Guest judge Jon from QandO -- a smart and informative blog that should be on your daily reading list (like you need me to tell you that) -- has made the final decisions in this week's Captain's Caption Contest. Just to refresh your memory, in case you can't scroll down three posts, here's the picture:
Here's Jon's picks, in his own format ...
After a lengthy review, we have a 44 way tie for "You Sick Bastard". My god, people, go call your mother and apologize. Immediately.

Runner-up #3 (or: The "topical, pithy, amusing....you're Jay Leno!" award)
"Actually, I pulled her away from the bus before I pushed her under it."

Report to Sick Bay Immediately (or, The "I am simply shocked that you would reopen the wounds of Vietnam for Caption Contest gain" Award)
Kerry to reporters: "So I was sneaking up on the little VC bastard, just like this and ..."
