Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners Oct 21, 2016

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ was quieter than the last few weeks. At the same time Julian Assange lost his internet access. Coincidence? The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Here are the winning entries:

1) (cathymv) – “Whats the difference between a jet engine and Hillary Clinton?

At the end of the flight the jet engine stops whining

2) (RestlessLegs) – “Two planes with excess baggage struggle to get off the ground.

3) (Scorpion) – “Air Force One and Ambulance One going in opposite directions in every sense of the word.

4) (guido81_MA) – “….In the unlikely event of a Trump victory, your seat cushion is stuffed with 500 pre-marked ballots for Hillary Clinton. Gently extract them, follow the lighted aisle to the nearest exit and then get those f*@#ers to the nearest battleground polling station. And once again, thank you for flying the Friendly Lies of Divided.

5) (Mary Gehman) ““…Houston…we have a problem…two problems, actually…”

6) (BetweenTheLines) – “Hillary: “I said I want to do more taxing, not taxi-ing!!”

The Readers Choice Award this week goes to:

(rodney dill) – “Shatner had to be sedated after seeing Hillary on the wing.

Honorable Mention(s):

(Rick Adams) – “Trumped again!


Most Inappropriate But Funny:

(Retired military) – “Hillary’s plane had to make an emergency landing after Bill heard that Madonna was giving oral sex to Hillary voters.

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

    Congrats to this week’s winners! – This is off topic, but I remember spending some time at the Beaverton Airport some years back and remember a young couple who had trouble taking off their Piper Cub with their overweight mother-in-law on the plane. They asked her off the plane, and then were able to take off just fine. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall with that conversation there and after as well…

  • Retired Military’s caption is a winner in my book, even if it did end up in the inappropriate column.

    • Retired military

      Thank you, thank you very much.

    • Rick Adams

      I agree.

  • Thanks All, The Twilight Zone reference got more traction than I thought it would.

    • fustian24

      At least it wasn’t a pun.

    • Jeffrey Ostermiller

      An Oldie but a Goodie… some weren’t born as early as you! 😉

  • cathymv

    Last week, first place…. this week first place…. my funny bone is working overtime!! A personal record for sure!! 🙂 Thank you Sarah!! Congrats to everyone too… I did like the Scorpions Air Force One and Ambulance One… lol… and rodneys had me giggling imagining hillary out on the wing of the plane, cankles showing, cackling madly….

    • fustian24

      Quit hogging the winners slot and leave a little for the rest of us!

      • cathymv

        Honey, I don’t got it often… so when I got it… I got it… and I am letting everyone know I got it… its just a very short time tho… not to worry!! I can only be cool for a bit before karma bitch slaps me back into my geek reality!!

  • Mary Gehman

    Hey, thanks again for choosing one of my captions to be among the winners! It’s one of the few areas in my life where I get to feel like a ‘winner’! Thanks again, and congrats to all (especially cathymv!) for such great captions, this week and every week!! God Bless!

  • fustian24

    There’s been some mistake…

    There isn’t a single fustian caption in the winner’s list.

    I don’t…I don’t…UNDERSTAND!!! What’s happening?

    Isn’t this Monday?

    • fustian24

      Sarah: You must have missed my caption:

      Two planes with excess baggage have trouble getting off the ground, particularly Ambulance One, because it was stuffed with 500 pre-marked ballots for Hillary Clinton flying the Divided skies, when the pilot confused more taxing with more taxiing, so damn you Wright brothers, said Hillary as she was Trumped again. After Bill heard that Madonna was giving oral sex to Hillary voters, they, of course, sedated Shatner, but when the jet engines stopped, Hillary was still whining: “Houston, we have a problem!”

      I was robbed. It’s not FAIIIIRRRRR!!!!

      • Mary Gehman

        Stop whining in harmony with Hillary! (grin!)

        • fustian24

          Sorry, didn’t realize the jet engines had stopped.

          • Mary Gehman

            I, too, am sorry! I just realized that I’m as guilty as you…I am whining about your whining!

          • fustian24

            That’s meta-whining and it’s impressive.

            I just can’t believe everybody ripped me off like that this week. What’s this world coming to?

            This used to be a safe place for creepy, sarcastic, snotballs.

          • Mary Gehman

            Rest assured, the Wiz Bang Caption Contest is still a safe haven for our kind. If you listen to me whine once in a while, I’ll listen to you whine once in a while…fair is fair…and us creepy, sarcastic snotballs have to stick together like all snotballs do!

          • Never meta-whiner I liked

          • fustian24


            Isn’t enough I was used tragically this week?

            Now I have to be punned at?!

      • Paul Hooson

        Maybe Donald Trump is correct, and the caption contest is rigged?

      • Deplorable sarahconnor2

        Hey, 16 more captions and we would have had double winners. You just didn’t want it bad enough!

  • Retired military

    Woot. Got an inappropriate win. Sweeter than candy.

    • fustian24

      The shame.

    • Jeffrey Ostermiller

      The “sweet taste” of victory? (gaaaak!) 😉

  • Joe_Miller

    Sarah, it’s obvious that you take humor seriously. Thanks.

  • Scorpion

    Thank you. Two recent nominations from the pros is humbling. Great humor to start the weekend.
