The Judges have Spoken

In a very close decision, the judges at Crotchety Old Man World Wide Headquarters and Discount House of Worship made the tough choice.
This was the biggest contest yet, with 50 entries. The judges had to put in overtime to reach a concensus. And they did.

Before we announce the winner of the first caption contest of the Obama Administration, it is necessary to give props to all those who racked up points. John, Rubba, Jormen, Lord Loser, Reforming Geek, Jenn, Humorsmith, Staci, and Marvel all scored.

"Dude, how long have we been passed out"?
MA Fat Woman

She wins the Zucchini, along with 500 entrecard credits.


A very close second place went to Kevin John, and Paul was third.

I'm still waiting for the Crotchety Old Lady to get her camera all set up with the stupid batteries. I'm making a list of stuff to take pictures of so youse can go with me on a photo journal trip through Central New Jersey, and, of course, get to see the legendary Rutherford B Hayes kidney stone.

Congrats to the winner! I'm ready for that kidney stone. That will make my day. Make sure you send a copy to the White House. I'm sure Obama will be interested.

Congrats to the winner... I'm totally surprised Rubba didn't win with his caption about only four more years until Obama goes home. Just wanted to let Rubba know that one actually made me laugh so hard liquid came out of my nose. ~grins~

Congrats to MA Fat Woman and you for running the coolest and most popular caption contest around these parts. And that's a lot of parts.

Congrats to the winner. My head was empty for this one (no comments from the peanut gallery here).

Someday I will have a good one, I hope.

Chat Blanc said...

Woohoo!! Way to go MAF Woman! :) It was another great contest Crotchety! I'm sorry I shamed myself with a lame-o entry. ;)

Harry Yack said...

Aw, c'mon! With all due respect to the winner, I certainly think there were many better entries. I want a recount! :)

Congratulations MA!

And a belated Congrates @ Don during last weeks (rigged) decision.


I'm gonna win the Mega Lottery before I win this...

Gianetta said...

Thanks! Would you believe that caption was based on a true story? Just stick some boobs on those men and you got me and one of my friends on a weekend getaway about 20 years ago.

Da Old Man said...

@ Michelle: I read it. :(
Get better quickly.

@ Sandee: Have a great weekend.

@ Kirsten: I know. Usually you are so good at these

@ Petra: I'm not saying anything. Snickering a little, but not a word

@ Chat: There is always next Wednesday

@ Hindley: I have a panel of judges, and they all vote. I use a point system to choose the winner.

@ Kevin John: You came in a very close second.

@ MA: When you write that story, let me know. It sounds hilarious.

As soon as I saw MA Fat Woman's caption, I knew she would win.
