Winner announced; Blogosphere rejoices

The judges at Crotchety Old Man World Wide Headquarters and Discount House of Worship worked really hard to read all the wonderful submissions. They finally stopped laughing and turned in their scoring decisions to me.

For the second week in a row, it was a battle for second place as one caption just blew away the judges. Shadow, Fly, Kate, and Tahtimbo all scored first place votes.
Multiple votes were also cast for Jenn, MA Fat Woman, DB, Lauren, Bill, Mike, and Blognow 101.

But half of the first place votes were garnered by the winner, and a "Caption This" veteran, Bradley. The prize winning caption:

Richard Simmons is now prepared for the next time someone tells him to go f*** himself.

He wins the trophy, and entrecard credits. Congrats to Bradley.


Second place was very close, and won by Kate. Third place went to Tahtimbo.

Each will win some wonderful zucchini.

A great effort by everyone.

And thanks to everyone for the well wishes during my recent bout with the Black Death, or Yellow Fever, or whatever the hell it was I had. I'm no longer on the TP roll a day plan, and am recovering rapidly. I may even eat something by this weekend.

If you haven't signed up for Deb's feed, please do it today. I swear, the woman is very funny and needs your love and support. And any spare zucchini.


They like their zucchini stir fried at:

Jenn Thorson said...

Da Old Man said...

@ Mike: He certainly is :)

@ Lauren: I'm glad it's over, too. I'm thinking of having tacos or something tonight, but that would be pushing my luck.

@ Jenn: Thanks.

I see that right under "Life as I know it" is the spot where LIFE IS GOOD should fit right in alphabetically. No. You don't have to thank me. I'm just helpful that way because I'm so nice.

Kirsten said...

Bill said...

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
