Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week's Weekend Caption Contest™ was another smash hit, plowing fertile Obama territory. The assignment this weekend was to caption the following picture:

In an image made from a video provided by Al-Arabiya, President Barack Obama is interviewed in Washington by Dubai-based Al-Arabiya cable network Monday Jan. 26, 2009. It was the Obama's first formal television interview as president given to an Arabic cable TV network. (AP Photo/Al-Arabiya)

Here are the winning entries:

1) (Rodney Dill) - "The number of The Beast?... Uh... Hillary asked me not to give out her cell number."

2) (retired military) - "Yes I plan to do more interviews with Al Jazeera than with Fox News. The questions are much easier."

3) (fustian) - "It was quite a setback for Obama's policy of reaching out to Muslims when White House translators realized the text on the upper right part of the screen says 'Zionist Tool.'"

4) (Red Five) - "I always thought that Obama's policy statements would make better sense in the original Arabic..."

5) (Spike) - "Would you like to sit on my lap like your American colleagues at MSNBC?"

6) (DJ Drummond) - "But .. Jimmy said that if we surrendered you would be our friends!"

The Readers Choice Award this week goes to:

(smitch) - "President Obama grapples to explain his stimulus bill to his Muslim friends without saying 'Pork.'"

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