This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ was popular-over three hundred responses so we have triple winners per place. Nothing like a mix of snow and green beer to bring out the captions. Lots of good ones this week so make sure to read all of them. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

“It’s real.”

(Brian Brandt) – ““Hey, Bannon, you think I can put one through the Times window?”

How To Be A Loser By Betting On A Winner
  • Retired military

    Thanks for cofirst place folks.

    • yetanotherjohn

      Congratulations. I’m surprised Gore hasn’t rented himself out to the ski industry.

  • yetanotherjohn

    Oh what a wonderful feeling, oh what a wonderful day.
    I’ve got a wonderful feeling, everything’s going my way … with a silver.

    Thanks Sarah and congratulations on your reader’s choice.

  • Thank ye kindly for the mention, Sarah!

  • Paul Hooson

    Ah, thank you so much Sarah and everyone for my tied at second place win here. I deeply appreciate it. I love to joke about being a bad joke writer, and managed to tie it to this week’s photo. – As an aside, I sure had Brian laughing at my “New York City snowstorm” shtick of jokes this weekend. I didn’t really expect any of these to capture gold here, but they were fun to write regardless.

    Congrats to you here Sarah. I’m happy to see you not disqualify yourself. When people vote up a joke of yours,it deserves fair consideration for sure.

    Thank you again, and God bless.

    • Brian Brandt

      ” I sure had Brian laughing at my “New York City snowstorm” shtick. . .”

      The Saint Patty’s Day Irish whiskey had a little something to do with my fit of the giggles.

      • yetanotherjohn

        No man, we got the posts. You own it.

      • Paul Hooson

        Drinking makes my jokes easier to tolerate for sure…

    • yetanotherjohn

      You can’t beat your fire and ice (house fires and snow storms) with a shtick.

    • cathymv

      you were killing it!!! 🙂

  • Thanks Sarah, from dill, rodney dill.

    • yetanotherjohn

      Shaken … not stir (crazy)

  • Mary Gehman

    Hey, thanks for 2nd! I was running on empty this week…just couldn’t seem to come up with much for this picture, so I’m surprised I placed anywhere. Congrats, Sarah, on your reader’s choice and congrats to all the winners! God Bless!

    • yetanotherjohn

      So your running on empty beat out all those off the podium plus the bronze, was as good as us silvers and near enough to the golds. That’s what you think? You Lady, posted a fine caption. It was relevant, it had a hint of politics with its nod to fake news meme and it was funny. Don’t give me that mealy mouth “I was running on empty”. Now drop and give me 20 (captions).

      • Mary Gehman

        Thanks for the encouragement and kind words! I’ll do my best to ‘drop and give you 20 captions’ this coming Friday!

    • cathymv

      You rock!!

  • Scorpion

    Thank you. Paul made it difficult to have a beverage while reading the posts without a keyboard protector.

    • yetanotherjohn

      Projectile vomiting will do that to you.

  • Vagabond661

    Wow! 3rd place! Thanks Sarah. There were so many good ones.

  • Joe_Miller


    • yetanotherjohn

      Missed the podium by that much.

  • cathymv

    Ohhh sharing 5th with rock and wild! Sweet. Thanks Sarah! As always – so many good captions!!
