Create The Caption #280

Wednesday, September 17, 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.

"What's the difference between a Stanford grad and a Cal grad? A Stanford grad would never come that close to an NFL end zone."- Anon

"After Andy's kid gave me some pre-game "vitamins" everything is really weird, man. I thought I crossed the goal line yesterday."- Mal

"Tony Kornheiser is gonna LOVE this Brett Favre underhanded flick!"- CoCosHavMorFun

Are you funny enough to create a caption for this photo of Rick Reilly hanging out under a net on the Colbert Report?

Stephen Colbert traps the inclusive Reilly, who only shows up to sell up some bad book about sports.

Colbert obviously distraught over the ineffectiveness of the nets later said, "I thought they were supposed to keep the annoying shit on the outside?"

"We've got them sir!"

"Very good. Throw them out the airlock!"

Now that the elusive Rick Reilly has been caught, he will be tranquilized, tagged and released back into the wild. Scientists will monitor his movements throughout the coming year, collecting invaluable data about this little-understood species.

After urging from Americans everywhere, Colbert sticks Reilly under the Cone of Silence.

Stephen and Rick try to protect themselves from the crap that now falls off the back page of SI since Rick's leaving.

Wait I thought those nets were supposed to keep annoying pets out, not in.

I made my cone of silence joke too late:
Cone of silence, you're doing it wrong.

So you can still write your way out of a paper bag, Rick. Now let's try a net.

Rick Reilly helps Steven Colbert protect himself before for his next career as Gallagher's replacement once ESPN terminates his contract for excessive use of old material and bad jokes.

Colbert: We finally got what has eluded us for so long...a bear! *crowd cheers* This is a victory for truthiness, justice, and the Bill O' Reilly way.

Rick Reilly's attempt to preserve his moment of cultural relativity is as dated as his jokes

My producers must have been drunk when booking. I requested Bill O'Reilly, not this guy, who I don't think anyone has any idea who he is.

Usually only Reilly's jokes are transparent and flimsy.
