So somehow, when nobody was watching, Caption Blog turned two years old. That's two years of culling the daily news for interesting, odd, and lampoon-worthy images. And two years of people -- okay, mostly the same two or three people -- making funny and sarcastic comments about those pictures. And, with rare exception, it hasn't missed a day. This here is my 740th post!

One could argue that Caption Blog is sort of the ugly, redheaded stepchild of the caption world, certainly less popular than its closest cousins, but I prefer to think of it as the Chuck Cunningham of caption sites -- that one you think you visited once, long ago in the dead of night. And maybe you even posted a caption there, or read one you thought was a little funny...but then you heard that the Fonz was out back behind Arnold's, jumping over something on his motorcycle, and that was that.

But still, my thanks to those of you who keep coming back, to post funny comments or just to sit back, read them, and laugh. The site's pretty low-maintenance for me, but it wouldn't be half as much fun if it was just me posting pictures here by my lonesome. Here's to two (or, lord help us) twenty more years!

And while I'm at it...does anyone have any favorite captions that have been posted since 2005? Any that stick out in your mind?
