Caption Contest Winners!

What a great weekend! CQ readers entered what I think was a record number of captions for the weekend contest, and Pat at Dr. Sanity had quite a job trying to pick the few, the proud, and the very clean winners. Even John Kerry had to plumb the depths of CQ in order to get through all the entries:

Getting Clean For Gene?

Pat's winners are as follows:

Captain's Award (Man On A Mission?) - Mike G:

"I am John Kerry, reporting for duty!"

You Have The Conn #1 (The Populist Award) - Jim S:

Okay, I'm ready to meet with the common folk now.

You Have The Conn #2 (Politics Begins At Conception) - Rightwingduck:

This sperm has a one in million chance of becoming a human being.

You Have The Conn #3 (Nuance And Courage Twin Award) - Charles Austin:

(both are by charles austin, so I counted them as one)

I was for these pictures before I was against them.

Senator Kerry emerges from his well-disclosed location.

Report To Sick Bay (Best Recycled Klingon Joke) - JBlake:

Presidential hopeful John Kerry stopped by Cape Canaveral on the way to the Democrat convention this week. After enjoying the thrilling new NASA Colonoscopy ride, he exclaimed, "I love space exploration. And when I am president, I will fully fund NASA. My new tax plan will fly right past the moon straight to Uranus."

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 Pat'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.

As I mentioned this weekend, your donations continue to flow into the tipjars set up to help me defray the costs of attending the Republican National Convention, and they are much appreciated. You raised about $150 this past weekend, pushing the total to about one-third of the travel expenses for the trip. I'm extremely grateful, and I hope to give everyone their money's worth when I'm at Madison Square Garden for the show. The tipjars will remain on the left sidebar until the convention.

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.
