Caption Contest #68


UPDATE!  We have winners!
Paul Cat"I wonder how the Saints did this season."
Tim"I'll tell you what's 'beyond all understanding' is how in the heck Heathcliff is still in syndication!"

(I know the photo is rather sacrilegious, but the full story is kind of interesting. You can find it here; big hat tip to CMinor.)

p.s. New music in the MP3 player at left: David Kauffman. I've met this man--he's very cool and his music doesn't get enough attention; it's theologically deeper than most contemporary Catholic or Christian music. I think it's particularly good for personal meditation and retreat work. Enjoy! Book him for a workshop! (No, I'm not related!)

I'm at a loss when it comes to the caption, but thanks for promoting David Kauffman! He's an alum of my university and lives in my hometown. You're very right; he's a wonderfully under-appreciated Catholic musician. In fact, for a while KLOVE Christian music radio played his earliest recordings, until they found out about his strong Roman Catholic faith, I assume.

Filled with what he thought was the Holy Spirit, but probably was just the results of a bad fish taco, James decided to make the Way of the Cross more palatable and relevant to the common people by updating the stations for modern sensibilities and recreating them in a live passion play. Here he is pictured at New Station 7, Jesus stops for coffee and a crossword.

"That Beatle Baily guy gets me every time."

"Hmmm . . . a nine letter word beginning with the letter 'r' that means to come back from the dead. Hmmm . . . what could it be?"

"Blessed are they who can stomach the liberal media, for they shall be satisfied."

"Let's see. I think I'm a Capricorn."

"Wait a second. I NEVER SAID THAT!"

"For those who wish to be my disciple must first take up their crossword and follow me."

"The crux of the matter is the cross."

"I said we 'crossed words' not we 'had crosswords'."

Steve is taking the imitation of Christ in an unexpected direction. Until he spoke with Natalie, he thought he was being a visable witness to the faith -- hopefully inspiring many. In dejection, he looks at the funnies, after she asks him if he may just be desensitizing people against the Second Coming.

Unrelated, the Detroit Lions have managed to make it the entire season without a single win. That's correct. Not a single win. In his homily Sunday, Fr. Mark wished to see a better world, one where maybe the Lions would win the Superbowl. Paused. Then said, "Of course, if that happens, I'm looking east...." :)

"I'd better lay off the caffeine. I'm starting to get those stabbing pains in my head again!"

I vote for Paul Cat's caption: "For those who wish to be my disciple must first take up their crossword and follow me."

Wait... do I get a vote???

CMinor said...

I kinda liked "I wonder how the Saints did this season," though the crossword one was pretty good, too!

Tim, I know what you mean--I wonder that about "Get Fuzzy" sometimes.

I just enabled iTunes today, inspired by your David Kauffman tunes on the sidebar.... and even purchased one of his songs ;-)
