caption contest?


I don't know whether this crazy bastard thinks he's wearing a bullet-proof vest or if he's just terribly afraid of drowning. Got an idea for a caption?

There's more where that picture came from here.


Heeeeere kitty, kitty, kitty.

We don't play with REAL guns in Neverland, officer! It's just pretend foreplay.

... you gotta admit, though... he's certainly got his game-face on... as for the flotation device, maybe he'd over-reacted to that speech about Rivers of Blood...

Does it remind anyone else of the farside cartoon with the caption "How nature says don't touch"?

What's Dwayne Wayne doing playing paintball? I didn't think they allowed that sort of thing at Hillman College!

I have to wonder what amazingly small number of bullets per thousand actually anything they are shooting at. I assume they sometimes hit something, just relying on the law of averages...

.. looking at this photo again, I feel that I simply must point something out...

.. I mean, just look at the color of that life-preserver... I'd say that there is at LEAST a 75% chance that the front of it has a UGA bulldog emblazoned on it... we definitely need a better angled photo of the shooter..

... hey, I'm just saying...

Patrick Ewing may not play in the NBA any more, but if he did he'd be prepared to deal with beer-throwing fans...

If y'all haven't done so yet, go to the site the picture came from. It's an absolute HOOT! These guys shoot on the run, full auto with the weapons raised above their heads, weapons held sideways, and without ever aiming. Sights are for sissies, apparently.

If they ever had to confront a real marksman, even if he had a bolt-action rifle, they'd be dead meat.

A marksman with a Kentucky rifle would have a field day.

Maybe you are all missing the point. What if the point of the shooting is to not really kill anybody? Could this be just a high tech example of territorial posturing?

A true story from Albert Schwitzer. He was in German East Africa when WW I broke out. There was a large German population there, and many of the young men were drafted and sent to fight (be slaughtered) in Europe. After a couple of months, Schwitzer decided to call a meeting of the local chiefs and tell them about the war in Europe, of which they knew essentially nothing. He tried to describe to them how big the war was, but they had no concept of a war that large. He told them that 6 young men from the colony had already been killed. "What" they gasped. "Six men killed? Why don't the chiefs make peace? Who will pay for all those men?"

Another example of primitives in warfare came from the Phillipines. There, the primitive hill people fought low grade wars which resulted in a death every now and then. An American doctor finally figured out these wars where actually just a lethal sporting contest. So, he started a baseball league, and that ended the fighting.

I didn't say this would be funny. Just something to think about.

No, see, he's just trying to restore the balance to the Force that Sean Penn disrupted by wearing a flak jacket onto a boat. Good on him!
