Let’s start the week with a Caption Contest!

This is the 18th world-famous FOTM Caption Contest!

Here’s the pic — of a young Michelle Robinson, before she became Moochelle Obama:

You know the drill:

  • The winner of the Caption Contest will get a fancy Award Certificate and a year’s free subscription to FOTM! :D
  • FOTM writers will vote for the winner.
  • Any captions proffered by FOTM writers, no matter how brilliant (ha ha), will not be considered.

The winner and runner-up will be announced on Wednesday, May 9, 2012.

To get the contest going, here’s my caption:

“Well we’re movin on up,
To the easy life.
To the deluxe White House in the sky.
We finally got a piece of the pie!”

For the winner of our last Caption Contest, go here!

H/t our beloved DCG for the pic.  :D

  28. I haven’t been to this website in a while…not surprised to see that it has degenerated into a racist, hate-filled Teabagger slime pit.

    “Moochelle?” Please. She’s far more fit than the typical Teabagger.

    • Racist? Blah, blah, blah. Got anything more original than that?

      Moochelle more fit? How, by spending taxpayer monies for her personal vacations? Yep, that fits.

    • A commenter who calls himself Cthulhu really shouldn’t throw darts because Cthulhu is a revolting monster in H.P. Lovecraft’s horror stories. From Wikipedia:

      “Cthulhu is a malevolent entity trapped in an underwater city in the South Pacific called R’lyeh. Described as being ‘…an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature…. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque scaly body with rudimentary wings’, the imprisoned Cthulhu is apparently the source of constant anxiety for mankind at a subconscious level, and also the subject of worship by a number of evil cults and other Lovecraftian monsters.”

      Now crawl back into Hell, you slimy creep.

      While I completely disapprove of Cthulhu’s wording, I also find Sage’s passage ironic and somewhat hypocritical: The members of this site have often used the Logical fallacy of Hasty Generalization, and is uniformly quick to believe and expand on information that is distorted or downright false. Pots and kettles, people, pots and kettles…

      To Cthulhu: You aren’t helping. Ranting may satisfy your base need to vent, but trolling accomplishes nothing. We are, after all, in their house, not yours. A very wise moderator on Boing Boing once pointed out that a blog room is really no different than a living room. The fact that your comment made it through moderation should tell you something.

      ps: Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn cheezburger…

      • “I also find Sage’s passage ironic and somewhat hypocritical: The members of this site have often used the Logical fallacy of Hasty Generalization, and is uniformly quick to believe and expand on information that is distorted or downright false.”

        1. How is Sage’s reply to Cthulhu “hypocritical”? Did Sage pretend to be something she isn’t. Specify. Evidence?

        2. Give examples of this site’s “Hasty Generalization” — which, by the way, is NOT a logical fallacy. To generalize is to go from the particular or instantial to an entire group or population. An example of a generalization is “All swans are white.” Hasty generalization is simply invalid or incorrect generalizing, which is an empirical mistake in that either (a) one hasn’t seen enough particulars (swans) to hastily conclude that “all swans are white,” since one may have missed black swans; or (b) the particulars one has seen are not a representative sample of the larger population, and so any statement made about the particulars cannot be applied to the larger group. So hasty generalization is an empirical fact-based mistake. There is nothing “logical fallacy” about it. A logical fallacy is something that is self-contradicting.

        3. “uniformly quick to believe and expand on information that is distorted or downright false.” Specify. Evidence? Without specification and evidence, you’ve exemplified the very thing of which you accuse us.

        4. As if you liberals don’t engage in “Hasty Generalizaton” and “distorted or downright false” information!

        To conclude:

        How IRONIC it is that your very criticisms of us actually exemplify those criticisms:

        *HASTY GENERALIZATON
        *DISTORTED OR DOWNRIGHT FALSE INFORMATION
        *HYPOCRITICAL

      • To Oleandar:

        How charming of you to chastise Cthulhu with one corner of your mouth, while expressing solidarity with him with your P.S. Lovecraftian coded message: “Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn (Cthulhu will eat us all).”

        Some would say that’s downright HYPOCRITICAL of you.

  29. Obama unmasked. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. This next position is known in French as “le cul de votre mari libéral”. Higher girls, higher!

  31. If all else fails, I’ll try out for the Rockettes!

  32. No fries on these thighs.
    No fries on these thighs.
    No fries….

  33. Bravo Dr. Eowyn and Sage! I have found that all of these ridiculous and unfounded allegations not supported by specific and substantial facts and evidence, are projections on the part of these above individuals. As you pointed out Dr. Eowyn, they are the ones guilty of their own allegations, not FOTM!

    Have these individuals ever watched late night T.V.? There are constant jokes and humor directed at political parties and political individuals! Look at Saturday Night Live! They must be extremely insecure! There are plenty of jokes directed at the right! Grow up!

  34. Joandarc,

    Could you please rephrase your statements so the persons you are indicating may understand what you are tossing up here?

    • I am referring to Oleander and Cthulhu. I do not wish to rephrase my statements. I said bravo to Sage and Dr. Eowyn in light of the dialogue. I am sorry I was not more specific when I referred to “individuals.” I thought in the context of the dialogue that it would be understood.
