Moooving right along with WINNERS!
As we head into another hot weekend with Rhythm and Booms  and Phish at Alpine Valley, we have some laughs, with thanks to our wonderful caption contest winners, starting with the honorable mentions:

We had a lot of great use of word play this week, like the cow-go carrier and the cowpool lane!
Sam K
What Stella decided was a good fix when Carl the milkman went on vacation for 3 weeks. Although, poor Bessy got a sore back every time she had to ride in the cow-go carrier

Kurt
Beatrice didn't understand that the passenger had to be inside the vehicle in order to use the cowpool lane.

This one makes perfect sense.
JRay78
one too many spotted cows.....now we have a tipsy cow

The MacGyver award goes to Kim for this caption.
Kim Skinner
After being awarded the winning bid at the first Cows on the Concourse, Eunice finds a unique way to get her prize back to the farm. She proclaimed, "You can do just about anything with a little creativity and some twine."

James is very funny.
James S.
Ethel thought that "America's Dairyland" on the license plate just wasn't a strong enough message.

Any caption that quotes an old Woody Allen routine deserves credit!
brianp
The joke was on me. It was the Berkowitzes.

But this week’s WINNER, with his Madison-centric caption is:

Kraig
Whenever Bessie ran off from the pasture, Lillian was certain to find her  passed out at Mickey's Dairy Bar
 
Have a great weekend and see you at Warner Park on Saturday!

A plethora of captions!
The heat is getting to me, but not as much as your great captions, so let’s get to it, with this week’s honorable mentions:
Todd B
In about thirty seconds, you will hear the term "wing nuts" used for the very first time.

Mark N
I know it's on sale, but I still think a stroller is a better idea     

BrianP
Oh those Brits and their hats...

Abbe
I just wonder where you insert the quarter

Kraig
They don't make Carnies like that any more.

Stephen Lee Rich
...and this way we won't need all that security at the airport
 
Art Paul Schlosser
I've been having trouble getting people to watch me perform my music. I start out alright and play a song or 2 and people applaud but then this guy shows up a block away and wears this weird hat with the 2 airplanes flying around him and then he starts singing Jonathon Richmond's song I'm a Little Airplane Now and then he starts saying free rides for the kids and how can I compete with that ?

AND OUR WINNER OF THE JOEY RAMONE CD AND SOME OTHER COOL PRIZES IS...
 
John C.
Eh, it's better than flying United.
 
Have an awesome weekend, stay hydrated and have some FUN!

Shiver me Timbers, I have WINNERS
So it isn’t Talk Like a Pirate Day, but we DID get some great Pirate-Like captions for this week’s photo.
Let’s start with the honorable mentions, all were terrific!   
 
Alicia S
Instead of "Take Your Kid to Work Day" today is; Dress your dog up like the saddest Pirate EVER & haul them around day.
 
Carl
Oh arff. If that cute poodle sees me, I am so doomed. Just go ahead and neuter me while you're at it.
 
John C.
All the pirates loved the captain, but they thought his first mate was a real rear-end.
 
Geno
Aarr Smee, ya scurvy devil! You always give me the heavy end of the chest.

But this week’s WINNER of prizes chosen JUST FOR HIM is:
Kraig
As a young Captain, Yukon Jack was pretty spry. However, as the years wore on, the consensus of the crew was that the old pirate had too much junk in his trunk.
 
Have a great weekend, stay hydrated and get ready for a creepy photo next week!

Wooden you like to see the Winners?
We have come to the end of a work week, the beginning of a new month and the last weekend before the Recall Election. Make sure you get out and VOTE!

This week’s photo was a challenge, but what we lacked in quantity, we gained in quality, so we begin with the honorable mentions:

Love the literary reference.        
John C.
Pinocchio's lies finally caused Gepetto to snap .

I loved the concept of a beaver army.
David
Beaver Army Decimated After Struck Match Takes Out Tinder Tank.

Ain’t THIS the truth.
Kraig
An abundance of weed and spare time, combined with a penchant for woodworking - a deadly combination

This one totally cracked me up.
Todd B
I don't think you are understanding the concept behind the Trojan horse.

What I liked about THIS one was, she went in a totally different direction!
Janet Murray
You know you're in Wisconsin when you see a tank like this carved from a giant hunk of cheese!

The first runner up:
Dana G.
After years of brutal, senseless slaughter at the hands of the paper manufacturers, the trees would have their revenge...

                                                 And this week’s winner    of  these 3 CD’s is…
   Marc Borland
      That whole Iron Age is so overrated

Marc, please contact me so you can get your prize!

Hey..have a great weekend!

World's Worst iPod: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
