Caption Central

"Unplugged and disconnected" edition

--Can't spell "New Orleans" without "N-E-R-O"
--White man sings with forked tongue
--What is the sound of a one-track mind on an eight-track recorder?
--Bush's appearance at the Katrina benefit concert yielded the most funding of the telethon, as irate concertgoers threw dollar bills on stage while pleading, "Please, just stop!"
--"Baby I...I'm hooked on a FEMA!"
--In an attempt to reach out to the victims of Katrina, Bush introduced himself as Stevie Ray Nagin
--SNL: "Ooh, Fred's got slacks on the boulevard!"
--Bush's chance encounter with Willie Nelson backstage led to some killer "honeysuckle"
--It also gave a whole new meaning to, "Brownie, you're doing a good job"
--Apollo: Where's the sandman when you need him?
--There wasn't a dry eye in the house...and come to think of it, nothing was dry in New Orleans at the time
--You're looking at the only time during the Katrina crisis that Bush bothered to fret
--Though Dubya strummed, Cheney really held the pick
--In 2009, Bush appeared on the lowest-ever rated "Hit Me Baby One More Time"
--Played backwards, Dubya gets his popularity back, his military back, his dog back...
--Talk about being out of tune!!

Oh my god. "Fred's got slacks..." That's AWESOME.

Son of a bitch! Is it humid in here?!?

Unlike former President Clinton, Bush enjoys strumming his instrument as opposed to blowing it.

Ian McGibboney said...

But of the the two, it's Bush who really blows where it counts.

Can't you just give me props for a funny caption...Sheesh.

Ian McGibboney said...

Well sure, Gob. Likewise, can't you give me props for a funny comeback?

gob and ian- nice exchange. political leanings be damned (as well they should be sometimes), your caption is pretty funny, goblin slayer...and ian, a hilarious comeback is pretty much a given with you.

How about "If it keeps on raining, the levee's going to break ..."

"Raindrops keep fallin' on my head ..."

Hmm ... what other inappropriate songs are there?

Ian McGibboney said...

I can think of a few:

"Flood"--Jars of Clay
"Drowning"--Hootie and the Blowfish
"We're On Our Own"--Bobby Brown
"My Heart Will Go On"--Celine Dion
"I Wish It Would Rain"--The Temptations
"Blowin' In The Wind"--Joan Baez
"It's Raining Men"--The Weathergirls
The Miami Hurricanes fight song
"Walking to New Orleans"--Fats Domino (Doubly inappropriate!)
"Let Them Eat"--Cake

Okay, that last one is a joke, but still...
