This weeks Weekend Caption Contest™ got a ton of entries, and judging the top entries was tough. The winning captions for this picture:
1) (Wind Rider) – “WASHINGTON (AP) – Spokespersons from various baby groups across the nation expressed outrage and disappointment at the latest Bush campaign tactic, igniting yet another controversy sure to weigh down the President
“How dare he pick up a baby and politicize childhood for his own partisan gains?” Asked Diaper Brigade member Danny “The Drooler” Phillips. “This is simply outrageous. I want my mooooooooommy!”
White House spokeswoman Karen Hughes dismissed the controversy as being manufactured by the media and hard core supporters of the Kerry campaign, specifically his position on “just one more piece of candy”.
“This is ridiculous” said Hughes, “promising these kids lollipops to get them to denounce a long time political tradition – photo ops with babies.”
The Kerry campaign denied promising anyone any lollipops, but said they intended to pay for lollipop budgetary line items through voluntary tax givebacks from the wealthiest 1% of Americans.”
2) (Jay Tea) – “A cunningly disguised Osama Bin Laden looks on gleefully as President George W. Bush unwittingly picks up the world’s smallest suicide bomber, code-named “Baby Boom.” However, in the excitement over completing her mission, “Baby Boom” lost control of her bodily functions and shorted out the detonator. The President escaped, never knowing just how closely death had passed him by.“
3) (Greg Bouchillon) – “Get in mah belly“
Update: Fritz has a retro caption contest winner in his Friday contest featuring Ricky and Lucy.
