« How Big Is The Reuters Photo Scandal? | WILLisms.com | Closed Primaries and the Lieberman Effect »

Wednesday Caption Contest: Part 65


This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


There is no actual caption - this photo has been killed by Reuters! As if we can believe anything they'd put in the caption anyway. Tell us what Reuters should have put in the caption if they were, you know, honest.

I admit this will be a hard one to caption, but maybe you can win acclaim for writing the definitive caption for the most infamous photo of all.

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

Last week's photo:


Winners from last week: 1. Rodney Dill:

He may be keeping the stiff British upper lip, but other features required closer scrutiny.

2. Mr. Right:

Prince Charles was determined to find his last shred of dignity, even if it took resorting to the most drastic of measures!

3. Sedosi:
An elated Prince Charles reacts to news that the fine print in his wedding agreement allows for concubines.

Honorable Mention #1 DaveD:
Worth a look, but still not king size.

Honorable Mention #2 SgtFluffy:
Now that he has found his willy again, Prince Charles will now go forth and finally consumate his marriage.

Honorable Mention #3 Ken S:

Excuse me while I whip this out...

Captioning is too important to be left to Reuters. Enter today!

Hezbollah and Reuters presented new architectural mock ups of the ovens they plan to operate in Beirut. "Rocket attacks have not been nearly efficient enough at killing Jews, so despite the fact that we deny the holocaust ever occurred, we have much to learn from the Germans."

Plumes of smoke...Oh man, we really need to hire somebody a little more adept at photoshopping so bloggers like Rusty Shackleford, Charles Johnson, and Jeff Harrell can't call us out so easily.

Aug 5, 2007 ~ Akmad uses too much starter fluid on the wood chips causeing the Great Grill Fire of Beruit


While the "hide behind civilians and Iranian assistence feature add to the experience of this new "Grand Theft Auto: Hezbollah Hammering" the repetitive backgrounds and poor smoke object rendering really distract from the game play.

The international community condemned recent Israeli actions which are clearly contributing to global climate change. We offer this proof of the Zionist plot to control the weather. It may be fake, but it's accurate. Really, we mean it. Come on, you can trust us.
