Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week's Weekend Caption Contest™ was another monster hit with over 160 entries, and few complaints. The complaints were answered by folks on the original entry. If you didn't like the picture you probably won't find the winning captions humorous either, so just move right along. I'm betting, however, that most people will want to see the winning captions, so if you're in that group read on...

The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Here are the winning entries:

1) (John Stark) - "I'm adopted! Thank God!!!!!"

2) (914) - "A face only a beaver could love."

3) (OregonMuse) - "What you get when you cross a corrupt lawyer with a corrupt politician."

4) (fustian) - "Surgeons mistakenly put the collagen in her teeth."

5) (Falze) - Hillary: "Are you sure the lift looks...natural?"
Carville: "You look great! No one will be able to tell you had any work done! Take THAT, Drudge!"

6) (Jay Wills) - "From the piercing call of the ultrasonic whistle, Chelsea knew it was, at last, time for dinner."

The Readers Choice Award this week went to John Stark's winning entry. In it's place I'm awarding the best use of a Caddyshack reference to:

(Pretzel_Logic) - "Last time I saw a mouth like that it had a hook in it..."

That's it for this weeks contest. A new edition of the Wizbang Weekend Caption Contest™ will debut Friday morning.

Hilarious! Nothing will beat Limbaugh comparing her to a dog though. I think she was 12. Now that she is older, it's totally cool to call her names.

I agree with jp2! Alert the media!

That was Rush's lowest point, without a doubt. In fact, I think it's still in poor taste to poke fun at her looks. While she's an adult now, and campaigning for her mother, she's not really a central player in the political world. Sure, under libel law, she'd be considered a "public figure," but the old wisdom advises "It is one thing to have the right to do something, but quite another to be right in doing it."

Give the kid a freakin' break. For her entire life, she will have to endure jokes about her mother, her father, Monica, Paula, & etc. Yet for all we know, Chelsea has never done anything wrong herself. The Constitution itself proscribes any "corruption of blood" - should we do less?

OK, time to retire yet another pseudonym. RIP, "John Stark." (New Hampshire hero of the Revolutionary War and coiner of the phrase "Live free or die; death is not the worst of all evils.")

For the record, I agree that this was not the best possible choice of pictures. That's why I tried to deflect the tone from being critical of Chelsea and focus not on her appearance, but her apparent happiness and/or surprise at the moment it was taken. Alas and alack, it didn't take.

Thanks, Kevin and readers.

WildWillie:

Chelsea is a grown woman who is on the campaign trail with her mother. Labeling her an "accessory" is more insulting then treating her like an adult. It is possible to have fun at anothers expense. ww
