New Yorker Anti-Caption Contest #417
















WINNERS

FIRST PLACE (Tie)
"Giant Pufferfish shuts down the GW bridge!"--Dr Sumguy
FIRST PLACE (Tie)
"Time for a little traffic problem in Fort Lee!"--Dr Sumguy (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Two caps referencing a recent news event that was simultaneously amusing and infuriating. It seems the governor of New Jersey took a page from the Tony Soprano playbook. To exact some payback from an under-boss who won't play ball, traffic was snarled in North Jersey and thousands where inconvenienced. Those of us who long ago concluded that Chris Christie is equal measures arrogant thug and loathsome douche bag, where not surprised by “Bridge-Gate.” Sure it was nice to see Crispy Cream humiliated, but we're left to wonder how much shit that screws up our lives is calculated by corrupt assholes with power. We can only wonder.)
SECOND PLACE
"What did you expect Christie to look like after the surgery?"--NJ-to-TX (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Maybe this is just piling on. But Christie thought if he lost a few pounds he could ease himself into the White House. Fat chance. )
HONORABLE MENTIONS
"Don't worry. He's just passing through on his way to Octopi Wall Street."--Tim H (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Clever but dated. The OWS movement was old news even back when this was posted. Still, this ranks among the top caps ever entered by Tim H [Talk about damning with faint praise.])

Murder Ink.--Anonymouse (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Clever, but lazy. An Octopus discharges an ink-like substance as a defense measure. Murder, Inc. [or Murder Incorporated] is what they called Mafia enforcers in the '30s '40s. It a good pun but it just sits there looking at you. )

It's Evrolet Girl's clitoris!--Levon Delight (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Kind of tacky, but it gets props because it recalls an Anti-Cap classic.)
That trucker is deader than this contest!--boneguy (JUDGE'S COMMENT: For all the wit and cunning displayed by boneguy through many Anti-Caps, he can sure get cranky.)
Like al says, "The thing is probably hungry. Who am I to judge?"--boneguy (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Here's what al says: Whether in the wild or in the civilized world, an act of violence often has no ancillary benefit for the perpetrator.)

Dr Sumguy said...

"Looks like an Octomom backlash against her newest 'Welfare Fraud Charge'!"

Dr Sumguy said...

"What does Octomom and the Holland Tunnel have in common ... They're both underwater!"

"Everybody waned them! Fist it was "Killer Bee's". Now this, but oh no, we gotta have a cure for cancer and a cure for old age."

Don Emigholz said...

"It's a Shima all right". (Short for FUK-U-Shima; where we get it real good and there is not a thing to be done about it.)
