Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners Week of August 25, 2017

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ celebrated the ancient ritual of trying to watch an eclipse while also trying not to watch it. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:


Here are the winning entries:

1) (yetanotherjohn) – If Trump doesn’t see his shadow during the full eclipse, he’s president until at least 2021.

2) (guido81_MA) – Hee-hee, maybe I should point out that the sun is “kinda white” so I can watch the CNN debate on how to permanently eclipse its privilege.

3) (Mike) – “Slightly cloudy with a chance of awesomeness!”

4) (fustian24) – If Harvey gets any worse, Trump’s gonna change it’s name to “Hillary”.

She’s stalled and won’t go away either.

5) (McG) – “If he has to be looking at something else smiling like that, I’m just glad it’s a celestial phenomenon and not a younger supermodel.”

6) (cathymv) – Trump looks like he is enjoying watching the democrats 2018 chances of taking over the House and the Senate blow up

The Readers Choice Award this week goes to:

(Retired military) – Trump “Ha. I see that eclipse and raise you one of my own”

Honorable Mention(s):

(douglube) – And I thought only Chuck Norris could stare down the sun.

(OlSolJer) – MELANIA: Donald, there is a antifa dressed body splattered all over our sidewalk!

PRESIDENT: Yeah, I know honey, here comes another one. Gotta love them bikers!

Most Inappropriate But Funny:

(rodney dill) – “Look, The moon is giving the sun a Lewinsky.”

(Paul Hooson) – When he got spattered with white he just assumed it was a bird. Then, he noticed Bill Clinton standing on the balcony waving…

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

(Rick Adams) – I’m not entirely sure what’s going on in this photograph, but orange you glad Hillary is not President?

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

      Same here, BB. Congratz to all this week’s winners!

  • yetanotherjohn

    Thanks for the Gold. The Green Giant one of mine I liked the most got no love and this one took gold. Go figure.

  • “We’re number three! We’re number three!” Thanks, Sarah. There was a lot of awesomeness to go around this week!

  • Retired military

    THanks for reader’s choice.

  • Paul Hooson

    Thank you Sarah and everyone. One again I resorted to the lowest common denominator, and worked the room “blue” with good results. Like my fellow Jews, Lenny Bruce, Andrew Dice Clay and Gilbert Gottfried, I’ve become the resident shock humor comic here recently it seems with comedy that pushes the envelope a little.

    I’d like to express my sympathy to Donald Trump Jr. and Eric. When the two of them got into their dad’s bedroom drawer magazine stash, instead of finding PLAYBOY, they found RUSSIAN PROSTITUTE BEDWETTERS Magazine instead. That can’t be a good thing to find, although it probably led to lively grade school sex ed class discussions.

    As entertaining as this Trump Administration is, I still think that Hillary could have been every bit as entertaining as well as the two-for deal of having Bill Clinton to provide additional entertainment. The late night comics would have won either way, where Bill Clinton “pants down” jokes might have provided some great comic moments. My “inappropriate” joke this week proved that Bill Clinton humor still has plenty of legs…

    • Brian Brandt

      Sex tourism in Russia has hit a new low with the bedwetters. I think I’ll stick to Thailand.

      • Paul Hooson

        I know, that’s one heck of a fetish.

  • cathymv

    Ohh a squeeker with 6th!! Thanks Sarah! I loved the captions everyone had this week, they were great as usual!!

  • Thanks Sarah

  • After a local/national news story over the weekend, I should’ve thought of this one. (Maybe someone did and I missed it.
