After an extended hiatus, let’s get things back to normal by restarting the weekly caption contest. This week’s photo has a man wearing a weird-looking helmet with several military officers looking on. I really have no idea what’s going on here. Is it some secret government research? Is it a prank or joke? Is it bad fashion? It’s up to you.

Now you know why they call him Bullet Bill…
The guy behind him is about to whack his helmet with a hammer… hilarity will ensue (and much ringing).
this was that awkward moment when bill realized that his ‘fart filtration system (with activated carbon)’ did nothing to dampen the noise created, and alas, it only protected him from the smell. His coworkers were NOT impressed. his life dream, of a utopia, where he could safely break wind without fear of retribution was slowly slipping away.
Bullet Bill never did learn how to impress the ladies.
Guy in helmet: “This new helmet protects you from radiation from atomic bombs.”
Guy in back: “That would be good if we were in some futurama-type society where your severed head could still function.”

Bob’s bald spot had really grown over the previous few months.
