Caption Contest #7 Winners!

The judge has spoken -- and the judge in this case is none other than Jon from QandO, a fantastic blog that should be on your daily-read list (after Captain's Quarters, of course!). Today, together with Jon's partner McQ, they've posted a review of the Arab press reaction to the Madrid bombings, the real status of the deficit, and especially the new effort to bring Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy to the big screen.

In short, QandO is like Alice's Restaurant -- you can find anything you want.

Jon was kind enough to provide this picture for our Caption Contest ...

... and now he's selected this week's winners! Here they are:

Captain's Award (Sailor Moon) -- Spd Rdr:

Now pay attention, children. This is a voting booth. VO-ting boooo-the. On election day, you little guys go to the table marked "DEM" and the nice lady will let you go into the booth. Pull the "blue" lever. Got that? Pull the the BLUE lever.
Don't touch the red lever or your mommy will die.

You Have The Conn #1 (Peter Rabbit) -- CCWBass (2 submissions):

But then Fiver, displaying a remarkable sense of nuance, asked, "How do you ask a rabbit to be the last rabbit to die for this warren?" [bonus points for Watership Down reference!]

Why, just the other day, as I anticipated yet another photo-op here amongst my urban constituency, I felt the need to become more in touch with my voting block so I popped my favorite Kid N' Play shizznit into the CD player and was stunned, stunned I tell you, at the intensity and the anger and the powerful social commentary of this important social poetry. Word, children. Word, indeed.

You Have The Conn #2 (Tickle Me Elmo) -- RWN:

(boy in right foreground) "Cut the crap, John, show us the center-fold like uncle Bill did for his class!"

You Have The Conn #3 (Barney) -- Chris B:

Shooting began today for the pilot episode of CBS' new series, "Ms. King & The Scarecrow". Senators Clinton and Kerry play two 'retropsychics' with complete clairvoyance in hindsight. While using their powers to fight a vast right-wing conspiracy, their professional respect ignites into passionate ambition. CBS says regular production of the series will begin in early November when the cast is free of 'outstanding obligations'.

Report To The Nurse's Office (Pee Wee Herman) -- JBlake:

Hillary: Don't look at me! I saw you tilt!
J F'ing K: ...and this boys and girls is a freedom fighter on his way to see 72 vir.... er...nevermind....

I have to say that picking winners gets tougher every darned week -- and this week, there were a ton that I thought were terrific. (Now you know why I like guest judges!) Comments on this post will remain open, as usual, in order for the winners to gloat, the others to disparage Jon's intellect and my parentage, and for any other entries submitted just for the sheer enjoyment of amazing your friends and confounding your enemies.

Next contest will be on Friday, with guest judge Gerbera Tetra!
