For those unaware of this increasingly cherished, muy divertido feature here at Detroit Bad Boys, In the memetime is where we select an image and invite you to come up with the funniest caption for the image, with the winner being selected by the tried-and-true method of counting recs. In an unexpected turn of events in our last edition our early rules were called into question: was it fair to pit one lone DBB wolf against the sheer brainpower of the entirety of the rest of DBB, staffers and readers alike? So we turned inward, reflected and realized that it is the readers that matter most, so we threw caution to the wind and we decided to make it a cage match style free-for-all, where DBB Staff and readers alike pit themselves against one another and only one (maybe two) can survive. Before we present you, dear readers, with your latest challenge, we will show you the winner and runner-up from round 2 in meme form:
