Captain's Caption Contest Winners!

Once again, we have picked the winners of the Captain's Caption Contest, and once again, it was a lot tougher than Kerry looks with his little flower ornamentation:

Here then are the most notable posts. Just remember, there are no losers -- heck, even Kerry looks happy! However, I suppose looks can be deceiving, as a number of you picked a similar theme for your entries ...

Captain's Award -- Ted:

And after the sunuvabitch knocked me down I took the flower away as revenge, and hung it from my belt like a scalp!

Meanest girl scout I've ever seen...

You Have the Conn, You SOB #1 -- Flipper:

So then that son-of-a-bitch Dean pushed me out of the plane, right over San Francisco! On the bright side, I think I earned a few votes while I was there.

You Have the Conn, You SOB #2 -- Pat Curley:

Daisy? What daisy? Oh, that son-of-a-bitch Secret Service agent hosed me again!

You Have the Conn, You SOB #3 -- Jim S:

John Kerry attributed the strong March jobs report to the hiring of 308,000 temporary workers to make yellow plastic flowers.

Report to Sick Bay, You SOB (On the Double) -- James:

Well, Bill called and said that the mistletoe was a little tacky, so I thought.....

Captain's Sailing Song Special Award -- Purple Raider:

(to the tune of Eve of Destruction):

My leathery face, it is expanding
Wrinkles flaring, Botox fading
I need another treatment, but not from Dean,
I don't believe my hair, the hair weave's looking mean,
And Denny K's tin hat is Looking Green,
And I'll tell you over and over and over again my friend,
Ah you don't believe that I'm a Nam Vet.

As usual, the comments will remain open on this post to dispute the final selections, disparage the judge (moi), or post new entries to impress your friends and strike fear in the hearts of your enemies. The next contest will be posted on Friday, and we'll have Bill from INDC Journal, a good new blog, as our guest judge. Remember, if you want to guest judge, drop me an e-mail and find a good picture for the contest.

UPDATE: Hey, I get to be a guest judge now! Be sure to see Bill's caption contest going on at INDC Journal and get your entries in. (I wish I'd seen this picture first! Arrrrr ...)

UPDATE II: Welcome to all Hugh Hewitt readers! A new caption contest starts every Friday, and so far John Kerry keeps providing us plenty of material ...
