New Yorker Anti-Cap Contest #466





WINNERS

FIRST PLACE (TIE)
Who knew we could order 12 midget hookers and both pay and enjoy them under the table!"--NJ-to-TX (JUDGE'S COMMENT: This somehow manages to be stupid and brilliant. Who better than midget hookers to give you a little head?)
"Welcome to the first meeting of the Boogers Appreciation Society."--NJ-to-TX (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Gross and juvenile, yet undeniably brilliant in a Anti-cap sort of way. Will there be a second meeting? NJ-to-TX  reaffirms his stature as the Alpha Dawg Anti-Capper. )
SECOND PLACE
"Well, HERE'S your problem."--Evan (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Something a mechanic would say, we can all agree. Works best if you assume these people are the quality control team for an office furniture company.)
HONORABLE MENTIONS
"I'm haunted by the laces of my victims."
--Jim Cavanaugh (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Good use of a classic. Nice one Jim!)

"...because the last time al got us together he went "yard" on Giancarlo's head."--Anonymous (JUDGE'S COMMENT: NOT a reference to me, I am happy to say. This re-calls the memorable line from the “Untouchables.” With baseball season on the horizon it seems perfect.)
"Worst. Circle jerk. Ever."--Steve_O (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Second worst. Don't forget our little contest here.)

New Yorker Anti-Caption Contest #465




NOTE: Judging and comments  for this contest are guaranteed to be 100% authentic. --  al in la   


WINNERS

FIRST PLACE
"I use Jews for these patch jobs because I'm anti-cementic."--Anonymous (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Are they union jews at least? This could easily make the list of most offensive Anti-Caps ever seen here. It is also one of the best puns EVER since in history!)
SECOND PLACE
"And this is where we tread on the upturned faces of the proletariat..."--Evan (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Insightful political commentary, probably based on a quote from Marx or something. If the people water-sking saw the galley-slaves rowing their asses off, we would achieve a more egalitarian society. I have always said that. )
THIRD PLACE
"Okay, now close it!"--NJ-to-TX (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Too perfect! Short, sadistic, nonsensical...and remarkably enough, funny. Extra credit: You know the two suits are about to get splayed with human goo.)

HONORABLE MENTIONS
"It's their fucking fault, not ours."--Anonymous (JUDGE'S COMMENT: And vivid and pointed reminder that in the corporate jungle, shifting blame is a crucial survival skill. Also, please note: This is only one of three caps out of 40 entered  to evoke the f-word. That's kind of fucked-up.)
I am haunted by the faces of my victims, until this afternoon when the contractor comes and fills this is--.JohnnyB (JUDGE'S COMMENT: First thing I thought of when I saw this cartoon was “I'll bet JohnnyB, goes with a haunted by the faces of my victims...” cap. And boom! Here it is! The finish is little lame but realistically, where else were you going to with this? Thanks for your continued contributions here JB. Like a cocker spanel who only wants to be groomed by the guy who has been doing it for years, I know you find new judges scary. I'm here for you J.B. )

"In Russia, crack smokes you."--REX (JUDGE'S COMMENT: The little squiggly lines over their heads make it look they are indeed smoldering...so this seems okay. )
"This stuff happens when you work for Black Diamond Bay."--NJ-to-TX (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Count on the Anti-Capper whose screen name evokes the two crappiest states in the country to provide our requisite Dylan mention. Included in this great song off the album "Desire" is one of my favorite Dylan verses of all time:

I was siting home alone one night in LA
Watching old Cronkite on the seven o'clock news
It seems there was an earthquake that
Left nothing but a Panama hat
And a pair of old Greek shoes
Didn't seem like much was happening
So I turned it off and went to grab another beer
Seems like every time you turn around
There's another hard-luck story that you're gonna hear
And there's really nothing anyone can say
And I never did plan to go anyway
To Black Diamond Bay.)

So..Kid, you say you want to judge the anti-cap contest uh? Come on in and meet some of our regulars: Johnny B, boneguy, Tim H. and his wife Kathy. What'd you say your name was again, kid?

An instant new classic--JohnnyB (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Hired to be fired, I suppose.  Truth be told, I was the originator of this highly insightful cap. [I shit you not.] I threw it in the stew when I saw the three magicians a couple of weeks back. Someone had hi-jacked my contest and coughed up results. I was like, "Sure, okay. I guess."  Truth is, when I went to the Anti-Cap today, I half-expected that someone else might have rendered results. This has been the case in the past two weeks, but it would seem the interloper is has already lost interest. I thought now would be a good time to toss in my two-cents. You know! Start my come-back! You see, much the way I really , really want to do the anti-cap, work out more [Alright! Workout!] and take those five huge bags of empties in the garage back to the re-cycling place...I can never seem to find the time. Even so, it may interest some people this silly little blog consistently gets 100 visits a day. So I'm easing my way back in.)

ANTI-CAP CONTEST FLASH-BACK: MAY. 2014

"Yeah that's right. I need a load of your shit. Whatever you can spare. You see, I judge this contest and I ran out of things to say about the entries so…"

[NOTE: This anti-cap from Contest # 430 is the only one I have ever entered under my actual fake name. Conclude from it what you will, but you have to admit it's pretty fucking funny. Also, I think the fact that I didn't pick it as the winner, suggests I have integrity. ]
