Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This weeks Weekend Caption Contest™ went for the obvious... Even still I was surprised by the variety in the entries. Rodney nearly won with a late Sunday entry of, "Last time we went huntin' together, Cheney missed me by this much," but in the end I enjoyed the Cheney schlong gag better. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

A 2.7 trillion dollar budget for 2007 to be unveiled by the George W. Bush administration reportedly curbs core social programs while beefing up US defense spending by five percent.(AFP/File/Jim Watson)

Here are the winning entries:

1) (Rodney Dill) - "President Bush corrects the Dick Cheney Schlong myth."

2) (pprice) - "You see, that's why the 'virgin thing' is so important."

3) (DaveD) - "Damn, I can't believe I forgot my PIN again!!!! LAURAAAAA!!!!!"

Honorable Mention

4) (D. Carter) - "Well, ya know, alotta our foreign policy problems were created by two ex-presidents. I don't want to get personal, but their last names began with this letter."

5) (spacemonkey) - "W: What was my average at Yale? Well, I can show you in sign language."

6) (Smoke Eater) - "(Bush thought bubble) - I just wonder what will be said when I really DO crush someone's head by doing this?"

The Watches Too Much Noggin Award goes to:

(Mighty Dwight) - "C'mon everybody, sing it..C is for Cookies, that's good enough for me...C is for Cookies, that's good enough for me...OOOOOHHHH C is for Cookies, that's good enough for me...Ohh Cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C"

Until next Friday...

Rodney Dill:

Thanks Kevin, It's always an honor to place anywhere in the top six, its gotten pretty competitive.

I still think he's indicating the international symbol for gherkin, Aaron.

You know what is really fun... (Below threshold)

You know what is really fun about this contest? It's the variety of entries, and the fact that none are really vile, hateful, and totally disgusting - like you sees from entries posted over at Daily Kos.

Had this one been just a couple of days later, I could see the winner being: And Cheney said "Missed him by that much!" mimicking Don Adams!

Nice picks Keven!

Mighty Dwight:

I have a 5 year old and a 9 month old...so yes, I do watch entirely too much Noggin. But that was just begging to be done. I can see Bush leading his cabinet in the Cookie Monster song every day before discusing Iraq. ha.

This wasn't one of the better caption contests... in fact JAT's caption is clearly deserving of a retroactive win.

Steve Doherty Jr.:

Great job this week--I thought my
jab at the President's mother and father, respectively, was good enough for an
"honorable mention"--
but maybe next time.
Great submissions
Out of respect to "SIGN LANGUAGE"-THOUGH-
he is making a 'G'--but that's complete
nitpicking and I want to be considered
in the future.

Well Steve, a 'C' Student might mispell... ahhh forget it.

Steve Doherty Jr.:

Solid point, spacemonkey! I understand
where you're going with that--just paying respect
to any hearing-impaired writers/contest hopefuls.
