Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This weeks Weekend Caption Contest™ was a Mardi Gras challenge. I'd hoped that our resident New Orleans editor might chime in on the entries, but that would have required that put down his drink and come in from the balcony, leaving the Captain Morgan girls to fend for themselves. Apparently that was too tall and order... The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Here are the winning entries:


1) (Hoodlumman) - "SHOW US YOUR PRE-NUPS!!"

2) (spacemonkey) - "With these bead's, I thee bed."

3) (Guido) - "It's a nice day for White Chocolate Wedding."

Honorable Mention

4) () - "Bill! Bill Clinton! I'm over here!"

5) (Stephen Macklin) - "A fourth bride, Katrina Smith, was rushed to the hospital when onlookers began throwing bricks instead of beads."

6) (Rachel Edith) - "New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin lost the Mardi Gras Big Mouth Contest this year to a newcomer."

The Most Excellent But Completely Out Of Place Award goes to:

Rodney's Ray Nagin song


Until next Friday...
