SQNCC #4 Is In the Can

In honor of the Winter Olympics, I have selected Gold, Silver and Bronze winners winners this week.

Field Marshall Earl Kitchener Hussein says:


Gold -- Kevin Murphy (and Sgt. Fluffy): "You want the truth? You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!"

Silver -- Lynxx Pherrett: "Our destination is the planet Sha Ka Ree, which lies beyond the Great Barrier at the center of the galaxy."

Bronze -- Rodney: "I pay a dollah for that!"

I'd like to thank everyone that entered and especially those that mention this humble contest in their vastly more frequently visited blogs. Note to Rodney: generally speaking, brevity remains the soul of wit, but sometimes a great notion requires a few more words. In my undocumented, unpublished, unaccountable, and yet, highly variable scoring system, wit offers the highest degree of difficulty and therefore scores the most points, but pop culture references (the more obscure the better, but not so obscure that I don't get them), double entendres, triple entendres, show tunes, criticism of the NCAA, and flattering remarks give you the best chance to stand on the podium. And since the scoring results are multiplied rather than added to come up with a final score, the more tricks you can pack into your twizzle without falling down, the better. Oh, and cash bribes work well too.

Damn, if only I hadn't closed the contest.

Unfortunately my mind keeps coming up with captions long after contests are finished.
