Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This weeks Weekend Caption Contest™ generated many memorable captions. Judging was conducted in between session of inconsolable infant crying, so even a short humor respite was sincerely appreciated by the judge. Here are the winning entries for this picture:

2) (tacitblue) - "The poster for Forty Year Old Virgin 2: Virgins Unite"

3) (Laurence Simon) - "Michael Jackson prepares to film a new Pepsi commercial."

Honorable Mention

4) (Tom Blogical) - "Where's the KA-Boom? There was supposed to be an earth-shattering KA-Boom!"

5) (Margo Demers) - "Using modern technology, wishful thinking and special rose-colored glasses, hundreds of liberals watch a re-broadcast of the 2000 election results. AlGore wins."

6) (Brian) - "This crowd required sunglasses to shield their eyes from the sheer brilliance of the Miers nomination."

The Shameless Suckup Award goes to bullwinkle for this entry:

"As the worlds brightest blog's popularity continues to grow internationally thousands of Europeans don their protective eyewear to experience their first Wizbang."

Until next Friday...
