Caption Contest #10 Winners!

Sorry for the delay -- I hadn't realized that it was the Captain's serve! It's time to announce the winners of this week's Captain's Caption Contest, and our guest judges this week are Dr. Kate and Farmer Joe from Urban Farmhouse, a terrific new blog -- be sure to check it out. Just to jog your memory (another Forrest Gump reference?), here's the picture:

Ping-Pong, Flip-Flop

Here are the winners!

Captain's Award (Box of Chocolates) -- Shark:

"Look at me! I'm playing poor man's squash!"

You Have The Conn #1 (Floating Feather) -- Spd Rdr:

With a subtle grace not seen since the Ford Administration, Senator Kerry gently nuances the ball over the net.

You Have The Conn #2 (We're Not Relations, Sir) -- Chris B:

"No, in Press-Ping-Ping you toss softies to me and stand there motionless as I score off you."

You Have The Conn #3 (Sorry, Jenny) -- Attila:

John Kerry, showing he can have as much fun as the next guy after a few beers, plays ping-pong in his pajamas.

Report To Sick Bay, On The Double (Your Mama REALLY Cares About Your Education, Boy) -- Elizabeth S:

If only MY balls were that big!!!!!!!!!

And now, for a couple of extra awards ---

Best Gump Reference (Bubba Was My Friend) -- Rick:

Not unlike Forest Gump, I also learned the art of ping-pong during my tenure in Vietnam...

Best Musical Reference (Gump, You're A *&$%$# Genius!) -- Purple Raider:

"They Call him Kerry, Kerry, faster than ketchup.
No one you see is nuanced as he
And we know Kerry Votes for a bill then against it
Getting the praise from Uncle Teddy.

Everyone loves the Vietnam Vet
Ever so brave and fearless is he
Medals he won sent over the fence
Then displayed for all to see

They call him Kerry, Kerry taxing the rich folks
No one you see is fairer than he
And we know Kerry Kerry lives in five mansions
Him and Teresa and his dog VC"

With no apologies to those miserable wretches who thought up that miserable flipper show in the first place.


Thanks to everyone who entered, and congratulations to the winners! Remember, her at CQ, everyone's a winner -- just some of us have higher winning percentages than others. Comments on this post will remain open, as usual, in order for the winners to gloat, the others to disparage Kate and Joe's intellect and my parentage, and for any other entries submitted just for the sheer enjoyment of amazing your friends and confounding your enemies.

Send me a photograph or an e-mail with a link to a great picture you think should be the subject of our next Caption Contest, and let me know if you'd like to be the guest judge! I'll have another picture for Friday -- so be sure to come back then for the next contest.
