This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


The actual caption:

Democratic presidential hopeful former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., left, uses a rag to clean cans of food in preparation for distribution during a campaign stop at the Lowcountry Food Bank, in Charleston, S.C., Thursday, Jan. 10, 2008. Volunteer at the food bank Marilyn Armstrong appears top right. Edwards placed second in Iowa, third in New Hampshire and faces even longer odds of pulling off a win in upcoming states. But he still attracts the support of as many as 20 percent of Democratic voters in national polls (AP Photo/Steven Senne)

There are ample opportunities for better captioning, here. Give it a go, won't you.

Entries will remain open until 11:59 PM, Central Standard Time, Tuesday, January 22. Submit your captions in the comments section, or email via WILLisms@gmail.com.

Pleas don't take a picture of me! My hair and makeup are not right!!

1) So I can just pop a squat, and give it to you, and you'll believe it?

2) You know, if I wanted to, I could donate these things by the thousands!

3) Even though he has gloves on, this is the dirtiest work his hands have had to do since college.

I'm getting ready for the next primary, and I'm going to win it with this can of 'Whoop Ass.'

Presidential hopeful John Edwards displays his previously-hidden superpower of directional biomagnetism in hopes that this would help him clinch the nomination.

Off-screen: "Hey, Senator Edwards! Nice cans!"

Posted by: Wyatt Earp at January 17, 2008 10:00 AM

After hearing the old joke, "What do you call a homeless person kicking a can down the street? Moving" for the first time, John Edwards makes destroying all cans part of his plan to bring the Two Americas together.

Senator Edwards tried to open a Can of Whoop-Ass... he broke a fingernail and relented.

Senator Edwards receives his new shipment of Canned Applause just prior to the next debate.

or a Caption from the the Bowels of Hell:

"My wife used to have cans like this!"

Posted by: Deathlok at January 18, 2008 02:49 PM

Wow, Deathlok, you weren't kidding about the Bowels of Hell. That is BAD. Yikes. Should one (hypothetically, of course) feel guilty thinking it was funny?

"Whoa... Breck comes in 55 gallon drums? I'm outta here."

1) "John Edwards in training for a STOMP audition."

2) "Hmmm.. Latex and cans... this is familiar."

Polishing components of his new telecommunications initiative, Edwards responds to critics, "Just wait till tomorrow when the string gets here. We'll see who's laughing then!"
