  1. Rodney Dill says:

    I should’ve won. I was robbed. I demand a recount, Let’s have every vote count. The contest was fixed. Where in the hell is the SCOFLA (Supreme Court of Fla.)

    (Heh, my post would’ve made a pretty caption as well)

  2. Dear God, the older Gore gets, the more likely Stephen Root (Milton from Office Space, among other roles) is to play him in his post-VP years.

    [Gore with a Milton voice] “Has … anybody … seen my gravitas?”

  3. Boyd says:

    Wow! I’m humbled that your liked my caption so much, especially since there were so many absolutely great ones.

    Thanks. I’ll fire off that check immediately.
