1st Place - SmokingGun

"Sure I had a little fun. I thought the police file was a classic. And the cedar beam trick no one caught onto. And the Russian guys? Old schoolmates. Wait till Ewart finds out who's bank account he's been putting all that money into."

2nd Place - Proteus:

Sir John melodic inner monologue:
"The house began to pitch, the kitchen took a slitch
It landed on the wicked witch in the middle of a ditch
Which was not a healthy situation for the wicked witch
Who began to twitch, and was reduced to just a stitch
Of what was once the wicked witch"

3rd Place - Bermuda Rasta: Even in retirement, Snidely Whiplash enjoys watching train wrecks.

Honourable Mention

- Blankman: They're laughing now but wait till they meet my replacement.

- Ali: The Guv shows his delight as he prepares to meet Phil Perinchief for a final farewell.

1st Place - Fast Eddy: Today in The Situation Room, Big Bad Wolf Blitzer revealed the historic reconciliation between Goldilocks and Baby Bear.

2nd Place - Lewis Padgett: This shot, taken moments after Paula had just asked Hilary, if that was the infamous "Blue Dress".

3rd Place - Proteus: Visibly dis-pleased and barely able to crack a smile, Coxy didn't have the heart to tell Hilary that when she was talking about HRC, she didn't mean Hilary Rodham Clinton.

Honourable Mentions:

Bermuda Rasta: "What?! This isn't Emmanuel Lewis?"

Gombey House: HRC: "Welcome to Washington, my my we've never seen so many Bahamians here before!"

Dishonourable Mention:

Blankman for too many fat jokes!

Hillary Clinton brings out the best...and worst... in you. I spent this evening cleaning up a few of the comments. I chuckled all weekend at Bermuda Rasta's Emmanuel Lewis crack though.

See you next week. Feel free to send on suggested photos.

3rd Place - Gombey House: Ewart called the new programme "Windows for Transparency in Governance".

Honourable Mentions:

Apologies for having to close the comments down early again this week, and just when momentum was building for some really good entries.

My favourites were:

1st Place - The General: "Jeremiah group receives approval for SDO on the ground between protestors at the candlight vigil"

2nd Place (and eerily prescient of the comment spamming) - Bermuda Rasta: Reminiscent of the "Free Mandela" movement, throngs of "PLP for Christian" members pray for Mr. Dunleavy's deliverance from incarceration over the censorship laws of Chairman Brown. Meanwhile, in the rapidly fading background, Vance Chapman shouts at the disinterested crowd.

3rd Place (and most effort) - Proteus:

Twas the night before Ground Breaking when all across Southlands,
Many folk were stiring with candles in their hands.

The contruction plans were drawn up by Jumeriah with care,
In the hopes that good ole' Uncle Ewart would make sure all was unimpaired.

The sellers were happily thinking there had been no crime,
Whilst visions of dollar-signs danced around in their minds

Grumpy Burch in his old uniform and Uncle Ewart in his white suit,
Had just settled down to count all their loot,

When over in Southlands there rose such a clatter,
Uncle and Grumpy jumped from their seats to see what was the matter.

The candlelight down in the fields gave off a lovely glow,
Illuminating what would be such a frightening show,

And what appeared at the crest of the hill shrouded in screams?,
But Aunt Neletha, Cousin Zane and several shiny diggin machines!

On Caterpillar, on Michigan, on Detroit-Allison, on John Deere,
On Bobcat, on Daewoo, on Fujitsu,

We got land to clear!

Honourable mentions -

Bermuda Rasta: Awaiting his return flight from the Privy Council hearing on BHC, UBP supporters line up for the opportunity to light Saul Froomkins' cigar.

Bermuda Rasta: Celebrating the Curtis McLeod appeal, the DeSilva clan set fire to their BIU cards.

This week's caption competition is early due to the holiday.

Due to last week's problem with comment abuse, I will be watching closely and closing them down overnight and if I'm away from my PC for an extended time.

Winners, and I know you all questioned my judgment last week, will be announced Thursday night.
