Creative Captioning: Ripa's Santa Reaction

By Liz Kelly

By now you know the drill. I post a picture with humor potential and you, dear readers, provide the humor. Today's subject is the sweetheart of morning talk TV, Kelly Ripa, who had an interesting encounter with Santa Claus on Monday at New York's Cartier store:

What, I wonder, has Santa done to prompt such a spirited response from the diminutive dynamo? You tell me. The best of the best will be highlighted on Monday here in the blog and the very tippy top wit will be treated with all deference accorded to an Official Celebritology Captionologist. Remember, keep it clean. Santa doesn't like naughty.

Whoa, Santa, that better be a candy cane in your pocket!

Because Kelly won't take no for an answer, Santa opens a new account at TD Bank.

Santa, did you hear me? I SAID I NEED SOME MORE NEW ELECTROLUX APPLIANCES!

Yes, Kelly, there is a Santa Claus.

Mark, I can't believe you just plopped me on top of that Salvation Army bucket. Just wait 'til we get home, mister!

Bad Santa. Bad Bad BAD Santa!

Santa, let's talk about those split ends. Fortunately for you, I use Tressant Supreme. Great conditioning, and just a touch of crack cocaine to get me through the day! [Apologies to SNL]

"Ha! Regis! Told ya Santa would forgive me for "Hope and Faith!""

Here Santa, discussing the Killers new track on Regis, explains to Kelly that she is Human and not Dancer... Dancer is a reindeer.

Santa, help! Clay Aiken is trying to cover my mouth. Stop him, ya big red lug!

Whoa, Reege, I had the scariest dream. I was Hayley Vaughan and back on the "All My Children" set sucking up to Susan Lucci during December.

Santa just told her he was not bringing her another endorsement contract this year.

Outraged, Kelly says "That is not what I meant, Santa, when I said I wanted to see the North Pole!".

(Sorry Liz--guess I'm on the naughty list, and if Nick Lachey is Santa, he's alright with that.)

Posted by: hodie | November 25, 2008 11:30 AM | Report abuse

Is that the North Pole, or are you just happy to see me?

Ripa: Snow? That is not the white powder that powers MY sleigh!

Ripa recoils from what she fears most: wrinkles.

"Santa I have to ask, how do manage to make the toys, visit a billion homes in one night and still make time for Mrs Claus? Because I gotta tell you I'm about to go postal on Regis!"

So apparently I can't tell the difference between Ryan Seacrest and Clay Aiken. Sigh. Caption corrected and re-submitted:

"REEEEEEGE! REEEEEEEGE! I found a substitute for Clay Aiken! And I know EXACTLY where his hands have been!"

Kelly's expression gives new meaning to the term "stocking stuffer."

I need a little Christmas RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE!

Do you hear what I hear?!

All I want for Christmas is my two front caps.

(Bawlmer, you inspired me -- anyway, you were probably safe with Ryan, too, I'd imagine. But since we're amending earlier comments:)

All I want for Christmas ARE my two front caps.

Gasp! Santa, I'm not sure "straddle" is the way I'm supposed to sit on your lap! Hey! Regis! He wants me to do our backstage warm up ... are you OK with that?!?

... and then I was on the naughty list ;)

Yes, Kelly, there really is a Santa Clause and right now it looks like he is groping your backside.
