Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners August 19, 2016

The August 19 Weekend Caption Contest™ was a laugh riot, at least for the two people pictured. When you see those two laughing that hard at something…it should make you very afraid.

Here are the winning entries:

1) (guido81_MA) – “She even sits crooked.

4) (Retired military) – “Hillary “I heard you going to Louisiana next week”
Obama “Yeah, they said that the golf course would be dried out by then”

(johntree) – ““An internet video? Where the hell did you pull that out from?”

5) (Rick Adams) – “They giggle like loons over her new secret service code name, but actually — other than knowing it sounds vaguely French — they have NO IDEA what “petit mal” is referencing.

(Ken in Camarillo) – “..and then he said (ho ho ho ha) no reasonable prosecutor (hee hee howee) would file charges (ho ho hawww!)

6) (cathymv) – “Hillary is doing her Terrence and Phillip impression!!

Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners August 26, 2016
  • Paul Hooson

    Wow, when did Rodney make his entry? With so entries I”m not sure who came first here. – But, thank you for the recognition for my inappropriate laugh here.

    BTW, this is off topic here, but an outspoken old lady, much like that Clara Peller “where’s the beef lady”. came down to work the other day making one inappropriate and derogatory comment after another, which only made me cringe in horror.. But, then on the way out the door she remarks. “Help doesn’t last long here”, and leaves, which left me laughing. I had to hand it to her, her sense of timing was excellent. She makes her strongest punchline, then leaves the stage, leaving the audience with a lasting impression. A true master of her craft.

    • Yours was first. It was the first thing that popped into my head. I”m in Canada now, back from England and Wales. I’ll be back home later today.

      • Paul Hooson

        Wow. That’s a great vacation. Better than me right now. At 61 I’m working two jobs because my commercial renters only paid me rent twice in the last 22 months, costing me 10’s of thousands in legal bills.

        • fustian24

          I think Rodney should be punished for plagiarizing YOUR caption.

          Who does he think he is, Brian Williams? Joe Biden?

          • yetanotherjohn

            I thought that was their stage name. Though I could never figure out which was Shits and which was Giggles.

      • fustian24

        Working on Brexit?

        • Taking advantage of the cheap Pound, though the trip was already planned by then.

          • Paul Hooson

            Then you can go to France where they have francs and then back to the U.S. where Native Americans once used beans as currency. You can have beans and francs…

          • fustian24

            They do speak pretty good American there.

          • They can’t drive worth a damn though, with the steering wheel on the wrong side.

          • fustian24

            It should be illegal to enter a roundabout until you’ve gotten over jet lag…

          • We’ve got plenty of roundabouts here in Michigan, they just go the right way. 😉

            I didn’t try to drive, my friends from Wales did the driving when necessary.

          • fustian24

            I like it when they break out in Walesong. It’s eerie and high-pitched and it really travels long distances underwater.

  • Mary Gehman

    Thanks for 3rd! Always appreciate being appreciated! If Hillary is in the picture, it’s pretty easy to come up with a funny cankle comment! Thanks again, and congrats to all who won, placed and/or showed, etc.!

    • fustian24

      Well, it wasn’t THAT easy or everybody would have done it.

      • yetanotherjohn

        Mary makes it look easy with her usual style and grace.
        (Now she’s going to stay up all night trying to figure out some hidden meaning or joke).

        • Mary Gehman

          I know there’s a punchline coming…I just know it! But, thanks for the “style and grace” comment, none the less! 🙂

          • yetanotherjohn

            It’s much more fun making you wonder.

          • Mary Gehman


          • yetanotherjohn

            Yes. Yes I am. My kindness is killing you. Bwaahhahahaha

          • Mary Gehman

            If I must be killed, I’m glad it’s with kindness. Could you make it quick and painless, too? And, if possible, kill me before I have to go to work tomorrow? My day tomorrow is booked solid from about 9am to at least 7:30pm and I don’t think I’ll survive it anyway. But, should I persevere, I’ll be away for 5 days starting Thursday! But, I likely won’t have internet access, so no caption contest for me this Friday! (Just giving y’all a ‘head’s up’ so you can have a better chance at winning without me competing against ya’!) 🙂

      • Mary Gehman

        That’s true…it does require some finesse and artistry, a bizarre sense of humor, and a stunning command of the English language…but, for me, they just pop in my head at the most “inappropriate” times, then I have to get to a laptop somewhere and type them in before I forget them! But, YOU…you are an artist! 🙂

        • fustian24

          As Disraeli put it speaking of Gladstone, I am often “inebriated in the exuberance of my own verbosity”.

          • Mary Gehman

            Translation: “Full of hot air with some big words thrown in for good measure.” (And, you thought I was going to say “Drunken fool who ate a thesaurus and threw up a dictionary”!!!) 🙂
            PS – Were you a librarian in a past life?!?! 🙂

          • fustian24


  • Retired military

    Thanks all.

    • yetanotherjohn

      Your welcome, though I really had nothing to do with 4th place.

  • fustian24

    That “blown a cankle” caption cracks me up.

    The rest were crap…

    • yetanotherjohn

      Spoken like a true connoisseur of crap.

      • fustian24

        Inappropriate is for the captions.

        Whining is for the judging.

        • yetanotherjohn

          Like you who has never won Inappropriate knows about inappropriate. I’ve won Inappropriate, Mary has won inappropriate. Rodney, Paul and Vagabond have all won Inappropriate. JLawson has won inappropriate. Fustian, not so much.
          p.s. Didn’t you get the memo that the whining award was nixed as sexist.

          • fustian24

            I did NOT get that memo.

            And I don’t do inappropriate you lard-&*^%#, piece of @#*&$#@!


          • yetanotherjohn

            I think we should put a giant scarlet A on your chest for being Appropriate.

  • yetanotherjohn

    I don’t get reader’s choice very often (if ever), so thanks to all. Especially because that was a late in the day entry.

    • fustian24

      There’s a reason for that.

      Most of your stuff is crrrrrraaaaap! (spoken with a heavy Scottish accent)

      • yetanotherjohn

        All unfortunately to true. But quantity has a quality all it’s own.

  • cathymv

    Cankles are a winner every time!!!

    Thanks for the 6th place… thought that it might be too obscure.. but, there are others that obviously watch south park too!!
