Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ was another smashing success. There were way too many excellent captions to honor, so go read the rest of the entries. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Here are the winning entries:

2) (fustian24) – “When polled, 65% of likely voters find the stiff cardboard an improvement over the current incumbent.

3) (Justrand) – “Just as TOTUS was about to give a speech, a man ran up and stood behind it. The man was later identified as “Barack Hussein Obama”. He is being held on the charge of ‘Impersonating the President’.

4) (Rodney Dill) – “‘I can fix that,’ said Joe Biden as he added the smiley face.

5) (UOG) – “‘I serve as a blank screen, on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.’ – Obama, ‘The Audacity of Hope’

6) (sarahconnor2) – “Never try to teleport Obama and the StayPuft marshmallow man at the same time.

The Readers Choice Award this week goes to:

(retired.military) – “One of these things is a blank slate, says only what it is told to say, relies totally on the presidental advisors for its input and the other is a teleprompter.
