Here Are Your Photoshop And Caption Contest Winners, God Bless Us Everyone

And Dok wins!!!! OK, actually, no, but we decided that with only 5 entries to our Great Big Rick Perry Photoshop Contest, it wouldn’t hurt to pad things a bit. What happened, guys? We usually get tons of weirdly wonderful entries, but it’s almost as if you couldn’t bear to have Rick Perry’s sour face on your computer at all. (And as for those of you who thought it was a caption contest…) No matter — we will continue with the silly pics, and you will again bring the funneh! After the jump, our winner and runners up, and also too the winner and honorable mentions of the Super Excellent Hannity Caption Contest.

Here Are Your Victoria Jackson Campaign Posters, You Liberal Commie Monsters

We asked you to help Wonkette frenemy Victoria Jackson with her inspiring run for alderthingie of her hometown in Tennessee (not Florida, stupid internet), and you came through! Our winning entry is from Gleem McShineys, and it is titled “V-Jack’s Secretz Revealed.” We were taken by the technical proficiency, as well as the metaphorical eloquence of Ms. Jackson being an empty husk being piloted by a stuffed cat — a veritable Ouroboros of puppetry. We suppose that in a technical sense, since it lacks any words like “vote” or “alderman” or “Victoria Jackson 2014” it may not actually count as a “campaign poster,” but then, maybe Gleem’s intent was to move beyond those shallow outward trappings and force voters to contemplate the inner workings of America’s political machinery. Discuss amongst yourselves. Read more on Here Are Your Victoria Jackson Campaign Posters, You Liberal Commie Monsters…

Here Are Your Strange Anthony Weiner Photoshop Contest Things, Congratulations, You All Lost

Hey, Wonkers, we know we said we’d be giving somebody second place in our Anthony Weiner Photoshop Extravaganza (first place went to shirtlesselfiedarth™ already, for the image we used to announce the contest), but at the very moment we were judging the entries, the Sekrit Chatcave was overwhelmed by an essay containing such epic grad-student jargon and whininess that it just put all your little dick jokes into perspective and made us realize that none of your efforts, not even SayItWithWookies’ Dali-themed Blingee above (we especially like the ’61 Chevy lowrider), could possibly add anything to The Discourse ever again — not that you are supposed to add to the discourse, because that is appropriative, and also theft. And so, the winner of our photoshop contest and all other photoshop contests forever, even at other blogs, is Jessie-Lane Metz, for her outstanding contribution to surrealism titled “Ally-phobia: On the Trayvon Martin Ruling, White Feminism, and the Worst of Best Intentions.” Yes, we recognize that technically, it is not a “photoshop” and it is not “about” Anthony Weiner, but it is far more hilarious and bizarre than any of your actual entries. Also, TRIGGER WARNING. Read more on Here Are Your Strange Anthony Weiner Photoshop Contest Things, Congratulations, You All Lost…

Slate Widget Claims Anthony Weiner Killed Andrew Breitbart

So we thought we’d pretty much exhausted the available fun from Slate’s amusing little “make up a Carlos Danger name for yourself” toy, which is good for literally minutes of hilarity. And then in the Sekrit Chatcave, Editrix Rolando Menace called our attention to a tip from Wonkette Operative Miguel Ángel Catastrophe, and said “Hey, Doktor Emilio Scourge, go check that out!” And check it out we did! Aaaand… it’s either a really happy accident, or somebody really wanted to remind the world that Andrew Breitbart is still dead.

Here Is Your Inevitable Anthony Weiner Photomagraphic Sexting Contest, America!

Well, thank you very much, disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner, and thank YOU very much, Internet. We were just getting ready to sit down and do a thoughtful, nuanced, brilliantly satirical post about that New York Times story on Goldman Sachs manipulating the aluminum market, complete with elaborate Catch-22 references because the whole rotten scheme reeks of Milo Minderbinder getting rich buying eggs for seven cents and selling them for four cents… and then you go and throw Anthony Weiner’s Sexting, Part Two (Electric Boogaloo) in our faces again and all we can think of is “Eww, get that out of our faces,” and “Haw-Haw, Goldman Sacks!” REAL MATURE, AMERICA.

Jump To Your Feet For the Winners of Our Blasphemous ‘On Our Knees For America’ Photo-Chopping Contest!

What an interactive Friday it’s been for you worthly Wokette skum! We had a real live book-writing guy drop by, and some of you actually seemed to have read a little farther than the seven chapters we made it. You also added a whole bunch of suggested (and suggestive) two-word article titles to K-Lo’s Muppet Crying Game. And when we noted that the Family Research Council’s delightful pray-for-America website seemed to have a stealth agenda, you got up off your knees and fell to the task of remixing it, for Big Larffs. And here is our winner, a fantasia on a theme by Michelangelo and several other mutants, from the incomparable Dean Booth. This is precisely the sort of thing we’d like to think the graphics team at call2fall had in mind all along. More winnahs and runners up and also-rans after the jump! We would warn that there is NSFW content ahead, but if you haven’t figured that out yet, you may actually work at the Family Research Council.

Family Research Council’s ‘On Our Knees For America’ Campaign Almost Seems To Invite Trolling…Like Maybe A Photoshop Contest!

So what we have here is a copy of the graphics from the Family Research Council’s “Call2Fall” campaign, which is set for this Sunday, June 30. The event’s FAQ explains that it’s “nothing fancy,” merely a pledge for Christians to take time on June 30 to “call your people to get on their knees and faces before the Lord in repentant prayer for God to reshape our lives and renew our land.” Is the hip, modern “call2fall” slogan biblical? Well of COURSE it is, you silly; in fact, it “comes straight from the pages of Scripture:” If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14). See? The word “call” is in there! God sure comes up with some catchy branding! We would also like to think that He led the FRC to hire a graphics team that couldn’t resist giving trolls ideas. If that logo doesn’t just scream “Wonkette Photoshop Contest,” we don’t know what does! (It probably also screams “NSFW,” too, depending on your workplace’s opinion of ambiguously posed cartoon people).

Yes, It Has Come To This: White House Releases Long-Form Photo Of Obama Firing A Gun

After a bunch of Skeet Truthers totally didn’t believe that Obama goes skeet-shooting at Camp David (because of how he is gay), the White House actually released a photo on Saturday of Obama firing a rifle. Yes, they really did that. It even has an official credit and everything: “President Barack Obama shoots clay targets on the range at Camp David, Md., Saturday, Aug. 4, 2012. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)” Of course, Republicans won’t truly accept Obama as a real leader, like Dick Cheney, until he shoots an old man in the face. But wait, there is more, as the Ghost of Andrew Breitbart and Drudge are informing us. Do you know the White House does not want you to photoshop this picture?
