Caption Contest Winners!

Did anyone know that John Kerry is an exercise fanatic? He's a runner. He runs for the Presidency, he runs away from his Senate record, he runs away from his anti-war activities, he runs in circles on policy ... no wonder the man is a lean, mean, (non)fighting machine!

Gerry from Daly Thoughts guest-judged your entries in this week's Captain's Caption Contest, and boy, did he ever have a tough job -- 195 entries came in, almost a CQ record! After much thought and a few bribes, Gerry has the winners:

Captain's Award (The Perfect Record) - Swede:

And here comes the challenger now, Bob, with a record of no wins, no losses, and one hundred and thirty-seven no decisions.

You Have The Conn #1 (It Explains His Senate Election) - Kenny:

That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road. And when I got there, I thought maybe I'd run to the end of town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I'd just run across Plymouth County. And I figured, since I run this far, maybe I'd just run across the great state of Massachusetts. And that's what I did. I ran clear across Massachusetts. For no particular reason I just kept on going. I ran clear to the ocean. And when I got there, I figured, since I'd gone this far, I might as well turn around, just keep on going. When I got to another ocean, I figured, since I'd gone this far, I might as well just turn back, keep right on going. When I got tired, I slept. When I got hungry, I ate. When I had to go... you know... I went.

You Have The Conn #2 (Hi-Yooooh!) -- RightWingDuck:

Welcome to Campaign in Flames. Here's your host.. Joooooooooohn Kerry!

You Have The Conn #3 (What Every Democrat Is Thinking Now) - Noodles:

Hey Monty, I wish I would have picked what was behind curtain #3 instead!

Report To Sick Bay (The European Influence Redux) - Frenchy Bear Paux:

I know my campaign lacks energy, but what the hell was I thinking when I agreed to that "espresso-enema" this morning? ZOOOOOM....

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 Gerry'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. And don't forget to check out Gerry's great blog, too!

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!
