Posted on April 21, 2011


Congratulations to this week’s caption contest finalists, who may remember the day they became finalists as one of the most important moments of their lives, especially if their entire lives had been uneventful disappointments.

The winner will receive the following awards:

1. A strong sense of fulfillment.  (Disclaimer: You must be the type who fulfills easily.)

2. The ability to get out of all speeding tickets.  (Disclaimer: You must also be female, pretty, and able to cry on cue.)

3. A sense your life is finally moving in the right direction.  (Disclaimer: You must be poor with directions.)

Questions to answer in the comments section:

1. Who here is the hairiest? (Is this a trick question?)

2. Who in the picture is not actually dressing up, but was noticed on the street and shepherded into the frame without knowing what was going on?

3. Are you secretly in this picture?

Homelier’n Ambrose Burnside and dumber’n a roomful McClellans! Set your muskets to virgin and grab your bayonets, because this is gonna be the ass-stabbing heard ’round the world!
