Wednesday Caption Contest: Part 30.

This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


The actual caption:

He pioneered mock television news 30 years ago and wrote a satirical book about becoming the 44th president of the United States. So when comedian Al Franken says he is considering a run for U.S. Senate you have to ask -- is he serious? Al Franken is seen in this file photo, during broadcast of a radio show in Washington. Picture taken February 10, 2005. (Larry Downing/Reuters)

Surely there's a better caption for this photograph.

Entries will remain open until 11:59 PM, Central Standard Time, Tuesday, November 15. Submit your captions in the comments section, or email at WILLisms@gmail.com.

Last week's photo:


Winners from last week:

Harry Reid is loses his train of thought as Schumer unpredictably continues their game of "Hide the Index Finger."



"I felt such a relief coming out in front of my colleagues in the Senate today I realize now I made a terrible mistake asking for a closed session to do it in. Now I'm making it official! I'm Harry, I'm here, I'm queer, get used to it!"

Honorable Mention #1


Darth Schumer - "You have failed me for the last time, Admiral"

Honorable Mention #2

Jim Rose:

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid spoke to reporters from the mainstream media Tuesday evening imploring them to, "Help me, help you! Help me, help you!"

Honorable Mention #3


Inside Schumer's head: Look at me Harry....I know you want me... I know you love me...look at me...come on...you know you want to look...you dirty old man...

Captioning is neat.

Posted by: D. Carter at November 11, 2005 07:42 PM

Al Franken is incredulous that his application to the exclusive "Ronnies and Arnies Only" actor-politician club has been rejected because he wasn't a "real" actor, a "real" commedian, or even "realistic".
