Create The Caption #128

Monday, December 10, 2007

(Usually) Everyday I'll throw out a photo from the AP or one of the bigger sites and you provide the caption. Hilarity ensues. I'm also adding a handful of links at the bottom of the page that you should check out each day.

Friday's Winners....


"Actually I'm not high, but Collingsworth's tie is giving me vertigo."- JK

"I wonder if Greg is watching."- Anon

"Sweet Mother of God, who put that '2 chicks 1 cup' video on the monitor?"- Anon (I can't believe I watched that video the other day. If you haven't....don't)

"This athletic activity is violent and juvenile. I just want to curl up and watch 'The Notebook'."-Anon

Try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous Period. You get your first look at this "six foot wide coach" as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement like T-Rex, he'll lose you if you don't move. But no, not Mangino. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side, from the other two Manginos you didn't even know were there. Because Mangino's a pack hunter, you see, he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force today. And he slashes at you with this... a six-inch retractable claw, like a razor, on the middle toe. He doesn't bother to bite your jugular like a lion. He slashes at you here... or here... or maybe across the belly, spilling your intestines. The point is... you are alive when they start to eat you. So you know... try to show a little respect.

Mangino: "I'm hungry"

Mangino: So, Obie, how much did FOX offer you to be on their sports celebrity knockoff of "The Biggest Loser" this winter to fill up their writers' strike schedule? I got $100,000.

Obie: Oh, only two things. They promised me I could have all the healthy apples I want, and then they assured me that I wouldn't be the heaviest person involved. (Looks at Mangino, gives sigh of relief.)

Mangino: I just hope they don't tempt me wth cupcakes...

Fresh off his consumption of the Sta-puft Marshmallow Man, Mangino eyed his next conquest. Is it just me, or does the orange look extremely frightened?
