Wednesday Caption Contest: Part 25.

This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


The actual caption:

US President George W. Bush shakes hands with members of a search and recue unit in Lake Charles, Louisiana. US President George W. Bush this month toured areas hit by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in a vain quest for a 'bullhorn moment' that would recall his leadership after the September 11 strikes(AFP/File/Jim Watson)

There must be a better caption out there for this photograph, particularly considering how seethingly biased it is. Geez.

Entries will remain open until 11:59 PM, Central Standard Time, Tuesday, October 11 (a two week time frame this go around). Submit your captions in the comments section, or email at WILLisms@gmail.com.

Last week's photo:


Winners from last week:


John (appreciate the Seinfeld reference):

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!"



After catching a glimpse of Helen Thomas in an appallingly short skirt, Donald Rumsfeld contemplates gouging his eyes out.


Zsa Zsa:

I have seen London. I have seen France. I really didn't need to see Helen in her underpants!

DIShonorable mention.

Gus Garciaton:

Donald Rumsfeld explains to the visiting Kyrgyz press corps, "Me Rumsfeld. Me play joke. Me put pee pee in your coke."

Captioning is so awesome it hurts.

Enter today! Or tomorrow, whatever. You have two weeks this time around.

I'm honore'd and humbled. Finally...

Posted by: John at September 28, 2005 09:11 AM

Displaying the racism that has come to characterize the Federal Government's response to Hurricane Katrina, President George W. Bush pulls the leader of a Louisiana rescue team out of line to "Get rid of this black guy standing behind me."

Posted by: John at September 28, 2005 09:18 AM

Thanks for showing up to make some homes. I hear that Jimmy Carter's still off building 10,000 coffins.

(Nice caption Laurence. It sure has your trademark "bite" to it.)

"Sorry Fella's I'm all out. I gave the last of my beads to Helen Thomas."

And you, ma'am... You take the left flank. We'll de-beach Kennedy if it takes all of us all day.

I think Gus won!

Bush assured rescue workers that they wouldn't have to wait too long before he would use his "Rovian hurricane machine" to flood New Yorkers into a large enough red state to disperse their voting power.

Speaking with animal rescue workers, President Bush inquires, "How much is that little doggie in the window?"

Let's see, Men In Black, a black man, a man, and what are you again? A "wo-man???"

"You two are both my witnesses: This is an honest-to-God black person standing right next to me."

Also, there's still time to enter my caption contest. Results go up Friday.

"Okay, listen up. Very quietly get the firehoses and the dogs and let's see if we can have some fun with the black guy behind me. I wouldn't want to disappoint Charlie Rangel."

Posted by: Giacomo at September 29, 2005 03:55 PM

I'm going to modify my previous caption, although I still like the doggie in the window one better:

"... Men In Black, a black man, a white man, a woman, and you got that arm injury from the black man, didn't you? I can see how proud of himself he is. It's a good thing you have two right arms."

Posted by: the paperboy at September 30, 2005 11:00 AM

Just a minute, they'e detaining a couple of Jemimas for me to hug and mug with for the camera again. I'll be right back.

One of ya'll get me a do-rag and a mop, and I'll show this punk Nagin how to clean up a mess.

Posted by: D. Carter at October 2, 2005 12:28 PM

George W. is overheard by the same photographer that likes and news outfit that likes dig for dirt with really sneaky pictures telling rescue operators, "I'm not really a people person, I'm not really a Christian.

"I just want to manipulate everything and everyone because of my materialist philosophy. No, we materialists never project our own neurotic notions unto others. ::wink wink:::"

OK, so maybe he didn't actually use the words and symbols "::wink wink::" but we needed to enhance this caption to inform the public of what they can't figure out for themselves.
