Caption winner and an award

Before I announce the winner, it may be necessary to read this

Very few captioners knew what it was, so not only do we get to have fun, but we learn all kinds of important cultural stuff.

Anyway, I had to explain it to the staff, as they were equally befuddled. But they still laughed and enjoyed all the captions.

The staff at Crotchety Old Man World Wide Headquarters and Discount House of Worship really giggled at captions from The Queen, Nonamedufus, Douglas, Joel, MooooooG, Rubba, Dani, Joel, Bryant, Dizzblnd, Dani, and LL.

But only one could caption a picture like this:

The Golden Enema Award goes to Richard Gere.
Me-Me King

Second place was Nonamedufus, and third was The Queen.

She wins the Zucchini Award, along with 500 EC credits and the adulation of the blogosphere.

Thanks to everyone who participated making this another great week.

And the blog received an award from Chuck at
Secondary Roads

The award is presented to bloggers just for "being there," so to speak.

I'd like to share this award with Grace (The Broadway Matron) and Michelle (Raw Cool) both just because I enjoy their blogs.

LL said...

Wow... I got votes and didn't even mean for that to be a caption... just giving my thoughts on the matter. Congrats MeMe!

Marie said...

You know, I thought that is what it was and then I thought, naaaahhhhhh.

As a nurse, I cannot imagine anyone who has ever administered an enema actually celebrating the fact.

But then...it is Russia. I guess compared to, say, Stalin, an enema is nothing.

Not only that, but I agree that Richard Gere seriously needs a Golden Enema.
