Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This weeks Weekend Caption Contest™ seemed like such a good idea at the time, but upon further reflection I realized how hard a picture it was to caption. The winning entries this week did a good job with this hard to caption picture:

Louisiana Lt. Gov. Mitchell Landrieu, left, talks with Jazz great and New Orleans native Wynton Marsalis, right, before testifying with Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco, in background via video teleconferencing, at the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee joint hearing on rebuilding Louisiana, Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2005 in Washington.

Here are the winning captions::

1) (Eric) - "Introducing the new Three Stooges; Jazzy, Curly, and Doh!"

2) (smitty) - "Hey Wynton, can you do a jazz version of Bad Moon Rising?"

3) (Eric) - "Mayor Ray Nagin laughs from his Dallas, TX poolside retreat while watching the Congressional Hearings into Katrina on C-SPAN, knowing full well that whitey can't tell one black man from another."

Honorable Mention

4) (FreakyBoy) - "The ghost of Blanco appears In the New Orleans Playhouse's updated version of Macbeth."

5) (Cybrludite) - "Dude, Best. Perp-Walk. EVER!"

6) (bullwinkle) - Winton: "We're sticking it to whitey now!"
Mitch: "Yeah!...Hey, wait a minute..."

The Lloyd Braun Award goes to:

IreneFingIrene) - "New to ABC's TGIF line-up:

Yet another hilarious 'Perfect Strangers' spinoff from the makers of Miami Vice and Night Ridder... An action-comedy starring Urkel (Jaleel White) from Family Matters and Larry Appleton (Mark Linn-Baker) from Perfect Strangers fighting crime in a post-apocalyptic NOLA after Katrina.

Linn-Baker is given a fresh chance in life when he is granted parole from Pelican Bay and partnered up with White. Can he control his steroid rages and convince White that his Aryan Brotherhood past was just a survival technique in a harsh prison?

The two are guided by the wise words and experience of the Blanco 2005 crime-fighting machine who appears as a holograph whenever their hilarious hijinks get out of control."

Until next Friday...

Wow, two in the top three. I feel honored beyond all measure.

I just thought of another one.

Lt. Governor Mitch Landrieu congratulates Jazz artist Wynton Marsalis after Marsalis uses some old fashioned voodo magic to turn Governor Blanco into a mindless zombie. However, polls show that since then few people have noticed any difference in Gov. Blanco.
