  1. OzarkHillbilly says:

    Iranian scientists prepare to test their latest rockets payload capacity with one big ass rock.

  2. OzarkHillbilly says:

    And seeing as the OTB Caption Contest is to make people laugh, I feel the need to pass this totally off topic post along:

    Cops: Pa. Guard Shot Finger Trying to Remove Wedding Ring During Fight

    Personally, I always found dish soap to be quite effective.

  3. rodney dill says:

    @OzarkHillbilly: Especially this part.

    The gunshot badly mangled Malespini’s finger, but didn’t remove the ring, police said.

  4. OzarkHillbilly says:

    @rodney dill: Yeah, but he just hates her so much,

  5. JKB says:

    Here three indiscriminate killers prepare to murder innocent women and children

  6. Mikey says:

    It’s not a question of where it grips it, it’s a simple question of weight ratios. A five-pound rocket is NOT going to carry a 50-pound rock!

  7. Tony W says:

    Hey Aziz, forget the wiring, I can never figure that stuff out either Grab that board over there and let’s just launch it with this big rock!

  8. “Of course this will work. I read it on the Internet!”

  9. markm says:

    Obama: “Sequestration cuts will not only cause the elderly to form street gangs to steal cat food for their survival…….but…..we will have to subcontract Hamas to get bottled water to the International Space Station…..”

  10. markm says:

    “Hey Adad, this fourth of July sh*t is pretty bitchin’ whicked eh?”

  11. Hal 10000 says:

    The Russian space program has fallen a long way from its zenith.

  12. Okay, so where do I put the pumpkin?

  13. He who must not be named says:

    Rocket? I thought you said rock it.

  14. rodney dill says:

    Hafeez was beheaded right after the utterance, “Hey those wires aren’t insulated… is that Kosher?”

  15. Ahmed’s heart froze as the fuze ignited just before he read the fateful words, “Acme Rocket Co., endorsed by W.E. Coyote.”

  16. OzarkHillbilly says:

    “If this works…. WooHooo! 72 virgins here I come!!!”

  17. PJ says:

    @JKB:

    Here three indiscriminate killers prepare to murder innocent women and children

    So, how much is Assad paying you for writing your comments?

    Free Syrian Army fighters prepare a homemade missile before they launch it towards the military airport in north Aleppo December 23, 2012

  18. OzarkHillbilly says:

    @Donald Sensing: “Meepmeep!”

  19. Michael Hamm says:

    Hey – I got this giant flint rock. Maybe that will help it ignite.

  20. 11B40 says:

    Greetings:

    Religion of Peace members prepare to send their latest peace proposal to the Israelis.

  21. PJ says:

    @11B40:
    Assad is paying you too?

  22. JKB says:

    @PJ:

    Do we know that is true? Reuters’ photos have been shown to have been manipulated, staged or otherwise not what they represent before?

    Are their civilian populations within the impact zone of the rocket should it fail to fly to its intended target?

  23. JKB says:

    It was learned that naming the rocket Trebuchet confused some users.

  24. rodney dill says:

    Meanwhile back in Dearborn, MI — “Of course it’s OK, Earl… just what part of ‘Shall not be infringed‘ don’t you understand?”

  25. OzarkHillbilly says:

    @JKB:

    Do we know that is true?

    This is about making fun of people…. others or ourselves. If you can not do one or the other….

    Don’t bother.

    (personally, I think my best has been directed at myself. Others may disagree.)

  26. OzarkHillbilly says:

    @OzarkHillbilly:

    This is about making fun of people….

    This POST is about making fun of people….

    just in case I wasn’t clear.

  27. Drew says:

    Some assembly required my ass……

  28. Drew says:

    Aziz, chill, its just a line from a Rolling Stones tune: “between a rocket and a hard place………..”

  29. Crusty Dem says:

    World’s fastest falafel delivery system beta-testing demonstrates some need for refining.

  30. Jc says:

    Syriaously?

  31. Jc says:

    “Here I am! Getting a rock, to a rocket again!” (Spoken with middle eastern Klaus Mein accent)

  32. Patrick McCain says:

    In stone age warfare, Fred “Twinkletoes” Flintstone joins the assault on Mr. Slate.

  33. Patrick McCain says:

    Although rock beat paper and scissors, Ahmed quickly learned that you don’t want rock.

  34. rodney dill says:

    @Crusty Dem: Al Gore endorses world wide falafel delivery, but is dead set against Global Shwarma-ing

  35. The plan is after we fire on The Gorn with our homemade gunpowder, Captain Kirk finishes him off with the rock. Got it?

  36. He who must not be named says:

    Meanwhile, back in in Dothan, AL, al-Sisyphus says, “hold my rock and watch this.”

    As Majority Leader Reid noted, the training cuts caused by the sequester have had devastating effects on the military.

  37. He who must not be named says:

    That thing got a hemi?

  38. He who must not be named says:

    Abdul Garp notes that a previous rocket attempt had exploded on this exact spot, so what are the odds of that happening again?

  39. He who must not be named says:

    To the moon al-ice.

  40. He who must not be named says:

    Sprinkle the silver fulminate there and I’ll drop this rock on it to ignite the rocket.

  41. Although the Free Syrian Army’s homemade rocket’s guidance system was surpassingly accurate, its flintlock ignition mechanism left much to be desired.

  42. He who must not be named says:

    God-dard it!

  43. He who must not be named says:

    Damascus, we have a problem.

  44. He who must not be named says:

    I looked all over this thing for some moss, but no luck. You’re just going to have to light it without any kindling,

  45. He who must not be named says:

    Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.

  46. He who must not be named says:

    On my signal, unleash the hellfire missile.
