Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ gives us a chance to say goodbye to an old Caption Contest friend. One day when the Chuck Norris fad has run its course the world will rediscover the Rumsfeld fighting techniques. Until then we’ll just have to make do with these farewell captions. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:
