Last Week's Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

    David Robertson quickly won everyone’s hearts with his great entry. But, he liked the entry by “Horatio Lopez”. – Here’s the secret of “Horatio Lopez”. One day I had trouble logging in, so I created a new comedy character “Horatio Lopez” who supposedly is an illegal who crossed the border only to tell jokes here from the angle of being an illegal who speaks in broken English and says funny things. – I have a long history as an impressionist, and love it when i create a new comedy character who tells jokes from that character’s life perspective.

      Your non-existent sock puppet will not receive his non-existent cash prize.

    • fustian24

      I’ve got one of those too.

      Mine’s “Rodney Dill”.

      • Paul Hooson

        Aren’t Rodney Dill and you two different people? Your joke styles are decidedly different? – In my case, the jokes were written in the mindset of the character, allowing for some jokes that worked well from a food workers viewpoint.

        • jim_m

          Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde were one person and yet two different people. I’ll let you decide on the implications in this instance.

          • Paul Hooson

            Rodney Dill’s humor relies on clever word play or variations of familiar terms bent towards humor, while Fustian’s humor is more pointedly partisan political in tone, and sometimes slightly angry in tone. The two styles differ much from the more easy going writing of Rodney Dill whom I would expect to smile a lot and be more outgoing than Fustian, who I view as more reserved and less outgoing, and less easy going. – I have a little less than a PhD in psychology, and my evaluation is that it is two different people. – On the other hand, look at my over the top Horatio Lopez jokes vs. my Paul Hooson jokes. – There’s a much more similar style in both types of jokes to assume that it’s me in both cases. I’m surprised that someone didn’t quick call this one.

          • fustian24

            So, to sum up. Rodney light and clever. Fustian angry, partisan, and not clever.


          • Paul Hooson

            I know you’re being funny. But, Rodney Dill’s humor is decidedly lighter and whenever partisan in a lighter way. Your humor, Fustian, is certainly clever, but decidedly more tough, more harder partisan in tone as one difference. – My humor is often crude and sexual in nature, although I manage to restrain my base instincts sometimes and write something mainstream from time to time that finds broader acceptance. I did ok here because I’m good with food jokes. I’ve had a lifetime joking about food, so some of my food jokes work. – And I scored a narrow rare win on the other because I stumbled into a better than usual Clinton cigar joke only because the Clinton cigar humor became largely acceptable in popular culture and lost much of it’s crudeness. – Normally, sexual cigar humor like that would have been viewed as offensive to obscene in nature, but Clinton sex scandal humor became mainstream, which also proves how what society views as obscene is a moving barrier. Some of the Andrew Dice Clay type humor is no doubt more acceptable than what it once was because the barrier tends to move with time. – As long as I don’t tell my stupid ethnic housefire jokes, you’ll like a joke of mine from time to time, and I always get a laugh from many jokes of yours as well.

            First rule of holes man.

            Just saying.

    • Fustian and I are cut from a different bolt of cloth, so to speak

    • I’ve used the anagram ‘Lindy R. dole’ though sparingly. Both have placed in the same contest at Wizbang, though quite a while ago.

      Both are pseudonyms anyway.

  • Thanks Kevin.
