This week our caption contest features a fight during some type of sporting event. It looks like either soccer or rugby, although you can of course make it be about whatever you want. Your role in this exercise is to write something funny to explain this picture (although you also get to enjoy what other people write, of course). You can approach it from any angle. The only rule is to keep it clean.

Today I’m going to link to some videos of commercials. Now before you give up on this post, know that these commercials feature Mr. T, and they’re awesome. One of them is perhaps the best / greatest commercial ever.
First, Mr. T is in the back of a truck that jumps through a house, and he is shooting a chain gun that shoots Snickers candy bars at a guy who is speedwalking. (This commercial was pulled from British TV, because someone got offended and complained about it.)
This next one is probably the best of all the Snickers commercials with Mr. T. A soccer player pretends to get hurt, so Mr. T drives up in a tank, running over cars, and telling the soccer player to quit acting like a crazy fool. I don’t think commercials get any cooler than this!
Here’s Mr. T in a helicopter, going off on a guy who thinks the water is too cold in his pool.
Here’s the video where he created his chain gun that shoots Snickers. It reminds me of the A-Team TV series, where B.A. Baracus would take whatever scraps he could find and build some type of armored vehicle with weapons. In a way, B.A. was like MacGyver, except much more awesome.
As far as I’m concerned, all companies should hire Mr. T to promote their products! Commercials wouldn’t be so annoying if they were cool, like these are.
