    Caption Contest 6/9/06

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Fashion tip #12: somber colors such as blues and darker greens help to project a more serious/professional image.

    A man in sequence suit walks into a bar with a box champaign in his hands.

    The bartender asks, "Did you win it in a raffle?"

    "Yep", replied the box of champaign.

    OR

    With the prize money from the competition, Henry planned on buying shoes to finish his outfit.

    When the president of the “Dancing with the Stars” TV show fan club showed up to a rehearsal, the producers knew that the show Jumped the Shark.



    I had a great one... but Maister said that it would not be nice. (as he was laughing)

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    There are many 'blue shirts' in the field. 'Blue pants', however, are not found in large numbers among the ranks of professional planners.

    Erwin good-naturedly accepts his consolation prize when he strikes out at the dweebs, nerds and geeks singles night at the local Y.

    I love the caption contests. Provides me with some great stuff to put on my screen saver montage.

    Not really a caption, but this guy reminds me of Napolean Dynamites's brother, Chip.
