Caption Challenge 128

It’s time for another new Caption Contest! Your challenge this week is to come up with the best caption for this comics panel:

This one is a little different in that you’re not filling in a dialog balloon, but rather coming up with a caption that might appear above or below the image. I’ll pick out some as my personal favorites to highlight in a post next Monday, and then I’ll choose one of those to bear the standard as the “Featured Creator of the Week” atop the right tool bar.

All entries must be left as a comment (or comments) to this post. Keep ‘em clean (appropriate for a late-night broadcast TV show), but most importantly, keep ‘em funny!

No limit to entries, but please, self-edit and only put up ones you genuinely think are good!

About Jeff Hebert

    Jeff Hebert: I believe Skybandit has achieved the difficult quadfecta of hitting the third rails of religious, abortion, politics and drugs all in one comment. That’s gotta be a record of some sort!

    Not that I think it should be removed, because honestly I think it’s hilarious, but how come skybandit gets to make 4 political jokes, when my 1 well liked political joke gets deleated?

  62. alphaalpharomeo: Not that I think it should be removed, because honestly I think it’s hilarious, but how come skybandit gets to make 4 political jokes, when my 1 well liked political joke gets deleated?

    It’s just a judgment call. I didn’t think any of these were written to insult a particular group. Like if it were “DIE STUPID LIBERTARIANS” or whatever, that I would delete.

  69. alphaalpharomeo

    Holy guns and hats Batman
