Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners Week of December 15, 2017

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ made many posters think we were in February rather than December. We had 300 great posts and have three winners per place. Points were given for celebrating redundancy in your post but NOT if you were merely engaging in it by recycling your post from the last use of this picture. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Here are the winning entries:

1) (Rock ThisTown) – When Harry Met Melania, The Sequel

(rodney dill) – Harry: “No, no, I’m sure I told Kevin to REPENT!”

(Retired military) – Kevin put Hillary in charge of the caption contest this week and like everything else she wants a redo.

2) (fustian24) – Once you go ginger, you never go….oh…yeah. You already know that.

(Paul Hooson) – How can you tell when it’s holiday season?

Repeats on TV and on the Caption Contest…

(yetanotherjohn) – Is this one of those ‘spot six things different in the picture’ caption contests?

3) (cathymv) – So after Trump has been President for over a year now, we can confirm he DOES have balls this big!!

(Brian Brandt) – Yes, marrying Meghan Markle is a big break from the Royal Family’s tradition. She’s not my cousin.

(DJD60_TX) – “Well, in England we have a Tower of London where traitors are held pending their trial. Why you Americans put them in charge of investigating the President, I can’t begin to explain”

4) (Rick Adams) – I’m sorry, all I can do is look at the plant and giggle. Oh, wait! Is THAT why it’s called a Harvey Wallbanger??

(Eric Steel) – I see from the flowerpot Harvey Weinstein was here.

(Kenny Moore) – Thank you for helping our wounded warriors keep stiff … uh, upper lips.

5) (Mike) – “And that’s why I’m here, to get a government grant from your husband so that Wizbang doesn’t have to recycle old pictures for their caption contest!”

(Joe_Miller) – “These hands were made by God to gently caress your bum.”

(BluesHarper) – Much like President Trump, Harry conveys his fondness for ass grabbing.

6) (Rodney Graves) – This Caption Contest begins to remind me of Seinfeld…

(Scorpion) – During a break in the caption buffoonery, Harry asked what the family’s plans were for Christmas morning. “We’re doing something different this year. Donald’s going to tweet that we’re planning on watching 12 hours of CNN, MSNBC, ABC and CBS’s heads exploding instead of the usual 8”.

(Olsojer) – Quite simple Madam. Her booty fits perfectly.

The Readers Choice Award this week goes to:

(Mary Gehman) – “It’s ‘Groundhog Day’ at the Wiz Bang Caption Contest…”

Most Inappropriate But Funny:

(fustian24) – Melania: So Harry, does the carpet match the drapes?
Harry: Sure does. What about yours?
Melania: What carpet?

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

(Dave Robertson) – No matter how many times this image is used for a caption contest, Hillary still isn’t the President.

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

  • Retired military

    Thanks for the 1st place tie folks.

    • yetanotherjohn

      Well deserved, you broke a Pulitzer worthy scoop.

      • Retired military

        Thank you but I didnt get a coveted EW award. I blame the fact that I have spent the last 72 hours on my couch with this crud that is going around. I was so miserable Friday night I couldnt even get to sleep until 3 am Saturday morning and havent slept more than 2 hours at a time since then.
        Total food intake for the weekend. half a pizza and a bowl of oatmeal.

        • yetanotherjohn

          Get well soon … and stay away from me.

        • Mary Gehman

          ‘Half a pizza and a bowl of oatmeal’…breakfast of champions, I see! I’ll give you a big “EWWWW” for what ever creeping crud you’ve got as long as you keep all the snot, phlegm, puke or whatever to yourself! (In all seriousness, I do hope you feel better…get well before Friday morning so you can be at the top of your game and get an ‘ew’ the old-fashioned way!) 🙂

  • Sixth place… Thanks?

    • yetanotherjohn

      Be grateful it wasn’t coal in your stalking.

    • A caption contest about nothing

    • Olsoljer

      Sixth below yours. Last last place in the standings, We were contenders.

  • jim_m

    Wait, shouldn’t everyone who won last time also win this time?

    • Point!

    • yetanotherjohn

      Not if you weren’t as funny this time … I’m just sayin’.

      • jim_m

        I made no entries so I was either every bit as funny or not nearly as funny depending on how you look at it.

        • yetanotherjohn

          Glass half full, glass half empty. However you decide probably says more about you than the subject.

          • jim_m

            Glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

          • yetanotherjohn

            We’re going to need a bigger glass.

    • sarahconnor2 #TermLimitsNow

      No

      • Mary Gehman

        The simplest answer is usually the best answer. You were direct and concise…I like it!

      • jim_m

        I’m just thinking in the spirit of repeats…

        • sarahconnor2 #TermLimitsNow

          Just kidding! I’m sorry. I was that mood last night after my 8 year old gave me a long drawn out justification of why he should stay up late.

  • Brian Brandt

    Thanks for the 3rd Place.

    And thanks for the 3rd Place.

    • yetanotherjohn

      Thats as redundant as the picture.

      • Brian Brandt

        That’s as redundant as the picture.

        • yetanotherjohn

          jinx

          • Brian Brandt

            I know you are but what am I?

          • yetanotherjohn

            I’m rubber, you’re glue. What you say bounces off me and sticks to you.

          • Mary Gehman

            Now, kids…play nice-nice…don’t make me come over there…

          • yetanotherjohn

            He started it.

    • Paul Hooson

      You were far more inspired this week than last week, my friend. I missed your jokes last week…

  • Let me see…three times six, plus three, carry the one…we’re number thirteen! We’re number thirteen! Thanks!

    • yetanotherjohn

      Lucky you

    • Mary Gehman

      I just love ti when folks do math the old-fashioned way! There’s a certain ‘poetry’ to it!

      • yetanotherjohn

        I love ti too. I love ti in the morning, in the afternoon. I love me some ti anytime.

        • Mary Gehman

          Oh sure, everyone’s a critic…But, fair is fair… I pick one you when you type something back asswards. But, just for the record, my punctuation is flawless!

          • I never pick one yetanotherjohn.

          • Mary Gehman

            I got nothing to say to that… 🙂

          • yetanotherjohn

            Snicker

          • Mary Gehman

            Who asked YOU???!!! I’m talking to Rodney… 🙂

          • yetanotherjohn

            snicker, snicker

          • Mary Gehman

            Beast… 🙂

          • Mary Gehman

            that’s because there’s always ‘yet another’ one…

          • yetanotherjohn

            John’s are like whores and trains. If you miss one, you can always jump on the next one.

      • Well, my very first calculator had a slide in the middle! But the battery never went dead!

        • Mary Gehman

          An abacus??? 🙂

          • No, that was my backup in case my slide rule overheated!

  • Paul Hooson

    WOW! Thank you Sarah and everyone! Despite working the Christmas rush unloading trucks and doing freight, I managed an entry good enough for a #2 tie. – Strangely, there’s also probably a few folks who think that me and my housefire jokes are a regular #2 as well…

    Well, back to celebrate what seems like the 41st night of Hanukkah…Some holidays never end it seems…

    • yetanotherjohn

      You show up late, knock off a handful of captions and took silver. Napoleon would want you as a general.

      • Paul Hooson

        Thank you my friend! I always deeply appreciate your efforts as well. I think in my case, being Jewish certainly helps. If a Jew isn’t funny, then they legally can qualify for disability payments.

        • yetanotherjohn

          There is a theory that all humor is based at some level on pain. Why Jews would be more apt to excel at humor is one of those mysteries of history. I mean just because you get scattered across the planet, people periodically try to kill you off in job lots and you still retain a culture certainly couldn’t be the answer.

          • Paul Hooson

            My ancestors fled the MidEast and also Portugal, later fleeing Austria, before finding things far more calm in Canada and the U.S. – I guess when you have to pack up and move that many times you need to keep a little humor…

          • Mary Gehman

            My family fled Sicily…and Mussolieni… and Mt. Etna…It seems my grandfather preferred ‘democratic’ volcanic eruptions to the ‘communist’ kind!

          • yetanotherjohn

            My family left Denmark about a hundred years ago because there was more economic opportunity in the U.S. So maybe my pain theory doesn’t pan out given Paul and I tied, but Mary got reader’s choice (with a disgustingly good caption that I totally would have gotten if I had shown up earlier).

          • Mary Gehman

            Thank y-ew! But, I still think I would have thought of the “Groundhog’s Day” caption before y-ew thought of it…it’s just the way it is….deal with it! 🙂

          • yetanotherjohn

            So you admit you stole it from my mind before I thought of it.

          • Mary Gehman

            It’s true…I have the ability to get inside your head…probably under your skin, too! Like a rash or a fungus… 😉

  • yetanotherjohn

    Silver Medals, Silver Medals
    It’s Christmas time on the web
    Click-a-lick, hear them click
    Soon it will be Christmas Day

    Thanks all. I look forward to next week when we will have a very early wizbang caption contest picture repeat from the Carter administration.

    • Mary Gehman

      The Carter (S)administration…now, there’s a good time….right up there with a long stay in a Turkish prison…

      • yetanotherjohn

        Do you also like gladiator movies?

        • Mary Gehman

          Yes…and I’ve seen a naked man, too…just don’t call me Shirley…

          • Guess I picked the wrong week to give up sniffing glue.

          • yetanotherjohn

            They wrote their caption, I say let them crash.

          • Mary Gehman

            Considering the Turkish prison stay, seeing a naked man, and being called Shirley…I think something more ‘potent’ than glue-snifing is called for…say bath salts or maybe heroin…it’s something to think about…

          • It was up to amphetamines by movies end… Just a matter of pace.

          • yetanotherjohn

            Hey man, just get high on life.

          • I prefer Cherios to Life

          • yetanotherjohn

            Trix are for kids … Trixy is for adults … naughty adults.

          • Dilly dilly

          • yetanotherjohn

            As long as it is not a ‘lil debbie’ if you know what I mean.

    • Hmmmm….pre-internet…

    • Well some from the Clinton Administration anyway

      Some of the older photos links are broken. Interesting winner for this one.

  • Rock ThisTown

    Thanks for #1 Sarah! Deja ku-dos to all!

    • Mary Gehman

      Deja-Voodoo…Deja-view again….Deja-vEW….Deja-Who?….

      • yetanotherjohn

        Scooby-dooby-doo

  • Thanks Sarah!

    • yetanotherjohn

      What about the rest of us who had to read your captions? Sharper than a serpent’s tooth, It is to have a thankless child!

      • Maybe you’re thinking of Readers Choice… where your votes actually count for something.

        • yetanotherjohn

          Nah, those are usually good captions.

  • cathymv

    Tied for third… sweet!! Thanks sarah! I only had the one caption, and I loved reading the rest… you are so inventful!!!

    • cathymv

      inventive…..?? yeah….

      • yetanotherjohn

        I think the word you are looking for is cheesy … maybe juvenile … or puerile.

  • Mary Gehman

    Thank you all for Reader’s Choice! Thank you all for Reader’s Choice! (But, then again, I repeat myself!)

    • Did you wash and rinse first?

      • Mary Gehman

        Only if I must! 😉

    • yetanotherjohn

      Personally, I think you resemble yourself.

      • Mary Gehman

        I do…me, too…and myself, as well!

        • yetanotherjohn

          all three of you?

          • Mary Gehman

            Yes…okay…and you betcha!

          • yetanotherjohn

            So if I get really drunk their would be 6 of you (shudder).

          • Mary Gehman

            At least 6, and none of them very nice! (My middle name is “Sybil”)! :0

          • yetanotherjohn

            Is your hair dresser a snake charmer by any chance? Just asking.

          • Mary Gehman

            Yes, he is…and his ‘ride’ is a magic carpet…and, my nick-name in the salon is Medusa… 🙂
            (No-No…there will be no conversation on the double meaning of ‘magic carpet’ to follow!)

  • Scorpion

    Thank you Sarah for sharing 6th. Is this the start of a best use of a deja vu award?

    • yetanotherjohn

      That’s a question I keep asking myself.

  • If at first you don’t succeed…..

    • yetanotherjohn

      cheat?

      • …maybe failure is your style.

        • yetanotherjohn

          You didn’t win gold, you lost silver … or something.

      • Cheating is just another term for accessing all your resources. 🙂

  • Olsoljer

    Thanks also.

  • Can’t let it just sit there with only 99 comments.

    • Mary Gehman

      I think I just got us over 100 comments. It’s not official…this ‘Contest Winner’s portion of the contest this week has garnered more comments than some of the actual caption contests themselves! Do I smell a new winner’s category looming???!!! (Hint, Hint…)

  • Mary Gehman

    …if they would just give us our fix early on Friday morning….just give us the new picture to caption…we could stop fixating (for a third time!) on this photo and move on…instead, they leave us jones-ing for a new drug…that’s just cruel… (Ha! Ha!)
