Winner/Bonus Photo/New Caption Contest

           

 And the winner is…….

  

 

        

Jay with….“Jimbo and Shastina seemed to have it all. Looks, money and the most awesome pet parrot in the world. Then one day it all when horribly wrong. After a night of partying, Max the Parrot went into a drunken, drug fueled rage after listening to Cole Porter albums backwards and murdered both Jimbo and Shanstina in their sleep.”       

I just couldn’t resist the image of the parrot killing the couple. I’m sick like that.           

Bonus Photo….. 

 

A sunset from my old dock in Florida. I'm a sappy sucker for sunsets.

New Caption Contest….. 

 

I’m telling you Jimbo, that is part of the rationale that the Fed espouses with its low interest rate regime. Not only does it allow banks to repair their balance sheets, it also encourages investors to put money into riskier assets in order to get some return on their investments. Over $260 billion has gone into bond funds this year, and just $2.6 billion into stock funds. However, you have to balance that with the fact that some $400 billion has left money market funds paying less than 0.2%. So there is some movement to capture yield. Then we can buy us some more brews!!

Sorry for using the same photo twice in two posts, but this was way too good to pass up. Anyway, just beat my caption to win international recognition, a stunning blue link and your own ‘porch potty!’

  1. Your caption will be hard to beat this time, mi amigo. I just had a flash of Bubba looking out at that Florida sky down in the Keys . . . he could cast for Coleman, except the trailor would have to be rust colored . . .

    . . . this will be a tough one; I’ll be back later. Great pics!

    • Thanks buddy, I enjoyed that one myself. But since I can never win my own contest (it would make it look rigged) you have plenty of chances.
      Ah yes, this was the land of Serge! How can you not love it?

      Thanks Dan!!

      • Okay . . . B is going to be hard to beat, but here goes:

        “Ahm tellin’ ya, it’s a monster! Lemme jus’ take this cell camera and get you a picture!”

        Classic picture; great contest; keep up the killer blog!

        • That’s a good idea in real life too. You know, I’m always bragging about my umm….. ‘bathroon skill set’ for lack of a better phrase. Anyway, yea I’ll just take a picture next time.

          Thanks Dan!!

  2. “Can you hear me now?”

    ps. Gorgeous photo, Scott. It’s so beautiful that it almost doesn’t look real…

    • Good caption B….apt, applicable and funny! When I bought that camera for my wife, I also bought her this cool notebook from Barnes and Noble and the idea was to take a pic of the sunset every night for a year. I ended up doing it myself instead, sporadically for a couple months. I was able to get about 15 or 20 that are just blow your doors off beautiful. We lived on the intercoastal with the actual Treasure Island beach just a ¼ of a mile away. So beautiful….I miss it sooo much…..sob…

      Thanks B!!

  3. I’ve got nothing for the redneck photo, but I LOVE the sunset bonus photo. I love sunsets as well.

    It’s a stunning one, Scotty boy!

    • Great caption, Jay! Killer parrots!

    • Another contender Jay. You are a Caption phenom! Just don’t go getting 12 mistresses now.

      Thanks Jay!!

  6. Oh, and I think that if we tried, we could make Parrots just as scary and murderous as clowns. If you think about it, they’re pretty freaky already.

    Comment by Jay | January 15, 2010 | Reply

    • While I agree that Parrots are indeed scary and murderous (don’t forget I grew up in Pittsburgh during the Pirate’s ‘drug years’ and the Parrot was no abstainer, let me assure you) I don’t think they’ll ever scare me as much as those fucking clowns. Stephen King’s ‘It’ was the final nail in the ‘evil clowns’ coffin for me.

      Thanks Jay!!

    • That’s awesome FJ! There is nothing more sacred to a redneck than their ancestral meth-cooking grounds. I’m going to now use that phrase on every possible occasion!

      Thanks FJ!!

  11. We caught up with The Tea Party candidate for President in 2012 at his campaign headquarters. Red Woody Johnson promises to stay on the phone until Sarah Palin agrees to be his running mate.

      Thanks Rooster!!
