May 14th! And for the love of all things good and holy, if you haven’t read today’s FFF yet, DON’T. That shit will wreck your whole weekend.

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
