your friday caption contest: meet eddie murphy’s gigantic oversized novelty head

by

I know these are tough times. The revelation of the Verne Troyer sex tape has shocked us all. Not quite as much as it has intrigued us all vis-à-vis the “mechanics” of it all and whether you can hear Mike Myers in the background making tiny-penis jokes, but still – we’re all pretty shocked.

And yet duty calls.

The premise of the new Eddie Murphy movie is that Eddie Murphy is some kind of alien robot spaceship thingy, inside which is a much tinier Eddie Murphy, who is controlling the alien robot spaceship Eddie Murphy. I’m not sure if you know this but the film is inspired by a true story – living inside the real Eddie Murphy for the past 30 years has been a big huge jerk.

Anyhoo, to promote the movie – which is called Meet Dave – the studio has sent Eddie Muphy’s Gigantic Oversized Novelty Head on a cross-county tour, which will culminate in a three-day stint in Times Square over the July 4 holiday. At the same time, Eddie Murphy’s Gigantic Oversized Nether Regions are currently in the San Fernando Valley, shooting a three-way with Jenna Jameson and the robot from Short Circuit.

Your mission – should you a) choose to accept it, and b) not be too upset that I had the gall to steal the obvious Where’s His Huge Wang? joke – is to write a caption for this photograph in the comments section below. For the record, the woman in the picture is actress Gabrielle Union, who is not Eddie Murphy and therefore of no consequence whatsoever to Eddie Murphy.

The winner of this week’s caption contest receives the now traditional gift of Something From My House. Last week it was two DVDs (they’re coming, Shannon – honest). The week before that it was, if memory serves, my plumber.
