  • Paul Hooson

    Hooray! My goofy Germanic double entendre was a success here! Thank you everyone…I am indeed a happy wanderer in my lederhosen today! – Maybe even joke leaderhooson for today at least, thank you…

    • Rick Adams

      I didn’t even spot the double entendre until you pointed it out, then burst out laughing when I finally figured it out.

      • yetanotherjohn

        Ich bin ein Dummkopf. I see the black forest (Germanic to the core) and forest gump (an idiot who glides through history with no concept of what is going on). I get the combination. But I don’t see the double entendre.

        • Rick Adams

          I’m sorry, perhaps “double entendre” is the wrong term. I was referring to the combo of “Black Forest” plus “Forest Gump,” so you are not at all an idiot.

          • yetanotherjohn

            Ach du lieber. Jetz ich verstehen.
            I thought there was a second Germanic joke (like Gump being a type of cake as in Black Forest Cake) or something. I’m not a smart man, but I know what humor is.

    • A brilliant caption Paul

      • Paul Hooson

        Thank you. Praise from the master(you) means a great deal to me. Your humor is always so masterful and clever, my friend.

  • Pretzel__Logic

    Whooo Hooo!

  • Joe_Miller

    Sarah, chalk up another week of you being incredibly astute.

  • yetanotherjohn

    I predict this weeks photo will be will feature Obama posing with past “presidents”.

    • Paul Hooson

      Better than Obama posing as past presidents. Imagine him in Lincoln’s beard or Washington’s hair…

      • yetanotherjohn

        Take a look at althouse’s blog. She has a photo of Obama standing with five other larger than life presidential characters. Very much in the flavor of a caption contest.
        e.g. The smallest head has the biggest ego.
        Obama to George Washington “You didn’t father this country”.
        Lincoln to Obama “What part of ‘a house divided’ don’t you understand?”
