And the winner of #captionthatlumia is…

Last Friday one of my Twitter followers, @Nok4US, posted this picture and asked Twitter to caption it:


I retweeted and almost instantly started getting some really funny responses, so I turned it into a spontaneous contest; send me your best caption for the picture with the hashtag #captionthatlumia, and one lucky winner will get a brand new Lumia 900 in the color of their choice.

I got a whopping 1,499 responses. They included lots of tributes to Outkast (so fresh & so clean!) and few parodies of #smokedbywindowsphone (#soapedbywindowsphone?) and some tweets channeling Dos Equis’ “Most Interesting Man in the World” (I don’t always bathe, but when I do, it’s with a Lumia 900).

But amidst all of them, my crack team of judges – you know, the people in my hallway here in Studio G – and I picked this one by @dnanian as the winner:

It took a heck of a lot of scrubbing, but I finally got all the cyan out.

I was also partial to this punny tweet by @donjuan914:

The perfect Finnish

And this satirical Haiku by @Sohraab:

Lumia so lean

Makes bar of soap look unclean

Lumia haiku

As our first and second runners-up, you’re both getting an awesome Windows Phone swag pack!

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest and to @Nok4US for inspiring the whole thing.  I had a blast reading the captions and I can assure you that we’ll DEFINITELY do something like this again!
