Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ was another monster hit, with over 175 entries. An interesting tidbit about this week’s picture is that it really wasn’t the one I wanted to use. The picture I wanted was one that ran on the front page of The Washington Times that shows Gore and Tipper laughing during his testimony. If someone can find that and e-mail it (or a link) to me we’ll run another Gore contest with it. Anyway, on to the winners… The Goracle has so much history, which a read through the entries is sure to remind you of if you’ve forgotten, all I could do is go with what made me laugh, and in the case of the winning entry shoot soda out of my mouth… The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

With boxes full of petitions, former Vice President Al Gore accompanied by his wife Tipper, arrive at a hearing room on Capitol Hill in Washington to testify on climate change before a joint hearing of the House Energy and Commerce, and Science and Technology subcommittees on Wednesday, March 21, 2007. Gore's return to Congress marked the first time he had been in the Capitol since January 2001 when he was the defeated Democratic nominee still presiding over the Senate in his role as vice president.
