  • fustian24

    What a panoply of excellent captions!

    • yetanotherjohn

      Fustian, you failed to win the prestigious “Most inappropriate” award this week, but I know you will try harder next week.
      btw, did you know panoply was derived from the Greek for ‘full armor’? “What a full armor of excellent captions.”

      • fustian24

        Seems appropriate.

        • sarahconnor2 MAGA

          You better be praying the Redskins win tomorrow, Mr.-Lifetime-Inappropriate-Awards-If-They-Lose.

          • yetanotherjohn

            You do know you are setting up incentives for shenanigans to see the Redskins lose that will make deflategate look like an offside penalty.

          • fustian24

            Quick. Somebody alert NFL security!

            Yetanotherjohn is going to go full Tonya Harding on the Redskins, as part of his cunning plan to win lifetime Inappropriate honors.

            Be very afraid!

          • yetanotherjohn

            Please don’t throw me in that brier patch.

          • fustian24

            All I can do is root for the best team in the NFL today.

            Rodney, on the other hand, has a Panther’s shrine in his bathroom.

          • Actually I always like to see Kirk Cousins, former MSU quarterback, do well.

          • Sorry fustian24, Panthers are #NotMyTeam

          • fustian24

            Rodney supports a “plethora” of NFL teams none of which are the Redskins.


            Oh you better watch out,
            You’re Carolina bound
            You’re not gonna win,
            I’m tellin’ you why.
            The Redskin team is coming to town.

          • I think you’ve opened Pandora’s pigskin, and your feeble attempts to project your hatred of the Redskins on others won’t help to re-inflate it.

          • fustian24

            Then how come you’re wearing Panther blue again?

          • I’m wearing Green and Gold

      • Maybe he meant plethora

        • fustian24

          panoply: a wide-ranging and impressive array or display
          plethora: overabundance; excess

          I suffer from a plethora of bad advice on how to characterize the panoply of excellent captions!

          • I find your response to be recherché

          • fustian24

            I not only overflow with learning, I stand in the slop.

          • yetanotherjohn

            and wallow in the inappropriateness.

      • Ken in Camarillo

        Well then.. fustian24 gets extra points for the pun!

  • Paul Hooson

    Thank you for the 2nd “inappropriate, but funny” award, Sarah and everyone. Speaking of drive-ins, when I was 23 I remember a double date with a 18 year old curly haired knockout, and my friend in the backseat with another girl. My date with the 18 year old didn’t turn out as good as the night before in her bedroom, so we mostly just talked and watched the movie, which was rather hard with the soundtrack of sloppy sex going on in the backseat of my 1973 Gremlin with my friend and his date. But, I didn’t give up on drive-ins or bringing girls to them and soldiered on. Drive-ins sure were a lot different experience than watching a movie in a theater. Too bad they’re gone…

    • yetanotherjohn

      Congratulations on winning the prestigious “Most inappropriate” award.

    • sarahconnor2 MAGA

      Thanks, Paul! I loved your inappropriate one!

    • yetanotherjohn

      So you’re saying the couple in the back seat were going at it like a house on fire?

  • yetanotherjohn

    Such a simple picture, so many great captions it inspired. Thanks for the gold and congratulations to all. We had parody, puns, political, quotes out of context, everyday sayings. It was great.

  • Thanks Sarah!


  • Oh you better watch out,
    You’re liking Sci-Fi
    Not gonna get laid,
    I’m tellin’ you why.
    Comic-Con is coming to town.

    • yetanotherjohn

      Personal experience is a cruel teacher.

      • Which is why I’ve chosen to learn from the mistakes of others.

    • Ken in Camarillo

      Inappropriate, but funny!

  • cathymv

    Good morning all! Looks like I’m the meat in the John and Fustian sandwich… bwahahahahah…. Thanks for the number one with two great funny men! I am truly humbled to be included with them!!! Lots of really great captions this week…. Thank you sarah!!!

    • fustian24

      Just keep your mitts off my thermoplastic, armored codpiece.

      I’m saving myself for a jedi.

      • yetanotherjohn

        You spelled prince wrong.

        • fustian24

          Projecting again, o inappropriate one?

          • yetanotherjohn

            I’m not the one having sexual fantasies centered on a sci-fi movie series.

          • Mary Gehman

            Yeah…but you are going ‘commando’!

          • yetanotherjohn

            What can I say? I’m living the dream and keeping it real.

    • yetanotherjohn

      Oh baloney.

  • Rick Adams

    Okay, #notmyemperor made me laugh; I hadn’t seen that one.

  • Mary Gehman

    Thanks for the #2 spot! There were so many great captions this weekend, I’m surprised I placed anywhere on the winner’s list! Have a great week everyone and God Bless! I have to put in a load of laundry now before I go to work!

    • yetanotherjohn

      Since your doing laundry, would you mind throwing in a few of my things. All I have left to wear is a storm trooper costume.

      • Mary Gehman

        I draw the line at cleaning codpieces…a girl’s gotta have some standards!

        • yetanotherjohn

          I have my standards … and if you don’t like those I have others.

          • Mary Gehman

            Nice to know your standards are flexible…does that mean that YOU clean codpieces?

          • yetanotherjohn

            Clean them, I don’t even wear them.

          • Mary Gehman

            So your going ‘commando’?

          • yetanotherjohn

            Given that there is a wide range of male ‘small clothes’ other than a codpiece to choose from, I’m not sure why you would jump to that conclusion, but yes.

          • Mary Gehman

            Good for you!!!

  • Brian Brandt

    Thanks for the 3rd. I’m surprised I placed at all with all the great captions.

  • Joe_Miller

    Inappropriate again!

    I’ve found my niche.

    • yetanotherjohn

      Congratulations on winning this prestigious award.

  • Over 400 entries but three winners per place is my max.

    To be fair there probably weren’t over 300 entries anyway…. As has come to be, there were a lot of comments that were bantering back and forth, sidebars, and meta-captions.

    • fustian24

      Puns shouldn’t count either.

      • Humor bigot.

        • fustian24

          Comedy taste leader.

    • yetanotherjohn

      ‘First shalt thou put up the photo. Then, shalt thou count captions to three hundred, no more, no less. Three hundred shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shalt be three hundred. Four hundred shalt thou not count, nor either count thou two hundred, excepting that thou then proceed to three hundred. Five hundred is right out. Once the number three hundred, being the third hundred number, be reached, then postest thou the three funniest captions per award, fustian being naughty in my sight, shall only win most inappropriate if the Redskins loseth.’

  • Scorpion

    Thank you. Great comments, as usual.

  • Sarah: Thanks for acknowledging my humble effort, which was apparently more humble than I first imagined! You did have a lot of good lines to choose from. Merry Christmas!
