. . . for FOTM’s 199th Caption Contest!
I had long hesitated using this pic for a caption contest because it’s so demonic. But you, our readers, surprised me with your very clever submissions, which persuaded me that the way to deal with such depravity is mockery.
The writers of FOTM voted for what each considered to be the best (#1) and second-best (#2) captions. Each #1 vote is worth 4 points; a #2 vote is worth 2 points.
And the winner of the 199th FOTM Caption Contest, with two #1 votes and two #2 votes, totaling 12 points, is . . .
Here is the winning caption:
Silhouette is in 2nd place, with two #1 votes and 8 points. Here’s the caption:
A phrenologist’s worst nightmare.
Goldbug (with two #2 votes) and Lou Minati, Mirl and William (each with one #1 vote) are in 3rd place, with 4 points each. Here are their respective captions:
Goldbug: “My sweetie and I are running for President 2020. We’re gonna’ make America beyond belief again.”
Lou Minati: “In a move designed to better appeal to their core viewers, CNN recently introduced their new morning anchor team.”
Mirl: “We were wearing our MAGA hats and the last thing we remember was a van with the initials DNC on the side pulling up next to us.”
William: “(sigh)..The things you see when you don’t have your rifle”
Kevin Lankford, pigpen51 and redneck are in 4th place, each with one #2 vote and 2 points. Here are their captions:
Kevin Lankford: “Finally!…A face even a mother can’t love.”
pigpen51: “Hey! I remember that Twilight Zone episode!”
redneck: “Kill it…..with fire”
WELL DONE, EVERYONE!
Here is your super-duper Award of Excellence, all ready for framing!
