Thanks to all who entered our first and very popular photo caption contest of the new year.

Based on all the politically incorrect entries, several of you should follow the lead of our friend “rbj” who entered:

Rendering of the Obama statue proposed by The Obama Temple.

Then, he quickly followed up with this comment:

It was begging to be said.  I‘m packing for reeducation camp right now.

Please note that this is an excellent example of pro-active thinking. May I suggest that many of you regular contest goers keep your bags packed as well.

Now let us begin the “hellish task” of announcing the winners of this “devil of a contest.”

There were two writers that stood out Kuce and RockThisTown. Both had numerous entries and several that deserved a place in the winner’s circle.


“If you like your soul, you can keep your soul.”

“Satan visits OK State Capitol; conveys greetings from Timothy McVeigh.”

“Representative of Infernal Revenue Service visits Oklahoma to teach children the dangers of the TEA Party.”

Satanic Temple demands equal representation in Capitol. Satan’s PR person quoted as saying “All politics is Hell – we just want our fair share”

“Satan relocates HQ to Oklahoma after Climate Change adversely impacts Hell”

“Oklahoma children welcome key Obama adviser to the capitol”


The Satanic Temple? You didn’t build that!

“Ahhhh, I love the smell of burning souls in the morning.”

A shoo-in to win a Nobel Peace Prize before he’s seated in the Temple.

“Hello, my name is Satan! Like me on Facebook.”

Hey, where’s my pitchfork? Oh yeah, I left it on Air Force One.

See, I told you to keep those camp bags packed!

Here are a few more winners. (Seriously, this winners post could be three pages long, so better that you just go back and read all the entries.)

DPeterson:  “AP: The Democrats introduce their new Official Spokesman…”

wombat1: “If you like the religion you already have, of course you can keep it.”

David77 had two winners:

“Satan, Prince of Lies, …, oh wait, Obama has already received that honor.”

“Satan, Prince of Darkness. Hey, wait, that’s racist.”

Cfbleachers our “Caption King Emeritus” displayed his usual brilliance with these three winners. (Note: As mentioned in the original contest, The Satanic Temple has named that “thing” depicted in the statue, Baphomet.)

Baphomet vs. The Ten Commandments, the final knockout game.

I understand Baphomet has little chance of winning a spot in Oklahoma, but that MSNBC has offered an anchor position as consolation.

“Can I get the internet on my Obamaphone?” Sure, your browser is called Baphomet.

Finally, our contest was missing entries from our 2013 Caption King, Chris Henderson. A signal that he is back in re-education camp (again) likely due to the photo below that he submitted to our last contest.


Alert the (Danish) media and see you all next time a photo is worthy of a PJ Tatler Photo Caption Contest.
