It pleased me to see just how many of you followed the soccer ball off the fiscal cliff.

(Leading with this statement satisfies my daily requirement of mentioning the U.S. Debt Clock any chance I get.)

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming of announcing the winners of our latest and extremely successful Photo Caption Contest.

There were so many great captions to choose from that it made judging very difficult.

All the captions mentioned below are winners, but these three had the most bounce:

The ball had to pay OFA $15,000 to be in this photo.

Submitted by Adi.  Editor’s note: OFA (Organizing for Action) is Obama’s own activist/fundraising organization.

This is the most popular sport in Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, Spain and Cyprus, right. Well, then following in their footsteps is my goooooaaaalllll!

The Truth? My media and I…we can bend it like Beckham.

Both submitted by cfbleachers, our reigning Caption King. Editor’s note: Seriously folks, I try NOT to select cfbleachers as the winner every contest, but his captions are just so clever I can not help myself.

Here are the rest of the best.

Several captions from one of our Royal Caption Kings, Donald Eugene:

The label says do not over inflate, to late for that.

Since I closed down most of the Control Towers, this ball don’t have any place to land.

Your right, this does look better than using Joe

We were going to use Rodman’s basketball for this take but, it kept setting off the Geiger Counter.

RockThisTown, another Royal Caption King scored high with these:

Mr. President, next time try bouncing your Nobel Prize off your head.

“This ball is from the Galaxy, so it’ll be perfect for my trophy case when I rule the universe.”

“To show my appreciation for this wonderful gift, I’m granting Obamacare waivers to all of you

From LeighB:

Michelle’s drone stopped by to remind Barack to pick up his socks.

From x2klofun:

One is a shiny object adored by throngs of international elitists. The other is a soccer ball.

And finally, more from our Beloved Caption King, cfbleachers:

Based on the last photo contestif I was that ball…I’d watch out for those horns.

After five years, the media finally snaps a photo of Obama using his head.

I’ll throw this ball in the air…and if it comes down, I’ll tax it.

Myra, it’s funny you put your debt clock and Pele’s sport in the same contest. Is Obama trying to prove he can count to a Brazilian?

“This is really not a sport for Democrats, you have to use your head and can’t grab everything you can get your hands on.”

See you all next time a photo is worthy of a Tatler Photo Caption Contest and Happy Easter everyone!
