Create The Caption #258

Tuesday, August 05, 2008

(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.

Are you funny enough to create a caption for this photo of Jeff Blumb (Director of Public Relations of the Green Bay Packers) canceling a press conference last night?

Yes, it's Blumb with a B. I have nothing else for you guys today. However, I'm hopeful that Brett will text me something soon. For now, I'd recommend waiting to hear from Mort.

What's the point... ESPN will have the story before us or Brett anyways.

Tune into SportsCenter at 11.

Jerry Tagge announces that he is also returning to his rightful job as Packers starting quarterback, joining Aaron Rodgers, Brett Favre, John Hadl, Lynn Dickey, and Randy Wright battling for the position.

ESPN's coverage of Bart Starr's planned comeback will begin at 3:30 pm Eastern.

Does Brett wipe with his throwing hand? I'm not sure but if you tune into ESPN's newest channel ESBN (Every Second Brett Network), you can find out. If you dont' have ESBN call your local provider today.

The Packers offered me $200 to come out here and cancel this press conference. Had I known they were willing to go up to $20 million, I might have held out a little longer.

No, I don't know where Ari Fleischer is or when he will be here. All I know is that management has told me that I will be the starting spokesman for the Green Bay Packers. Until that changes, that is going to be my focus.

That's right . . . the Packers organization has discovered that Brett Favre is indeed a racist, an anti-semite, and also hates children. We've also learned that Brett despises the state of Minnesota. Any more questions?

Jeff Blumb responds to a question posed by John Madden about whether or not Brett Favre would share a turducken, watch reruns of "Alcoa's Fantastic Finishes" from the 70s and 80s, and then spoon with him in the Madden Cruiser out in the parking lot.

Sorry guys, we're unable to find Brett's pacifier - so he's a bit fussy...he's currently napping in the crib, so unfortunately there's no press conference tonight.

He's gone. What else can I say.

We are sad to report that Ed Werder's nose was so far up Brett's ass that when Brett sat down he killed him.

Luckily Mort was in the kitchen getting another sandwich.
