    I saw this posted in another thread and couldn't stop laughing.

    Man Jumping Out of Window.gif

    So I decided to have a contest.
    Whoever comes up with the best UO related caption for this picture wins 10 million gold on Atlantic!

    Examples:

    When UO releases a new patch/publish...
    Man Jumping Out of Window.gif
    You'd best go get some fresh air!




    Imagine my window is the new UO patch...
    Man Jumping Out of Window.gif



    UO before the patch...
    Man Jumping Out of Window Before.gif
    UO after the patch...
    Man Jumping Out of Window After.gif

    It doesn't have to be about a publish or a patch...be creative!

    Whichever post gets the most likes, replies to, and comments about wins.

    Contest Ends July 3rd 11:59pm EST.

    LOL!!! :) Love it!
    Very good submission! I remember that Account Migration fiasco...what the heck were they thinking??? Even to this day it's still a pain in the butt to figure the account stuff out.
    +2 points for you! You're in the lead! :p

    Wow lots of submissions! Thanks guys! :) Very funny stuff! :)

    Hehehe :) Not really UO related but still funny :)

    Hahaha! :D I'm sure there will be quite a few people doing that if they ever shut the servers down!

    Oooh boy! I don't even want to imagine the smell that would create! LOL :) Poor tamers! :p

    Oh my gosh that's a good one! I like it! :) Hehe :) Very smart and creative!

    Oh no! I'd jump out a window too! That sounds scary! You don't ever wanna make Mesanna angry! Hehe :p

    Keep em' coming everyone and please comment on the ones you like!
    You guys are very entertaining! :)

    I don't know why I love that picture so much...it's just so funny!

    I love it so much I created a new smiley gif for the forums!

    ... And that's what EA does to good UO Devs.

    [Note] Not actively playing at the moment, so even if I won, wouldn't need the prize. Just in it for the LULZ.

    At first I laughed...but then I realized it was so true :( Too true :sad3: *sigh* It's probably one of the reasons your not playing anymore. Man this is depressing. EA needs to stop firing the good devs! We need them! We want them! I think the picture actually represents how they are treated. In one window and out the other :frown2:
    Well if you did win and ever did happen to come back the prize would still be yours :) Unless of course I'm dead.
    Not UO related...Unless I am missing something.
    Thank you! :)
    LOL Smiley.gif
    Also Kyronix's future according to the previous post :(
    I'm bored so I created a smiley of Kyronix's profile picture.
    It's a little blurry.
    Kyronix Smiley.gif
    What is it? Why does it have no eyes? Why is it's tongue out? Is it taunting us? Do I need to create a new thread about this? How am I going to sleep tonight?

    Zog's joke broken down, you'll probably find it more amusing as it's one of those puns that you have to know the backstory and a little world history.

    The defenestration of Plague.

    A. defenestration: literally, Throwing someone out of a high story window, usually as a means of execution. "The (second) Defenestration of PRAGUE" is the most famous (and defining) use of the term (though there was one incident over a century earlier, and many after), bringing on the Thirty Years War, where the conflict was centered on the battle between Catholic and Protestant nations. Several Catholic authorities (Regents and their secretary) were tossed out of 70 foot high window in an attempt to execute them. The survival of those tossed was attributed to a miracle (by the catholics) or the fact that there was a huge pile of horse manure below the window to break their fall (the protestants).

    B. Plague: The character name used by the bots of one of the illegal vendor search web sites. Can be seen on EVERY shard, circling the Luna shops, most times of the day. Many of us wish we could defenestrate Plague in RL, or just plain off our shard.

    If your referencing the past...then LOL! :)
    If your referencing the present...It's about time!
    If your referencing new stupid changes such as requiring an origin account or something then I'm out of here! Heck do I already have an Origin account? Or was that my Mythic account? Or was that my EA Account? What about my UO account? Do I have a master account? What is going on? How do I access my account do I go to EA or Mythic or Origin? How am I even paying for this game??? Hah! I should have another contest seeing who can explain how to get started to their friend. :p It's not even listed at EA.com under Online Games. Ahhhh! *jumps out a window* [​IMG]

    Thank you for explaining the joke Basara! :) I knew I was missing something! :mf_prop:
    It's very funny now that I understand :)
    Now I can go back and give it a thumbs up!
    I am all for the defenestration of Plague!
    Bring on the new global vendor search! Wooooo!

    BTW...
    If Kyronix ever does get fired...

    I'm surprised nobody has made a caption yet regarding what just happened with the king's collection codes! Guess everyone is still too upset to make jokes. What a disaster.

    Whether this reaction is elated or mortified is in the eye of the beholder.

    Loooool! :) Jumping out a window is quicker and less painful :)

    Doh! Should of used the fire escape...Hahaha! :devil:

    Hey atleast they weren't ettins ;)

    Hehehe awesome! :)

    Daaang aren't you gonna test it on Origin first??? And hey I thought this stuff was already fixed! Guess they must of automatically charged my creditcard! :D

    I thought the entrace was a hole in the ground? This must be the back entrance? :smile2:

    This is my favorite! LOL! :)

    Frusterating :( I understand.

    Oh my my why would you live on a server line? That would be constant rubberband bouncing backpack closing everything reloading all names flying around crazyness! Ahhhh!

    Silly! Why would anyone regret 15 years of playing UO? He probably just wanted to play Pre-AOS again!

    o_O

    Hehe lil excited there eh buddy? :) Good luck against the scripters!
    Scripters??? Scripters??? [​IMG]

    Funny :) Would be better though if it was a gif of a guy jumping into a pond :p I so wanna animate a smiley for this!

    Do you guys like my smiley animations? Can anyone else here create them? Would anyone like to see a 10 million gold smiley animation contest for whoever can create the funniest UO related smiley gif? Or maybe it should be any type of UO related animated gif? Or maybe those take up too many kbs for the forums? :confused2: I can't even create anymore UO gifs because those programs I used to use don't work anymore and I don't know how to access the art files :( So maybe this is a bad idea...wouldn't be fun if we can't use the art files! Booooo!

    I want to thank everyone who participated! :grouphug:

    Note: The number of votes does not necessarily reflect how funny or popular the caption was. I think we have a lot of people who just sit back and go "Meh, what does my vote matter?" or are simply too lazy to log in :) Or perhaps didn't feel they had any incentive to cast a vote. Or actually they probably don't care. Plus some submissions were late and didn't have enough time to garner votes. What I am trying to say is everyone who submitted is awesome! :) Thanks for the laughs! :)
