Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week's Weekend Caption Contest™ was another great edition. So many good captions, so little room to honor them all... The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

US President Barack Obama with TV host Jay Leno during a taping of 'The Tonight Show' in Burbank, California. In his first appearance on a US late night talk show since his election as president, Obama made a joke about his bowling prowess that fell flat, and may have insulted disabled people.

Here are the winning entries:

1) (retired military) - Obama: "I thought it was quite appropriate to come on a late night comedy show to explain my plan to save America."

2) (Rodney Dill) - Leno: "No really... your teleprompter IS my next guest."

3) (iwogisdead) - "Jay, don't lean so far forward. I can't see the teleprompter screen."

4) (Jay Tea) - "We're also thinking of raising revenues by a windfall chin tax, Jay..."

5) (IowaRight) - "Jay, when we come back from the break, ask me about bowling - I have been working all day on a couple of zingers..."

6) (Al Pennam) - "Compared to your White House Transition, the special olympics looks like a MENSA rally."

The Readers Choice Award this week goes to another caption from retired military:

(retired military) - "A late night comic looks at one of the biggest jokes in history."

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

Rodney Dill is a great talent when it comes to comedy writing. He has submitted so many great entries to your photo caption contest here Kevin, as well as to mine on Wizbang Blue as well. This guy is really clever and funny. This guy is real good. He needs to go pro with comedy writing.
