Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners Week of December 1, 2017

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ featured leftovers from Thanksgiving. Lots of great captions-enough so that we have two winners per place. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Here are the winning entries:

1) (Kenny Moore) – Harvard’s first bird of color, claims to be 1/32 raven.

(yetanotherjohn) – Disgusted with the press, Mattis came out and shot the bird.

2) (Rock ThisTown) – “I know what you’re thinking. Did the turkey lay 6 eggs or only 5, and to tell you the truth, amidst all this excitement, I lost track myself. So you’ve got to ask yourself one question, do you feel embryonic? Well, do ya punk?”

(cathymv) – After being pardoned, someone is headed into the whiteness protection program

3) (Retired military) – What happened : Trump pardons Turkey

NY TIMES Headline : Trump practices law without a license.

(fustian24) – Brian Ross reported that the White House considered murdering this eagle.

4) (Wild_Willie) – “Stuff this”.

(Mary Gehman) – Feather-Muckers..

5) (Brian Brandt) – White House press corps demands that Sarah Huckabee Sanders produce pictures of herself giving birth to this turkey.

(Paul Hooson) – Strangely, John Conyers asked the turkey if they would like to join his “Black caucus”, if you know what I mean…

6) (Scorpion) – Having heard seeing his shadow would mean that Trump will be re-elected, the media exits their clown car to block the sun.

(RadiCalMan) – You may have been pardoned for Thanksgiving, but it doesn’t extend to Christmas!

The Readers Choice Award this week goes to:

(Joe_Miller – Come on people. This is Washington. You act like you’ve never seen a turkey before.

Honorable Mention(s):

(Par4Course) – A Republican holdout on Tax Reform holds a press conference.

(OlSolJer) – ………………and then Matt Lauer locked the door to his office and showed me HIS pecker…

Most Inappropriate But Funny:

(rodney dill) – Why did Trump pardon the turkey, but not Hillary?
Because there’s no chance ever, of Hillary being eaten.

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

(Rick Adams) – You know who else is a turkey but also isn’t President? That’s right…

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

Round Nine
The Vicious Peril of Mob Justice
  • Paul Hooson

    Thank you so much Sarah and everyone! I spent the week telling my friends Matt Lauer and John Conyers jokes and managed to tailor a joke to this contest caption. The Matt Lauer jokes needed to be performed live to be funny, but the “Black caucus” punchline still worked in the turkey gag here. I had another joke that I didn’t submit which had me laughing really hard, but I thought was just too dirty to retell here with the turkey angle, so believe it or not, my humor does have some standards.

    “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action”
    Gold again. And paired with that great 1/32 raven caption. You know next week I’ll be lucky to get anything at all. Thanks.

    • Mary Gehman

      I’m so sorry you’re not getting any next week… 😉

      • yetanotherjohn

        That’s okay, I expect I’ll get a little sumpthin’ sumpthin’ tonight.

        • Mary Gehman

          I’ll alert the media…

          • film at 11

          • Mary Gehman


          • yetanotherjohn

            Film, hah. Don’t you know everything is now video?

          • Depends what kind of film I’m referring too.

            …but along that line on one of the NCIS shows (I think) someone said “Roll the tapes” (or film), and was corrected that everything was now digital and there were no tapes. Then the person who did the correcting said, “Roll the footage.” (yet another tape reference). Hilarious.

          • yetanotherjohn

            Are we talking film like on the shower glass?

  • Thanks Sarah
