Wednesday Caption Contest: Part 135.

This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


The actual caption:

New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer exits his Fifth Avenue residence with his wife, Silda, Wednesday, March 12, 2008, in New York. Spitzer announced at a news conference Wednesday that he would resign, following intense pressure to step down because of a prostitution scandal, effective Monday, March 17. (AP Photo/ Louis Lanzano)

Hmm, yeah, there's a better caption available, I am sure.

Entries will remain open until 11:59 PM, Central Standard Time, Tuesday, March 18. Submit your captions in the comments section, or email via WILLisms@gmail.com.

Last Week's Photo:

And... The Winners:

1. Wyatt Earp:

Kamaruzaman never understood the Malaysian rules for tipping strippers.

2. Nathan Hale:

The Sultan of Brunei (center) observes his country's new electoral system--One Man, One Vote--in action. In this system, the one man with the one vote, Speaker of the Legislative Counsel Kemaludin, is allowed to cast his secret ballot. In her last known public appearance, beauty pageant winner Aizalyasni holds the ballot box.

3. Deathlok:

With McCain locking up the Republican vote, the turnout at the Pennsylvanian primary was disappointing.

Captioning is pure schadenfreude. Pile on today!

Eliot's encounter with his next "call girl" (right) would cost him 50% of his estate and $300 per billable hour.

This one is not really an entry (although I did give myself a caption contest win once back in 2006). It's more of a statement on the lack of party identification in the original caption:

New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, by all accounts a Republican, exits his Fifth Avenue residence with his wife, Silda, who also looks like a Republican, Wednesday, March 12, 2008, in New York. The likely GOP Governor announced at a news conference Wednesday that he would resign, following intense pressure to step down because of an assuredly Republican-style prostitution scandal, effective Monday, March 17.

Hi, Victoria. This is Silda, I'm kinda waiting for my three o'clock. He must be running late. I'll just have to call my five o'clock and let him know.

In one of his last acts as governor of New York, Elliot Spitzer, with the help of his wife Silda, inspects the facilities at the newest rest area on the New York State Thruway.

Silda Spitzer shows off the wall that will separate her from
Elliott for a long, long time.

Eliot was embarrassed to find his wife and not Larry Craig in the next stall.

Eliot Mess and his band of "Untouchables" begin their patrol.

In the first episode of the latest revival of "Candid Camera," Eliot Spitzer has been told that he'll be meeting lissome "Kennedy" for an intimate encounter. Watch the wacky hijinks that ensue when "Kennedy" turns out to be his wife!

P.S.: Thanks for second! I thought both of the other winners were better than mine.

Spitzer couldn't resist the young woman built like brick shithouse; little did he know Silda would soon be building a brick shithouse as a permanent residence for her wayward husband.

Posted by: Maggie at March 17, 2008 07:22 AM

On March 12th, Eliot Spitzer was asked to remove himself from his place of residence. . .that request came from his wife.

Posted by: Deathlok at March 18, 2008 03:53 PM

Silda Spitzer: "$4,300?! I would have done that if he gave me $4,300!!!"
