Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners Week of November 17, 2017

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ ushers us into Thanksgiving week. I am thankful that Kevin did NOT use the Al Franken picture and that Hillary is not in this week’s photo. We have double winners for each place this week as we were over 200 posts for the contest. The assignment was to caption the following picture:

Here are the winning entries:

1) (Rock ThisTown) – “The flexibility offer you may have heard about has expired.”

(Joe_Miller) – I haven’t seen matching shirts like that since The Monkees went off the air.

2) (Kenny Moore) – One, two, three, four, I declare a trade war.

(Brian Brandt) – Drag a hundred-ruble bill through an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, you never know what you’ll find.

3) (Wild_Willie) – “Smile all you want but we’re getting our uranium back.”

(fustian24) – Sorry Vlad. No reset button this time. But I DO have a couple of carrier groups with a “Better Stop It NOW” button on each one.

4) (Paul Hooson) – Biz Czar?

(Olsoljer) – PUTIN: Well $145 million was kind of steep until she threw in all that classified information. I’m not sure where all those e mails are, if I can’t find them China, North Korea and Iran all have copies also.

5) (Mike) – “I’m taller than you, have better hair than you and doggone it, people like me!”

(Retired military AND Cathymv in a joint effort) – Putin “So Mr President, who do you think will be running for your office in after your 8 years?”

Trump “Well you never know who might put their hag in the ring?”

6) (Scorpion) – Don’t look now Vlad, but Odd Job back there looks like he or she is getting aroused.

(guido81_MA) – Brotherhood of the Ugly Shirt

The Readers Choice Award this week goes to:

(sarahconnor2) – “Once again I have to apologize for Senator Franken humping your leg while you were sleeping, Vlad.”
Thanks everyone!
Honorable Mention(s):

(Rick Adams) –

(Stephen_Macklin) – President Trump reminded Putin that if Hillary had won he would be doing this photo opp in an orange pant suit.

Most Inappropriate But Funny:

(Mary Gehman) – “I say we go grab some lunch and some pussy and call it a day…”

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

(yetanotherjohn) – Putin: I would like to try an American form of humor, the knock knock joke. Pretend you are visiting the White House and you knock on the door.

Trump: Knock Knock

Putin: Who’s there

Trump:Not Hillary

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

    My caption humor was knocked up this week. Thanks all. Lots of great captions but I personally enjoyed Brian Brant’s the most. Of course Mary’s should receive a giant ‘EW’ from everyone.

    • Mary Gehman

      Thank Ew!

    • Brian Brandt

      Thanks for the hat-tip, John. Democrats always provide the most time-tested fodder for captions.

      . . . and I second the ew for that Gehman woman.

  • A multitude of excellent captions! Just thankful to be counted among them! Good work people!

  • Retired military

    Thanks all for 5th. And thanks to Mary for the assist. I will take all the help I can get.

    • Mary Gehman

      I’m not sure how I helped you, but, if I did, you are welcome!

      • Retired military

        Sorry was heading out the door as I typed it. Changed it now.

        • yetanotherjohn

          I’m so confused

  • Paul Hooson

    Thank you so much! I always considered myself better at hat or hair jokes, but I’m very happy to pulled off some shirt jokes here. BTW, the Salvation Army has shirts for half price on Wednesdays, but judging from the looks of these shirts on the Donald and the Vlad, it sure likes they found shirts even cheaper somewhere else….

    • Brian Brandt

      Couldn’r work in a house fire joke on this one?

      • Paul Hooson

        I’m just a Jewish comic, not a miracle worker. Moses has me beat…

        • So you claim self identify…

        • yetanotherjohn

          I don’t know, your personal life sounds like you are calling down plagues on yourself.

          • Paul Hooson

            No good Jew would be a good Jew if they were not without a home for a time or long suffering. I know both…

          • yetanotherjohn

            Good news is if your shlepping around for forty years, your shoes won’t wear out, so you have that going for you.

  • Mary Gehman

    Thanks for Most Inappropriate! I must be ‘trew’ to my inner ‘ew’ and let her out every once in a while! Okay…you’re right…I let her out more than once in a while…but, when she meets up with other people’s inner ew’s, it’s a b-ew-tiful thing! Thank ew to my favorite Ew Crew for bringing out the best in me, week after week! There were some really great ones this week, so I’m pleased to place anywhere on the winner’s list. Have a great week, and God Bless ew all!

    • Retired military

      I speak for all the winners of the past EW awards when I say

      Ew r welcome

    • yetanotherjohn

      Ew light up my life

  • Joe_Miller

    Thanks for first. I’m guessing the average age here is fairly close to my own if folks got the Monkees reference.

    • Brian Brandt

      HEY! HEY! We’re the Monkees!
      And people say we monkey around!
      But we’re too busy singing
      To put anybody down!

      Fun Fact: Bette Nesmith Graham, mother of Monkee Michael Nesmith, invented liquid correction fluid when she was a secretary in a Texas bank. While painting holiday windows in the bank, she realized that ‘painting over’ could ease the frustration of typing mistakes. Some bank execs didn’t like it, but she used it for five years, improving her formula with the help of her son’s high school chem teacher. Coworkers frequently sought her “paint out.” She eventually began marketing her typewriter correction fluid as “Mistake Out” in 1956.

      • Paul Hooson

        THE MONKEES was actually the second TV series to star Mickey Dolenz. When I was young, Mickey Dolenz was the star of CIRCUS BOY which ran from 1956-1958 on NBC… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b085e335e028b01794ec058510cad4f4d487cc3582b4d36f365bf8dcffd024da.jpg

        • Mary Gehman

          What ever happened to Davy Jones and the other one…was it Peter Tork or Stork??? Anyway, I loved The Monkees…they actually had some pretty good songs that I still remember. I just hate it that I’m that old…oh well, it could be worse…I could be dead!

          • Paul Hooson

            Davy Jones sadly died a few years ago. Peter Tork had rejoined The Monkees to tour as an oldies act a short time before the death of Davy Jones. Michael Nesmith had been involved in his own film and music projects since leaving the act long ago, and never seemed interested in rejoining the act.

          • Mary Gehman

            Thanks for the update! You must be great in a game of Trivial Pursuit! Happy Thanksgiving! See you and the rest of the ‘crEW’ tomorrow morning…assuming there is a photo to caption!

          • yetanotherjohn

            Ew betcha sees us all in our places with bright shining faces

  • Olsoljer

    Thank you. (yetanotherjohn) Knock knock may be around for a while – loved it!

    • yetanotherjohn

      Thank you, thank you very much

  • Brian Brandt

    Retired military AND Cathymv in a joint effort

    Since when can we do joint efforts? I want to team up with Mary Gehman to take EW over the top.

    • yetanotherjohn

      Twinsies shirts, pair up captions. Coincidence? I think not.

    • Mary Gehman

      Partners In Slime??? The Ew-sual Suspects???

  • Scorpion

    Thank you Sarah.

  • Rock ThisTown

    Oh wow, Sarah. Didn’t expect it, but thanks nonetheless for top place this week w/JM! No matter how many #1s I have, my teenage daughter still doesn’t appreciate my SOH. Sigh.

    Personal fave was Scorpion’s ‘Odd Job’, lol. Just the idea of a movie character named ‘Odd Job’ cracks me up . . . that, combined with Putin’s slight (great?) resemblance to Goldfinger is hilarious to me. Congratz to all!

    • yetanotherjohn

      What do you think of a character titled ‘random task’?

      • Rock ThisTown

        It’s up there with ‘peculiar chore’

        • yetanotherjohn

          Try watching Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

      • Paul Hooson

        Manuel Labor?

        • yetanotherjohn

          Enigmatic Opus?

          • yetanotherjohn

            Chaotic work?

    • Paul Hooson

      Well, there’s Blofeld and Odd Job, so how about a criminal who combines the worst elements of both, Blo Job…

      • yetanotherjohn

        In this I think it is better to receive than to give.
