My New Favorite Caption Contest #39

I've had a rather rough time for the past three or four days, so reading over the captions for last week's contest really helped me laugh. Uterus jokes, golem jokes, a killer Dancing with the Stars reference from Mike Ellis and a lot of people who were slightly surprised that, even after you rip his gallbladder out of his body, Philip's still got about 20 possible jokes for every situation. 

Which is why I had hard time choosing a caption this week; each one of them made me laugh.

But the one that made me guffaw may not be AS funny to other people, because "other people" probably haven't spent hours upon hours listening to every musical theatre album that has ever been released on cd, mp3, cassette, 8-track, vinyl, or phonograph cylinder, trying to figure out exactly what lyrics Patti Lupone is singing in Evita and remaining calm as we tell our friends for the 487th time that what we're listening to is not a soundtrack - - movies have soundtracks - - this is an ORIGINAL CAST RECORDING!!!

Here's Philip's winning caption...

"We'll always be bosom buddies..."

I love that because it makes me think of Bea Arthur. And also, because my friend Max is in a production of Mame right now that is getting great reviews. Congratulations, Max.

I chose this week's picture, because this is exactly how I feel right now...

Worn down and used up. Or as my Daddy used to say, "Rode hard and put up wet." Which is a bad thing, not a sexual thing.

Poor Supes. If this is where he's going to end up, maybe he should have stayed dead. At least he could have gone out with a bang. And killer 90's hair.

Give the old, blue and red boyscout a caption, will you? He needs something.

I'm not going to pretend I have anything better than Doug's "Clark Can't."
That's brilliant. The defense rests.

"I got saggy diapers that leak..."

Bunny said...

"Yes, I'm waiting for the G-D bus. If one more person asks me why I just don't fly . . . "

"Mom was right. I should have worn the Batman outfit."

"He was never the same after Lois left him for Wonder Woman."

'Hmmmm. Maybe the pickle costume would have been a better fit after all.'

Lance Noe said...

I dont think this pic needs a caption but......

"Yes, I'm waiting for the G-D bus. If one more person asks me why I just don't fly . . . "

is the winner to me!

HOWEVER, I love that someone is walking in front of him with a superman ELVIS jacket, shirt, kimono thingy
