Thanks to all who entered our latest caption contest and special thanks that my “threat” was taken seriously.

Our grand prize winner was “rbj” with this entry:

Trump thought balloon: “So that’s what it looks like to stick to your principles.”

Our second grand prize winner was Chris Henderson (our reigning Caption King) with these two entries:

Three Presidential Candidates? More like three IRS targets.

How can they be Presidential Candidates when there aren’t any Teleprompters around?

Chris Henderson also had another winning caption for the photo of “yours truly” with Senator Ted Cruz.

In 2016 President Cruz appoints the new Secretary of Captioning

 RockThisTown wins an honorable mention for the same photo with this entry:

“Myra, I only have a few minutes – don’t filibuster the photo!”

RockThisTown had two hilarious captions for the photo of  ”eyes only” with “The Donald” in the background:

Huge photo faux pas – Trump is to never be in the background! That photographer is so fired! 

Blonded by the right.

Now the reason I am not re-posting the two aforementioned photos is because of all the snarky personal emails I received from friends and family.

“Hair” is a sample:

How do you keep birds from nesting in that hair?

Didn’t I see you in that dress six years ago at so and so’s wedding? Your dress lasted longer than the marriage!

How could you even think of having your picture taken with that crazy man?

And the reason why a good friend dared not enter the official caption contest: Too much hair for me to respond.

Boy, I am glad that contest is over!

Finally, a darling family member who proudly works for the company that has achieved total world domination — sent me the photo shown below.

It is of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu taken during a meeting in Jerusalem last week.

My immediate response was that it HAD to have been photoshopped — until I saw it on the Washington Post with the caption, “The most uncomfortable photo in the world.”

And yes, for once I agree with the Washington Post, so no photo caption contest for this one.

See you all next time a photo is worthy of a PJM Tatler caption contest that does not happen to be “the most uncomfortable photo in the world.”

I'm sorry I missed the contest. Love the captions. All I can think of is "a doctor, a Senator and a Billionaire walk in to a bar . . . . "

As for the uncaptionable photo, perhaps it is best that the shadows of the past need to remain locked up in the past.

Thanks.

And not to caption the last picture, but that is the reason I have no problem with spying on every German Chancellor from now until the sun vaporizes the earth.

You know Hitler is dead right? Do you REALLY truly believe that the Germans are just waiting until people have lowered their vigilance a bit more so that they can have another Hitler-like leader who will then try to conquer the world? That's the only reason I can see for you wanting to spy on every German leader for eternity.

Give it a rest. The Germans have apologized again and again, banned the Nazi Party and any others that mimic it, paid billions in compensation to Israel and performed various other acts of contrition. What more do they have to before non-Germans get past Hitler?

A great many are, Sparky, and not just the obvious Hitler Youth types that like to demonstrate in the streets. If it were only these, they could be dismissed as silly and not worthy of attention. They will never accomplish anything.

But it's not just them, not by a long, long way. The Jew-hatred of Hitler was never Hitler's alone; he just fanned the flames. It never died, it just went underground. It's very much alive and well in Germany, and it is becoming more socially acceptable to bring it out in the open, along with a longing for the 'good old days'.

Those silly boys demonstrating in the street, the ones that will never accomplish anything? They won't bring back the days of Hitler, but when the mainstream DOES, they will happily serve in the role of enforcer.

Maybe if they weren't outlawing circumcision, you would have a stronger point.

I have to agree with you somewhat, Mr. Sparky. The world has moved on as have the Germans. Thank heavens for the German economy now because it is holding up all of Europe. The reason why I did not want to use this photo in a contest was that I was concerned about being called "insensitive" by some commenter who lost a relative in the camps or during the war itself.
The sensitivity and raw nerves surrounding WWII will be around for decades to come as will the opinion of Mr. rbj and I can totally understand that. Think of the passion still stirred up by the Confederate flag for example. That is because passion is passed down from generation to generation long after the history and even the facts are long forgotten.

Don't care. It's two world wars, and a lot of young American men are sleeping for all eternity over in Europe, including my great uncle. I've got nothing against current Germans, I like them in fact, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to keep an eye on their leaders.
