Depressed about politics? Let’s have another Caption Contest!

This is the 31st world-famous FOTM Caption Contest!

Here’s the pic (h/t our own DCG). The photo is of retiring Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass) checking in at the Marriott Hotel in Charlotte, NC, for the Democratic National Convention. The photo is NOT a photoshop. It was taken by Don Carrington, and posted by RickHenderson on the website John Locke Foundation on September 3, 2012.

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 Saturday, September 29, 2012.

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

“Biden said Romney will put us all back in chains, so my BDSM master says I’ll soon get to wear a nice shiny chainlink collar instead of this stinky old belt!”

For the winner of our last caption contest, go here!

  1. “Yes, I asked for the S&M suite that adjoins Congresswoman Schultz’s “

  2. “My boyfwends don’t like my Porky Pig voice, so this makes me talk like a wheel man”.

  3. I”m Mrs Fwank, get it?

  4. “Ethcuth me, Mith, but could you please wetweeve my purse from the hotel thafe, ’cause I accidentally left the keys to this darned padlock in it.”


  5. It looks like Barney had one belt too many at the bar before checking in.

  6. Has Jim Ready checked in yet?

  7. Thought this hotel said it has room service?
    Doesn’t pant’s on the ground say “I’m ready”?

  8. FOTM’s Joan just brought to my attention that the belt around Barney’s neck may be for a medical purpose, like a neck brace. I did a Google search for images of neck brace but found nothing resembling this belt.

    Does anyone know if the belt Frank is wearing is a neck brace? If it is a medical device, then it is wrong and cruel of us to make fun of it, and I will remove this post. Thanks.

    • Terry and I both conducted searches on the net for “Barney Frank neck brace”. We found NOTHING that indicates Frank had a medical reason to wear that belt around his neck.

      I searched for “Barney Frank health” — all I got were links to BF and health care reform. I searched for “Barney Frank neck” — NOTHING on him having neck problems or spinal problems or neck surgery.

      We both found a gay site where commenters seem convinced the pic was photoshopped.

      To conclude, since we found no evidence that BF was wearing the belt for a medical reason, I’m keeping this pic as our 31st Caption Contest pic — photoshop or not!

      • There is no medical necessity for this type of homemade (or possibly non-medical erotica manufacturer-made) device. It would be medically harmful rather than helpful. With the belt sticking out so far into his line of vision, it could lead to accidents and injuries.

  9. Did a little looking around for other photos of this and all I have to say is that IF this was photoshopped it is the best I’ve seen. All of the photos I saw I blow up as far as I could, down to pixel levels. If you know anything about it you can find very clear cut lines some where with the item being shopped in. I could fine none. This is real IMO

    • Thank you, Gunny Sgt!

      Having done our research on this pic, we will now proceed with this pic for our Caption Contest — with a clear conscience.

  10. “Frankly Charlotte, I don’t give a damn.”

  11. I wanna report a boom on my rug.

  12. I’m looking for my master, Lord Satan. Oh, excuse me. You probably have him registered under Barack Obama.

  13. Can you send someone up to buckle me?

  14. Barney always said he would lose his head if it wasn’t attached, with a belt…
    i gotta say Brolin’s caption is too cute, he’s a real pistol… 😉

  15. “Barf”—-er, uh, “Arf” !

  16. “Tighter, pull it tighter!” (Caption from hotel employee, not Barney)

  17. I really need for this desk clerk to get me checked in. I am so “excited” that my belt has moved up around my neck and is choking me. I just want to scream out “I’m ready”! I hope Tingles is here.

  18. For God’s Sake, Dr. Eowyn, can you please tell us who was born in 1874 from your “Who Am I”? Now, I’ll have a beer.

  19. Itw as not a contest – just “Who Am I”. Hints included: Born in 1874, only boy with 3 sisters. Wore his sisters hand-me-downs. Married a daughter of a polictian. Some answers were Rockefeller, Hoover and Churchill.

  20. Gotcha! I’m the idiot. I will find out who was born in 1874. Thanks for putting me straight!
