Let The Judgement Begin - Double, Super Secret Edition
I know you think I've forgotten, but I haven't. I was just waiting for the VD edition to run it's course, as well as giving time for any other thoughts on the first picture, before moving along. As usual, you guys were on top of your game. This was excruciatingly fun.
So, on to the judgements and old business:
First up, to refresh your memory -
Again, landing in the number one slot is frequent flyer for "Save the planet!" (pant) "Save the planet!" (pant) "Save the planet!" (pant)........."
Second place goes to Yu-Ain Gonnano's "And here we have an example of the tiny equipment that typically gets laughs.
Also pictured, a racing scooter."
And, bringing up the rear, because she flounces oh so well, is our own Blog Princess for "Secretary Kerry! Is that you???"
That's the first of our double, super secret judgements.
And now, the second judgement:
Again, a refresher -
Appearing out of the mists of Mordor to snatch first place this week is Frodo with, "Angry after the other chickens ridiculed his beret, Clive took his bottle and left."
Second place goes to our ever-inventive spd rdr for "Jacques' long slide into dunkenness and debauchery began when Henriette decamped for America with the devil-may-care Road Runner."
And grabbing the last spot for this week is afe for his recruiting poster-esque "Is new recruiting poster pour la militaire Francaise! I want YOU to be le big chicken en l'armee de Republique!
L'amee c'est tres moderne, with latest beret jaunty styles straight from Prada and Hermes! Le kit standarde por le poilu includes cigarette holder natty, and le vin grande reserve, pour la esprit insouciant utmost!
Be the chicken biggest you can be en L'Armee Francaise!"
Best Walk Down Memory Lane, and also Longest Caption Explanation, goes to frequent flyer for "Maybe you have to be a certain age--but does anyone else remember Arte Johnson from Laugh-In as the yellow raincoat clad adult on a tricycle? The 5-second clip would always show him stopping and tipping over.
(Gary Owens)--'Here's the news ABOUT the news--without which it wouldn't BE the news--In the news of the future, Laugh-In was re-launched in a bid to save the failing NBC network. Here's an updated version of Arte Johnson looking ridiculous--practicing his old routine.'
Found a clip of Arte Johnson on his trike http://www.timvp.com/laughin30.jpg"
Best Obscure Political Reference Coupled with a Delicious Recipe belongs to spd rdr for "Security cameras picked up fugitive secrets-leaker Edward Snowden shortly before being was apprehended yesterday attempting to sneak across the Turkish border from Russia using a fraudulent French passport. Mr. Snowden is being "processed through normal channels" and will be "made available about dinner time" said government spokesman Tavuk Izgara."
And, finally, best Obscure Song Reference (and bonus points will be awarded to anyone who can name the musical from whence it comes), the Blog Princess', "Cluck, be a lady toniiiiiiiiiiiiight!"
That's it, villains! You've been judged and found most hilarious.
A new caption contest is forthcoming.
