This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


The actual caption:

Cuban President Fidel Castro displays a copy of Forbes magazine which had ranked him as the seventh wealthiest ruler in the world, during a live television broadcast in Havana, May 15, 2006. Castro furiously denied on Monday the story in Forbes magazine that he was worth $900 million and said he would step down if the magazine could prove the assertion. REUTERS/Ismael Francisco-Prensa Latina

Surely there's a better caption for this photograph.

"Peek-a-boo! Where is Fidel? Where is Fidel?"

Posted by: Hoodlumman at May 17, 2006 09:02 AM

1) Damn! And to think, I could have married an Arab princess. But instead I got this lousy island and a bunch of poor people.

2) Fidel thinking to himself: Did I remember to lock that treasure room in the basement?

Posted by: GOP and College at May 17, 2006 11:20 AM

1. Damn! This was such a good issue of "Dictator Today" that I cannot separate the pages.

2. Ah, the smell of it.

3. I love the smell of despots in the morning. Smells like...victory.

How could I be wealthy? Have you seen my country lately?

Obviously the Numero Uno way to know you've made it is to be in Forbe's Who's Who of Kings, Queens, and Dictators, but what are the other nine ways.

10. You've Slept with Paris Hilton at the Paris Hilton
9. You really do have more money than even Forbes thinks you have.
8. Other Dictators avoid wearing Military Khaki's so they won't appear with the same clothing as you.
7. Whenever you say "OIL" the world price per barrel jumps
6. Your country has universal health care, (and the people have no freedom to complain about the service)
5. Whenever you say the word 'NUCLEAR' the world gets the hiccups
4. You have your picture in your Wallet, (On your currency)
3. You put a price on the head of your detractors (and you mean it, and can make good on it)
2. Donald Trump calls you up for advice

Fidel Castro blushes, hiding behind his magazine.
I luff theese contry! It has been so goot to me... I am reache man.

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at May 18, 2006 11:57 AM

I know that the magazine is muffling your audio feeds, but seriouly I just had a anchovy pizza with onions and a load of garlic. Ok?...
By the way, steer clear of the "little Dictators room" too. I had asparagus last night.

Fidel Castro has not been the same in front of an audience since he fell flat on his face...He is shy.
