Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This weeks Weekend Caption Contest™ featured a return of the penguins (as noted by Rodney Dill), and many fine and worthy entries. Alas I must pick but a few for accolades (or brickbats to the judge); so without further delay here are the winning entries for this picture:

A half dozen Magellanic penguin chicks waddle through the San Francisco Zoo while making their way to Penguin Island where they joined 40 adult penguins in San Francisco, Friday, Aug. 23, 2002. An outbreak of chlamydia at the San Francisco Zoo has left a dozen penguins dead, according to a spokesman. The bacteria, which was most likely transmitted to the birds by an infected seagull, is spread through airborne saliva or other bodily fluids, said Bob Jenkins, the zoo's director of animal care and conservation. A similar disease is sexually transmitted in humans. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg, File)

1) (jeremy in NYC) – “No war for ice! No war for ice! No war for…….waitaminute – what are we SAYING? Yes war for ice!

2) (Eric) – “While dangerous and some say fool-hardy, residents of San Francisco participate in the annual running of the penguins.

3) (McGehee) – “[sigh] It brings back memories of the olden days when rough-and-ready Americans would drive their penguin herds to market, braving storms, rustlers and marauding Indians.

“Good Point.”

6) (Darleen) – “Joining the weekly San Francisco anti-war march and Vegan Recipe Exchange, the newest inter-species members get a warm welcome from the marchers as their new chant gains popularity ‘Bush Lied, Penguins Died

“Special” Mention – For a penguin anatomy lesson…

(Sean Gleeson) – As they marched, the moonbat penguins chanted and sang:
“We’re here, we’re Spheniscidae, get used to it!”
“What do we want?” “Krill!” “When do we want it?” “Now!”
“Boycott Batman!”
“Cloacal sex is a right!”
“Keep your rosaries off my uropygial gland!”

Until next Friday…
