Caption Contest Winners -- All Of Us!

What a great caption contest we had this weekend! Even on the new abbreviated schedule, we had 91 fantastic entries ... close to a record here at CQ. Bill from INDC Journal has finished judging all of your suggestions -- and speaking of judging, even Uncle Saddy pointed out a couple of excellent captions:

All your caption belong to us!

Here are the winners:

Captain's Award (Have We Heard This Somewhere Before?) -- Kris:

"We're going to invade Iran... and Kuwait... and Syria... and Saudi
Arabia... and then we're going to Israel to take back the Holy Land...

You Have The Conn #1 (Off His ZZ Top) -- Thief:

"They come a-runnin' just as fast as they can,
Baby go crazy 'bout a Sharp Dressed Man!"

You Have The Conn #2 (Like No Business I Know) -- Retired Military:

"What do you have to say to the charges levied against you Mr. Hussein?"

"That's SHOWBIZ!!!!"

You Have The Conn #3 (I Didn't Get My Bread) -- Mango:

"No WMD for you! Come Back! One Year!"

Jack Nicholson Special Villain Award (Put It Between Your Knees) -- Villain:


Report To Sick Bay (I Don't Care What You Say, This Is My Life) -- JBlake:

I did it simply...because...I...could. And really was a short

But more than these fine entries, the readers of CQ, INDC Journal, and the Eggers family are the big winners. We started out Friday morning with a donation total of just under $2800. When Bill looked Sunday evening, the donations had totalled up to more than $4,000, with checks and pledges not counted in that total. You guys are simply the best blogger readership on the Internet. Let's keep it going -- that tip jar is still open, and the Eggers family needs to know that Americans care about them.

Thanks to everyone who entered, and congratulations to the winners! Remember, here 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 Bill's intellect and/or 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.

You should also check out this poem by I Love Jet Noise, which claims bragging rights over the Caption Contests so far this year. It's actually just a bit ... scary!
