« “NIH” ain’t kosher | Main | Rack 'Em »


This weekend’s Caption Contest was tough to judge. I was looking for people to swerve and avoid the obvious “three monkeys” theme, and I wasn’t disappointed.

First place goes to Jmaster for reaching back to 1978 with this gem:

As the strains of the Village People’s “YMCA” play in the background:

Cohen: “I can make an “O” this way..”

WJC: “This sort of looks like an “S”..”

Madeline: “I got the “A”..”

Sandy: “ The “M” is a little tougher, but if I move my arms this way..”

WJC: “ Hey, we need another “A”. Hillary, get over here in this last chair and make a real “A” out of yourself! Ha ha ha…! Damn, this national security stuff really IS funny. It is just so great that we can all laugh about it!”

Sandy: “Yeah this is a good one. We can’t forget to break into this routine at the security meeting next week. I’ll jot down a little note here in this report from Clarke to remind us. Note: Gang must break into O-S-A-M-A routine every time someone says “Osama Bin Laden.”

Second prize was claimed by Rob, with this interpretation of the postures shown:

As Hillary sings Itsy Bitsy Yellow Polka Dot Bikini:

COHEN: (thinking)Oh...my...GOD her voice is screechy. No wonder Bill never spends any time with her.

BILL: (thinking)God I think I'm gonna barf. Think Monica...think Monica.,

ALBRIGHT: (thinking)I can't watch! Yet, strangely, I can look at myself in the mirror. Naked. Strange...

BERGER: (speaking)Ahhh yeah. You go girl! Hold on, this CIA briefing in my pants is startin' to chaffe.

And third, proving that quite often brevity is indeed the soul of wit, here’s McGeHee’s twist:

Berger: "Hey, let's play another game of 'Guess What I Have in My Pants'!"

Cohen: "I didn't just hear you say that!"

Clinton: "I think I'm gonna hurl."

Albright: "I'm so embarrassed that I keep winning this game!"

Thanks to everyone for playing, and watch for a new contest on Friday!

That's how I've been fooling people all these years that I'm witty. Stick with what works.

Hey, thanks for the props! That entry was actually my first post at Wizbang!. I expect it won't be my last.

Be careful, Jmaster. I star... (Below threshold)

Be careful, Jmaster. I started out as a 2nd-place caption contest winner, moved on to first, then wuz robbed of a http://wizbangblog.com/archives/001416.php. The next step was jumping in on an "open mike" night, and the next thing I knew, Kevin done offered me my own key to this place. I'm just glad he hasn't yet sobered up from THAT one.

See just how dangerous these caption contests can be? They're the "gateway drug" to blogging.
