Caption Contest Winners!

Je le regrette le jeux sont fait — as Jacques Chirac is certainly saying now that the last Captain’s Caption Contest has closed out and the winners are about to be announced. In fact, Jacqui — do you mind if I call you Jacqui, mon ami? — appears to be eagerly debating the wonderful entries CQ readers submitted for this week’s contest:

Sacre bleu! Voila, maintenant … le winners:
Captain’s Award (Leap of Faith) – Nathan:
“Well, his French isn’t all bad. He does know how to pronounce ‘Lambeau’.”
You Have The Conn #1 (Death Imitates Art) – ff1047:
Trust me, it’ll be just like “Weekend at Bernies”, we can pull this off. For christs sake, the Democrats propped up a dead body as a candidate, we can prop up a dead terrorist as a “leader”.
You Have The Conn #2 (The Untold Story) – Brian Wohlgemuth:
Luis Zapatero stands unimpressed as Jacques Chirac decscribes how Saddam Hussein was able to move Chirac’s mouth as he sat on Hussein’s lap.
You Have The Conn #3 (Die Hard With A Vengeance Award) – Swede:
Yes, yes, of course I know he won, you fool1 I just got off the phone wit zat idiot Bush! By the way, what does “Yippee Ky Yay Mother F’er” mean?
Report to Sick Bay (Or The Morgue, Depending On Who You Believe) – Betalune:
Chirac: “This hand, gentlemen, THIS HAND is the very hand that wiped the drool from Arafat’s chin when I visited him last night. Pardon me, gentlemen, I . . . I can’t continue. Give me a moment alone, please.
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 my 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!
