Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ was definitely one of the geekier episodes of the contest. It was like the quiz section from “Beauty and the Geek,” which coincidentally was playing all day on MTV today, but I digress… The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Michael Dell, chairman and CEO of Dell Inc., poses during a ceremony where he donated a collection of materials relating to the company's history to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, in Washington May 9, 2007. The items donated include a 1985 PC Limited computer (R) and a Dell OptiPlex GX520 built in 2005 at their newest manufacturing facility in the United States. (Molly Riley/Reuters)
