This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


The actual caption:

Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld pauses to rub his eyes during a press briefing at the Pentagon, in Washington, Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2005. Rumsfeld commented on the elections in Afghanistan and the use of the American military to aid victims of Hurricane Katrina. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

There must be a better caption out there for this photograph.

Entries will remain open until 11:59 PM, Central Standard Time, Tuesday, September 27. Submit your captions in the comments section, or email at WILLisms@gmail.com.

Last week's photo:


Winners from last week:



Hiker Stephen Gough, "I knew I should have taken a left at Albuquerque."


Bart Harmon:

Realizing, at last, that he had mistakenly transposed his wife's promise to "take him on a hike for his birthday" for encouragement to "take a hike in your birthday suit," British subject Stephen Gough finally resolved to seek treatment for his ever-worsening aural dislexia.



Stephen Gough looks to the skies, always desperate to keep tabs on the weather. He always faced ridicule from people he passed on the road, but a cold front passing inevitably brought jokes about his "little hitchhiker", those were the cruelest of all.

Captioning is Rumsfeldeliciously rad.

Defending Gen Honore's recent comments about the press being "Stuck on stupid," Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld wearily rubs his eyes as NBC's David Gregory shreiks, "Well, the jerk store called, and they're running out of YOU!"

When Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld was asked by conspiracy theorists about possible connections between classified military weather control equipment and the now apparently continuously onslaught of hurricanes on the Gulf Coast, he covered his eyes and muttered in a thick German accent, "I know noth... ing! ... Noth... ing!" Not shown, President George W. Bush was reportedly holding his hands over his ears shouting, "I can't hear you! I can't hear you! Nya Nya Nya Nya!" Deputy Defense secretary Paul Wolfowitz was reportedly holding his hands over his mouth, unable to speak, but with eyes darting nervously about the room.

To self: "Ya know, when that Broussard fella cried on TV, the pressman started taking it easy on 'im. Maybe, if I can get these old guys to squeak out a drop or two I might be able to get the heck outta here an' go fishin'.

He is best known for his animosity towards the press in equal measure to the need to wear Make-up for his Televised Press Conferences. Still, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is not above blending his eyeshadow on the advice of the veteran Whitehouse Correspondent's corps.

Yes! This is how the President controls the Hurricane.

Yes! When he puts his fingers up his nostrils, then it will spawn tornadoes in the area of poor folk!

No! This is not a secret code for Osama to attack again.

Any other questions from someone other than the NYT?
