Contest: Add your caption to this photo (Olympus camera is prize)

Update 04/05/13: Winners! The contest has ended, and we’ve chosen a winner plus four runner-ups. Thanks to all who contributed captions, and thanks to Olympus for the camera prize. See the completed images with captions below. . .

This caption, by reader “WVMountains,” struck our funny bone with its reference to beginner ski lessons (“French fries” equals straight skis for speed; “Pizza” means angle skis to slow or stop) and its quick, caption-friendly text.

Earlier this month, we launched a caption contest with a climbing theme. This week, Olympus is partnering with GearJunkie for another chance to show off your creative captioning skills as a part of its larger promotion, Road to Whistler Sweepstakes, which will send a winner to the World Ski & Snowboard Festival in Whistler, B.C., next month.

For the caption contest below, the prize is the TG-2 iHS model, a “tough camera” valued at $379. The stout shooter is made for adventurers — waterproof, drop-proof to 7 feet, crush-proof in a backpack — and can capture still images or HD video anywhere outdoors.

The prize: Olympus TG-2 iHS “tough camera”

Hint: For your caption, be fun, humorous, or real, but stay clean and don’t be crude. We’ll pick the winner in mid April with the best, most interesting and/or funny answer to win the camera.

Note: *If you have already “Liked” the GearJunkie on Facebook in the past, you can skip this step above (step #1). Also, you can enter as many captions as you want, just keep the quality high. Be sure to include your email when you submit on the comments form below so we can contact the winner. Good luck!
