Wednesday Caption Contest: Part 32.

This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


The actual caption:

Former U.S. President George H. W. Bush puts on his headset during an event organised by the US charity group SmileTrain, which provide free surgery to Chinese children with clefts in Beijing 15 November 2005. The World Health Organization estimates there are approximately 35,000 babies born every year in China with cleft lip and or palate and there is a backlog of hundreds of thousands of Chinese who have never received reconstructive surgery for their clefts, as the majority of these children are too poor to ever afford the cleft surgery they desperately need.

Surely there's a better caption for this photograph.

Entries will remain open until 11:59 PM, Central Standard Time, Tuesday, November 29. Submit your captions in the comments section, or email at WILLisms@gmail.com.

Jason Kallini:

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


V the K:

GWB didn't give a damn what the other jurors thought, The Juice was goin' down!.

Honorable Mention #1

Buckley F. Williams:

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."

Honorable Mention #2

Rodney Dill:

DRUDGEBREAKING: Video footage was released today showing background reference material used by Maureen Dowd in creation of her work, Are Men Necessary?"

Honorable Mention #3


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

Captioning is something to be thankful for.

Enter today!

Congrats Kip. Very deserving win.

As Bush removed his earphones, he was shocked to realize Tom Cruises' revelation that Xenu had only allowed for "999 points of light", not "1000."

After listening to translations of Saddam Hussein's trial, the former dictator's former nemesis was no longer being kinder and gentler, but was instead something very, very different. With shaking hands and a quivering eye, Mr. Bush stammered "I'll strangle him with my bare hands!"

If I told you guys once I've told you a thousand times, "Read my damn lips" No new Taxes!

Reporters await comments from Former President Bush on his opinion of Steven Wright's performance of 'The Vagina Monologues.'

Posted by: Jason Kallini at November 25, 2005 08:48 PM

Reacting to anti-American comments, former President George H. W. Bush bends a flexible metal bar with his bare hands while growling, "Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry." To the astonishment of the conference attendees, he then ripped off his shirt and hurled a papier-mache boulder through a plate glass window before collapsing in exhaustion.

Captain, how soon can you land?
I can't tell.
You can tell me, I'm a doctor.
No, I mean, I'm just not sure.
Well, can't you take a guess?
Well, not for another two hours.
You can't take a guess "for another two hours"?
No, no, no, I mean we can't land for another two hours
