This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


The actual caption:

President Bush, center, joins other leaders at the Summit of the Americas, as they wait for the start of opening ceremonies in Mar del Plata, Argentina, in this Nov. 4, 2005 file photo. President Bush's slumping popularity at home may be taking a toll on his ability to exert influence overseas. As Bush prepares to depart Monday Nov. 14, 2005 on a trip to Asia, questions abound about the global consequences of a U.S. president hobbled by domestic setbacks. On the bottom row from left to right are: Bolivia's President Eduardo Rodriguez, U.S. and President George W. Bush and Costa Rica's President Abel Pacheco. Top row, from left to right, are: Dominican Republic's President Leonel Fernandez, Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister Patrick Manning, and Uruguay's President Tabare Vazquez. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite/File)

Surely there's a better caption for this photograph.

Winners from last week:



"In a sad reflection of just how shallow and self-referential the Democratic 'echo chamber' is, Al Franklin does his version of Margaret Cho's entire career... imitating her mother!"


Rob B.:




Taken just moments before the incident, Al Franken is simultaneously punched in the back of the head and slapped in the face for laughing at his own terribly unfunny joke. Station employees describe this as a daily event.

Honorable Mention #1


"Ladies and gentleman, I'd like to announce that our paychecks won't bounce this week! That's six straight weeks, thanks to those kids in New York. Hooray!"

Honorable Mention #2

atomic vomit:

General Tojo reacts to fellow war crimes defendant Tokyo Rose's claim that she too was supporting the troops.

Honorable Mention #3

Mr. Michael:

Al Franken, center, enjoys a moment of levity with both members of his listening audience Live in Studio.

Captioning is swell.

"Hey, Tabare, you see that lump in his jacket?"
"Yes, Patrick, I do..."

Holy crap, Kip, that was funny!

Posted by: Cullen at November 16, 2005 01:23 PM

i thought the same thing, Kip. That's frightening for both of us.

"Bush checked his left and his right and wondered if he should have paid the extra $100 dollars to Hillary's U2 concert fund to stay out of the cheap seats."

Posted by: Rob B. at November 16, 2005 01:29 PM

The two teams in the world finals of the "See No Evil, Hear no Evil, Speak No Evil" olympics rehearse just before the bell.

BTW, I like Kip's better.

George tried to play it off, but his lunch of barbeque with baked beans and cabbage wouldn't be denied.

Posted by: Hoodlumman at November 16, 2005 03:29 PM

Bush was slightly embarrassed when none of the other dignitaries would do 'the wave' with him.

Abel Pacheco: "Pardon me Mr. President, but I just set my pie down on that seat."

Costa Rica's President Abel Pacheco looks around for Nipsey Russell as President Bush ponders Gene Rayburn's question, "Hillary Clinton is a 'blank.'"

I know I said no cell phones during the movie, I was just wondering why President Ahmadinejad didn't show for my screening of "Muhammad Goes To Camp."

I didn't do it. He who smelt it, dealt it.

So this is what the Democrats ment by "presidential oversite committe"

Posted by: Quadko at November 19, 2005 03:48 PM

The new , more aggressive George W. Bush was on display at the recent Summit of the Americas.

This picture was snapped just moments before the American leader dispatched Costa Rican President Abel Pacheco with a reverse ridge hand strike to the throat for "looking at me funny."

Posted by: Buckley F. Williams at November 19, 2005 04:28 PM

BTW, after Kip's opener we're all playing for second.

Mmmmm, Colonel, when you said 'finger lickin' good, you knew exactly what you were talking about.

Posted by: V the K at November 20, 2005 11:24 AM

Ha! Chavez'll never guess where that spitwad came from.

President Bush gives the sign to Condi to throw a high hard one at Hugo's head.

Posted by: D. Carter at November 20, 2005 12:44 PM

Marty, I'll take Bush to block on the U.N. Squares.

It's only University Challenge George, it's only University Challenge!

Posted by: charles austin at November 20, 2005 07:39 PM

Bush thought his guest appearance would be a piece of cake, but soon found he had vastly underestimated the burden of being the center square.

I concur with BFW. We're playing for the silver, folks. Gold is gone.
