Boo! Create a caption and win a Google Voice invite

Someone at Google has a sense of humor and dressed the large Android up like a pirate for Halloween. I was having a hard time coming up with a title for this post, so I thought our readers could help us out. Create a caption for the following photo and I will pick 3 winners who each get a Google Voice invite.

Bookmark this page because I will announce the winners here in 24 hours.

Shiver me timbers.

Shiver me timbers.

In case you missed them, check out our scary Halloween Android wallpapers.

        Hey Adam, it seems androidandme.com doesn’t want them. Just post your email adress and I’ll send you one. If anyone else displays their email adress before the end of sunday, then the first three will get an invite too. (mind you, it takes a few days before the invites are approved by google so don’t think I scammed you if you diddnt get it instantly).

      Personally I just like caption contests like this, reward doesn’t make a difference it’s all good fun.
      I am a bit curious what captions were considered the winners.

      • davidjspooner

        caption contests are fun…

  • Trevor Redhead

    I would have liked to have seen the list of winners too! It makes it more interesting.

    PS…I got an invite, so I was one of the winners…Thanks Taylor.
