Create The Caption #320

Monday, December 08, 2008

(Usually) Everyday I'll throw out a photo, you provide the caption, and then hilarity ensues. I'm also adding a handful of links at the bottom of the page that you should check out each day.

Last Thursday's Winners....


"In an effort to save money for the re-signing of Lebron, the Cleveland management team decides to change the dance team's dress code to relaxed-casual."- Wade Robertson (Hilarious profile link btw, Wade)

"In an effort to ease their fans transition into seeing LeBron in another team's jersey in 2010, the Cavs will play every remaining game this year in a different team's uniform. Tonight, the '82 Atlanta Hawks!"- David

"Man, I can't WAIT to play for a team with cheerleaders who don't wear jeans and Converse sneakers."- OKrod

"Lebron: "I'm so excited. I'M SO EXCITED. I'm so....so scared."
Girl that King James is high-fiving: "I thought AA prohibited movie quotes from being used?"
Lebron: That's where you're wrong. This is a TV quote!."- JFein

Yay technicalities! (Seriously though....no more.)

Phelps was named the 2008 recipient of the "That's Preposterous!" award by the Black Comedians Association. Each year the BCA awards the antique vase to a famous caucasian male who best exemplifies the stereotypical white person that is often the butt of every Comic View joke. Phelps is seen with last year's winner, Eli Manning.

Pictured here are Eli Manning and MIchael Phelps. You may remember Phelps from his performance in those Rosetta Stone commercials. This shot shows them just before being sucked into a vortex filled with over-paid athletes with too many endorsements. The left side of Phelps' face seems to already be feeling the effects of the powerful suction.
