Caption challenge: bin Laden death shot

The ultimate contest


WINNER DECLARED: Inspired efforts from TheTigerTrainer, marikawashchyshyn, Catelli, Guy Smiley and bergkamp, among others, but I’m awarding victory to MaggiesFarmboy for: “And people said there was not enough French in my speech… ” Flip me an email ( and I shall direct a prize yonder way!

And once again: I’m so, so sorry.

Just kidding, people. KIDDING.


I do have something for you. There IS a caption challenge.

But I warn you: it’s pretty gross.

Some may even call it unsettling. Powerfully so.

People of the internets, only those with the strongest and most robust of constitutions are advised to continue to scroll down to the disturbing image in question…





Please stop screaming. You were warned.

  42. Hurry Up, I hear the police coming up the steps.

  43. Within the past few hours, there's been a -6 (and counting) swing almost every single comment here, except for the last.

    • You're right – what's up with that?

      • I'd guess someone *really* wanted to win the caption contest.

        • Eh?

          • It appears that someone (very possibly noone, the commenter with posts above and below mine as their first comment went up to +8 while everyone else fell the same amount) went through and repeatedly gave a thumbs down to most of the comments on this blog posting, either by calling in friends, or clearing their cookies, or multiple accounts, or something along those lines.

          • I noticed some wild "thumb" swings but thought that it was perhaps an NDP effort to show disapproval of particularly objectionable posts (from their point of view, that is). Who knows. Wasn't me, I can assure you.

            In any event, folks got to get a life.

          • Mine was voted down because nobody on here remembers John and Yoko — or some other reason.

  48. “Yes … both.”

  49. "Jack wanted to show his friend Olivia how well he was doing in French…"
    The cover photo of the "The Video Professors' guide to kissing in public"

  50. Ahem. Should read : “You know Baby, now that we’re the Official Opposition….”

    Thanks for being a good sport, Mr. Feschuk, for letting me push the envelope of good taste and humour.

    Now that they’re the Official Opposition Couple, they’re even more, fair game.

    And feel free to use any of my humour ideas in the future (such as : Jacques “Crotch” Layton).

    Cheers, and Na Zdorovlia !

  51. Blasphemy !

    Even from beyond the grave, Obama bin Laden will be keeping an eye out,
    for infidels like you!

  52. Now that's a happy ending!

  53. Ha! Brilliant! You get my vote!

  54. You've seen it – now you can't unsee it

  55. Jack- "Now, to implement my hidden agenda in the caucus…"

  56. Mr. Feschuk, I believe you've let the cat outta the bag — and here you thought the post-election period would be boring;

    Thomas "UFO" Mulclair (as in, unidentified flying osama)

    Ruth-Ellen "Vegas" Brousseau


  57. Wow u guys employees/spouses/rmt's of the magazine or what? I thought this was an outsiders contest, not an insiders. Who monitors all the count this intensely? So tell me? who is responsible for the swings? What tool were u using to monitor?
    Finally, I stand behind the 9 dot 30 Jack-assed escape clause: What a smear, were there any charges Laid?" I'm clean officer there isn't a thing on me (litterally). ;-)

  58. Dippin’ into the stash
