Stringing along caption WINNERS!
We end the work week with this week’s caption contest winners, starting with, as always, the honorable mentions.
 
Any PeeWee reference works for me.              
Tammy A
Ooooh! A preview of one of the new characters for the reboot of Pee Wee's Playhouse!
 
Wishes can be dangerous!
 
Rob Severson
Never, EVER rub Aladdin's lamp and carelessly wish to become "uniquely provocative musician created by a master craftsman".
 
This speaks for itself!

 Pinocchio is always a good call.

Steve M
What's that Mr. Uke? You wanna be a Precision Bass? Well, I wanted to be Les Freaking Paul and look how that turned out.
Kurt V
Although he didn't have the financial backing or tech savvy of his brother Les, Paul Paul was able to keep his shop open with investors such as Tiny Tim and Don Ho. Oh yeah,and Hasbro too.
 
And this week’s WINNER because of Fess Paul is Paul!
Paul H H
Les Paul, known as the Wizard of Waukesha for his ahead-of-their-time guitar innovations, was always just a bit disappointed that his offspring, Fess Paul (pictured here in his home workshop in Cornucopia, WI), never quite achieved similar heights of guitar inventiveness.

Cheering for WINNERS!
Perhaps this photo was an easy one for Trekkies, but I think the rest of you did a FINE job.

Kathleen Hoppe

Who knew cheering could be dangerous?
 
Carl

This could have made a better movie.
 
Kraig
"Land of the Lost" producers knew the movie was in trouble when Will Ferrell insisted that the Sleestaks reenact a Spartan Cheerleader skit in advance of each attack.
 
A scientific approach
 
Steve C.
They tried cutting their cheer short. But it kept growing back.
 
 
And this weeks WINNER of prizes chosen FOR and BY him is…
 
 
Paul H H
While early attempts were termed “interesting” by critics, it wasn’t until much later in their evolution that the Jackson 5 really developed their own style.
 
Have a great weekend and enjoy the gameeven if the Packers aren't there!
