Holiday Caption Contest Winners

Obviously there were the good, the bad and the ugly associated with this pic:

But the winners are:

First Place: sortapundit — Meeting your new girlfriend’s parents is always an awkward experience – but, thought Jamal, this was the worst.

Second Place: Rodney Dill — It’s a little underdone, better remember to throw another cross on the fire next time.

Third Place: David R. Darrow — Honey, even your cooking is supreme!

Creepy and distrubing:

Kate — Mom?!?

South Park reference appreciated:

Mark Hasty — We’d better rethink that genetical engineerin’ stuff . . . maybe them scientists could come up with an all-white turkey.


Myopist — Damn. After seeing sortapundit’s entry, I’m not going to even try.

    Honourable mention to second place to top dog in the space of two weeks. Well I’m just slapping you bitches to the ground, aren’t I?

  3. Pile On® says:

    Oh dear, I see the fame and fortune of caption prowess has claimed another victim. Sortapundit, I see booze, drugs, groupies, hangers on, wild sex parties, over-doses and stomach pumps on your joy ride to rock bottom. Enjoy the ride, and remember, rehab is for quitters.

  4. Ralph Gizzip says:

    I swear to God that looks like Rob’t Byrd Jr. and his wife.

  5. McGehee says:

    Pile On®, I never got any of those things when I was on my way down. All I got was a dang fruit basket that had been sitting in the back room for three weeks. Fuzzy green oranges! Yum!

    I demand my booze, drugs, groupies, hangers on, wild sex parties, over-doses and stomach pumps!

    Well okay, I guess the stomach pump isn’t absolutely necessary, but if I don’t get the groupies and wild sex parties, somebody’s going to hear from my “people.”

  6. Rodney Dill says:

    McGehee, Oh you got the fruit basket? must’ve been some sort of mistake.

  7. Rodney Dill says:

    …And Thank you for the recognition, I forgot my manners for a moment when I saw I had an opportunity to take a jab at McGehee.
