Wednesday Caption Contest: Part 43.

This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


The actual caption:

Broadway singer Michael Feinstein, right, tries to show a dance move alongside President Bush at the end of entertainment at a Valentines Day Social Dinner in the East Room of the White House in Washington Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2006. Bush said he would not dance with Feinstein in front of the cameras. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)

Surely there's a better caption for this photograph.

Entries will remain open until 11:59 PM, Central Standard Time, Tuesday, February 21. Submit your captions in the comments section, or email at WILLisms@gmail.com.

Last week's photo:


Winners from last week:


Rob B.:

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Peter Pace had tried and tried to tell Rumsfeld that using gang signs was a 'bad idea' when pitching this budget to the NAACP but it was to no avail as Rummy asked the crowd,"Who let the Pork out!"


Buckley F. Williams:

"Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld entertains the crowd during a news conference at the Pentagon with his air-piano rendition of 'Stairway to Heaven' while Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Peter Pace rocks on to his right."



Rumsfeld again misjudges his audience by using sign language to deliver a speech on defense policy to a crowd of blind partisans.

Honorable Mention #1

Jim Rose:

After Donald Rumsfeld demonstrated his new hypnotic technique at a recent Pentagon briefing, the press reaction was unanimous: "I love it! Much better than Cats! I'm going to see it again and again!"

Honorable Mention #2

Laurence Simon:

Shut up, settle down, and you all can have the antidote when the conference is over.

Honorable Mention #3


"A la tuhuelpa legria Macarena! Que tuhuelce paralla legria cosabuena! A la tuhuelpa legria Macarena,

Aaaaaaa, Macarena!!"

President GWB's performance of Inna Godda Davita moves this man to Dance... The President gloats, while the Secret Service forms a circle around the President to barricade any further fans from getting too close!...

Michael Feinstein is more than a Broadway Star... Michael Feinstein is a pro pick pocket...

At little Billy's bar mitzvah, the ventriloquist was poorly recieved as everyone could clearly see his lips moving.

President Bush addresses the audience telling them "Hey, if I am looking bad? Don't blame me... Blame it on Carl Rove!" ...

Sensing something awry, Mike Feinstein glances down just before he's tackled by a Secret Service agent. Unfortunately, the agent was too late to protect the President from a "bad touch."

And now, Michael Feinstein and his "Donald Rumsfeld at a press conference" act.

What are those little figures in the background? Uh, the caption...

"Michael Feinstein shows the President how to tap-dance amongst the Lilliputans 'without harming a single hair on their tiny little heads.' The President notes that the Lilliputans have tied his shoelaces together."

"Ladies and gentleman, Michael Feinstein here certainly has a curious way of dancing cheek to cheek."

George Bush seemed to have no problem but Michael Feinstein struggled in the newest edition of "Skating and Debating with the Stars."

While George Bush performed his ventriliquism act for a New York audience with a Michael Feinstein lookalike dummy, the self-mocking comments mysteriously emanated from an Al Gore lookalike dummy in Saudi Arabia.
