Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners Week of August 18, 2017

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ brought some levity into a long week of watching the left go full throttle into their production of “Springtime for Stalin”. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Here are the winning entries:

1) (Retired military) – CNN “President Trump destroyed yet more of Hillary Clinton’s home today”

2) (Vagabond661) – CNN: “Trump only uses WHITE cranes!”

3) (fustian24) – Trump’s putting up a statue of Stonewall Jackson just to mess with ’em.

4) (Rock ThisTown) – Crane the swamp.

5) (karl_lembke) – “De crane! De Crane!”

6) (yetanotherjohn) – The hard part was not lifting the White House or dropping it. The hard part was getting Hillary under the house. Of course the easy part was taking the ruby shoes off her and putting them on Melania.

The Readers Choice Award this week goes to:

(rodney dill) – Sorry Mr. President…. Slaves were used to build the White House, it’s gotta go.

Honorable Mention(s):

(Scorpion) – Trumps welcoming detail awaits the Iranian negotiating team with his version of “The Art of the Deal”.

(Mike) – Tell me again: which one is hoisting Hillary’s petard?

Most Inappropriate But Funny:

(Mary Gehman) – “Let’s get to work, guys…these ‘glory holes’ aren’t going to spackle themselves…”

(Paul Hooson) – “Hey, did you forget to put down a drop cloth over there? Look at all those white stains on the floor!”.

“No sir, they were left over from Bill Clinton…”.

Best Reuse of the Caption of Choice for the Trump Administration:

(Porkopolis) – In solidarity with the President, the construction workers went into Victory formation as they prepared to hoist a banner that read:

“…And Hillary Still Ain’t POTUS!”.

The Too-Soon Award for this Week:

(Brian Brandt) – Breaking news: Steve Bannon pried from White House office with help from two heavy duty cranes.

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

A Rich Man's War. A Poor Man's Fight.
What makes one a hero?

    Thank you so very much, Sarah and everyone! I am so thrilled and honored to share the coveted “Most Inappropriate Award” with the great Mary Gehman here. Who doesn’t love a good “glory hole and spackle joke” to tell to the family over the Sunday dinner!

    I want to take a moment to say something about the passing of Jerry Lewis, Like me he is also a Jew who liked to tell jokes, but he was no housefire joke comedian. But, regardless of this shortcoming, he was a great humanitarian who did a great deal of good with his annual MDA telet https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ff97832eb0fdfd40a2b21d8648df307b13550770503b14198c16a5e116f26e49.jpg hons. God bless him!

  • I keep tellin’ ya, Honor had nuttin’ to do with it! But thanks!

  • Thanks All!

  • Retired military

  • Mary Gehman

    Thanks for ‘most inappropriate’! I haven’t placed in that category for a while! It’s good to be ‘home’…

    I was tail end charlie on the awards this week, but still proud to have edged into a position with a joke nearly 80 years in the making. I will also note that just a 33% increase in the number of captions presented would have resulted in 6 more smiling award winners. Of course for some like Paul, a 33% increase in quantity would be a heavy lift.

  • Scorpion

    Thanks. It’s an honor to be honored.

  • Rock ThisTown

    Oh, wow, thanks for 4th. Didn’t have much to offer this week, so I’m surprised I made the winner’s circle. Great job, all!

  • Vagabond661

    Thanks Sarah!
