Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This weeks Weekend Caption Contest™ went to the wild blue yonder, which for many people was an excuse to make John Kerry jokes. Those captions might have won in 2004, but this week they had about as much success as their namesake. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:
