Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This weeks Weekend Caption Contest™ was another smash hit, so much so that you really should just go read the all of the entries. With so many quality entries judging was hard. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Here are the winning entries:

1) (Peter F.) - "Papa's Got a Brand New Windbag"

2) (SurfinKC) - "I'm gonna make 'um an offer I can't understand."

3) (Baron Von Ottomatic) - "The hardest working man in race hustling!"

Honorable Mention

4) (scotty) - "Sharpton appears at another Bill Clinton rally under the huge banner reading "goo father", no doubt in reference to Bill's time with Monica."

5) (JimK) - "James Brown is gone, brothers and sisters. NOW I finally have the best hair in Harlem. Suck on that, Jesse!"

6) (fustian) - "Look, it's the Godfather of "Stole"."

The Too True Award goes to:

(Faith+1) - "Al Sharpton cashes in yet again by milking PR from the death of another more talented black man."

Until next Friday...

For some reason this pic didn't do much for me, but I liked Baron Von Ottomatic's and fustian's captions.

James Brown was a has-been at the time of his death and barely noticed long before that. He was a woman-beating thug and only a mediocre talent. This sudden reverence has a lot more to do with self-promotion of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and those cynical users than any regard for the legacy of James Brown.

No, I didn't like James Brown. I like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson even LESS.

Thanks, Kevin and gang!... (Below threshold)

Thanks, Kevin and gang!

I would be interested to know how you would react if a blogger held a similar contest with a picture from President Ford's funeral. Respect life and respect death. I thought that's what you neo-cons were all about.
