funny pictures, episode 17

Standard

It’s been a while since I’ve posted funny pictures, so it’s way overdue.  Plus, the first one has relevance based on current world events, if you’ve heard about Russia’s “takeover” of Crimea (part of the Ukraine).  Then there’s the usual randomness.

That's a unique perspective on Russia's position these days...

They're right... I don't understand.  Anyone care to explain?

That is actually a great idea!  Granted, most people would cancel their membership instead, but the concept is great... in theory.

That's not right... and if it was intentional, that's just mean!  I understand targeted marketing, but that's just not caring about customers...

If your sweetheart wants a puppy, and this is the type of puppy she wants, then that's many bonus points.  However, be sure she wants a dog.  I've heard stories of guys who did not understand that concept, and bringing home unwanted pets will lose you many points.

I know there are tons of iAccessories for the iPhone series, but does anyone really buy this crap?  And note how easy it is to take a $600 iPhone 5 and make it look cheap and generic.

making a big splash at the Olympics

Standard

I’ve been watching some of the Olympics, and while I’m no expert in diving, I have learned that it’s best to have a small splash, if you want a high score.  But if I was one of the last divers, and my score was already too low to win, I’d do a cannonball and try to splash the judges.  I might not get a lot of points, but I’d be on highlight clips all around the world.  I might could even get to tour the talk-show circuit for doing something so crazy.

Actually, according to the website Future Update, which reports the news of the year 2028 (through the miracles of time travel), synchronized belly flops will be an Olympic sport in 2028.  If so, I’m going to enter and win!  I’m already good at that, and I wouldn’t have to practice much, except maybe gain a few more pounds…

caption contest, unfair sumo wrestling match

Standard

It’s time for another caption contest!  Since the Olympics are going on now, I’m going to feature a sports photo.  I don’t think sumo wrestling is actually in the Olympics, but perhaps it should be.  (Let your imagination run with that for a minute.)  Now, on to the picture and your captions!

here, size does matter

The rules are simple : write a caption for the photo, whatever you want (within the site’s language rules).
