The Winners

First: Roger – Mr. CarlsonHerb Tarlick: We wanted to give free hams as part of the newest WKRP promotion and we took a bunch of pigs up in the hot air balloon but, God as my witness, I really thought pigs could fly.

Second: Mark Hasty – The US Army unveiled its newest counter-terrorist weapon today, the semi-guided pork bomb. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld proclaimed that radical Islamists would find it “”both devilishly effective and sinfully delicious.—

Third: Chrees – The X Prize drew a diverse list of applicants hoping to win the $10 million reward…

Thanks to all the participants, but that’s not all this contest had a large number of funny captions, so I have to recognize a few more.

Honorable Mention:

Lasting Magic – “Today in the news, Babe is putting a face on a constitutional amendment to allow natural born and foreign-born pigs to become president.â€
keith taylor – You know why the spectators are carrying umbrellas? Once farm animals learned to fly, rain was the least of our worries.
Kate – James Carville on Meet The Press Nov.18, 2008

Rodney’s bottom of the barrel

In the end only John Madden got the call right that the play was not reviewable.

Another Contest will be coming soon.

UPDATE: McGehee gets an assist on the name change for First Place. and Denise offers this clarification (with one minor edit):
Les was reporting from the scene: “Oh, the humanity! The pigsturkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement! Not since the Hindenberg tragedy has there been anything like this!â€

    Hey, my first honorable mention. I’d like to thank my family… my friends… God etc. etc.

  2. Roger says:

    Thanks everyone for the clarifications. That was probably one of the best episodes of WKRP. If not number one, at least in the top three. The only other one I can think of was when they sponsored a concert featuring the punk band, “Scum of the Earth.”

    And kudos to everyone else for their captions. This was probably the funniest bunch I’ve read thus far.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    So I was right — your choice of picture was a comment on my chances of winning yet another caption contest!

    Curse you!!!
