Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ was another monster, smash hit. With nearly 200 entries picking seven captions to honor is mostly a futile exercise, but I’m all about the futility. Given all the captions not honored you really should go check out all of the entries. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

President Barack Obama looks at a map donated to the White House by the National Geographic Society, in the Oval Office, June 10, 2009. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)

Here are the winning entries:

1) (Jim Treacher) – “I can see Russia from my crouch!

2) (Neoluddite) – “Barack Obama prefers vintage maps. He enjoys the beauty, craftsmanship, and there is no state of Israel.

3) (Al Pennam) – “Been there…
Been there…
Born there…
Been there…

4) (Maggie Mama) – “Uhm, Michelle wanted to go where for dinner?

5) (Brent T) – “Ego is to scale.

6) (fustian) – “Occasionally Obama likes to take a dump on the Great Seal, just like he has on the country.

The Readers Choice Award this week goes to:

(Dodo David) – “President Obama tries to decide which nation to send his wife and daughters to for medical help in the event that Obamacare becomes a reality.

And finally, since the President does have two small daughters there’s a very good chance he might have a copy of They Might Be Giant’s “Here Come The ABC’s.” Given the hours I’ve logged with that DVD, this following caption really appealed to me…

(Dodo David) – “Hmmm. I can’t find West Xylophone anywhere…

If you’re still confused, this video might clear things up…

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