Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

Last weeks Weekend Caption Contest™ had a little bit of everything. Of course, once again I got distracted in judging the contest, but this week I had a good excuse. Wizbang was down pretty much all of Sunday evening. That weekend experience just sucked all the life out of me…

These guys are going to be big!”

3) (Golfer) – “Bill Gates has an intimate moment with his wife.

Honorable Mention

5) (spacemonkey) – “During a demonstration of the latest in the GeekWare line of MS products, Gates is seen ‘accidentally’ setting the VirtualDate to the ‘homerun’ setting.

6) (Teflon93) – “C’mon, dance, Greenspan—DANCE!

Until next Friday later today…

Update: Teflon93 would have won had he changed “Greenspan” to “Ballmer.” The Dance Monkeyboy video is all the explanation you need to see why that would have been a winner.
