  1. Bithead says:

    * You’ve seen “Alien”, right?

    * Jeeez; That “Night Train” IS a mean wine.

    * What kind of elephant gun do I use with THIS one?

    * I told him to forget about it but he can’t.

    * You KNOW it’s illegal to walk your elephant without a leash! This is Wisconsin, after all!

    * Dear Mr. Darwin;

    * It’s one of the four elephants of the apocalypse!

    * In this scene, the natives take part in their annual celebration of Hannibal Day.

    * That pink elephant followed me home AGAIN!

    * Who knew elephants had boobs?

    * Some guys in the singles bars can never get dates.

    * Oprah’s put on weight again?

    * Yeah, I know… but curried elephant?

    * The Democratic Nominee that year did have the advantage of instant recognition.

  2. Bithead says:

    Scratch the last one, replace it with: THe Republican nominee.

    A serious case of WBC. (Writing before Coffee)

    The CDC is warning about toxic floodwater metamorphosis in New Orleans.

  5. Michael Moore goes native while filming his documentary on the offshoring of American jobs.

  6. The conservative movement currently sweeping the country is truly a worldwide movement.

  7. Fersboo says:

    John McCain presses the flesh.

  8. Rick DeMent says:

    Man, if someone was making light of Christian religious symbols, the Bill O’Reilly set would be hyperventilating. I guess it’s only in poor taste to make fun of the dominant religion of your own culture.

  9. Anderson says:

    President Bush’s nomination of Ganesh to the Supreme Court, while threatening to alienate his religious-conservative base, presents an almost insoluble problem for his Democrat opponents, who cannot afford to be seen as opposing the first-ever Hindu deity to sit on the high Court.

  10. McGehee says:

    Rick DeMent makes an unexpected and pointless cameo appearance in a Caption Contest thread.

    (and yes, that is a caption submission)

  11. Rodney Dill says:


    One only needs to tour the vast archive of OTB caption contests to find numerous moronic contests ridiculing, the pope, jews, islam, Buddha, etc.. If I’ve left anyone out ley me know I’m open to suggestions for future contests.

    Karl Rove returns to the acclaim of classmates at
    his college reunion.

    Katrina Explained! New photo shows Louisiana’s Democratic Machine in action… all four hands out!

  14. Sigotter says:

    Symbol of the “Republican Mandate”!

  15. Kenny says:

    If only Brownie had this many hands tied behind his back in the early days at New Orleans.

  16. Phil Smith says:

    “Ganesh???? I thought you said we were going to a Ganja festival!!

  17. The Man says:

    I tried to make it to the Ganesh festival, but I couldn’t afford a bus ticket.

  18. The Man says:

    Rick DeMent can be seen in the background, talking on his cell phone wearing his “05” jersey.

  19. “I am Homer Simpson!”

  20. T. Harris says:

    Blessed with four hands and rightly hailed for years as the world’s greatest goalie, Siddharth “Elephant-Head” Singh rides triumphant on the shoulders of his teammates. Singh’s 1,468th consecutive shutout preserved the 1-0 victory over arch rival Punjab.

  21. T. Harris says:

    Rick who?

  22. Brett says:

    Orange, the new brown. If you’re Ganesh, that is.

  23. Khepri says:

    “Confused Hindus react to the widespread looting in New Orleans”

    “India parades it’s first nuclear weapon”

  24. Lasting Magic says:

    At her TV tirade and parade, Celine Dion changed Blame Canada to Blame Barbara.

  25. Sgt Fluffy says:

    Dreams that keep James Carville up at night.

  26. Baron says:

    Ganesh, pictured here before the ACLU sued to have the halo removed and bosom covered. In the alternative, the ACLU complaint recommends replacing the image with that of a donkey, in their view the only non-offensive religious symbol.

  27. Skillzy says:

    University of Alabama boosters prepare their ancient ceremonial “altar of coaching sacrifice” in anticipation of Mike Shula’s last season as head coach. Tide fans hold a strong belief that if they terminate enough coaches, one day “Big Al” will send their savior, the reincarnation of Paul “Bear” Bryant, who has now been dead for over 20 years.

  28. OJ says:

    In an effort to expand on their buddhist temple successes in the 90s, the Hillary 2008 fundraising campaign reveals their South Asia mascot – Grabbing Hands.

  29. Hermoine says:

    The Republican Party adopted a more fly elephant for the Hurricane Katrina Survivor Rave in Houston.

  30. Mr. Right says:

    …And if you look closely at this elephant’s lower right hand, you will see irrefutable proof that all Republicans are, indeed, Nazis!

  31. Mr. Right says:

    PUBLIC SERVICE MESSAGE: For those of you not up to speed on Hindu symbols, please read this rather than misunderstanding the symbol’s actual meaning in this context. Thank you.

  32. Adjustah says:

    *gulp* “I swear she was hot last night!”

  33. In an effort to bring undecided Hindu voters into the fold, The RNC reveals their new mascot: Rupesh the Great.
