New Yorker Anti-Caption Contest #428













WINNERS

FIRST PLACE

He wants us to roll around in flour so I can see his face and he can find the wet spot.--boneguy (JUDGE'S COMMENT: When explaining the proper technique for making love to a woman of ample proportions, the frat guys at my school would suggest you “Roll 'em flour and fuck the wet spot.” This reminded me of that and thus recalled my youth—a simpler time of kegs parties and drunk girls of all shapes and sizes. The Zen perfection of it all.)
SECOND PLACE
"OK, I admit he is a little bit light in the loafers."--Shelly (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Appropriate for the image I suppose. A wink-wink way to say gay. You don't really hear it anymore. Had a friend who would say so-and-so was “Gay as a goose” which is a bit more heavy handed and no less well intended because he didn't mean it ina bad way.)
THIRD PLACE
"Sorry David ... We can't see you right now!"--Dr Sumguy (JUDGE'S COMMENT: It's funny because it's true. Equal measures metaphysical and literal. Probably wouldn't win the real contest. They would dismiss it as “too Far Side-ish.” )
HONORABLE MENTIONS
"Clown to the left of me, joker to the right. Here I am stuck in the middle with you."--Anonymous (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Rferences the classic song from Stealers Wheel written and sang by Gerry Rafferty. I read that the song was about Bob Dylan's reaction to an record industry party. And up until it was posted in this contest, I always thought in was “clowns” I realive now its “clown.” So there's that.)


"Every time a contest got fewer captions than the last one, more of him disappeared."--NJ-to-TX (JUDGE'S COMMENT: So begins a string of Anti-Caps that mention your Anti-Cap Judge--or lack there of. But in the cartoon it would seem he is completely invisible I'm still breathing as is the contest.)
alinla used to provide us with some pleasant diversion every week, but he seems to have disappeared lately.--james (JUDGE'S COMMENT: That's touching. Exactly the type of faint praise that compells a man to do the things he's been fixin' to do when he gets around to it.)
"al, you haven't been the same since Johnny B. left."--Anonymous (JUDGE'S COMMENT: It was like the day JFK was killed, the shuttle disaster and the night W. was elected [either time] all rolled into one. But I got over it. )
"It's al. He's not even a shadow of his old self."--Anonymous (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Comparatively speaking, I'm no better or worse then I used to be. I still toil in obscurity but I may break big any day.)

"His name's Al and apparently no one has seen him for a while."--Anonymous (JUDGE'S COMMENT: When you think about it there is nothing apparent about not seeing someone.)


"Whadya think al? Are you gonna pronounce this fucker officially dead?"
--Jim Cavanaugh (JUDGE'S COMMENT: No.)

"It would seem that Radosh.net has become completely dormant. I am committed to posting the contest here each Sunday night along with winners from the previous week. Below are this week's winners along with my two cents." - 7/10/10. --Thanks for a great four years, Al! (JUDGE'S COMMENT: How touching that someone would take the trouble to go back and get this. I feel the need to point out that it doesn't constitute a legally enforceable contract.)

"When I asked him what would he like for dinner ... He mentioned something about changing his refractive index to that of air ... I guess that means we're having leftover pot roast again!"

Dr Sumguy said...

"And the last thing he said was ... 'You're going to like the way I look; I guarantee it'!"
