  1. Jeron says:

    1 carrot, 20 candidates, 3000 staff, 4000 feet downhill, 500000 donations of $27 each. All for the thrill.

  2. Jenos Idanian says:

    Like Rodney explained I am in shock that some one can profit $8901 in four weeks just by running caption contests on the internet. I didn’t believe it until I saw the check to my father’s brother’s nephew’s cousin’s former roommate and their almost brand-new Trabant.

  3. Jenos Idanian says:

    Bernie Sanders delegates demonstrate their proposed system to choose the nominee at the convetion, which they say is fairer and more democratic than the “superdelegate” system.

  4. Jenos Idanian says:

    Shown above: Donald Trump supporters chased off a cliff by “peaceful, tolerant” liberal anti-Trump activists.

  5. Jenos Idanian says:

    “Hey, who cut the cheese loose?”

  6. Jenos Idanian says:

    Well, I was looking for an excuse to run down a cliff, and that one’s Gouda ’nuff for me!

  7. Jenos Idanian says:

    The Cheese Stands Alone… but not for long. No, not for long.

  8. Jenos Idanian says:

    Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’
    Though my legs are swollen,
    Keep them cheesewheels rollin’

  9. Jenos Idanian says:

    “Keep running! There’s a bunch of wine and crackers down at the bottom!”

  10. Tyrell says:

    “Reporting from the Iowa caucus”.

  11. Mu says:

    The Canadian border was overrun as soon as CNN called Florida and Pennsylvania for Trump.

  12. rodney dill says:

    Liberals fleeing south across the border into Mexico prior to President Trump making good on his border fence promise.

  13. OzarkHillbilly says:

    Donald Trump gives his acceptance speech to the Republican National Convention.

  14. JWh says:

    The Slippery Slope in action.

  15. rodney dill says:

    @JWh: It’s the socialist slide

  16. Hal_10000 says:

    The first segment of Donald Trump’s wall is completed.

  17. Franklin says:

    @JWh: Damn you, I came here to say something about gay marriage (or possibly transgender bathrooms) being a slippery slope.

  18. Franklin says:

    Sanders’ supporters were a little surprised at what it was like to be part of a “grassroots” campaign.

  19. Franklin says:

    After the Zika virus caused the cancellation of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, the city was awarded the 2018 Winter Olympics based on an entertaining exhibition in the downhill.

  20. Jc says:

    I have seen people run like that when someone cut the cheese, but never from rolling the cheese.

  21. DrDaveT says:

    Principled conservatives move to endorse Donald Trump with all deliberate speed.

  22. DrDaveT says:

    @Jenos Idanian:

    Shown above: Donald Trump supporters chased off a cliff by “peaceful, tolerant” liberal anti-Trump activists.

    Amazing — Jenos can manage to invoke the “look what you made me do!” defense even in a caption contest…

  23. Cory says:

    And thus begins the 2020 GOP Primary

  24. rodney dill says:

    Green Bay Packer fan training begins at Lambeau Field.

  25. Jenos Idanian says:

    The Wisconsin Democratic superdelegates, concerned about Hillary’s scandals, announce that they will hold a special competition between Clinton and Sanders supporters to win their support at the convention.

  26. Jenos Idanian says:

    @DrDaveT: Normally, I’d deploy a tactical “lighten up, Francis,” but I’ve been this mil-spec “oh, STFU” for a special occasion…

  27. Moosebreath says:

    I’ve had Cheese Bread, but never a Cheese Roll.

  28. Franklin says:

    @Jenos Idanian: As for you, I’m curious why the Trabant occurred to you for that joke.

  29. Paul Hooson says:

    Bad soccer game re-enactment?

  30. john430 says:

    Democrats will run after anything that’s labeled “free.”

    Illegals are making a run for the border on news that Trump has been elected.

  31. DrDaveT says:

    @Jenos Idanian:

    but I’ve been this mil-spec “oh, STFU” for a special occasion…

    Dontcha just hate it when you have a great comeback all saved up, and then you manage to leave out a key word when you actually deploy it?

    The wad is a piece of paper put in the muzzle along with the projectile and gun powder. If the shooter is too hasty — say in a tense battle — they may not include the projectile. The result is a fire without the intended bullet; only the wad will fly out…a wasted shot. Hence, “shooting your wad” can mean expending your energy fruitlessly.

    Trump’s Wall fails clinical test trials

  33. rodney dill says:

    Feather bowling got its start this way.

  34. Jenos Idanian says:

    @Franklin:As for you, I’m curious why the Trabant occurred to you for that joke.

    I’ve always thought that explaining a joke kills it, but since you asked…

    The comment spam I was lampooning usually involves a McLaren F1 or some other extremely exotic and expensive car, so I wanted to go to the other extreme. I was torn between a Trabant and a Yugo, and figured the Trabant would be more humorous. Also, since both companies are defunct, I had to make it “almost brand-new.”

    Maybe I should have gone with the Yugo, or maybe a Gremlin or a Pinto, but for some reason the Trabant just seemed the funniest to me. YMMV, of course.

  35. Jenos Idanian says:

    @Franklin: OK, I’ll confess the REAL reason. Yes, I was torn between the Trabbi and the Yugo, so I decided to “play the ref.” Rodney is the judge here, and he’s been a part of the auto industry for some time (it says so in his bio). The Yugo and the Trabbi have equally horrid reps for quality, but the Yugo is far more well known. I was playing to his vanity by going for the more obscure reference, one that I was fairly comfortable he’d catch and appreciate.

    “Know your audience.” Also known as “pandering.”

    Note also that DrDaveT doesn’t seem to realize that this is a joke thread, and wants to score political points and get into political arguments here. He doesn’t know his audience here.

  36. DrDaveT says:

    @Jenos Idanian:

    Note also that DrDaveT doesn’t seem to realize that this is a joke thread

    On the contrary — I’m getting triple value here. The usual joke thread, plus Jenos making Freudian slips while trying to be funny, plus Jenos trying to riposte. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

  37. Dazedandconfused says:

    A herd of Trumpeters encounter a cliff.

  38. Jenos Idanian says:

    @DrDaveT: Freudian slip? You mean “when you mean to say one thing, but you say your mother?”

    Sorry, every comment I’ve made here was deliberate and intentional and thought-out. Maybe not thought out very well or for very long, but intentional.

    Here, let me offer some more entries, just to drag this back on topic:

    “DrDaveT, in the lead, almost catches the cheese… just before he loses his dignity.”

    “Winning the rat race and getting the cheese is nice, but you’re still a rat. Just ask DrDaveT.”

    “DrDaveT found it much easier to focus on catching the cheese when he named it ‘Jenos.’ He still fell on his ass, but he really did get close this time.”

    “No, no, DrDaveT! He said ‘get a clue,’ not ‘get a cheese!'”

  39. Franklin says:

    @Jenos Idanian: Great choice, obscure enough that I barely knew it. Like Rodney and almost everybody else in SE Michigan, I am also connected to the auto industry.

  40. Franklin says:

    Hillary falls down and breaks her crown, and Bill comes tumbling after.

  41. DrDaveT says:

    @Jenos Idanian:

    Sorry, every comment I’ve made here was deliberate and intentional and thought-out.

    Exactly. It’s even better when you don’t realize, even in hindsight, what you’re saying about yourself.

  42. Paul Hooson says:

    The guy on the end claims that was once in business with Marcel Marceau. Claims he brought him in as a silent partner…

  43. Paul Hooson says:


  44. Paul Hooson says:

    What if Cecil B. Demille directed AMERICA’S FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS?

  45. Paul Hooson says:

    The worst Easter egg hunt ever…

  46. Paul Hooson says:

    The last remaining fans of UNDER THE DOME appear to be as disorganized as was the show in it’s final season…

  47. Paul Hooson says:

    Outraged TV fans wonder why Xfinity cannot broadcast a stable and strong signal on a clear, excellent weather, 90 degree temperature day…

  48. Paul Hooson says:

    Open tryouts for that “Help, I’ve fallen And Cannot Get Up” ad…

  49. Paul Hooson says:

    “Hey, I heard that Marilyn Chambers ran for vice president twice in 2004 and 2008 on a Libertarian third party ticket. I wonder who they’ll select this year?”.

    “Johnnie Keyes?”.

  50. Jenos Idanian says:

    @DrDaveT: Dude, I understand that you think your way to acceptance by The Kool Kids around here is by taking me on (it’s a common tactic, but for some reason never actually achieves the goal), but couldn’t you leave Rodney’s fun thread alone? Or do you just have this overwhelming need to crap on the carpet?

  51. rodney dill says:

    Do not taunt happy fun cheese wheel.

  52. Resent press releases dispatched from across the pond, royal proof as to the reason of why the heatedly contested presidential campaign between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is enough to restore British rule over the American colonists again.

  53. Wait a minute. I smell something. Yeah, asshole, it’s who cut the cheese.

  54. Paul Hooson says:

    “Damn kids. They drink a bottle of WOOLITE and go crazy these days…”.

  55. Jenos Idanian says:

    “Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much gas I make a year? I mean, even if I told you, you wouldn’t believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work? A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up. Disappears! It ceases to exist without me. No, you clearly don’t know who you’re talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets gassed and you think that of me? No. I am the one who cuts the cheese!”

  56. Recent press releases dispatched from across the pond, proof royal as to the reason why the highly contested presidential campaign between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is still not enough to restore British rule over the American colonists.

  57. Paul Hooson says:

    Apparently, the sequel to THE SHINING, LOOK THE SHINY, is not very good…

  58. Franklin says:

    Have a nice trip! See you next fall!
