The winner is Meanie the Blue, who clearly took a lot of drugs felt inspired and sent in a bunch of good ones, including:

Vista 2.0 - it's here!
"Now that I'm invisible, I can go anywhere…"
Darth Vader's high school yearbook picture
"This, or the white gold - what do you think?"
Why settle for canned, when you can have fresh-squeezed with one easy pull?
You've tried Santeria...

Meanie the Blue will win a piece of random crap valuable prize.

Choosing a runner-up was difficult, but I’m going with this one, from JayBee:

Brad worried that chicks might not dig the stubble.

In the event that Meanie the Blue is unable to carry out his duties as winner, JayBee will take over for the duration of Meanie the Blue’s reign.

Here are some other strong entries:

From klezmerphan: "THIS will cover my balding pate, and no one will be any the wiser!"

From Dave Diodato: “This would be so cute with my Speedo. No, wait. Thong!”

From Mars Punkin: "Wow! This DOES make your stool softer and easier to pass!"

From baligurl: "I bet the people looking at this ad can't tell I'm naked..."

From Cat R: “How YOU doin?”

And finally, two from Danny:

"Ohmigod, this is, like, so awesome. I'm gonna ask for overnight shipping on the Butt Spa!"

"Now that he had found a space yarmulke in his size, Max was ready to apply to NASA's astronaut-training program."

There were many other excellent ones, including of course any that you submitted, but judi did not like them. Thanks to all who participated, thereby demonstrating once again that the Internet is the most powerful force ever devised for not doing anything useful.

Congrats to Meanie!

First to lose again! Ironic!

YAY Meanie!!! Congrats to you an all the other mentionables!

my absolute favorite!

My favorite was:

"The frequency? It's about 800 megahertz. Anything else you want to know, Mr. Rather?"

Of course, I'm a fan of the obscure pop reference....

Meanie already won? I didn't even get to play! Damn job...

yay meanie.

Thanks for the nod, Dave! Today is my Mothers' 70th Birthday and I was going to take her to lunch...but this was WAY more fun!

Dave liked my contribution! He deemed it a "strong entry!"


*snork* at queens

Onya, Meanie. Good stuff.
(I didn't even know this Caption Contest was on. When did it start? Boy, you gotta be quick.)

Yay, Meanie!

Congrats to Blue! What are you going to pick for your prize? And do you know yet what the "duties" are that Dave is referring to? ;)

I KNEW that if I went into an important and productive conference call, I would miss the highlight of my lowly existence best news of the day.

Thank you, Mr. Blog, sir, judi, and all the other judges. I intend to reign with lots more drugs dignity and grace, yet never lose the common touch.

For my valuable prize, I would like to select the you-know-who DVD, and donate it to The Dread Pirate Chris.

(Congrats to all)

Congrats to Meanie, a well-deserved win!

I got a strong entry -- whoo! -- that gave me shivers!

These were my faves, which I kept track of until I was basically SNORKING all the time, and then stopped keeping track:

Do you have the chutzpah to wear the Head Spa?

My personal favorite didn't make the list:

"It was announced today that one of the former New Kids on the Block singer will be starring as a sidecar in the revised Broadway version of Starlight Express."

I'm a sucker for anything that references a good musical. ;)

That's it, I'm getting Katherine Harris on the phone ...

"For my valuable prize, I would like to select the you-know-who DVD, and donate it to The Dread Pirate Chris."

THAT'S why they call him that.

About the prize options: the random German title translates to something like "Dave Barry Explains what a Real Fellow Is"...maybe that's Guide to Guys?

YAY Meanie !!
I missed this completely, but it doesn't matter - I am no match for all you clever bloglits !
I personally snorked @ Siouxie's "man-handle" - that's what my Dad used to say when we were too rough with something and it broke, so it had a double meaning for me.
I thought all men came with a "handle" ...
Or as Mr. Tele sez, "Hand Warmer" ...

Bravo to MtheB! Really excellent work.

Coupla tips for the "duties": sort the lights from the darks, and don't dry the permanent press items on high heat. Also: shaken, not stirred.

and ...

I also liked erb's "... actually, I do know what you're thinking ..." caption.

I GOT MENTIONED!! woo hoo!

I demand a recount! I smell massive voter fraud! I...well, I'd, I'd do something to win the Barry Manilow DVD, and then I'd mail it to PirateBoy, who really did have the funniest submissions.....

El, methinks Dave was referring to "doodies," not duties.

I liked a lot of other submissions besides my own, too. Many great ones that, frankly, had me quite worried at the prospect of yet another disappointment. But, thanks to all who appreciated mine.

Regarding duties, I thought for sure I would have to take a bullet every time that judi was supposed to get fired. Laundry and bar duty sounds pretty benign next to that, especially since the World Peace gig isn't really working out all that well.

This look would go great with the outfit Raymond Massey wore in "Things to Come" (http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3524892928/tt0028358)

My personal favorite was the one that referenced the Flobee and called it a "Mohawkinator". Oh wait a minute, I was the one that submitted that one! Never mind!
