Captions Courageous

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, earwigs, first day out

Surprise! It's another Earwigs day, because there's still nothing particularly compelling in the news, and here in north Texas we've got an all-day soaking rain going on that is lulling us into a coma. And yes, we still blame Daylight Saving Time.

And just for the fun of it, here are the "April Fool's Day" stories that we ran on Facebook. Not that these stories look much different than all the other fake news out there...



Bonus: MSNBC fans can bid for the rubber glove on eBay!

"The Savile Row Olympic 50 meter team, while nattily dressed, would take home no medals that year..."

I like Victor's first day out of prison. Meanwhile, how did VF's body escape from a morgue and wind up in a burning ambulance? Inquiring minds and all that. What causes one to say, "hummmmmmm" is that the autopsy was completed ruling homicide but conveniently they were going to extract the bullets the next day. I suspect the attending physician got a phone call, "How's your family? Do you really want to complete this autopsy today?" Just my cynical view.

Jim Irre said...

"Demoted to pencil holder." HA! Now that's funny right there! Just like one of a thousand uses for a dead cat!

OpenTheDoor said...

I think you messed up Biden's rubber glove.

Dave Neumann said...

I was not looking forward to this Monday; County Board Committee meeting and all. But I have been rescued by today's Earwigs cartoon/captions. Thank You.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@M. Mitchell Marmel- Love it!

@James Daily- You lost me (then again, I'm on my first cup of coffee). Who is VF? What happened?

@Jim Irre- We can only assume that he's happy to get the lead out.

@Dave Neumann- I'm delighted to hear it.

I suppose Phil McCracken should be happy he's just a pencil holder, not a pencil sharpener.

Pete (Detroit) said...

Tricky - he is, but that was a close shave...
Stilt - VF >> Vince Foster?

"You know how to whistle, dontchya? You just pucker up and blow..."

Boligat said...

@MMM- Very good!

Stilty, Anyway you can add a "Like" or "Thumbs Up" feature to the comments?

Emmentaler Limburger said...

Looks like he's preparing for the corporate ritual known as "BOHICA"...

Pete (Detroit) said...

Yep, definitely Vince Foster..

House-call colonoscopies may have been Pete's worst idea yet...

pdwalker said...

i'm partial to the open window one myself, as any joke that involves accidental maiming and wounding of children is funny in my book. (hey, i have three teenagers at home, it's understandable)

the far jokes come a breezy second.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@TrickyRicky- Especially considering how hard you'd have to crank his handle.

@Pete (Detroit)- Ah yes, Vince Foster. Although I believe reports of his exhumation, body theft, and immolation may be a bit on the exaggerated side.

@Boligat- I can't really add features like that. There IS a way to do "threaded" comments where you can leave a reply to one specific message, but I think it could get complicated and confusing. When it comes to blogging, I believe in the KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) principle.

@Emmentaler Limburger- When a practice has its own acronym, you know the problem is widespread. So to speak.

@Pete (Detroit)- I read that story and am afraid it smacks of malarkey.

@Porkyspen- Good one!

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@pdwalker- If you're into maiming and wounding of children (all in good fun, of course), I hope you've been visiting JohnnyOptimism.com!

Colby Muenster said...

Nick should move here to NC... you can inspect ladies' restrooms all you want now!

Boligat said...

Stilty,

I don't blame you about adding threads. You're right, they do get confusing and complicated. Over at American Thinker it sometimes gets to be a real mess. That's why I asked about "thumbs up"- ing. Much easier on the commenter.

Oh well, we take the bad with the very, very good.

Jerry Adams said...

^ please, never type "thumbs up " in a comment about a picture of a guy with his butt in the air. Never. Ever.

Boligat said...

@Jerry Adams: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Very good!

JustaJeepGuy said...

Hmmmm... I read that VF item, and I have to say, the timeline of the story makes it just a touch too fake to give in to a moment of belief. Darn it.

DougM said...

Evidently, it was two "huts" not three.

Garrett Fonda said...

@avonbikerider

Lady's room inspector for sure, however, with the new mandates on restrooms, are we sure it was a lady's room he is trying to inspect?

REM1875 said...

BoB liked adding a little extra to the pull my finger gag.

pdwalker said...

Stilton,

Read JohnnyOptimism? Oh no, I can't do that. The clown triggers me!

(hHAhahaah... no, I love the clown too)
