The "You're still a loser anyhow" Caption awards

Posted on: August 25, 2008 11:30 am
 

In this Blog I will list my picks for the best caption to each of the 5 photos Joe posts, I'm not doing compilations. I will not include myself as this would be unfair to all of you lesser minds (kidding, kidding, relax OK?) Now this is in no way meant to be authoritative, in fact no scoring will be counted by me at all. Nor is this meant to be disparaging to Shuless Joe's picks, but simply that I have a different sense of humor than he does and I am not constrained by picking the clean ones, just as long as they aren't profane and comply with the TOS, otherwise they'll be pulled and not by me. Innuendo is great, euphemisms wonderful, out and out profanity, ahh, no. Also, I don't have a lot of time, so I don't know if I'll be able to keep up, or whether or not I'll get bored sooner rather than later (so don't go yammering like we do to Joe when he doesn't post winnners promptly) but we'll see how it goes.

The 'You're still a loser anyhow' Caption awards

I liked your idea though... It was nice to see a different opinion, lately I've been clueless to Joe's picks for winner's - I just don't get his sense of humor... but again its a matter of opinion & taste, and furthermore its his blog and I think he does a fine job running it, so kudos to him and good try to you!

The 'You're still a loser anyhow' Caption awards

Well, this didn't last too long. I don't know if it was just an alignment of bad timing or what, but first, my boss goes on vacation and I have to do 2 jobs at once, then I get sick. So after only a few days I am giving up this endeavor as it it is now clear to me that I will not have the time, at least on a consistent enough basis to do this. All this just points to the difficulty of continuing to do this on a daily basis that Joe has saddled himself with. I salute him and realize my position does not allow to mimic his august performance.

Translation for Bengals fans (jzinger) This means I'm done doing this and will remove this blog soon.

Sorry, I got some bad food last night, got sick and went to bed at 8pm.

Sir... place your hands on top of your Olympic rings and turn around slowly.

1.) Ling fails miserably at the "touch your nose with your finger" sobriety test.- Mister Peabody
2.) Sorry but inanimate objects don't say anything...........ever. -Sunnysidez86
3.) After trying to catch the "out of the corner of his eye" peak at Stacy. Roger was busted by his wife and did NOT earn a Klondike bar. -River_Rat
4.) While working his way thru college, valet Ernie Greasespot had difficulty earning enough tips for that second semester- River_Rat

HOWEVER if Joe's were eligible I would have picked this one for #4

4. Even the Indy 500 wasn't safe when the senior's meeting ended at the Community Center.

After crashing through a series a barracades to end up on the track, Ester Ross turned on her blinkers and parked diagonally near the wall. Ross' error caused a deadly, 15-car pile-up, and serious damage to the track itself. When asked for comment, Ester simply stated, "This isn't the way to Country Kitchen Buffet." Police then informed her that she had made a very serious mistake, at which she became visably upset, and stated that she was, "Sick and tired of having her mental condition called in to question!"-Shuless Joe

(Usually his suck,)

( Just kidding Joe)


5.) Tryouts for the job of team fool are underway after the departure of Manny.-Coach Bib13

Nice. Your numbers 1 and 4 were my runners up... #4 was an especially hard choice.

I think I'm starting to know why you're so good at this... We have almost the exact same sense of humor!

When '"crazy" is an understatement...

1) Jerry's tumor roots have now hit the gray matter. -Hoopsisbest

2) Shiela, still living in her past, couldn't pass up the chance to own a life size version of her favorite childhood toy, The Weebles. Because everybody knows that "Weebles wooble, but they don't fall down". -ktopp24

3) "Ah, summer is ending, the leaves will soon be changing, and if you put your hand to your ear and listen real hard, you can hear the Raiders still sucking."-Mister Peabody

4) Waldo the Zombie would finish last in his equestrian event after he kept trying to lean over and eat his horse's brains. -Mister Peabody

5)  It was a dream come true for WNBA statistician Robbi McKenzie, as this was the only venue where a lesbian wearing Dickies pants and AV equipment could potentially win a Rump-Shaker Contest.-Train Derailer

Both the Zima caption and the "Kissing up to Shuless" compendium were runners up on my list. I liked the party girl one too, but the one I picked just makes me laugh more. I think one of the keys is the staying power. If it makes me laugh during the day, I put it on my list. If it still makes me laugh later, it's got a pretty good shot to win. Some, of course, are just too genius to pass up either way.

Nice job, though! Now, just imagine what it's like on a busy night with 130 captions, and a little stronger submissions than we had today. I'm glad someone has an idea what my day's like.

WOW Joe you're implications are spot on. It's a pain sorting through them, and especially today. As I said earlier, submissions (including mine) were a bit anemic today. Anyhow, my 1st 'You're still a loser anyhow' Caption awards:

 
1) His coach always had difficulty pronouncing his name correctly, so unfortunately for Siskauskas, after this game he was simply referred to as "Kiss"! -Hoosier Mick

2) - In a literal interpretation of the rules, Mick is called for illegally placing his hand on a ball. - Waldocruise


3) Beckham makes another five mill the easy way. - Warpedmind


4) Contrary to reports, the Queen of England is quite the party girl.- Mister  Peabody

5)  Carl was working on his 12th Zima and really couldn't care less any more about studying race film and developing strategy. -Train Derailer

And I know I said I wasn't going to pick a compendium (I probably won't do it again), but this one was too funny.

Coach Bib13 - Kissing up to Shuless. . .

(Screwed it up the first try)
