Too Many iPads? [Caption Contest]


Your Caption Here?
All I really wanted were the Apple stickers --munpip214

Congrats, commenter munpip214! You’ve won the contest! Enjoy your newfound fame!

So, this image is fairly clear, right? A ton of iPads, all charging with some charging ephemera in the background, none of them out of the plastic wrap that iPads come in. The poster on G+, Google’s social network, is Cameron Brower. What he does is anyone’s guess, but we found this image to be rather sublime, and just crying out for a clever caption. His comment on it? “I hope I never see an iPad again.” Now, it’s your turn.

Cult of Mac readers are some of the funniest captioneers ever, so we’d like to give you a chance to express yourself, and maybe get a little bit of Cult fame as well. Our crack editorial team will look at the submissions over the weekend and then…wait for it…actually put the winning caption under the picture above. Stunning, no?

Seriously, though, it’s all in fun and we wish you all the luck. Now, get captioning! You can enter as many captions as you like; just don’t create some weird script in Automator that spams the comments. Forget I even said that, ok?

Get on it, folks. We can’t wait to see the funny.

Thanks Cameron!

    First “ephemera” is the wrong word.  

    Second, this isn’t actually very many iPads.
    We deploy 30 at a time on carts for classroom use.  
    This looks like only a single cart full.
