Winner/Bonus Shot/New Caption Contest

And the winner is….  

  

Matt-Man with, “Mom!?  Dad!?  Tommy’s pet rabbit has been in Barry Bonds’ yard again!!” And Frigginloon with, “I see dead rabbits.” Another twofer this week so they have Solomon’s parable to deal with. Will they cut the kitten in half? I hope not….. 

Bonus shot….

    

This is Paco. Paco is just one of my spectacularly drunken (and lovable) Spanish neighbors. There are many more men named Paco. And there are many more spectacularly drunken neighbors. 

 

 

 New caption contest….

“Listen up you two. I just found out that Santa is fake, the Easter Bunny got hit by a car, and Jesus hates us and wants us to die. But daddy said if we don’t take a nice picture then he’s going to shoot Fido. Ok, ready,…smile!”

Just beat my caption to win a bright blue link, international recognition and your chance for bible lessons from a Zen master. -That’s me.

  2. Haha, you gotta love those early 80s bowl/helmet cuts. They were universally loved by mothers of both boys and girls.

  8. I had a drunken neighbor once. Every day he would walk down to the Arkansas river with a bottle of Jack, a fishing pole and whatever bait he used, and every day he would come back with no fish and a serious buzz on. Then one day he acme walking back with a catfish that must have weighed over sixty pounds. That was the only time I ever saw him actually smile.

    Comment by jammer5 | April 21, 2010 | Reply

    • During my life in Florida I had dozens of neighbors just like that. Although Florida being Florida they would occasionally catch fish. And on even more occasions they would fall of their docks. I had to pull one out of the intercoastal one day. I miss Florida….

      Thanks Jay!!

  10. I love Paco! He looks like someone I could see myself being neighbors with. I mean, as long as he isn’t a spectacularly mean drunk and doesn’t keep me up all night with his loud flamenco dancing and all.

    Congratulations, Matt-Man and FL!!

    I’ll have to come back for the caption. (You know me, I need to obsess compulsively over the photo for a few hours before making any rash submissions…)

    Comment by bschooled | April 21, 2010 | Reply

    • You must love Paco and pick Paco up when Paco falls; these are two of the laws of the land. No, he is the nicest, happiest drunk I’ve ever seen in my life. My other neighbor goes apeshit mad within an hour of his trip to the bottom of a barrel of vino though. Then he screams at the top of his lungs for hours. He’s not so lovable. But you must meet Paco. Paco is Yoda.

      I’ll hope to see you back shortly. Remember, Paco is counting on you.

      Thanks B!!

  11. Caption-

    Jack and his other brother Jack just couldn’t take the humiliation of the bowl haircuts any longer. Unfortunately, their gay big brother just couldn’t seem to figure out what all the futh wath about.

  12. Paco – Caption “wun too tree ..I smile for whiskey”

    Comment by Susi Spice | April 22, 2010 | Reply

    • Paco smiles for any alcohol, or anything else. Paco is a compulsive smiler.

      Thanks Susi!!

  13. I dont know if I want to try and beat your caption – i love it!
    I also love how the boy in the back has his right hand placed perfectly just-so on his brother’s shoulders – delectable! He let things slip with his left hand though and went for the oh-so-casual placement – points deducted for that

    Comment by RubyTwoShoes | April 22, 2010 | Reply

    • Well there you go then. You have a caption in there somewhere. Maybe the formalcies (not a word…damnit) of posing…

      Thanks RubyTwoShoes!!

  15. Congrats Matt-Man and Frigginloon! Love Paco’s upbeat drunkeness. Makes me want to fall on/off the wagon. (I’m not sure which direction is “drinking again.”)

    Caption attempt:

    “And now we know who’s adopted.”

    Comment by Capitalist Lion Tamer | April 22, 2010 | Reply

    • Let’s see….people tend to fall down or off of things when they’re drunk. Then again…does the wagon serve alcohol? If so if you got on the wagon…nevermind, over my head. We should all just aspire to Paco.

      Thanks CLT!!

  17. Congrats to the winners

    Paco looks a lot like the guys who hang out at the Italian cafe in Brooklyn, they’re all named Sal

    Jay RULES this week’s caption

    • Yea I grew up in a ‘Sal’ neighborhood. Sal, Tony, or Mario that was it. But they didn’t get this drunk only loud.

      Thanks Dianne!!

  18. I go nothing caption-wise, I feel like I spent the day with Paco…nice portrait btw.

    • That would be great. I’ll try to make it within the year, since I probably only have a year left in Europe. After that I’ll be even further away. I should just move to OZ!

  20. Ha! Steriods would do it! I’ve been dosing hard on prednisone for that poison ivy, and it’s a nasty steriod. No muscles, but my temper is always ready to go. That rabbit is a killer. Great post . . . I’d love to tip a few with the Pacos. Maybe not. He looks funny, though, and quick to smile. I’ll think about the new caption. This made my morning laughter quota! Thanks, Scott!

    • You should be hitting the weights since you’re on that stuff anyway. I took one cycle back when I played in high school. I had so much energy I didn’t even need to sleep but my temper became an issue. I never took them again because of that. Makes you nutso.

      You’d love Paco!

      Thanks Dan!!

  24. i missed the period at first and thought your neighbor was named Paco Paco. Needless to say, I was disappointed to find out it was only one Paco. If I was his neighbor I’d called him Paco Paco.
