Epic Caption Contest (Updated)

This may just be the best Crowd Noise Caption Contest photo yet:

Did he tap that? Can I say "tap that" on a family newspaper's Web site? We shall see. . . (Larry Downing -- Reuters)

From Reuters' Olympic blog:

The United States are favourite [heh heh, they spell favorite funny] in both the men's and women's tournament and the president popped by to wish them good luck. He was not expecting to be made to actually play, nor to be proffered a pert buttock to pat.

The possibilities are endless. Seriously. Have at it.

UPDATED: You may have noticed that a bunch of comments have been taken down. I thought it went without saying that the one and only rule of this contest is to keep it clean. And no, thinly-veiled innuendos do not count as keeping it clean.

Look, I don't want to be a downer, but this is a family Web site. Show some [bleeeep] respect! Do it for the kids!

I am by no means a George W. Bush fan, but I disagree with all the liberal blogs that he was embarrassing the country on this trip with his behavior. I thought he was playing around and generally having a good time. He was a good sport when he got pranked at the softball practice, and I think it was kind of neat that he got to run the Mountain Biking course given that he's spent the past 8 years becoming more proficient at mountain biking than, you know, leading the free world.

All of that said, I'm fairly certain the caption should read, "President Bush instructs Olympians on a proper terrorist fist jab."

That reminds me, I need to call the Democrats about their energy plan.

How about, " Thanks, but I love my wife and she makes me happy. You should have offered that to the last President".

"So you dig things out of the sand for a living? Can I interest you in a Green Zone diplomatic position? You'd instantly be more qualified than three-quarters of our staffers. No, you wouldn't have to wear any more clothing than you are now..."

ALTERNATIVE: President Bush: "Misty's apparently a bad girl"

SECOND ALTERNATIVE: (singing) "I get Misty...just patting that rump..."

Posted by: Lindemann | August 10, 2008 7:33 PM

BETTER VERSION OF FIRST ALTERNATIVE (I should plan harder): "We have conclusive evidence that Misty's been a bad girl. The President is giving the situation his personal attention and is expected to have completely addressed the issue within five minutes."

BTW, when are innuendos anything other than thinly veiled? Does anyone ever chide someone for employing an innuendo that was excessively thickly veiled? And you never hear about the fabric in the veil covering the innuendo - is it see-thru, lace, cotton, wool, what? I think we need a new phrase to describe innuendos and their level of concealment from their hearers.

[/planning harder]

@ Lindemann: Touche, friend.

@ CL: Please tell me you've seen the "Tramp Stamp" episode of "How I Met Your Mother."

James Dobson's "Krunk Beach Party For Neo-Puritanism" drew huge crowds on Sunday. The President was in attendance and was captured in this photo kindly brushing abrasive sand from a feeble woman's sensitive skin. On a beach blanket nearby, Ted Haggard and Larry Craig smoked cigarettes after a long afternoon of wheelbarrow racing with contemporary Christian boy bands.

The "Tramp Stamp" episode of "How I Met Your Mother" is awesome. Every episode of "How I Met Your Mother" is awesome. On another note, in looking at the picture, I think there may already be a tramp stamp there.

Now, in order to avoid the obvious:

"You know, alligator wrestling should be an Olympic sport. This is how I would do it."

The Political:

"When in China..."

And of course, my favorite:

"This is what you get when you mess with Texas."

That will have to suffice until I get back home to Bonita.

Now, pretend your top is Southern Russia, and your bottom piece is Georgia, and this slapping motion is what Russian tanks are doing in South Ossetia.

Whoever quoted Grabthar is my hero. Now and forever.

F-ing brilliant, sir. Well played.

Posted by: P Diddy | August 13, 2008 1:43 AM

Yep, that's about the right height.

On the other hand, I will need a bunch of phonebooks for you, Ms. Walsh.

For the gentlemen up here:
Lindsay Czarniak or Lindsay Applebaum?
Posted by: Alex35332 | August 13, 2008 2:04 PM

Definitely Bonita, by a wide margin.

Czarniak is last year's version of hot - now just lukewarm.
