Let The Judgement Begin
Outstanding week of captioning, villains! The Blog Princess was right, it has been a challenge to judge the comments this week. Nothing that a lot of beer couldn't handle. (Yes, CAPT Mike, lots of beeeeerrrrr. heh) I'm thinking that y'all are enjoying this top 10 thing, though, by the sheer number of entries. Whatever works!
So, on to the judgement and old business:
A small review of last week's picture,
and we're off like a prom dress after the dance.
Firing up his jets and launching the judgement is frequent flyer for "On seeing Obama in the stands at the U.S. Open, Ferdinand had the same reaction as Chris Mathews--a THRILL RAN UP HIS LEG!"
Grim is doling out advice at number nine Following the Russian invasion of Crimea, John Kerry realizes he will have to pull up his big boy pants.
OBloodyHell is getting down and dirty in the eight hole with To Ferdinand's dismay, he discovered in the middle of the tourney that one of his opponents, taking a leaf from the Official Tonya Harding Playbook, swapped the club's hash brownies for ex-lax brownies.
His already none-too-illustrious career would, unfortunately, never recover.
... the tennis outfit was, of course, a total loss.
Lucky numba seven finds the ever-modest spd rdr in full projection mode "I'm humbled!" he shouted.
While YAG rounds out the bottom half and garners Obscure Movie Reference props for Say 'Hello' to my little friend.
Opening up the top half of the judgement at number five is afe with a tidbit of obscure European history that few, if anybody, knew: Losing badly in straight sets at the French Open, Jean-Pierre attempts to pull his white shorts over his head in the universal French symbol for surrender. This maneuver was first performed by French players, en masse, in response to the overwhelming play of the German 1940 doubles champions, Team Blitzkrieg.
Arriving in record time to make his next appearance at number four is frequent flyer with truly deflating news "Even while playing mixed-doubles with Maria Sharapova the frustration showed on Ferdinand's face when the Viagra STILL wouldn't work."
Claiming the bronze trivet as her own is our lovely Blog Princess, who shows her compassionate side with "7-LOVE???? I got yer 'love' right here, baby..."
And a shining silver shoe goes flinging towards Don Brouhaha for "This is the most interesting wedgie in the world!"
Bringing me to the top caption for this week. The golden stuffed marmoset for first place lands squarely in the lap of Yu-Ain Gonno for this - After an allegation of illegal equipment usage, the Head Judge asked to see the player's balls.
He immediately regretted the phrasing.
Most Cringe-Worthy caption and the latest walk down memory lane goes to frequent flyer and this low blow "Not only did Ferdinand suffer a blow to his nether regions, but he was dealt a second blow when ABCs Wide Wide World of Sports didn't use the video for its famous lead-in because it was even more violent than the fallen ski-jumper"
That's it for this week, villains! As I am coming to expect, y'all did a fantastic job.
And, MikeD? I'll leave you with Larry Bird's words: “You never make any of the shots you never take. 87% of the ones you do take, you’ll miss too.”
A new caption picture is forthcoming.

You think I'm one of the two biggest antagonists?
You *like* me, you really, really *like* me.

Y'all have already gotten me started drinking waaayyy too early today...if I'm drunk by the time MH gets home from work, I'm blaming it on you.
He hates it when I get the jump on him.
