Caption Contest Photo #4
We saved Grandma from being run over by a reindeer!
He started it! It was self defense!
We’ve got 99 problems but Rudolph ain’t 1!
“Leave the gun, keep the cannoli.”
You’re the winner in my book, Christine. It made me laugh out loud.
It just….exploded! As you can see, we’re still quite traumatized.
Um, it’s a REINDEER GAME! Yeah, that’s it – it’s a *game*. OK, Rudolph, your turn. Rudy….? Buddy…?
Double Trouble!! Rudolf didn’t have a chance!
We thought it was Dasher, Dancer, DINNER, and Blitzen! Our mistake…..sorry.
We wanted to help Santa, so Rudolph had to go
We thought Santa might need more fluff for his beard!
Look! We captured the missing Reindeer in Whinlatter!
Look- it’s filled with cotton candy
“We did more than laugh and call Rudolph names…”
Uh oh… we sure knocked the stuffing out of that guy! When Mom comes home, she’ll knock the stuffing out of us!
– It wasn’t us. The perpetrator went THAT way.
This is why Santa skips our house
We thought reindeer were full of magic, not white fluff
We though reindeer were full of magic, we got jipped!
We want to ride Santa’s sleigh this year!!
All right folks; stand back, clear the area, this is a crime scene now.
Santa, I told you I wanted to pull your sleigh this year!
Move along folks, nothing to see here.
Santa… We’ve got Rudolph!!!
Rudolph – 0 Dogs – 2
We were next in line for the sleigh
We’re sorry Santa, we didn’t know he was your favorite reindeer!
Trying to take Rudolph’s place. ‘Where’s my red nose’
In our defense…Rudolf was being a jerk. Sorry, not sorry.
We aren’t sorry, the Elf is next
They USE to laugh and call him names …
Dear Santa – You’re next.
We will never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games…Ever!
No more coal or Blitzen’s next.
hum no caramel nugget filling
Oops I didn’t realise you had a cold – I thought you said it was “Rudolph the dead nose reindeer”!
We get to pull sleigh now, right? SLEIGH RIDE!
Oh no Santa is real!! Hurry hide rudolph!!
See? We can share-I get the outside, and he gets the inside!
Remember in our Christmas letter to tell Santa how we’ve been extra good this year!!
I swear there were 9 of them – we grabbed this one, but the others got away. Sorry.
He wouldn’t let us play any reindeer games…
We are sorry we failed you Rudolph. We tried to save you but the other Reindeer took their bullying way to far. This is a sad day indeed.
“And this reindeer came down the chimney over there. At first, they were just laughing and calling him names – then things got ugly…”
We are gathered here today to honor the life and memory of Rudy. Death has come to him as it does to all our beloved stuffed friends.
Does this mean we’re on the naughty list?
We thought Reindeer Games were more like the Hunger Games.
You said let it snow, so … we made snow.
Down in history.
Hey cat! You’re going to be in big trouble when Mom gets home!
I hope the elf on the shelf wasn’t looking….Umm… Let’s go get him too! NOT SORRY!!
The Elf on the Shelf did it. We tried to stop him, but he over powered us.
How were we supposed to know he only could play reindeer games…sheesh!
Our next victim is over there… So not sorry…
We ate Rudolf because that fat man ate our cookies!
His nose was too shiny and he was always bragging about being Santa’s favorite! Sorry we’re not sorry!
We are the Grinches who stole Christmas. Not sorry…ok, a little sorry.
Dear Santa: Rudolph is sick. Can we take his place?
He was going to tell santa to put you on the “naughty” list. You’re welcome.
HIs nose was too bright! We were just trying to turn it off.
We saw mommy kissing Santa Claus – so we took out his GPS system! He won’t be able to find his way back to do THAT again!
Next time you’ll let us join in your reindeer games
Just because his nose glows, he just didn’t fit in!
We were thinking reindeer instead of a turkey this year.
Santa isn’t gonna be happy about this. Bad idea.
The elves can put him together again, right?
The Brussels Cook(er)
“At least the nose is still there – aren’t we good?”
Some say there’s no such thing as Santa, but after we ate Rudolph; we believe…
Rudolph the red nose reindeer, had a very tasty leg …
Santa wouldn’t pull over so we shot out his front reindeer
I chase cars and never catch them, but I chased a sleigh and came oooh so close
Tell the rest of the reindeer that this is how we treat your pagan holiday traditions in Amish Country.
We jingled the bells right out of him, Merry Woofmas!
Oh man are we in trouble! “We”? I had nothing to do with this.
…so then i says to the the cat,….i says,….’NO!DON’T DO IT!’….yeah.yeah.that’s what he say’s…..
Who was that masked man???
Do you hear Santa coming??? Hurry, he checked the list once…hide it so he can’t check it again!
What, we were dreaming of a white Christmas.
Santa Claws is a scary cat!
Now look what you did to Rudolph! Hope you can pull a sleigh!
just exploded in front of us… we tried to save her…we’re sad, very sad…
no, there’s no reindeer here…
Rudolph! Now you did it, Santa will never find our house.
…and this is how we found him, mom. Honest….
He ran over grandma. We beat the stuffing out of him!
No more reindeer games.
Just remember mom: the song said he HAD a very shiny nose…
Rudolph got run over by a reindeer, walking home from our house Christmas Eve,
One down, seven more reindeer to go.
dude here comes santa quick hide the dead reindeer and pretend he stuffing is snow or we aint gonna get any presents
On the second day of Xmas my true love gave to me…..2 rudolph murdering Boston Terriers
I just wanted to see if it really is what’s inside that counts. Nope.
We thought you said you wanted “stuffing” with dinner;)
Thanks for making us gingerbread cookies..but they didn’t taste too good 🙂
Olive, the other reindeer, paid us a lot milkbones to make sure she gets a chance to lead Santa’s sleigh.
We finally the scoundrel who tries to break in every year! You’re welcome!
He made fun of her underbite. I had to defend her honor. Just bein’ chivalrous, thank you.
All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names…so we put him out of his misery.
It was looking at us funny…
We killed Rudolph. Christmas is cancelled.
Rudolph won’t be guiding any sleigh tonight!
Up on the rooftop there arose such a clatter… we just didn’t want him to wake you up!
Rudolph’s nose is red. So are our faces. We’re sorry.
“Now you really have done it Brutus! What are we going to do with this body of evidence?!!”
“I thought you said we were supposed to bring stuffing for Christmas dinner….”
Now that escalated quickly
Santa did it!
Rudolph lost the reindeer games.
Blitzen did it! He went that way!!
He laughed and called us names…
“Rudolph got ran over by some Bostons”
Quick! Call 911, the cat has been at it again!
Run Rudolph Run
“He did it!” ——>
“It was all here in black and white!! I promise!”
“Rudolph had it coming…”
“I tried to stop him, but he threw the squeeker and who can resist a squeeker?!”
Dashing through the — No.
Emily Douglass (@emeebird)
“We wanted to help the Grinch steal Christmas.”
“Nose so bright”??? Don’t think so.
The other reindeer might have laughed and called him names, but WE did the real dirty work.
You didn’t share any stuffing at Thanksgiving, so we decided to find our own for Christmas!
Reindeer games gone bad! Real bad!
♪♪♪♪ Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer had a very shiny nose and if you ever saw it, you would chew him full of holes! ♪♪♪♪♪
He Squeaked at us funny… and his nose glowed
Wait. What do you mean Santa is always watching?
Santa’s gonna need someone else to guide his sleigh Christmas eve night!
The land of lost toys
“Uh oh! Now who will guide Santa’s sleigh?”
Rudolph went down in history.
“you asked us to make the stuffing!”
Great Jimmy…now I have to work Christmas. Get a shovel…
“Fredo, you’re my older brother, and I love you. But don’t ever take sides with anyone against the family again. Ever.”
We can explain……
Dude we are so gettin’ coal for Christmas
We ate Dasher and Dancer, chewed up Prancer and Vixen,
destroyed Comet and Cupid, annihilated Donner and Blitzen,
But do you recall?
The tastiest reindeer of all?????
Oh deer, I’ve been naughty
Does anyone know CPR?
We killed Rudolph, now Christmas is cancelled!!!
Uh, we’re not comfortable with flying reindeer…we saw that nose and it glowed! Not anymore…ha ha ha!
Guess Santa can’t fly with Rudolph in ICU…looks like we get ALL the presents on his sleigh!!
We saved you from the red nosed intruder!
Quick, look away from the camera! Santa won’t think we killed Rudy!
“The neighbor’s dog…….you know the one, we think his name is “Not Me”, Yeah, well, he was over this afternoon…..We, we tried to stop him……he was too fast and too quick for us…….”
Kinda gives a new meaning to “Run, run Rudolph” doesn’t it?
It wasn’t us! The green dog did it!!
Oh crap!! Santa ain’t gonna stop here now!!!
We took teaching Rudolph to play dead too literally.
Take that with your reindeer games!
“Hurry, hide the body with the others!”
REINDEER HIT LIST
Dont worry we got him Grandma!
We got Rudolph…no need to worry about fat men in suits coming in the middle of the night…
Grandma’s pups got revenge on Santa’s rain deer for running her over.
Rudolph had it coming.
What? You said he was going down
We sent Rudolph to the Island of Misfit Toys
But MOM…..you kept singing that he ran over Grandma……so we umm took care of him for you.
“There’s another fine mess you’ve gotten us into.”
Lauren Wegrzynowicz Zluchowski
Listen. The cat did it..we don’t know nuthin
Definitely on the “Naughty List!”
Give us the cookies, or Prancer is next!
Can we please have a sewing machine instead of a bone? We really didn’t know it was Rudolph until it was too late!
That creepy elf on the shelf is next
How many times do I have to tell you??! I will NOT write a letter to Santa for you because THERE IS NO SANTA!
Merry Christmas ya filthy animal.
Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, had a very shiny nose….HAD!!
GREAT!!!! You killed Santa’s driver!! How are we going to get the new treats now, huh?? The nerve…….I’m so ashamed of you. Oh, and I am not cleaning that up!
I’m with stupid –>
Grandma got run over by a reindeer, we took him out…
We need a new reindeer toy. This one was vegetarian.
He was chocking honest,we saved him, see what he coughed up.
Sorry spelled choking wrong!!
I ritually sacrificed Rudolph
And I chanted!
Rudolph’s dead! We’ll guide your sleigh tonight!
We did a Heimlich on Rudy & this is what came up. He’s, uh, resting now. Really.
We need gravy with the stuffing!
He didn’t have any Christmas spirit
Sue Ellen Nussbaum
You hide the body, I’ll take care of the stuffing.
Its ok Mum, we caught the imposter!
It was the bumble, we swear!
Rudolph the red nosed….uh oh!! He did it —->
Stay calm…no body, no naughty!
I thought you said reindeer was the other white meat. Oops
We were under the mistletoe… one thing led to another.. then he squeaked! It all happened so fast.
We’re Rudolph’s replacements!
Keep moving folks… Nothing to see here.
Rudolph was going to tell Santa Paws on us… we took care of care of him… and then mom found us before we could hide the evidence… now Christmas is never coming.
Hannah Van Pelt
He’s just…uh…showing us how to make snow angels!
“Ho! Ho! Oh…”
But he wouldn’t let us play in any reindeer games!
Curly and Mo look to Larry for direction,
What to do with the evidence?
Quick get the duct tape. Maybe Santa won’t notice…..
I think I sprained my paw protecting us from Rudolph…I am so ashamed
I guess this puts us on the “naughty” list.
I guess this puts us on Santa’s “Naughty” list.
What part of “Run, run, Rudolph” didn’t you understand?
Ok, that takes care of Rudolph. On to Comet and Blitzen…
We are done, so done, with you little reindeer games.
We decided Rudolph wasn’t worthy of joining our pack.
The cat did it…
The reindeer games got a little ruff!
You mean the reindeer on the roof wasn’t trying break in and steal all our toys?! He came with a gang!
We ate Santa’s sleigh leader! Now we are on the naughty list for sure…Unless Dasher is looking for a nose job?
Hide the evidence!! Maybe Santa won’t notice!!
–Members of the Naughty List for life
If we can’t pull Santa’s sleigh, no one can!
Dog 1: i ate Rudolph
Dog 2: i try to hide the evidence
Lisa Marie Krieger
It was Rudolph’s idea to play reindeer games….
We can explain… “
Can we have Suspect #1 please step forward and turn to the left.
We thought Rudolph ate Santa’s beard…
We heard what you did to Grandma…
Three men in…two men out!
“I told you just to rough him up a bit, not kill him! We can’t write a ransom note now!”
we’re from the island of misfit dogs
Deck the reindeer, it’s so funny… Fa La La La La… La La La La..
I guess Rudolph doesn’t like our reindeer games!
But, you mean to tell us this is not the game Operation?
Yew told us dat weaindeers can fly. . You should be ashamed.
Dear Santa: We’ve been very good. Kinda. Sorta. Maybe… ohhh crap!
Look at that damn cat, laughing at us from behind the Christmas tree. We get blamed for everything in this house. Maybe this year the Christmas tree falls on him.
Alexa Binnion MacPherson
Another one bites the dust!
Let’s be honest, he was a little full of himself, don’t you think? What with the song and the cartoon and the lawn ornaments. We just made him a little less, ya know, FULL! You’re welcome.
No Reindeer games allowed!
But mom, he was a Yankees fan!
I VOTE FOR THIS ONE — TERRIFIC!
(signed — Red Sox fan)
Our reindeer games got a little rough…oops.
Ok, we know what your thinking, but he started it. You gotta stop bringing home crazy toys. We’re just glad everybody is ok…except him…
…I have to poop.
Now Santa can never leave! You’re welcome.
Where did that darn Elf go?!?!?!…Now they think it was our fault!
I told you the one with the red nose was up to no good. See he is filled with snow!
I need two CCs of stuffing, STAT!
Hes dead Jim
His nose didn’t glow, so we tried to change his bulb! Merry Christmas!
“We forgot the safety word”
He left us on the island of misfit terriers. We are not sorry.
Bummer! You didn’t say he had eight pals!
We punished Rudolph because Santa only brought us soft gifts last year.
Grandma didn’t get run over by this reindeer.
Well that’s what happens when you run, run Rudolph.
T'laryth Phalyn (@eclecticsanity)
Dear Santa, Bring cookies & chewies or Prancer is next.
1 down, 8 to go! where’s that trail mix?
You told us to guard the house. We thought it was a burglar, we are so sorry.
Rudolph started it, but we ended it. You’re welcome.
That red glowing nose scared us!
Look, if he’s actually going to fly he needed to lose some weight…
You went and abandon us for hours christmas shopping and we got hungry. So we used are initiative and thought we’d have venison for lunch…instead we got fake snow. Opps! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
That’s no venison steak!
This is gonna be bad.
Yea, real bad!
He wouldn’t let us join in any reindeer games, so we started our own! Who’s next?
Please don’t call PETA, we’ll get on the good list before Christmas, we promise!
We didn’t want to play his reindeer games.
What we have here is a failure to communicate.
We blame Rudolph.
Famous reindeer? Not anymore!
I’ve been nice, but he’s really been naughty so here’s my list.
Rudolph wouldn’t play any reindeer games with us. What a bully!
Reindeer. The other white meat.
Quick, their coming, no time to run….act natural, don’t even look at it so they won’t think we know anything about it.
We wanted to know if reindeer tasted like chicken
Don’t make eye contact…
Do you think this will get us on the naughty list?
Who??? Us…dogs?? Ashamed?? Not!…Rudolph’s the one who’s popped…uhhhh, we mean pooped all over the place! Sorry! (Not really sorry!)
The perp went thattaway!
“Rudolph had it coming!”
Look out Donner and Blitzen, you’re next!
btw..loooove the sight! Good luck with the baby! Congrats!
Hannah Van Pelt
Oh Holey Night
Uh oh! Santa’s giving us the “evil eye” ’cause we knocked the stuffing out of his lead reindeer.
“I ripped open the bag of Christmas presents.”
“I pooped on the Christmas presents.”
Ashley Nicole Housenga-Clark
dog 1 :Dear Santa, I didn’t know I couldnt do that!
dog 2: Dont let him fool ya, hes been workin at his inards for a while. he knew EXACTLY what he was doin!
Nothing to see here… just some reindeer games!
Shoot! I think we left some evidence over there.
No one messes with Boston, no one, got it reundeah?
What reindeer? Where? Do you see any reindeer, Buddy? Lay off the “Christmas Cheer”, Ma!
The Naughty List is next.
What do you mean … ‘Santa can’t come this year now ‘ ???
Someone get Santa a flashlight.
What do you mean no more reindeer games???
We were just playing reindeer games and Rudolph called us a name.
<-I provide the animals, its not my fault he doesn't play nice
We thought he needed a nose job
Just playing reindeer games…….
Reindeer?… What reindeer?… We don’t see any reindeer.
Dogs that are brothers shame together.
Rudolf posted that we were on the naughty on his facebook page… We de-friended him. (and de-stuffed him)
Don’t worry! We were just protecting Grandma’s everywhere!!
We figured out why Rudolf’s nose glowed!!!! He was filled with all this white stuff! Soooooo, we fixed it for him! Make sure to tell Santa how good and HELPFUL we have been this year. Ok, Mom. Mom? Momma? Mommy?
We are the Terrible Terriers!
We disapproved of Rudolph’s aggressive recruitment techniques!
Now there’s an opening on Santa’s sleigh-pulling team. Do you think he’ll notice we don’t have horns?
I saw on the movie TED you can always wish on a star to get it sewed back together…
His Reindeer Games were getting a bit out of control – and then when his light started glowing…. it was more than we could take
Christmas just EXPLODED in here!
We set free Rudolph’s internal Abominable Snowman!
We were playing Operation, but Rudolph’s nose just wouldn’t light up. He tragically didn’t make it through the procedure.
Pffffffffftttttt! Rudolf couldn’t handle our reindeer games!
