Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple was a play-turned-movie-turned-television-show about two divorced men, down on their luck with nothing in common but their recently broken hearts. The slovenly sports reporter, Oscar Madison, and the neatnik photographer, Felix Unger, came together to cohabitate in New York City with the play, movie and television series all providing us with countless laughs over the years.

Either way, in honor of another one of Hollywood’s oddest encounters, I thought I’d host a caption contest. Enter your most creative comments below. The winner of this week’s caption contest will receive some postcards from the edge, the chance to get rich or die tryin’ and of course, fifty cents.
