With Halloween week upon us, it is time to announce the Obama pumpkin carving caption contest winners. These pumpkin carvings are currently on display at Madame Tussauds in New York.

Once again, the creativity of our readers was worthy of applause and why these contests continue to amuse.

Here are the winners:

Kuce gave new meaning to a popular Obama-ism from the 2012 election:

You didn’t carve that!

Chris Henderson, our current Caption King continues his glorious reign with several winners. First, he wrote new lyrics to a classic song:

So bye-bye, Miss Pumpkin Pie
A bevy of heavy scandals, but the economy was dry
And them NSA boys were smokin’ my choom supply
Singin’ “This’ll be the day that I spy
This’ll be the day that I spy.”

Then Chris added: I call this song “For-the-first-time-in-my-adult-life-I-am-a-proud-American Pie.”

Second, more Henderson brilliance on display:

“If I had a pumpkin, it would look like me.”

Pumpkins lit by Solyndra . . . barely.

Now we know what will replace the Churchill Bust.

Here are the honorable mentions:

Adi contributed a “thought bubble.”

“Maybe if we put our faces on Halloween pumpkins we might scare someone and earn a little international respect.”

Walterc had a hopeful thought:

In true Cinderella fashion, On Jan 20, 2017 the first couple turn back into pumpkins.

Kuce gave POTUS a new meaning:

POTUS – Pumpkin of the United States

Finally, here is Allan Crowson with a new twist on a famous Obamacare line:

“In spite of what you may have heard, if you want to keep the head that you have attached to your body now, you can keep it. I promise!”

Now, I promise to see you all next time a photo is worthy of a Tatler Photo Caption Contest!
