1,000 Words: The Winners

Earlier this week, we asked Fixistas to offer their best caption to the photo above.

As expected, there were a fair share of height jokes (California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is not that tall) and any number of Schwarzenegger movie references.

Our winner -- "CV23" -- deftly navigated between film and politics with this offering:

"Mr. Cool meets Dr. Freeze"


Among the other highlights:

"Come with me if you want to live."

"Aren't you the teacher from Kindergarten Cop?"

Charlie Crist (in thought bubble): "Must...get in...this...picture..."

"Urged on by his colleagues, the Governator can't resist demonstrating that he can still bicep curl a good 150 pounds."

Thanks to all and be sure to check out our next "1,000 Words" post next week.

Nerd Alert! icebluebeast, while the character's name was Mr. Freeze, his "real name" was Dr. Victor Fries, as he was a cryogenic scientist. While it's technically incorrect, I can see the argument.

I wish I hadn't seen that terrible movie and didn't remember this, but it's definitely Mr. Freeze.

I found the winning post to be more obscure than deft. I must be out of the loop in Gotham City.

Wait shouldn't it be Dr. Cool meets Mr. Freeze, because Obama I think could be a Dr. and the character Arnold played was named Mr. Freeze. Or at least Mr. Cool meets Mr. Freeze, because that be the characters named. I feel like the comic store guy.
