Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ went surprisingly well. The photo is courtesy of Jay Tea, who swore up and down that the picture he was getting on the way home from work would be just perfect for a caption contest. Turns out he was right… The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Good news: Burger King is hiring.  Bad news: Hey, what happened to the Burger King?

Here are the winning entries:

1) (Brian Wohlgemuth) – “The fringe militia of the Chick-Fil-A cow army scores their first decisive victory.

2) (Rodney Dill) – “Don’t raze me bro’

3) (matthew) – “I noe can haz cheezeburgah?

4) (infidel) – “Undersize me.

5) (radio free fred) – “Burger King > For The People That Dig Fast Food.

6) (retired military) – “Hillary Clinton meeting voters at a Burger King told them that ‘God would send me a sign if he wants me to get out of the race.’

The Readers Choice Award this week went to Brian’s winning entry. In its place I honor the guido’s rework of the infamous Ding, Fries Are Done holiday greeting:

(guido) – “Ding! Dirt is done
Ding! Dirt is done
I gotta run, I gotta run
I work at Burger King, make flame broiled mudpies
I wear paper hats
Would you like a pick and spade with that?
Would you like a pick and spade with that?

That’s all for this weekend. A new edition of the Wizbang Weekend Caption Contest™ will debut Friday morning.

  • Thanks for 5th……”Let Freedom Ring.”

  • Thanks for the second.

    It was good to see the negative voting mostly missing from this contest. Guess even trolls gotta go on vacation sometimes.

  • infidel

    Win or lose it’s always fun to start Friday’s off with the caption contest. It’s good to laugh.

  • matthew

    Third place! Bronze medal for troll. HA.

  • I’m glad my photo was such a hit. Personally, I was pulling for fustian’s “It was a pretty nasty divorce and Burger Queen seems to have gotten the house,” but I can’t quibble with the winners.

    Oh, and matthew/hahaha/rice/asterisk/Neil Bush/wtf?/hyperbolist/reader/narf… settle down to one identity and stick with it. And NOT the name of a real person. I almost lowered the boom on you last week, but your caption entry bought you one last chance.


  • hyperbolist

    Actually, whichever names are associated with this IP (picknitter?) are also mine, and I must have used a few others when I lived in Korea last year. I know it’s super-douchey to sock-puppet, but sometimes I prefer not getting into extended conversations, in favour of just pointing out the stupidity of one thing. But I understand the reasons for that being unfair, especially insofar as the people I criticize are willing to own their words by putting their “names” on them. It’s not like I thought I was getting away with it, though–I guess I wanted to see if, when, and how you would react. (I’m a very annoying, antagonistic person when I’m bored.)

  • IP duly noted. Now you’ve used up your first and last warning. Olaf’s Troll Hammer stands ready.
