Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ was another smash hit. Given the news of Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize win on Friday I would have loved to done a topical contest for that, but I had this one in the publish queue long before the news was announced. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

WASHINGTON - OCTOBER 06: The Dalai Lama (R) presents House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) (L) with a Khata during a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol on October 6, 2009 in Washington, DC. The Lantos Foundation for Human Rights and Justice hosted the ceremony to honor the Dalai Lama as the first recipient of the Lantos Human Rights Prize.

Here are the winning entries:

1) (IowaRight) – “The Lama attempts a mind meld and just can’t pick up any signal…

2) (Pretzel Logic) – “You look dumber up close.

3) (Rodney Dill) – “Well… Hello Dalai…

4) (Jeff Blogworthy) – “Shudder. Being celibate just got a lot easier.

5) (Maggie Mama) – Pelosi: “You want to meet Sarah whoooooooo?

6) (sarahconnor2) – “Hilarity ensued in the Republican House lounge when Nancy Pelosi used the “secret Tibetan head knock greeting” Boehner had recommended to her.

The Readers Choice Award this week goes to IowaRight’s winning entry. In its place we honor the next highest vote getter not previously selected:

(retired military) – “Dalai lama – “for my next trick I will try to impart wisdom upon a rock”

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