Caption Hunt

Published 13 years, 11 months ago

Over the last two days, some… odd pictures of the President and his new appointees have made the rounds.  Here they are:

I could use some cheering up, so if you’d like to help out, write funny captions for one or both pictures.  Extra credit for captions that don’t make sex jokes.  (Anything really foul will be deleted.  You have been warned.)

For those who wish to contribute two captions, I think we’ll be daringly original and refer to the first picture (of Bush and Rice) as #1, and the second (of Bush and Spellings) as #2.  Got it?  Great.  Knock yourselves out.

    Eric’s Archived Thoughts: Caption Hunt – Eric Meyer asked for captions, so I’d thought I’d take a crack. Firs picture: (Bush thinking) “Maybe she knows how to make peace with nations… cause I kinda screwed up last term”. The second: (S…

  4. #1: Watch how Mr. Bush doesn’t move his lips … almost.

    #2: “We must lower our expectations of the President.” Bush:”Pfft, can they GET lower?”

  5. #1
    Ahh, so that what detante means. I thought it meant strike first.

    #2
    Gotta magic trick for ya, watch the tissue… Bush,”Oh I like this trick…”

    1. I gotta ask her what shampoo she uses.
    2. I’d like to see her try to do kung fu with those cuffs!
    1. Rice smiles, as Bush struggles to find the funny.
    2. Spellings: “We intend to level the playing field in schools across America.” Bush, to self: “He he he he. Good thing Spellings wasn’t around when I got ‘accepted’ to Yale.”
  6. #1 After a night watching the Godfather, Bush tries out his new gold leaf garotte

    #2 …and when I was an intern I placed my hands on his knees like this…

  7. 1. Psst, George, I just squeezed out a raunchy one.

    2. The both of you, you’re fired!

  8. #1 [Bush] …but, wait… wasn’t she bald?
    #2 [Bush] There it comes, that funniest Teletubbies dance!

  9. #2: “yeah, but I shoot with this hand.”

  10. #1) “Swell! Now I can afford that orthodontist to get rid of this silly gap in my teeth!”

    #2) “Is *this* how you do it, Mr. President? Is this how you walk like an Egyptian?”

  11. #1[Bush] She’s taller than she was yesterday.

    #2[Spellings] So you see there are two separate internets, right?

  12. #1: She sings really nice, doesn’t she?
    #2: This black-box is totally invisible!

  13. #1 Taking to heart the adage that two heads are better than one, President Bush and now Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice have been surgically conjoined. Liberal America hopes that, combined, they’ll make half the man a Sharpton or a Kucinich makes.

    #2 “President” Bush smiles on his first day as an Airforce One Flight Attendant Trainee, a proud day for him, as “Vice President” Cheney has never afforded him such responsibility.

  14. Caption 1: Bush ~ “Gottle of Geer, Gottle of Geer”
    Caption 2: Bush ~ “Oooooh she’s gonna do a trick. Uhuhuh I looooove tricks”

  15. #1 Rice – “Beige… I think I’ll paint the ceiling beige…”
    #2 Spellings – “Now remember, President Bush doesn’t think that fast so you will all need to alk a little slower… So, any questions?”

  16. #1 Rice – “Oooh! I need some new furniture, that tacky carpet in the oval office has to go, and we’ll need to replace all those pictures of former Presidents with pictures of my favorite person.. Me!”

    Bush – “She won’t do my typing, refuss to do the filing, not to mention the laundry… and we won’t go into what she said when I asked her to buy me lunch. Just what have I gotten myself into???”

    #2 Spellings – “We’ll when we’re done leveling out Iraq we’re going to pave it all and turn it into the world’s largest strip mall complete with a Wal-Mart Supercenter, Sam’s Club and my personal favorite store, Dress Barn Woman! Oh! Don’t foget the tanning sallon, JC Penny, and of course for the kiddies Toys ‘R Us…”

    Bush – “Oh I could have fun in Toys ‘R Us… they haven’t seen spending until they’ve seen me ransack a Toys ‘R Us”

  17. #1 – “And the Bush said ‘Wanna be Sec. of State?” and I wa like “no Way!” and he was like “Yes way!”

    #2 – “Let me demonstrate for the teacher how this move works… First, you grab the child by the shoulders the you shake him…”

  18. 1) Mr. President, Turn that frown upside down. Remember, you’re a person and people, um…. like you.

    2) This is not the president you’re looking for, move along.

    Eric, you’ve got the same title attribute for both pictures

  19. #1 Rice: …and I asked him: “Who will advise you, if I grab the office?”
    #2 Spellings: …and I soothed him: “Don’t worry, all your screwed up exams are forgotten”.

  25. #1:
    “Who can turn the world on with her smile?
    Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
    Well it’s you girl, and you should know it
    With each glance and every little movement you show it

    Love is all around, no need to waste it

  28. #2: you must be this tall to enter the Oval Office.

    bush: “whew”

  29. #2 “And we’ve found that, if you lower the standards, then no children will be left behind.”

  30. For #2: During a press conforence, newly appointed Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings demonstrates her new reforms for the public high schools. “Little bunny foofoo hopping through the forest, picking up bullfrogs and bumping them on the head!”

    Bush “Must not fart, must not fart, geez I hope I’m not talken
    outloud”

  35. 2) Secretary of Education nominee Margaret Spellings fails to use Force Powers to throw lightning at reporters, gets mocked by Bush. Spellings later commiserates with fellow trainee Rumsfeld.

    #2 [Bush] I made her promise she won’t give me homework! Yippee!

  45. #2 “Simmer down, now! Just simmer down!”

  46. #2 Bush: “Is that a St. John’s wort or a regular wort?”

  52. #1: President Bush shows off his ventriloquism skills. Note the almost lifelike expression on the NSA dummy.

    #2: Spellings reiterates the administration’s policy of “lowering the bar a little more every day.”

  53. #1 – I wonder if she’d notice if I ate that bug in her hair?

    #2 Wish I could use hand signs, it’d stop me making such a dick of myself everytime I opened my mouth.

  59. #1: “Wow, that wax dummy really does look like Condi; Madame Tussaud really knows her stuff. Maybe I can bring it around to some photo ops with me instead of Rice…it’d be about as helpful, and that way I’d save on hotel costs…”

  60. #1 Hmm. Better be careful Condi, I hear the W3C is out to get us now.

    #2 That’s right, Mr. President. Tables or DIVs can be used inspite of what you heard last night.

  61. #1 (Bush “thinking”, well… more like: to himself) I hope she won’t ask me about Pet Goat, I never really finished Pet Goat…

  62. Ahh, but the more interesting story is about all the smooching

    Check the video link below the picture on the right side of the article. Bush must really fancy Spellings — they nearly go lip-to-lip.

    1. “How do you spell d1Pl0mAcY?”, Condi. “Hot damn! I bet she knows how to spell d!PL0m@cY!”, W.
    2. “Well, you see just for giggles they had one prison come up behind the other with his hands just like this butt naked of course, and then take another step forward, and forward, and forward, then back and forward, and back and forward” W., “Damn I’m gonna have to slip in to the bathroom to take care of an issue that just popped up, but before I go visit http://www.dirtyabugradeprisonersex.com to view live web cams of prisoners re-education programs for a low fee of 19.99 hourly. Woo Hoo! Don’t mess with TEXASS!!!”
  63. #1:
    Rice: Boy, it’s great being the smartest Republican.

    2) Spelling: “paa.. dee…cake? is that it?”

  66. Didja see the photo or Martin & Bush looking in opposite directions during a photo op? It was taken by a Canadian Press photographer.
    There is a copy accomponying this Regina Leader-Post article with the following caption `U.S. President George W. Bush (foreground) and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin look in opposite directions during a photo opportunity upon Bush’s arrival at Parliament Hill in Ottawa Tuesday.’ The photo looked even better in monochrome in my local paper — it was like Germany’s two-headed eagle.

    P.S.: Your tutorial at HT’04 rocked!
