"And Now The Sunday Funnies" (week 2)

We have our first winner! The lovely effervescent BETTY.

To see the clip and all last week’s entries go HERE

In response to what is the cocked head glazed eyed blinking Katie Couric thinking Betty wrote ...

She's thinking, "Just for the hell of it, I think I'll ask that question again."

Your Basket O’CDs awaits Betty. Let me know where to send it.

From CDBasket

This week we need a caption for this.

The contest stays open through Friday night and the winner is announced next Sunday. Next week’s prize is something from my book shelves.

Have a Happy Sunday! I leave you with this wonderful election moment. Thank You Cathy for sending me the link.


Jackie said...

Oh that Simpsons link is the best!

I'll get back to you on the caption competition (hey, if Sarah Palin can get away with that then I can too, right?!).

Daryl said...

Congrats to Betty

Oh my this week's could be rated R

Can I call him Joe too?


Betty said...

I won? I really won? (Blushes)Ooooooo, I hardly ever win anything. Thank you.

Reb said...

Congrats Betty!

To keep it clean:
"She thinks my fly got stuck by accident!"

Raven said...

The Simpsons is funny but scary too. I'm really afraid that could happen. I think it has happened before. I can't think of a caption. Maybe I'll come back later. Congrats to Betty. Excellent job.

Queen-Size funny bone said...

Shucks Joe that is so nice of you too say you like my hair down rather than up in a bun.

kenju said...

Congrats, Betty!

My caption is:

"Yes, you can call me Joe, if you'll promise to respect me in the morning."

Dianne said...

jackie - The sad and scary thing is that if it can happen to Homer it can happen for real. You can get back to me as long as you say becha or gotcha at least 10 times while winking. ;)

daryl - R ratings are good, means it's interesting ;)

betty - you really won LOL
you made everyone in my house laugh at loud.

reb - ;) we already decided to go for R ratings ;)

raven - I know!! I've said this a thousand times. The Dems better have poll watchers and lawyers on the ground in every state, especially the close ones. I have written to both my Senators and my Congressman and to Obama's people.

queen size funny bone - awww shucks, that's a good one.

kenju - and another good one!! :)

Kell said...

Palin to herself, "What a relief! My flag pin is bigger than his. I've so got this debate in the bag."

Linda Reeder said...

Joe Biden thinking - All she's got is that smile. I can beat it and I have the answers, too.

Tammy said...

I couldn't think of anything, but I wanted to read what everyone else captioned.

Mojo said...

I had to laugh... I thought Betty was submitting a caption for this week in her comment! (I'm a little slow sometimes...)

Now lessee... how about:
"Oh gosh darnit, how did that get there?"


Jay said...

Joe Biden: "I've got underwear older than you!"

Roger said...

I thought the VP debate was more interesting then the P debate, I'm I wrong lol ;D

Awesome Simpson cartoon!
You rock Di!!!

Debo Blue said...

Biden: "Really? You sure your husband's doesn't look like this?"

Caption Two
Palin:"This old guy's a wolf, and I've got my rifle in the car!"

the walking man said...

Joe: "I love politics."

Sarah: "The never ending way to fame and fortune."

Matt-Man said...

I am so far behind on my blog reading. A caption contest, eh? I'll have to give it a shot. Have a great week Di. Cheers!!

CrystalChick said...

Good job Betty!
The video, soooo funny!


Biden: I won the bid on Ebay for the autographed picture of you in the bikini with your rifle.

Palin: Aw, say it ain't so Joe. ;)

Dianne said...

kell - it's a wonder her flag pin isn't encrusted in rhinestones - after all she's such a classy chick.

linda - and he did have the answers!! and he managed to follow the debate format, imagine that :)

tammy - check back Monday night or Tuesday morn - last week it didn't get filled up til then. thanks for coming by :)

mojo - I went back up to betty's comments and LOL LOL - it could be a great caption!! I think Betty is a natural at Sunday Funnies!!
I like yours and wow, you've got the Palin wind down pat ;)

jay - and he wants to show it to her ;)

roger - the Simpson clip is pretty amazing isn't it!! thanks Marlboro Man ;)

debo blue - hey!! long time no see. thanks for playing along :)

mark - she doesn't want Johnnie to give up on your state. watch out, she's coming to a closed factory or a bread line near you. she's such a saint, so concerned about the little people.

matt-man - I started it last Sunday. The Sunday Funnies on George S's show made me think of it. I hoped to lower the tension and heighten the snark. Snark is good for the soul ;)

crystalchick - I think you've got the 'Awww' down ;)
Betty is so cool ain't she ;)

Knight said...

Betty was hilarious last week.

"I'll show you my little Maverick if you show me yours ;)"

Smalltown RN said...

McCain and Pallin yes with the looks on their face this weeks caption could get kinda of naughty....

As for the Simpsons...that's just scary....

Ivanhoe said...

Some of these are sooo funny. There is no way I could trump them.
How about Palin saying:
Ooooooh, too bad you are not my running mate.

Congrats to Betty!

Dianne said...

knight - Betty was/is hilarious. I love reading her posts, she comes up with stuff so nonchalant, innocent almost ;)

small town rn - naughty can be nice! ;)
and yep! the cartoon is scary since it is too close to the truth for comfort.

ivanhoe - we are a creative group!!

Real Live Lesbian said...

I *love* these!

Congrats to Betty!

Biden to Palin:

One. Two., now they're in order, Sweetie. If you get these cards out of order you won't give the right answer to the question.

Diane Mandy said...

Congrats to Betty! Pretty funny stuff!

Bond said...

"Oh now Senator, you know I really do want to touch it, but can't we wait until later when my kids aren't watching."


You're right Senator, I really am just like the Scarecrow and I hope the wizard can find me a brain.

SnoopMurph said...

You all gave me a great laugh-cannot wait to see who is deemed the winner! And congrats to Betty.

My brain isn't working on all cylinders today or I would participate! But it is fun to read along!

Dianne said...

RLL - glad you enjoy these, I love seeing what everyone comes up with

diane - we aim to entertain :)

bond - excellent bipartisan naughtiness!!

snoop - you can come back any time this week if something comes to ya :)

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

"Is that a twitch you have in your eye?"


"My wife really dies not like other women winking at me...!"

I am not good at this, at all!

That Simpsons Video is frighteningly funny!

chloe said...

Your flag pin is bigger than mine.
Tell me does size really matter...

kudos to Betty!!

Thanks, diane for injecting some levity to a seriously disturbing picture.

Simpsons video was great!!! If you have the time, please consider volunteering as a monitor at the polls.

Dianne said...

oldold lady of the hills - frighteningly funny is a perfect way to describe that clip :)

chloe - you're welcome and thank you!! I think a bit of levity keeps us all on balance. I was supposed to be at "obama training camp" before I hurt my foot. I was going to PA and Ohio and then was going to be trained for election day. I have been working the phones though. And I've hobbled about the voter registration table at the grocery :)

Jeff B said...

"Do you mind if I call you Joe? By the way, what the heck fire is your real name anyway?" *wink*

the walking man said...

Dianne for all the hype and turns out she is simply another self centered pol, reveling in the glory of a pre-vetted crowd.

We will manage our bread lines without government assistance just as we have done during the boom times which never appeared here.

Personally I'm glad they gave up the state. All of them were a distraction from the peculiar reality that is Michigan.

Bear Naked said...

Have you seen the Sarah Palin Debate Flow Chart at

Bear((( )))

bobbie said...

I like Jay's.

But I keep thinking of her thoughts in answer to Jay's, and you don't want to hear that. I'll try to come up with something later.

Rambling Woods said...

Nothing to do with this post, but thank you so much Dianne for helping to alleviate my fears about Oliver's teeth extraction. I was supposed to have been brushing his teeth, but he doesn't like I didn't. I guess this is a common problem, but not one that any of my cats has ever had. I'm glad that Siren did well and yes, both cats were very freaked out on Monday. I don't know what I would do if anything happened to these two cats...

Matt-Man said...

Joe: You really are vacuous arent, you?

Sarah: You betcha. That's what makes this so darn funny ; ).


Joe: How in the hell did you get McCain to pick you?

Sarah: I posed for him wearing nothing but my thigh high mukluks.


Dianne said...

jeff - good heavens, gosh golly! I sure can hear her say "heck fire" ;)

mark - 'perculiar reality' is what makes Michigan great. I'm glad they gave up the state because it says they can not pull the BS wool over the eyes of working class Americans. Regardless of what looney tunes play they put on for the TV.

bear - Wow did he hit the nail on the head!! And he can write! thank you for the link.

bobbie - we want to hear whatever ya got! ;)

rambling - you're welcome! You were understandably worried but too hard on yourself. Siren and Mia won't let me touch their teeth either. Cats are notorious for being difficult (at best) to care for. Oliver and Elliot are in good good hands!

matt-man - hilarious of course! one question - do ya think she knows what "vacuous" means!? She probably thinks it's something sexy - betcha, gotcha, gee golly

Jeff B said...

Sarah: "Wow Joe, look at that bulge. You're hung like a horse!

Joe: "That's an elephant you jack-ass!"

Dianne said...

jeff - what can I say!! you managed to get 3 animals in there.

tt said...

" just keep smiling and no one will know...remember Don't ask don't tell!!"

this is fun! What's YOUR line anyway???

Dianne said...

tt - I love you!! I can't say it enough. I don't particpate in my own contest since I'd get so confused if I won.
