election08: caption challenge #7 (special sunday edition)


I wasn’t at this event, but I’ve seen enough horror movies to know there must have been a bathroom mirror in front of Stephane Dion. And in about three seconds he’s going to spit his toothpaste into the sink, wipe his face, look up into the mirror and – aaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiii!!!

Anyhoo: you know the drill. Write up a caption in the comments section below. Try to make it have loads of wit and trace elements of insight. Winner to receive something delicious (literally or metaphorically – you decide).

In addition to your caption, please also include your best spelling of a shriek of horror. You see mine up there – aaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiii!!! – but there’s got to be much better ways of doing it than that. Could come in handy for progressive Canadians on election night.

election08: caption challenge #7 (special sunday edition)

  1. Justin Trudeau: Just think. Someday, I will be comme Stéphane Dion. I will be chef of the Parti Liberal of Toronto and Montréal.

  2. Dion: Et tu, Brute?

  3. Justin:Je vais couper your brains et mange votre knowledge!
    Dion: Aiiiiiiieeeeeaaahhhh

  4. You’re dead meat, Dion!

  5. Mon Dieu! Look at the ear wax on this man. No wonder he isn’t listening to the electorate.

  6. Everything would go tellement mieux for him if he would just switch randomly, au hasard, from one langue to the other. It’s the secret of my réussite — that and excellent genetics, but que voulez-vous, he’s out of luck there!

  7. “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh! The Shadow knows…”

  8. damn, I coulda just went to the dep and picked up a six pack…ah well, smile & look interested.

  9. Can I have the mirror next? I,m really trying to perfect my Sir John A. look.

  10. I know the Heimlich maneuver but I’m going to do the country and the Liberal party a favour and not…..

  11. Justin Trudeau smiles while plotting the best way to kill Dion in the most bilingual (frenglish) way possible.

  12. Justin: “So bright… So beautiful… Ah, Precious…”

    Dion: “What did you say?”

    Justin: “Master should be resting. Master needs to keep up his strength. *Gollum, gollum*”

    (My Shreik of Horror: AAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!)

  13. Trudeau: Chin? Check. Bangs? Check. Brow? Check. Cologne? Check.

    Dion: It is not a question of expanding, it is a question of reallocation of existing faits.

    Trudeau: Something’s happening. I’m not the Jedi I should be. I want more. And I know I shouldn’t.


  14. “I got my eyes set on your job, Dion.” – Trudeau

  15. I think that’s a tie between Ben and Jack…

  16. I’m thinking an appropriate shriek of horror from a Canadian should be spelled Ehhhhhhhhhhhhh!


  17. Stéphane, I grew up with Pierre Elliott Trudeau. I knew Pierre Elliott Trudeau; Pierre Elliot Trudeau was my father. Stéphane, you’re no Pierre Elliott Trudeau.

  18. Just think: if he’d let me run in Outremont for that byelection, I wouldn’t have to be in PAPINEAU where I’m up against a popular, smart Haitian-born grandma everyone likes; and where every separatist with an ax to grind against my father seems to be popping out of the east-end Montreal woodwork!! Well I’m gonna win it anyway!!


  19. Je sais que the plagiarism challenge etait la last semaine, mais I couldn’t help myself:

    You start to play it and it’s like somebody’s nightmare. And then this man comes on, smiling at you, right? Seeing you… through the screen. Then when it’s over, your phone rings, someone knows you watched the tape… and what they say is, “You will die in nine days.”

    – The Ring (2002), slightly modified

  20. ‘Always be patient with the patient” Justin Trudeau

  21. “Oh, I thought they meant the one in Manitoba.”

    [“Oh” being an expression of, um, very mild horror.]

  22. Dion: “EEK! Une souris!”

    Justin: “I can so take him.”

  23. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, brains!

  24. Mmmmmmmmmmmm, lack of brains!

  25. Justin Tredeu, You will be the best and you are the best.
    You do have that fire in you to be future Prime Minister of Canada.
    Wish you all the best.
    Mr. Dion is doing his best to share his room with Mr. Harper, Mr. Layton
    Because, Mr. Harper & Mr. Layton doesn’t do they bed and clean there Kitchen

  26. Francien wins for SURE hahaha

  27. well, obviously wells has the best entry, but i’ll be damned if i’m going to buy him something delicious – so ottawa jeff, you are the man: just the right number of m’s in your entry, which also happens to take into account trudeau’s terrifying about-to-feast zombie stare.

    send me your details via email and whether you’d like the “something delicious” to be literal or metaphoric.

  28. I can see clear through!

  29. And here I had a dern tootin’ entry all flowing through my fingers, and it’s over. Sigh.

  30. Dude, I am SO picturing myself in your office right now.

  31. … I see dead people …

  32. Maybe Mom was right, the Marijuanna Party doesn’t suck this much.

  33. “My Dad is more socialist than your Dad!”

  34. “Can he like even spell acting class. “
