Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners Week of November 10, 2017

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ served to reassure us that the MSM is NOT a bunch of lemmings, ignoring important stories to cover minutiae. I know after seeing this picture, my worries have been put to rest. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:


Here are the winning entries:

1) (jim_m) – A crowd of astonished citizens presses against the glass to get a picture of a government worker actually doing their job. Such an occurrence rarely happens and is not expected to come again to the US for at least another century.

2) (Rick Adams) – Yes, yes, we already know what the Democratic party symbol is, thank you very much.

3) (Hank_M) – Look!!! A new topic on Wizbang!

4) (Retired military) – Hillary was asked how she felt one year after losing the presidency.

5) (yetanotherjohn) – Raise you hand if you’re sure … and totally immune to reason, thought or history repeating itself?

6) (cathmyv) – Donna Brazilles secret service detail

The Readers Choice Award this week goes to:

(Mary Gehman) – “Would you look at that…Melania’s shoes don’t match…”

Honorable Mention(s):

(Rock ThisTown) – If we could only figure out why there’s no content diversity in the press

(Brian Brandt) – MSM amazed that Obama is too dumb to get out of jury duty.

Most Inappropriate But Funny:

(fustian24) – The latest must see attraction in Los Angeles is Hollywood producers out on the street masturbating for tourists.

(Joe_Miller) – Calm down, people. Everybody’s got pictures of Louis C.K. jerking off.

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

(rodney dill) – Donna Brazile schedules a press conference to announce that Hillary still isn’t the President of the United States.

The Too-Soon Award for this Week:

(Paul Hooson) – Pick one of his posts.

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

Liberals Lying Again: 'The Star Spangled Banner' is NOT 'Racist' in ANY Way
  • Paul Hooson

    Thank you, Sarah and everyone! I guess that Louis C.K. and Judge Roy Moore really inspired me to crank out the jokes. Man was I cranking them out. Cranking, cranking and more cranking. Now, my typing hand is tired from all that cranking….

    • jim_m

      Yes, Paul. We get it. You’re a crank.

      • yetanotherjohn

        I always thought of him more as a cog

        • or sabot?

          • yetanotherjohn

            I said cog, not clog you saboteur

          • …but throwing sabots into the machinery is where saboteur comes from.

          • yetanotherjohn

            That’s kind of wooden thinking.

          • …but it has sole

          • yetanotherjohn

            That’s another train of thought

          • jim_m

            With all that hair it is hard to see how Paul wouldn’t be a clog…

          • yetanotherjohn

            He could always move to London, and then his hair would be perfect.

          • jim_m

  • yetanotherjohn

    Reuse of commercial catch phrases and bashing the press … is this a great country or what?

  • Thanks Sarah

    I noticed the Blues Brothers references didn’t get anyone anywhere…. and they were on a mission from God.

    • Paul Hooson

      Sadly, sometimes doing the Lord’s work seems thankless, except in his eyes…

  • Retired military

    Thanks for 4th folks. Especially with the CK jokes it was some very stiff competition.

    • sarahconnor2 #TermLimitsNow

      Your caption made me break one of my personal judging guidelines-the caption should have some association with the photo. But after my husband and I stopped almost crying with laughter at your caption, it had to be a winner!

      • Retired military

        Thank you Sarah. I thought I had tied it in okay as in the press asking Hillary questions after the 1 year election anniversary.

  • Mary Gehman

    Thank you all for Reader’s Choice! I appreciate the thumb’s up votes among so many other great captions that got a thumb’s up, as well. Oh well…I gotta go and find some shoes that match and get to work. Have a great week and God Bless.

    • The shoes reference really captured the medias’ fixation on the trivial.

      • Mary Gehman

        I pretty much have what my husband calls a ‘shoe museum’! I love shoes! But, I’m not the media, so I can have a trivial fixation if I want to…sometimes! ­čśë

        • yetanotherjohn

          So you decided to come out of the closet about what you love?

          • Mary Gehman

            I am neither ashamed nor proud of my relationship with footwear, but I can assure you that the feeling is mutual…shoes love me as much as I love them. ­čśë

          • yetanotherjohn

            Sole mates

          • Mary Gehman

            …that re-boot daily…I feel like such a heel…

          • yetanotherjohn

            Tongue tied?

  • jim_m

    #1!! Thank you so much.

  • Hank_M

    Didn’t expect that, thank you all.

    • jim_m

      No one expects new topics on Wizbang

      • …or the Spanish Inquisition

        • yetanotherjohn

          our three main weapons are humor, sarcasm, irony and a recognition of the stupidty of the left.

          • …better start over and come in again.

          • yetanotherjohn

            our four main weapons are humor, sarcasm, irony, a recognition of the stupidity of the left and an almost fanatical devotion to the right.

          • yetanotherjohn

            Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition

  • Rock ThisTown

    Thanks Sarah for HM! And congrats to all winners!
