caption contest, guy acting crazy during protest

Our next caption contest features a man acting crazy with people and smoke and signs all around him.  Is it a riot?  A protest?  A parade?  A party?  A corporate fun outing gone bad?  You decide.  You could report on it like a news agency, or from the perspective of someone in the picture, or just make a related joke (even tying it into real-world events, if you can make it funny).

NFL players need our help

Since September 11, 2001, Americans have come together as never before in our generation. We have banded together to overcome adversity. We have weathered direct attacks on our own soil, wars overseas, corporate/government scandal, layoffs, unemployment, stock price plunges, droughts, fires, mad cow, SARS, high gasoline prices, and a myriad of economic and physical disasters both great and small. But now, we must come together once again to overcome one of our greatest challenges yet.

Hundreds of Professional Football players in our very own nation are going to be locked out, living at well below their seven-figure salary level. And as if that weren’t bad enough they could be deprived of their life sustaining pay for several months, possibly longer, as a result of the upcoming lockout situation. But you can help!

For only $27,080 a month, about $902.75 a day (that’s less than the cost of a large screen projection TV), you can help an NFL player remain economically viable during his time of need. This contribution by no means solves the problem as it barely covers the annual minimum salary, but it’s a start, and every little bit will help!

Although $900 may not seem like a lot of money to you, to a football player it could mean the difference between spending the lockout golfing in Florida or on a Mediterranean cruise. For you, nine hundred dollars is nothing more than a month’s rent, a mortgage payment, or a month of medical insurance, but to a football player, $900 will partially replace his daily salary. Your commitment of less than $900 a day will enable a player to buy that home entertainment center, trade in the year-old Lexus for a new Ferrari, or enjoy a weekend in Rio.

HOW WILL I KNOW I’M HELPING?

Each month, you will receive a complete financial report on the player you sponsor. Detailed information about his stocks, bonds, 401(k), real estate, and other investment holdings will be mailed to your home. Plus, upon signing up for this program, you will receive an unsigned photo of the player lounging during the lockout on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean (for a signed photo, please include an additional $150). Put the photo on your refrigerator to remind you of other peoples’ suffering.

HOW WILL HE KNOW I’M HELPING?

Your NFL player will be told that he has a SPECIAL FRIEND who just wants to help in a time of need. Although the player won’t know your name, he will be able to make collect calls to your home via a special operator in case additional funds are needed for unforeseen expenses.

Remember, a lifestyle is a horrible thing to waste…

funny remix of Deck the Halls

Recently I went to a free concert by the Conway Men’s Chorus, and they performed a funny version of Deck the Halls (Fa La La La) where they incorporated various other songs in with it, in a way you wouldn’t expect.  It’s in the video below, starting at 3:55.

Merry Christmas!

funny pictures, episode 7

It’s been a while since I made of post of just funny pictures.  Today’s collection covers a wide range of topics: Apple’s iPad, Winnie the Pooh, swine flu, how (not) to clean computers, and Glenn Beck giving weather forecasts.   So it’s something for everyone.  (Well, there’s no explosions… or bacon… but maybe next time I’ll incorporate those, too.)

Someone got their hands on a pre-release iPad Pro...
For when you just can't find enough ways to express your nerdiness...
Proof that swine flu paranoia is out of hand.
Sometimes there just isn't a logical explanation...
Gotta do something to get rid of those dust bunnies...
I'm pretty sure this voids the warranty.
When Glenn Beck forecasts the weather.

You’re welcome to share any funny comments you may have about any of these pictures.
