Wednesday Caption Contest: Part 22.

This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


The actual caption:

Eric Leese sits on a couch in his flooded living room in Metairie, outside New Orleans September 5, 2005. Thousands of residents of suburban New Orleans returned on Monday to inspect homes wrecked by Hurricane Katrina and President George W. Bush went back to the disaster zone to quell a political crisis over bungled aid efforts. (Lee Celano/Reuters)

There must be a better caption out there for this photograph, especially considering how partisan and agenda-filled it is.

Entries will remain open until 11:59 PM, Central Standard Time, Tuesday, September 13. Submit your captions in the comments section, or email at WILLisms@gmail.com.

Last week's photo:


Winners from last week:


Rodney Dill:

Chavez: "I'm please to have such a well known celebrity as Bill Cosby come and visit our beautiful country."



With the full support of Jessie Jackson, Hugo Chavez tries unsuccessfully to blow the winning bubble in the 'Hubba Bubba Chicle De Globo Espectacular.'


Buckley F. Williams:

And then with the customary overly firm handshake, the "Quien Es Mas Macho" contest began.

Honorable Mention #1


While Jackson distracted Chavez with time-tested ploy of, "One, two, three, four, I declare thumb war!", he managed to lift his wallet with his free hand.

Honorable Mention #2

Kevin Turner (via email):

"The Reverend Jesse Jackson surprised Venezuelan Dick-tator Hugo Chavez with the NaMBLA 'left-handed secret handshake'."

Captioning is good, and good for you.

While Rodney Dill marvels at the wonder of indoor plumbing, he contemplates on his next caption for Willisms

Eric had regrets on using his last wish to fill his house shin-deep with Hershey's chocolate syrup.

Posted by: Hoodlumman at September 7, 2005 11:22 AM

Eric patted himself on the back for getting Teflon-Guard[TM] stain protectant when he bought his new couch.

Posted by: Hoodlumman at September 7, 2005 11:23 AM

...and I am please to thank you very much, Will.

Wife: "Bill, when are you going to fix that leak?"
Bill" "As soon as the game's over, honey."

Ah!...the cesspool of life!...

The New Dolby 7.2 surround might have been bit expensive but the theatre experience was SO lifelike.


Bill Cosby was really bummed when he found out that Kayne West and Jessie Jackson weren't coming to his "Riding out Katrina" party because of a mistake in race... i mean, identity.

Posted by: Rob B. at September 7, 2005 03:23 PM

I wondered what Rob B. would think about this guy?

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at September 7, 2005 03:31 PM

I kind of think this guy is too tired and too hung over to think about it right now! He'll think about it tomorrow... If he feels better?... We hope!

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at September 7, 2005 03:59 PM

He is swamped!...

Posted by: Sugar at September 7, 2005 06:36 PM

It must be some kind of a laid back Louisiana kind of thing that makes him think it is OK to just sit there?

Posted by: Sugar at September 7, 2005 06:53 PM

I suppose he didn't want to leave his pet alligator!

"Jees, I wonder if Sean Penn will come and bail me out?"

Posted by: Rodney Dill at September 7, 2005 07:03 PM

Is that the definition of "Coon Ass"?

"Knee deep in fetid water and with friends and relatives long since evacuated, Eric Leese of Metarie, La. relaxes, giving the word 'slacker' new meaning."

Posted by: Giacomo at September 7, 2005 07:41 PM

Is it just me? Or does anyone else find it disturbing that this guy seems to be so compfortable? ...

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at September 7, 2005 07:44 PM

Edmund was only left to wonder as he sat in his living room, "What if Sean Penn had had enough room in his boat for me?"

Eric Leese, of Metairie, LA , marvels at the realism of his home theater setup.

My buddies pulled the ol' finger in the warm water trick on my last night after I passed out. I woke up to this!

Man, how much DID I drink last night?

After Dallas was canceled Patrick Duffy really let himself go, longing for the days before Larry Hagman overshadowed him on TV, the glory years of Man From Atlantis.

Since I'm just now reading the real caption, let me revise my original caption...

Wife: "Bill, when are you going to fix that leak?"
Eric: "I told you, as soon as the game's over, honey."

Posted by: Patrick Carver at September 8, 2005 11:40 PM

Man, I'm retarded...needed to change the name in the wife's line. Okay, here's the corrected caption:

Wife: "Eric, when are you going to fix that leak?"
Eric: "I told you, as soon as the game's over, honey."

Hmmmm..."Man, I'm retarded" could be a good caption for the photo, too.

"Maybe I should have gone a little easier on the Pine-Sol."

You might be a redneck if you've ever sat shirtless with the footrest out on your recliner while your living room is shin-deep full of water.

Observer: "The only thing missing is a beer and a remote."

Man: "Well, the remote don't work so well anymore on account of the flood messing up my TV. But check out the floor. Yesiree - that's beer. I live next to the Budweiser plant and when it got flooded, beer poured straight into my living room. Sure it's a little watery, but with Bud, who can taste the difference?"
