Let’s hear a round of applause for all the brilliant creativity on display in our latest Tatler Photo Caption Contest!
PJM readers who follow this contest know we have a full bench of “Caption Kings” who fiercely compete with each other to proclaim the title of Reigning Caption King.
Now, the winner of this contest commented in early 2013 that he was determined to knock cfbleachers (our first and still greatest Caption King) off his throne. So today I am here to report that the “Mission Accomplished” banner will be flying at the home of RockThisTown after writing this amazing list of winning captions:
“Woodward, you’ll never work in this town again!” – Nixon, 1973 & Obama, 2013.
Nixon: Hated Watergate. Obama: Hates waterboarding.
Nixon: Had 18 minutes of tape missing. Obama: Has almost 18 trillion dollars missing.
Nixon: FBI helped him compile enemies list. Obama: FBI, CIA, DHS, TSA, BATF, IRS, WH staff, Soros, Hollywood & the media helping him compile enemies list.
Nixon: Appointed Burger Chief Justice. Obama: Appointed ketchup-for-brains Secretary of State.
Nixon: ‘You don’t have me to kick around anymore.’ Obama: ‘You’ve never kicked me around.’
Nixon: “The greatest honor history can bestow is the title of peacemaker.” Obama: “The greatest honor history can bestow is the title of flexible.”
History repeats itself: Woodward tells the truth.
History repeats itself: Presidents 37 & 44 threaten Bob Woodward.
Nixon: Had a VP named Spiro. Obama: Has an economy spiraling out of control.
Nixon: Had Elvis as a guest in the White House. Obama: Turned America into Heartbreak Hotel.
Nixon: Brought down by Woodward & Bernstein. Obama: May be brought down by Woodward & smokescreen.
Nixon: ‘I am not a crook.’ Obama: ‘I’m from Chicago, so draw your own conclusion.’
Nixon: Improved foreign relations with China Summit. Obama: Worsened race relations with beer summit.
Congratulations to RockThisTown who really rocked this contest and could easily win a President Nixon trivia contest!
Here are more winning captions and writers who deserve special recognition:
Nixon, you’re from California. You’ve got nothing on me. I’m from the land of Al Capone. Submitted by rbj. (another Caption King)
One visited China and scowled, the other met the Chinese leader and bowed.
One was involved in a 3rd rate burglary, the other in a 3rd rate presidency
Threats: Finally something not above his pay grade.
The Tyrant Sector is doing fine.
From Watergate to 57 states. All five submitted by Chris Henderson (one of our “royal” Caption Kings)
Finally. our Caption King of Kings cfbleachers, (who had better watch his back because RockThisTown means business) weighed in with these winning entries:
Nixon’s White House had the Plumbers, but Obama’s White House has all the leaks.
Bo plays Checkers?
No budget in over four years and $17 trillion in debt, this would have to be called Under Water Gate.
“I am not a crock” (This would make a great bumper sticker.)
Thanks to all who played along and see you next time a photo is worthy of a Tatler Photo Caption Contest.
Note: We encourage contest newcomers to match wits with our Caption Kings!
