Caption Contest Winners Live From The Pub

I’m blogging the caption contest winners live from here:

Because they have this:

And this:

And I like this:

And this:

I'm kidless because Teen, who just learned about cleavage, has taken his younger boy cousins here:

For wings, of course.

And with strict instructions to swim in front of the lifeguard Daughter and Ten-Year Old are here:

So I’m here at Dogfish with Sister-in-Law, the only family member who reads my blog. Not because she is supportive, mind you, or even because she thinks I’m funny. She’s basically a busy-body and needs to know everything that’s going on.

She never shows much cleavage but she drinks, so I love her. Also I can blame her for choosing the slogan winner so I am not accused of favoritism.


Beat it. No you beat it.

Wait...Sister-in-Law tells me this is the wrong photo. Guess that's what happens when you drink too many of these:

They are 9% alcohol you know. Sadly, I do not own any Bush or McCain dolls, although I do have the have this one:

My Girl Hillary.


Thanks to all who participated. Now personally I liked the caption from Andy of Andy's Weird Warped World:

Fonze: Hey Sonny, guess where my other thumb is.

But since this is a family blog, Sister-in-Law The Prude told me I couldn’t publish that caption. Plus that Andy guy drinks way too much.


I got you babe, no I got you babe. Fellas please. I’m a lover not a fighter.

Great job JD of I Do Things. Thanks so much.

Although, I do wonder if a Black American would use the word "fellas". Oh, wait a minute, I forgot. Michael's no longer ..... never mind.

First prize was the one-of-a-kind Diesel Daisy Earrings (notice the presence of a link there):

But sadly, nobody wanted them.

So I decided to give the earrings to Sister-in-Law for helping me out, but even she informed me she’d take the freshwater pearl ones instead.

So if anyone out there wants these the second in my Diesel Series, email me and they’re yours.

By default JD gets second prize my Xena doll as seen on the popular television series:

Sorry Unfinished, although you do score points for liking Cusack, so I am publishing this for you:

Also I really liked the caption from Damon at Try To Keep Up:

a tree hugger,
a boy mugger,
and a Potzie slugger.

so I picked out a special gift for him at a shop on Rehoboth Avenue:

I also enjoyed the caption from AoE at Army of Epiphenomenon because it works with both the Bush/McCain photo and the original photo:

Sonny: I want to beat it.
Fonze: No, I want to beat it.

He is the lucky winner of this:

Have fun AoE selling the toast on eBay.

So JD, Damon, and AoE email your addresses to Pegcypher at sbcglobal dot net to get your gifts.

And because adding all of these links has made me thirsty, I really must go and drink more of these:

But I am so not tipping the bartender because the asshat didn't ask to see my id.

Stay tuned for:

-Meg and Teen do the Virgin Festival
-Stalking Once Removed
-and Something Something About These:

If you now have the song "I Got You Babe" stuck in your head, visit Humor-Blogs and vote for all of these funny folks.


Jen said...

We are heading to OC this weekend (again) and I will beg my husband to stop off at your little pub. Glad you are having a great vacation and can't wait to hear the stalking stories!

JD at I Do Things said...


I can't believe I am one of the winners! AND I WON THE XENA DOLL!

God, I am pathetically excited.

Thank you, thank your lovely sister-in-law, thank the pub and wi-fi, and mostly, the beer. Thank you, beer!


Congrats to the other winners and thanks so much. It was a lot of fun. (And I really can hear Michael Jackson saying, "fellas." But you're right. Black American males? Not so much.)

Looks like you're having a lot of fun.And beer. And I'm interested in the earrings, but I'm overseas and I know that is out of some people's price range. I'll email you about it though, hopefull, assuming my memory hangs on by the thread that is holding it now.

CableGirl said...

Hmmm... Dog's Head and free WiFi with no kids? Sounds like an awesome combination.

Love the Bush and BushLite photo + caption. Too funny said...

You're so frickin' hilarious. I think I say that on every one of my comments. I apologize for my lack of creativity.

FYI: I awarded you over at my place.

Alice said...

I was so tempted to skip out of the party and hunt you down in Baltimore! Sounds like you had a blast and can't wait to hear how your stalking went on Saturday. ; )

Chat Blanc (aka Sandy) said...

so glad you're thoroughly enjoying the beer, er I mean the vacation! :) Congrats to the winners! BTW those bacon strips are hilarious!!

April said...

I'm speechless. I want to run, screaming and crying after that Bush/McCain shot, but I'm at work. Therefore, I am speechless.

for a different kind of girl said...

OH MY GOD! Must know where one can get that zombie playset!!!

And maybe some beer. To ply you with. Whatever. But...Zombies!

Jenn Thorson said...

How about a Flesh-Eating Zombie Scene done to the song "I Got You, Babe"?

PS- Kudos to the winning caption-- an excellent choice!

damon said...

SWEEEEET! Bacon band-aids AND a special super secret toy suprise inside.

Somehow I knew this was gonna be a great day!

Meg said...

Jen: Just remember--more hops equals more alcohol. If you drink too much you may end up wearing the beer coasters as earrings like I did.

JD: You Go Girl! And I am so glad you're not posting as "Blah" anymore.

Lilac: You want the earrings, you got them. They're almost your color.

CableGirl: It was awesome and now by default, back to my Fantasy Life.

Restlesshousewife: Feel free to visit every day and say that!

Alice: I wish you would have. Stalking with teen in tow is not ideal.

Sandy: They are great. Only Vegetarian Daughter isn't fond of them.

Differentkindofgirl: You can buy them in Rehoboth Beach--they have it all.

Jenn: Thanks, I may have to steal that one.

Damon: Congrats! Nothing like a little pork to make one feel better.

Meg said...

BTW: There's another comment section--mistake sort of--located under this one.

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

I'll say it again... this vacation seems sooooooo much better... ;-)

Great captions! Great beer! Great SIL!

Anonymous said...

Haha.. You are Hilarious!

Congrats to JD!!

The Hypocritical One said...

I thought the same thing when I got to the end of the post--I got you babe was running through my mind.

Ms Picket To You said...

i'm sitting here surrounded by the children who follow me around like i am their mother or something, waiting for more rain to fall and avoiding cooking dinner. which is to say i am sick with jealousy.

JT said...

I so don't like JD anymore, she is so not my friend.
I'm going off to sulk over my lost Xena doll.

Stephanie M said...

you give the best gifts EVER! How did you know that bacon strip band aids and holy toast would be perfect for me...if only I had won...
