Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week's Weekend Caption Contest™ was just the tonic a large number of folks needed to get some McCain venom out of their system. Captioning when bitterly disappointed and/or angry may not always make for the most humorous of captions, but if it made folks feel better then perhaps everyone's a winner this week. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Here are the winning entries:

1) (DJ Drummond) - ""I'm a true Reagani-"






2) (WildWillie) - "People are horrified as McCain demonstrates how tough he is by giving himself a tracheotomy using just his finger."

3) (fustian) - "And I was lying about amnesty before any of my competitors lied about amnesty..."

4) (Stephen Macklin) - "The Senator's throat began to constrict in an apparent allergic reaction when he attempted to sound like a conservative."

5) (itismedavid) - "I just came from the Senate private men's room and I saw Hillary peeing standing up.

...and I gotta tell ya, she's well hung!"

6) (Clancy) - "Even Senator McCain has trouble swallowing his own bull$hit."

The Readers Choice Award this week went to DJ's winning entry. The next highest rated entry not among those selected above is:

(Baron Von Ottomatic) - "Dick Cheney finds McCain's lack of faith disturbing."

That's it for this weekend's contest. A new edition of the Wizbang Weekend Caption Contest™ will debut Friday morning.

It's a Star Wars reference.... (Below threshold)

It's a Star Wars reference.

Darth Vader uses his force choke on one of the Admirals in a meet while talking about the powers of the force.

His conversation is as follows:

General Tagge: What of the Rebellion? If the Rebels have obtained a complete technical reading of this station, it is possible, however unlikely, they might find a weakness and exploit it.

Darth Vader: The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands.

Admiral Motti: Any attack made by the Rebels against this station would be a useless gesture, no matter what technical data they have obtained. This station is now the ultimate power in the universe. I suggest we use it.
Darth Vader: Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Admiral Motti: Don't try to frighten us with your sorcerous ways, Lord Vader. Your sad devotion to that ancient religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you clairvoyance enough to find the rebels' hidden fortress...

[Vader makes a pinching motion and Motti starts choking]

Darth Vader: I find your lack of faith disturbing.

ahhhhhh-Thank YOu... (Below threshold)

ahhhhhh-Thank YOu

(that's pretty funny)... (Below threshold)

(that's pretty funny)
