explaining Dennis Rodman as U.S. ambassador

Standard

Recently Dennis Rodman met with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, and then he went to Rome to hopefully meet with the new Pope.  I haven’t heard a valid explanation of how this could’ve happened.  Rodman was a basketball star in the NBA years ago, but is he famous in North Korea?  Or did he achieve this meeting with some shuckin’ and jivin’?  Either way, no one knows.  But this picture below might be the best explanation I’ve heard thus far.

caption contest, tough guy

Standard

It’s time for another caption contest!  (Well, past time, but my schedule has been somewhat discombobulated lately.)

This week’s picture features a guy who is looking tough (or at least trying to).  There’s no background info, so you’ll have to use your imagination.  You can create circumstances however you see fit — whether with current events or in the past, whether he’s part of a singing group or a long-lost relative or even one of your friends.  (I have a feeling Mango-Man will be brought into this one…)  Other ideas: what is he thinking?  What does his friends think?  What is his job?  The only rules are to make it funny and keep it clean.  Have fun!

caption contest, Darth Vader and Ronald McDonald

Standard

This week our caption contest features two famous celebrities — Darth Vader and Ronald McDonald.  Why are they together?  That’s a good question.  Hopefully you can think up some good answers.  🙂  Of course, even if you don’t contribute a funny answer, you can read what others have come up with.

Who wouldn’t want a flamethrower?

Standard

I have my computer setup to rotate through a certain folder of pictures for my wallpaper, and recently this was the picture:

Click image for a larger version (which makes a great wallpaper).

My wife came in the room, and I pointed to this and said I want one of these for Christmas.  Without missing a beat, she asked, “What would you do with it?”  I figured I shouldn’t get too elaborate (because that might concern her), so I said, “To burn stuff.”  Vague, I know, but women seem to not appreciate things like flamethrowers…  I don’t get it — how could it not be awesome?  There’s no shortage of ideas that would be awesome to try if I had a flamethrower (especially a military-grade flamethrower like the one shown above).

What would you do if you had a flamethrower?

caption contest, chicken offering food to accordion player

Standard

This week’s caption contest may be late, but at least it’s here.  It shows a person in a chicken costume offering food to a man playing an accordion.  As usual, I have no idea what’s supposed to be going on here, so just make something up.

caption contest, guy watching professional cleanup crew

Standard

Another week, another caption contest.  This week’s photo features an older guy watching what looks like professional cleaners or a HAZMAT team or scientists.  These guys have masks and air tanks, so it looks serious.  Yet the older man doesn’t appear concerned.  So who knows what’s going on?  It’s up to you to write the story behind this picture.  Remember, you can frame the context however you want, so the sky’s the limit.  Have fun!

caption contest, Santa parade in NYC

Standard

For this week’s caption contest, we’re going to feature a Christmas / holiday themed picture.  Here is a parade of Santa Clauses, walking down the street in New York City.  (NEW YORK CITY?!?)  So what is the purpose of it?  Is there a special occasion, or is it a secret mission?  Is it a conspiracy?  What are the onlookers thinking?  What should be done about this situation?
