Thanks for all who entered our latest contest. As usual, PJM readers showed the world what great believers they are in, “Truth, Justice and the American Way.” (As an aside, the first person who can identify the character associated with that slogan receives a shout-out during our next contest.)
Now, the news is bad all around: the Middle East is imploding, it’s a free-for-all on our southern border, Putin is poised to conquer the Ukraine, and since our days as a great nation are numbered, without further ado, here are the winning captions.
There was one grand pooh-bah of a winner who deserves to wrap himself in the flag and that is RockThisTown who wrote the grand prize winning caption:
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses . . . yearning to get an EBT card.
And… RockThisTown had another winning caption that reflected a memorable Obama-ism of days gone by:
At some point, you’ve made enough American flags.
Our reigning Caption King, Chris Henderson was also a winner with a twist on another Obama-ism:
“Betsy Ross, you didn’t build that!”
Zip Code won with:
I came here for the American dream and now I find out even the ex First Lady is dead broke.
Then the great cfbleachers had several winners:
First, making light of the Democratic National Committee celebrating Flag Day with a photo tweet using red, white and blue bunting instead of a flag, he wrote:
Iraq collapsing into ISIS hands, Benghazi a swirl of deceit and corruption, Ukraine overrun by communist tanks. … Just when American morale needs a patriotic home run…Obama and the Democrats are bunting.
Second, because making fun of the IRS is just so easy these days (before they come after us) cfbleachers wrote:
All the real US flags were being held for safekeeping by the IRS…but they lost them.
Finally, because there is nothing important happening in our nation or the world, the Vice-President of the United States threw his annual first day of summer pool party this past weekend. Here is a photo of the jolly host with his water weapon of choice, a deadly super-soaker. This is not an official caption contest but I am confident you will all have some fun playing around with it. See you all next time a photo is super worthy of an official PJ Media caption contest!
