Caption Contest Winners!

The votes are in, and the judges have rendered their decision -- and they had another tough time with their decision! David and Margaret from Our House may have been intimidated by the enthusiasm of the CQ crowd, just as Senator Kerry appears intimidated by this gang of toughs:

Here are the winners!

Captain's Award (Who's Your Dummy?) - Inkling:

Madame Tussaud's 2005 exhibition, History's Greatest Losers, was a hit with many American tour groups.

You Have The Conn #1 (The Family Reunion) - Twoff:

Despite John Kerry's resemblance to his beloved "Lurch", "Thing" came to the inescapable conclusion that Kerry would in fact take away the Addams family's tax cuts.

You Have The Conn #2 (Give Him The Sedagive!) - skatz51:

The angry villagers finally surround the Frankenstein monster.

You Have The Conn #3 (Who's Your Dummy, Redux) - Eric Akawie:

The life-size ventriloquist's dummy was a huge hit at the AARP convention.

Report to Sick Bay (Ben Dover Memorial Award) - Laurence Simon:

Just ask yourself where the man's other fist is, and you'll understand Kerry's expression.

The Elder Award for the best reference of a bad 1980's video - Doug "ZaMoose" Stewart:

"Rooooxxaaannnne! Youuuu donn't have to puuut on de red light!"

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 David and Margaret'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. Don't forget to visit Our House (er, their house?), either!

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!
