Smile Until It Hurts – You Write the Caption Contest


This Contest is over.

Welcome to the second “Write a Caption Contest” on TopTenz. Last week we put a photograph of a llama living it up in New York and our readers came through with over 75 captions. This week we put the focus on a young boy, his mouth and some weird metal mouth stretcher. This photo practically writes its own caption. But let’s see what you can come up with anyway.

As with last week, the lucky winner will receive an Amazon gift card worth $50! (Make sure you are eligible to receive one.)

Contest Guidelines: Enter as often as you like by writing your caption in the comments below. We’ll take entries through Friday (August 3, 2012) and award the winner their gift card by email. Enter your correct email address so we can notify you.
