HONORABLE MENTION

Stormy DragonFrom Saturday, photos of the big Wiener in Iowa.

PogueMahone – I’m told my husband is better at this than I am.

Michael Hamm – Still no comparison to what Obama has done to the country.

Scott O. – Excuse me while I ram this down my throat.

Maggie Mama – Regarding my capability to campaign successfully against Obama, don’t tell me I don’t know how to handle that prick.

Robert W. ArmijoAs disturbing as this photo is of Michele Bachmann biting down on a phallic symbol, it is nothing compared to the one of her licking the “Butter Cow”.

ℛODNEY’S BOTTOM OF THE BARREL

Next, I’ll drink your Milkshake.

It seems like an odd way to pray, but that corndog looks completely straight now.

There’s nothing like a good old fashioned Porndog at the Iowa State Fair

The Thursday Contest is letting the chips fall where they may.

Comments

  1. Woo hoo! Thanks for third Rodney.

  2. Jay Stevens says:

    The photos (of anyone) just proves that this is one more item on the list of things that no one should do in public.

  3. Ernieyeball says:

    This contest is obviously rigged. Whoever tabulates the results must be on the take from Personna, Reynolds and Austin.
    Probably paid off in Funnel Cakes.
    How these two “It cost $2.00 and it gives me gas.” and “It seems like an odd way to pray, but that corndog looks completely straight now.” got to be barrel dwellers is beyond me…they are gold!

    Personna and Reynolds almost never play, let alone place. Austin places often, but is one of the more prolific generators of captions.

    Thanks, I think they should’ve won as well. They’re my captions. Since I knowam the judge it probably wouldn’t be fair. I used to play this contest back when James ran it 7 years ago. The bottom of the barrel is usually just a mechanism for me to get my captions in.

  5. I’d focus on quality rather than quantity, but to be honest I never know exactly which captions you are going to find more worthy.

  6. Idiot says:

    You really think this was appropriate? Do it for Barney Frank.

    @Idiot:

    You really think this was appropriate?

    For a non-serious caption contest? Yes. For the photo along with a more serious discussion on the merits of the candidate, not so much.

    Do it for Barney Frank.

    Get me a picture of Barney Frank doing something similar (non-photoshopped) and I’ll use it. I have a similar picture of Obama with an ice cream cone in reserve, but I liked the cow picture better.

    @charles austin, Your quality is fine, and quantity is good as I never know what will determine which caption is funniest or most appropriate until I review the whole, either.

  8. john personna says:

    I actually thought it was inappropriate, but figured what the heck, if the photo is here I’ll give a late-night tv caption.

    Is it a context problem? Maybe this thread should be visible only after 11 pm 😉

  9. ernieyeball says:

    Good grief! This is the first and will be the last time I even click on the caption contest lest I am reckoned to be Dill’s toady!

    Now that I review my post on “Unfortunate Campaign Photo…” from Saturday, August 13, 2011 at 18:24 (Just saw a flash that our girl won the Ames Sausage Pole…er…Poll by a Link!) I gotta wonder…where do you get your material?
