The Videogum Why Don’t YOU Caption It? Contest: Uggie Hanging Out With Oscar The Grouch

Oh, Uggie. I know that I am late to this one, but I did see The Artist last Saturday because I wanted to have a real reason to get excited when that movie beat out Hugo for Best Costume Design at the Academy Awards, and I know that everyone already knows this, but UGGIE! That guy. Very good actor. He should have stolen Andy Serkis’s Oscar campaign slogan because The Time Is Now to give Uggie all the awards. Such a celeb. A lot of couples play a game where they keep a short list of famous people that if somehow they were magically given the opportunity to “be with” (euphemism) it would be considered acceptable to cheat, and I’m not saying Uggie would be on my list because that’s illegal and kind of disgusting, but I am saying that he would be a joke entry on my list because hahahah UGGIEEEEEE! (See also: Hall Pass 2.) In any case, here is a photo of Uggie hanging out with Oscar the Grouch, obviously. No duh. Best friends. “You live in a trash can and I eat my own poop. Let’s go to the Oscars together.” It just makes sense. Unlike your caption. What are you even talking about? (Just kidding, great caption. YOU are the real star, I’m sure.)

Winner will receive special mention in this week’s Monsters’ Ball. So cheer up, grouches!
