Whenever a pic of the day is posted you will have roughly twenty-four hours ( unless it’s a Friday then you have the whole weekend) to leave a caption until the next one is posted and a new winner chosen. The caption I think is the most awesome wins an XBLA code! That simple. Enjoy!

CaveBo - “Guys, we’re running out of ideas for ‘Pic of the Day!’ Andrew, put this lizard on your shoulder and lets just take a picture of that. Who’s idea was it to make this a daily thing?!?!

Mike - This picture is gonna be so cheezy. :P

Christina - Coincidentally, my pet lizard is exceptional at doing the Limbo Dance.

Daniel - No guys, this isn’t shameful product placement for Cheez-It and Geico. Can’t a guy just enjoy some cheesy goodness with his pet lizard? Ok, so I lied. It’s actually product placement for LIMBO.

Yraith - Give us a call, and we can save you 15% on your XBLA.

louiedog - Gallant is an excellent party guest who brings a gift for the host and makes sure to say hello to everyone. Goofus brings a single serving snack for himself and sits alone in the corner playing with his lizard.
