Tokyo Five Caption Contest: The Winners!

(Photo courtesy of

This week’s caption contest brought in over 350 entries — and yet none of them were references to Dr. Manhattan. Crazy. After considering all of your brilliant work, we’ve chosen three winners who will score Five Principles t-shirts from Tokyo Five. But first, some honorable mentions:

Desimus: Here you can see Rogan and Vera playing a game of "Guess where bits of my face will end up!"

Smitty: Yes, to the gentleman in the back…..I wear the speedo to show why I talk like a black man.

Ring_Rust619: "Hey honey, this is how many fights I have left till we have to rely on you winning fights to pay the mortgage"

Phil Bologna: "Strikeforce is that way!!!"

therussianglamourpuss: Brandon Vera and Joe Rogan point to their modesty and objectivity, both of which remained a good distance away.
therussianglamourpuss: Brandon Vera would rather go naked than wear Tapout.
[Ed. note: Great first effort, glamourpuss. Welcome aboard.]

ArmFarmer: I’m not reading 6 pages of this bullshit. I’m just going to assume that like the first page there is about 2 funny comments per page, the rest are unfunny to the point that they are painful to read, and 80% of them have something to do with an auction or a clock.

And now, your grand-prize winners:

MMAExpertNewb: Vera and Rogan team up to show us the next letter we’ll see on Vera’s record.

Vlad: Two men pointing in three different directions.

WeTheCecilPeoples: "To obscurity, and beyond!!!!"

If you’ve won, please send your real name, shirt size, and address to, and we’ll hook you up ASAP. If you’ve lost, head to and buy something to make yourself feel better. Thanks to everyone who played!

this photo was taken after someone in the audience shouted "how many elbows will it take to end your career?"

I liked Jesus Farmers:

"Brandon thinks he's pointing at his near future, Joe Rogan corrects him by pointing out Jon Jones elbows."

It incorporates all the visible information while adding metaphorical elements and subtle humor.

@Rex13 You got shafted! Damn!

Of those three though, MMAExpert's was pretty damn good.

Although points to Vlad for consistency. Would've liked to thrown my hat in the ring for this but there was seriously over 250 responses by the time I even saw it lol YOU MANIACS!
Ring_Rust619- March 26, 2010 at 10:00 am
@Rex13... well then I guess I'm honored

Glamourpuss was robbed.
ReX13- March 26, 2010 at 9:40 am
Ring Rust619>> Yes. They "mention" you.


Ring_Rust619- March 26, 2010 at 9:24 am
Nothin for the honorable mentions ???
cecils_pupils- March 26, 2010 at 9:09 am
Hmmm... I guess the obvious jokes about dick size, clocks, pull my finger, and auctions just aren't clever enough for the Ben's - not even a banana hammock joke made honorable mention (?).

So I guess if I really want win a T-shirt someday I'll have to use something completely and ridiculously absurd/obscure. Humor is so subjective... meh, double meh.

fuckin bitch kill mrmph!!!!!
dranokills- March 26, 2010 at 7:46 am
congrats to the winners of those shirts, but don't believe you are really getting a shirt. trust me that isn't happening it's just fun that the Bens have at your expense, no shirt is coming.
Phil Bologna- March 26, 2010 at 7:28 am
I was so close, but yet... so far. "I guess i was like the Brandon Vera of this caption contest."

The Buzz Lightyear one was pretty good.

The rest, meh.
SweetAfflictionShirt- March 26, 2010 at 6:38 am
pfff I didn't even want that stupid shirt anyways! These are so unfair! I hate you guys!
Duke- March 26, 2010 at 6:25 am
Weak choices. None of those were funny.
Jabsent- March 26, 2010 at 6:25 am
