Kevin went and posted the Weekend Caption Contest™ picture just before he left for vacation, leaving me holding the bag to pick the winners. Gee, thanks heaps, chief.
Anyway, that’s between me and The Big Kahuna. He asked me to do it, and since it’s his name on the paperwork around here, I probably should.
Anyway, without further ado, here are the winners, as picked by me:
First Place: Jeff Blogworthy, “You would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime — Pol Pot or others — that had no concern for human beings.”
Second Place: Jihad Jimmy, Chief Defender of the Faith: “If it’s too loud, you’re too old.”
Third Place: Weegie, “I, ‘m a simple person, you know
I have very small desires in life
Titties ‘n beer, you know…
Yeah, tell it, Frank!”
I just noticed that none of the winners actually “wrote” their own captions, just applied other people’s words. I better make up for that in the extended section.
The “Bash A Blogger” Prize goes to bullwinkle, for “Pennywit makes his argument for the nanny state, again, and again….”, narrowly edging out Aaron’s cc: and “Venomous Kate before coming up with the Fang Fund idea.” It was close, but bullwinkle scored bonus points for going after one of Wizbang’s guest bloggers, while Aaron lost points for misspelling “venomous.”
The “Let’s Kick Around Air America” prize goes to Robert, who offered up “Air America rolls out its “payback in kind” plan to reimburse the boys and girls of the Bronx.” Robert narrowly beat out gxbacher’s “SURGEON GENERAL’S WARNING: excessive exposure to Air America can cause hair loss, tooth loss, skin rash and cranial shrinkage” and Laurence Simon’s “Air America doubles its audience.”
And finally, the coveted “Laurence Simon Sick And Twisted Bastard” award goes to Big E, for “Franklin Schools, 18 months, enjoys one of the myriad fringe benefits of his new status as Michael Jackson’s boyfriend as he listens to a track from Michael’s upcoming new children’s album “Bedtime with Jacko”.
I don’t know who will be running next week’s contest, but it’s one of our most popular features and it’s the primary reason I got this gig here, so it WILL be here.
