  1. Matthew says:

    Inspired by a special White House screening of the X-Men sequel, President Bush invokes his psychic powers of remote viewing to reveal the secret location of Iraq’s WMD to a amazed Washington press corpse.

  2. Matthew says:


    Helen Thomas may be dead, but I meant to type press corps, damn it.

  3. Misanthroyst says:

    I vote for the press corpse…

  4. Steven says:

    And now I will do my Carnak the Great routine. Too bad I lost my hat.

  5. Kevin Drum says:

    “I’m thinking of a number between 1 and 3…”

  6. Katewerk says:

    Hillary adjusts the latex mask, as she and Bill
    rehearse Backup Plan #46 to retake the White House.


  7. Come to Butthead.

  8. Jay Solo says:

    For the last time, I am NOT stupid!

  9. Rodney Dill says:

    “If I ever find out who left the super glue open, I’m giving them a one way ticket to Iraq!”

  10. Rodney Dill says:

    (“Wow…If I push hard enough here…Helen Thomas begins to look just like Rumsfeld”)

  11. Rodney Dill says:

    Help me! Help me! I been Hypnotized!

  12. Rodney Dill says:


    “OK, then 10 is ‘Don’t Mess with Texas’”
    “Then 9 is ‘Michael Moore falls on Maureen Dowd.’”
    “Let’s see that makes the next 2 easy.”
    “Number 8 ‘Michael Moore falls on bin Laden or that Rodham gal if bin Laden’s already Texas toast’”
    “Number 7 ‘Michael Moore falls on Saddam’”
    “That guy has plenty enough cheek to go around”
    “OK, then 6 is ‘Don’t Mess with Texas’”
    “Wait a minute I think I already used that one, better throw it in again for good measure, heh”.
    “Number 5 is ‘That Axis of Evil thing really takes off’”
    “Number 4 is ‘I get to do the landing the next time on the aircraft carrier’”
    “OK, then they start to get really good from here on in.
    “Three is ‘The NYT proclaims President Bush the best strategury president ever!’”
    “Two is ‘Nuther tax cut for the rich’”
    “This next one’s the best, heh”
    “Numero Uno, ‘President Bush, Commissioner of Baseball.’”
    “Oops I forgot to add that Michael Moore is attacked by a nest of them there vicious wiener dogs, Dammit, that makes eleven or twelve.”

  13. Katewerk says:

    4 entries, Rodney?

    I think the first one should be free, and subsequent attempts should require a contribution to the tip jar.

    ‘Course, I think James should be giving prizes, too. Nice ones. Cars.

  14. James Joyner says:

    Heh. I’ll tell you what, Kate: Starting tonight, I’ll take all the profits from the tip jar, discounting only for my hosting costs, and spend half of it on prizes.

  15. Norbizness says:

    Try as he might, President Bush is unable to levitate Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham. Because he’s a fat fucker.

  16. Katewerk says:

    “Heh. I’ll tell you what, Kate: Starting tonight, I’ll take all the profits from the tip jar, discounting only for my hosting costs, and spend half of it on prizes.”

    I’m thinking that, if I keep working at this caption contest thing, I’ can expect the first in a series of McDonalds Finding Nemo Happy Meal Toys.


  17. James Joyner says:

    Oh, like I could afford that.

  18. Rodney Dill says:

    Anything worth doing is worth overdoing. I usually average 3-4 entries on a good picture, not that I’ve had a great amount of success zeroing in on James’ sense of humor.

    PS Thanks for the car James, that was a great prize for the Armstrong caption.

  19. Dougal says:

    “Oooh, have you ever eaten ice cream too fast, and gotten that headache? Ow! Ow!”

  20. Timmer says:

    What part of “We’re goin’ to hunt these guys until they’re gone do you NOT understand?”
