Caption This: Bette's queen-sized reaction

If we can possibly tear ourselves away from Tiger, I ask that we turn our collective attention to one Bette Midler, aka the Divine Miss M, who Monday pulled the face you see below upon meeting Queen Elizabeth. We can understand how that might discombobulate one, but what's with the manicure hands pose and why is that man petting her? That's where you come in. Submit your own captions for the photo in the comment section below. The best will be elevated to a position of prominence here in the blog. Photo: Getty Images...

Caption This: When Carey met Holly

Once upon a time, Drew Carey and Holly Madison met on a red carpet in Las Vegas. Okay, so maybe it was Wednesday evening at the grand opening of Wayne Newton's new Vegas show. But what goes on here? Has Madison surprised Carey with a hand buzzer or is he just that appalled by her showgirl-meets-drapery get-up? (AP) You be the judge. Share your best shot at a faux caption for the above pic below. The top five or so will be highlighted here tomorrow. Need a little inspiration? Have a look at the ghosts of Creative Captioning past. This Week's Top Entries: 1. To his horror, Drew Carey realized, too late, that he would actually have to sit through an entire Wayne Newton show. Holly Madison, who has spent a lot of time with a geriatric gasbag who dresses like a pimp, assured him that it would not be...

Creative Captioning: Iman Dances Stands with Wolves

Halloween seems to have come early in New York where the fashion world elite gathered Thursday evening for Fashion Night Out. Below, Mrs. David Bowie -- aka super model doyenne Iman -- seems to have been thrown to the wolves. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come up with a gut-busting caption to accompany the picture. I don't want to pressure anyone, but hilarity better ensue. And ASAP. (Getty Images) The best of the bunch will be elevated to a place of prominence in this here blahg....

Creative Captioning: A Piven Worth a Thousand Words

(Reuters) One group of tennis fans zoomed in on the off-court action at Wednesday's U.S. Open night session, snapping a pic of Mr. Personality, Jeremy Piven (you know, this guy), in the stands. But what's the subtext? Why are those girls so excited about seeing Piven? And why does he look like he just woke from a sushi-induced coma? What goes on here? You tell me. Share your suggested captions -- be they descriptive, dialogue, abstract -- below. The top few will be elevated to a place of prominence here in the blahg. Have at it......

Paris Hilton's New BFF?

It isn't often that we go back to the Creative Captioning well because it simply proved to be a difficult feature to sustain. We're all just so busy, who has time to sit around inventing text to accompany loopy celeb photos? Well, there are pictures and there are pictures and today what we have, my friends, is a picture. Below, please note one Paris Hilton -- socialite, reality TV star, yesterday's news -- who is currently in Dubai filming an insulting (that it's even being made) third iteration of her "My New BFF" show. Here, Hilton -- she's the one on the left -- cuddles up to a camel. A camel who appears none too pleased about the photo op. (AFP/Getty Images)) So, have at it -- hit me with your best captions. The top entries will be showcased here. Remember to keep it clean. No digit references, please....

Creative Captioning: Surprise! It's Jason Segel

If it weren't for white hot James Franco, I would have totally crushed on Jason Segel in the sadly short-lived "Freaks and Geeks" -- he was a little nerdy, but how could you resist a character with so much enthusiasm for Rush's "Spirit of Radio" that he played out his Neil Pert fantasies on a make-shift basement stage? And he's managed to build himself a respectable Hollywood career as an adult -- a member of Judd Apatow's inner circle who wrote and starred in last year's "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" to respectable box office returns, a regular gig on CBS's "How I Met Your Mother." And, if that wasn't enough to ensure his celebrity, he's now rumored to be romancing perennial girlfriend Drew Barrymore. But there's also Jason's creepy side. Like his total comfort with nudity (his man parts made their big screen debut in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall") and the fact...
