photos in a need of a caption, christmas edition

ooh — this is gonna be fun! and since i’m flying to DEE-troit, michigan today for 10 days of christmas/winter/family fun, i thought to myself, “self, what better way to officially kick off your christmas holiday than with a two-picture, semi-sacrilegious, special holiday edition of the ever-popular photo in need of a caption contest.” and when i thought that to myself, myself had to agree!

so here they are. really, just two angles of the same thing, thanks to one of my wittiest co-workers, lisa wondercheck (some of you talk to her when you call our reg department).

same rules as usual: contenders will get added (by me) to a rolling list. contenders are those captions (or quotes — some of you don’t quite know what ‘captions’ are, but that’s ok) that elicit an audible response from me: laugh, chuckle, grunt, groan. anything audible, you’re on the list. the prize? two things: 1, the admiration (and rabid jealousy) of the other contenders; and 2, a ys book of your choosing (from any line: youth ministry, invert, or emergentys).

contest closes sometime wednesday night, theoretically. i’ll be at my in-laws, and will only have dial-up, unless i sneak out to starbucks; so don’t hold me to it!

oh, and i should warn you — i’m getting massive quantities of poker site spam these days (comment spam). so the word “poker” automatically requires approval by me. don’t worry if your poker-related comment doesn’t immediately show up — it’s just in a cue, waiting for my approval.

the contenders:

yeah, it’s not quite wednesday night (though it is just after 5pm here in frickin’ cold michigan), but i’m gonna declare a WINNER, because i have one more special holiday edition caption contest to post! so, without further waiting, the winner this time around is…
Hurry up and deal King boy. I ain’t got all night. I have to go unplug the snowman and take my shift on the front lawn in like 5 minutes. (brian)

    Sorry. You’ll have to excuse the wisemen. My dad claims the attic’s full. Last week they were playing pool. I’m guessing this summer they’ll be sunbathing in speedos.
