Alien Caption Contest We have a winner!

May 13, 2016

Just a year after the Matt Damon vehicle "The Martian" brought our attention to life on Mars, we got a caption contest winner who playfully switched up a famous movie quote with a new idea!

Michelle Woolhiser won this year's caption contest with her winning entry:

"Martians, we have a problem."

So clever, fun, simple, and, well, winning!

Here were some other great captions:

  • "Take-off"
  • "Smells like feet in here," the small green alien said to the larger gray one upon lift off. "You spent too much time with the hippies in Oregon."
  • "We're here to party, we come in peace."
  • "We're gonna need a bigger ship."
  • "Let's leave and go find a real planet. Sorry Pluto."
  • "It's just like home!"
  • "Never trust a meteorologist!"
  • "Off Season"
  • "Let's go show McMinnville how it's REALLY done."
  • "Blast Off!"
  • "Hoth has never looked so peculiar..."
  • "Winter Migration"
  • "National Lampoon's Europa Vacation"
  • "Spaceships: because the ice caps weren't melting fast enough already"
  • "RESERVE YOUR SPACE SEAT NOW. THERE'S NOT MUSHROOM LEFT."
  • "Are you sure this is the right place?"
  • "Honey I told you we should've asked for directions! Now we're at the Wrong beach!"
  • "Down Time"...
  • "It's not like our beachfront."
  • "Sandcastles and rocketships."
  • "Take us to your leader.....uhhhh."
  • "Last one up is a rotten egg!"
  • "Stop revving the rocket. You're melting the ice cap!! Don't worry, the humans won't blame us. They have a different theory."
  • "They came with parkas."
  • "The beach is getting too crowded these days."
  • "Ground control to Major Tom."
  • "Snowbirding in style."
  • "The selfie stick may be the Earthling's finest achievement."
