Jet Noise Caption Contest Hall of Shame

Back in February of 2004, a Great Tradition was born... a Mighty Race of Heroes arose upon the Decks of the Captain's Quarters.

Before them was the Face of the Evil One. Like the fighting men of Agincourt, they did not blench at the sight of danger, but vanquished the Enemy with searing wit and half-vast intellect.

And so their noble deeds have been immortalized in this, the Jet Noise Hall of Shame for future ages to ponder and revere:

Old farts forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But we'll remember, with advantages,
What feats of captioning you did that day!
Then shall your names,
Familiar in our mouths as household words-
Pile On, spd rdr, Purple Raider, JarheadDad,
Be in our flowing mugs freshly rememb'red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And th'anniversry of the
Kerry Caption Contest shall ne'er go by,

From this day to the ending of the world,
But you Noble Hearts in it shall be remembered-
You few, you happy few, you band of brothers;
For you who captioned that twit Kerry that day
Were made as brothers; be you ne'er so vile,
That day hath gentled your condition;
And gentlemen on other blogs now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd
They were not there,

And hold their manhoods cheap whilst any speaks
That Captioned Not upon the Contest Day.

You have the Conn #1 Lyrics:

I've been walking these streets so long
Changing the same old song
I know every crack in these dirty sidewalks of DC
Where wafflin's the name of the game
And nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain
There's been a load of compromising
To the Vets on my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the medals are shining on me

Like a Mekong cowboy
Riding out on a boat in a star spangled Viet Float
Like a Mekong cowboy
Using lies and slander from people I don't even know
And offers coming over the phone

Well I really don't mind the rain
And a smile can hide all the pain
But you're down when you're riding a train
That's financed the wrong way
And I dream of the thing I'll do
With a White House token and the UN tucked inside my crew
There's been a load of compromising
To the Vets on my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the medals are shining on me

Captain's Sailing Song Special Award -- Purple Raider:

(to the tune of Eve of Destruction):
My leathery face, it is expanding
Wrinkles flaring, Botox fading
I need another treatment, but not from Dean,
I don't believe my hair,
the hair weave's looking mean,
And Denny K's tin hat is Looking Green,
And I'll tell you over and over and over again my friend,
Ah you don't believe that I'm a Nam Vet.

May 19, 2004 Captain's Quarters

Best Musical Reference (Gump, You're A *&$%$# Genius!) -- Purple Raider:

"They Call him Kerry, Kerry, faster than ketchup.
No one you see is nuanced as he
And we know Kerry Votes for a bill then against it
Getting the praise from Uncle Teddy.

Everyone loves the Vietnam Vet
Ever so brave and fearless is he
Medals he won sent over the fence
Then displayed for all to see

They call him Kerry, Kerry taxing the rich folks
No one you see is fairer than he
And we know Kerry Kerry lives in five mansions
Him and Teresa and his dog VC"

you forgot flipper

Posted by: Purple Raider at Jun 7, 2004 8:32:13 AM

I'm sorry. I knew I was missing something but I just couldn't stare at it any longer. I figured someone would tell me what it was.

This page took me hours and hours of work, even with Pile On's help compiling the original list (thank you, by the way).

Posted by: Cassandra at Jun 7, 2004 9:34:13 AM

Thank you Cass.

My, my, quite an impressive show of talent.

And of course, we WILL be adding to that list

Posted by: Purple Raider at Jun 7, 2004 12:58:54 PM

You're welcome - I'm sorry I left it out - I knew I was missing something but was just too tired to keep going. Thanks for letting me know :)

Posted by: Cassandra at Jun 7, 2004 1:30:06 PM

Wow!
We are really are a pretty funny bunch.

Posted by: spd rdr at Jun 7, 2004 1:59:29 PM

You guys make me proud :) I am honored to be in such erudite and witty company.

Posted by: Cassandra at Jun 7, 2004 3:13:28 PM

Everyone except me of course. ;=(

Of course, I only played once, and lost (that clever pun using "Bush" to mean her anatomy photo). So I guess if you don't play, you can't win. Just like the lottery.

Posted by: KJ at Jun 8, 2004 8:56:13 PM

You're not the only one KJ. And I've entered plenty of times and haven't won. The guy I thought would win this week didn't even place - go figure...

Posted by: Cassandra at Jun 9, 2004 9:58:10 PM

Oh my goodness ... I had no idea all that talent came from here! Good thing I use guest judges most weeks, or I'd be accused of throwing these contests!

And I love the St. Crispin's Day speech!

Uaaaahhhh...speaking of which, there is a beaut of one going on right now at OTB. The picture alone is worth a 1000 words.
