New Yorker Anti-Caption Contest #449

WINNERS

FIRST PLACE
Whose idea was it to throw a Gary Gilmore themed party?--boneguy (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Gilmore, of course, was dispatched by fireing squad which, we all know, requires a wall. Somehow we're to believe this would be the basis for a party. Bottom-line: this is really stupid, just horrible, but obscure, imaginative and morbid. So...)
SECOND PLACE
Like the Doors said "You cannot partition the Lord with prayer."
And Dylan said "Everybody must get bricks." or something like that.--gfwrite (JUDGE'S COMMENT: These's a lot going on here. The partition part has merit as a smart pun, but why would he be doing it while citing a quote that says you can't?  And in this one instance the Dylan reference brings nothing to the party.)
THIRD PLACE
"Hey, Hon, hows about we play a little Krazy Kat and Ignatz?"--Kathy H (JUDGE'S COMMENT: KK was a love struck feline routinely conked on the head with brinks hurled my a mouse. It seemed stupid to me even when I was 5. And this is very politically incorrect Kathy. Shame on you.)

HONORABLE MENTIONS
You know the three little pigs is an allegory, right?--boneguy (JUDGE'S COMMENT : I always thought it was a cautionary tale and a nod to sensible building codes.)

I think there's mortar this than meets the eye--Anonymous (JUDGE'S COMMENT : There really isn't, but I feel duty bound to say “Yeah...okay.”)
"The trowelers here are obscene."
--
Jim Cavalryman (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Nice. Very nice.)

Hey, I'm not in to proving our marriage counselor wrong, so there you go.
