Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners Week of January 5, 2018

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ was another yuge success as there were over 300 posts. However, given that the three winners per place has become a source of much snark, in honor of a new year (and the mysterious fire at Hillary’s NY house), I’m going to just go with two winners per place with a few more honorable mentions. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un watches the launch of a Hwasong-12 missile.

Here are the winning entries:

1) (rodney dill) – “Okay, Open the next box from ACME.”

(Rock ThisTown) – “You’ll shoot your eye out, Kim!”

2) (Mary Gehman) – “Wham, Bham, thank you, ‘Nam…”

(Retired military) – Kim “Where’s the Kaboom? There was supposed to be an earth shattering kaboom”

3) (Kenny Moore) – Supreme Leader, France is on the phone. They surrender.

(yetanotherjohn) – Well, we know it is Trumps fault, now we just need to figure out how – This is CNN

4) (David Robertson) – Unbeknownst to Kim, Bugs Bunny removed the Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator just before launch.

(Blues Harper) – I’ll show you some Russian corrusion.

5) (Brian Brandt) – The North Korean version of “Hey, hold my beer and watch this!”

(guido81_MA) – I’m So Ronery
So ronery
So ronery and sadry arone
There’s no one
Just me onry
Sitting on my rittle throne
I work rearry hard and make up great prans
But nobody ristens, no one understands
Seems like no one takes me serirousry

6) (Paul Hooson) – “By the way, I’m also The Haircut President…”.

(stan25) – Wylie Coyote take a back seat

The Readers Choice Award this week goes to:

(cathymv) – We’re gonna need a bigger button!!

Honorable Mention(s):

(Olsoljer) – Up, up, up she go. Where she fall, nobody know.

(SameOldGirl) – I LOVE the smell of a missle launch in the morning!

(Scorpion) – After Klaatu and Gort depart following their “discussions” with Kim, he decides that maybe he would have a better outcome by nuking their planet instead.

(Wild_Willie) – Kimmy surrounded by his supporters.

(Rick Adams) – He doesn’t know how to use binoculars?

Most Inappropriate But Funny:

(TheyTukRJobz) – And nobody to play with my little button but me..

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

(fustian24) – Kim Jong Un still Supreme Leader.

Hillary still not.

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

The Trump 'Splainer Has Some Thoughts For Us
  • Retired military

    Thanks for second folks. I had nothing this week. Bugs bunny pulled it out.

  • Paul Hooson

    Thank you Sarah, so much for the recognition of my haircut joke. Also, a far bigger thank you for all the good wishes and prayers sent my way by all my good friends here, while I don’t feel well and am going through my health crisis situation right now.

    • fustian24

      Here’s hoping your cancer has a housefire and is forced to leave your good health intact.

      Kick it’s ass Paul!

    • Brian Brandt

      Hang in there.

    • Best of wishes, Paul.

    • Mary Gehman

      My thoughts and prayers are with you. (And, in an effort to keep some humor as well as God in the mix as you requested, I’m going to add “We’re all counting on you…”) Hang in there and keep the ‘home-fires’ burning, and we’ll all light some candles to help you in this endeavor. God Bless.

    • Scorpion

      Your sense of humor is definitely a formidable weapon on your side.

    • yetanotherjohn

      Get well soon and hope to see you Friday.

  • Thanks Sarah

    Meep meep

  • Rock ThisTown

    Thanks Sarah – great way to kick off the new year! Congrats to everyone & see ya Friday!

  • yetanotherjohn

    Its probably Trumps fault that we are only getting two winners per award, not our constitutionally enshrined three.

    • Brian Brandt

      Make a generous donation to the Clinton Foundation. They will supply the third winner.

      • sarahconnor2 #TermLimitsNow

        Great-I’ll load up my shed with unwanted stuff in anticipation!

        • yetanotherjohn

          You two do know the Clinton foundation hasn’t been doing so well the last year … just sayin’.

    • A third of the comments are not captions anyway… just banter back and forth.

      • yetanotherjohn

        But the comments are about the captions, so they are captions once removed. Besides, the constitution only talks about the number of captions as being equated with the number of comments. You’re just trying to force Sarah to count the number of captions while skipping comments about the captions.

        • Mary Gehman

          “Caption-ettes”? “Caption-ites”? “Cap-ments”? “Com-tions”? “Banter-tions”? Maybe a new winner’s category is in order…just sayin’. Let’s see what Sarah thinks… 🙂

          • yetanotherjohn

            Best banter? Would that be an individual comment or a thread? Lots of possibilities.

          • Mary Gehman

            I’ll pass it on to Sarah…see what she thinks about a new winner’s category. (Are you out there, listening, Sarah??? Come in, Sarah…over…)

          • yetanotherjohn

            A contest within a contest, I like it. Perhaps Sarah can also do an inverse Reader’s Choice award – a caption she really thinks is good, but got no love at all (0 likes). Perhaps “Best overlooked caption”. We do get some good ones late in the contest that most people don’t come around to see. Of course any changes like this will be required to go through the whole constitutional amendment process.

          • Mary Gehman

            Should I alert the media??? 🙂

          • yetanotherjohn

            Of course you are. After all, Wizbang is the media, so how can we make the change without alerting them?

          • Mary Gehman

            How about ‘Banter-Weights’??? (That’s a wrestling category, isn’t it?)

          • Bantem, boxing.

          • yetanotherjohn

            Chicken, but that’s bantam.

          • I think you have the spelling right, and it’s also a weight class in Golden Gloves Boxing (the lightest as I recall).

          • Mary Gehman

            I’m sticking with my original ‘Banter-Weight’…it fits the caption contest theme better! (You can tell I don’t box with anyone…I just shoot ’em!)

          • yetanotherjohn

            True that

      • Mary Gehman

        You actually counted them???

  • Mary Gehman

    Thanks for 2nd! I don’t know how much technological info is shared between Viet Nam and North Korea these days, but there was a time when this was more common. At least, that’s what I was told when I googled! Thanks again, God bless, and see y’all Friday morning when the ‘magic’ happens!

    • yetanotherjohn

      Wait, you did research for you captions. No fair.

      • Mary Gehman

        Only this one time. 😉

        • yetanotherjohn

          Well don’t let it happen again. We have standards you know.

          • Mary Gehman

            Well, “Mary” Christmas to you, too!

  • cathymv

    Readers Choice!!! Sweet!!! Thanks a bunch everyone… and thanks sarah!! Starting the new year off with REaders choice!!! ahhhh life is good.

    once again, you all had some really great captions!!!

    • That was a great caption. One I wish I’d thought of when I saw it.

  • The Life and Times of Elmer Rocket Gantry.
