Caption contest!

Tuesday, Apr 10, 2012

* Yes, I swore on my life that yesterday’s post was the last roast story ever. But this isn’t a roast story. It’s just a caption contest featuring a pic of Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka and Rep. Jack Franks at my roast…

Winner gets something. I haven’t decided yet what it is.

    JBT - “‘Caption Contest’ means I am taking a nap”


  2. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:05 am:

    JF - “I’ll yell ‘What about Rod’ and your say …”

    JBT - “What was HE thinking?”


  3. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:07 am:

    JF - (whispers) “…I.L.L. ..???”

    JBT - “Jack, I went to Northwestern”


  4. - CircularFiringSquad - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:09 am:

    JBT: Wipe That Silly Smirk off your Mug or Capt Fax will put us in a caption contest
    JF: Great…more free pub without doing anything meaningful.
    JBT: Now let’s sneak out for a smoke


  5. - Didn't make it - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:10 am:

    “No, Judy. It’s RICH Miller, not Roger Miller. He’s the King of the Dome, not the King of the Road.”


  6. - Cincinnatus - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:11 am:

    Judy is holding a paper describing Illinois’ budget problems. Jack is holding the solution…


  7. - retired - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:13 am:

    JBT: No, Lt. Colombo, I never said that.


  8. - Ahoy - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:14 am:

    Jack, I’m glad to see you wearing the tie I bought you at the salvy.


  9. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:15 am:

    JF - “‘I met her on a Monday and my heart stood still’ …Judy?”

    JBT - “I don’t sing duets, Jack.”


  10. - unclesam - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:19 am:

    JBT: “I’m sorry, I thought you were Larry Walsh.”


  11. - Skeeter - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:22 am:

    “There is nothing to worry about, dear. Fran Eaton says I’m also part of the Democrat Propaganda Machine. She says that about everybody including Dennis LaComb.”


  12. - Steve Bartin - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:24 am:

    JF- “Judy you look great.”

    JBT-”Thanks, I don’t have much competition: after all Cook County brings out the best in me.”


  13. - Give Me A Break - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:25 am:

    JBT to JF: Hair coloring, look into it.


  14. - Bill - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:26 am:

    C’mon Jack! You can tell me…one Republican to another.


  15. - railrat - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:26 am:

    JF; “don’t tell nobody but I AM a Republican”!
    JBT; “NO kidding?”


  16. - just sayin' - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:26 am:

    No I don’t have one Judy but I’m pretty sure you can’t smoke in here anyway.


  17. - Skeeter - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:29 am:

    I actually had a brain freeze and thought Jack Franks was a Republican, so my comment above makes little sense. In my defense, he often acts like a Republican, and it is still early so that may excuse my confusion.


  18. - Hopalong Cassadeech - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:31 am:

    Apollo Creed: Ain’t gonna be no rematch.
    Rocky: Don’t want one.


  19. - A Naughty Moose - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:33 am:

    Must be a reverse negative. Franks isn’t to the left of Topinka on anything.


  20. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:34 am:

    JF - “Say that joke again …”

    JBT - “If you don’t know why it’s funny, then I can’t help you.”


  21. - wordslinger - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:34 am:

    Gee, our hair smells terrific!


  22. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:35 am:

    JF - “I would love to be on Chicago Tonight, I’m a huge fan.”

    JBT - “Jack, Carol Marin is over there …”


  23. - Michelle Flaherty - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:41 am:

    Really, Rich? You’re taking a nap already.


  24. - OneMan - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:49 am:

    Can you believe what they charge for a drink here….


  25. - @all - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:50 am:

    How about winner gets Rich to come to their office to do their work while THEY take a nap.


  26. - anonymice - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:55 am:

    Before I dance with you on camera, please fill out this criminal history sheet.


  27. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:56 am:

    If JBT is “Beans” (as in “counting beans”), then the caption is:

    “Beans and Franks”


  28. - Apple - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:56 am:

    JDF: Thoughts on being my Lt. Gov?
    JBT: Call me.


  29. - OneMan - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 10:59 am:

    Yes Judy that joke may kill most people because it is the funniest joke in the world that causes people to laugh themselves to death.

    There is a chance, a small chance, that if you tell it even though it will kill the rest of the people in this room, that Mike Madigan may in fact crack a small smile…

  30. - WazUp - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 11:12 am:

    I may look like your crazy old aunt but if you lost 40 pounds you’d look just like Bill Clinton!


  31. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 11:19 am:

    JBT - “Jack … its ‘B.A.A.R.’ … not ‘B.A.R.R.’ like your Press release says …”


  32. - Pot calling kettle - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 11:23 am:

    OK, Jack, here is the next bill we want you to run.


  33. - Pot calling kettle - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 11:24 am:

    Jack, if you want to do a puppet show, you need puppets on your hands.


  34. - Pot calling kettle - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 11:25 am:

    Jack and Judy discuss their plan to switch jobs for a week.


  35. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 11:29 am:

    JBT - “Jack, you owe me a Carton of smokes already …”


  36. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 11:31 am:

    JBT - “You keep asking and I keep telling you … You are at the ‘Kids Table’ … I’m sorry”


  37. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 11:34 am:

    JBT - “I don’t care what you bet Saviano, I will not say the word, ‘jellybean’ so you can win “Roast Bingo’ …”


  38. - zatoichi - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 11:39 am:

    JBT: You look just like Cliff Barnes on ‘Dallas’.


  39. - Boone Logan Square - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 11:51 am:

    “No, don’t take the cannoli.”


  40. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 11:52 am:

    - Boone Logan Square -

    lol … well done!


  41. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 12:15 pm:

    JF - “Really, Judy … ‘Rosebud’ was a sled?”


  42. - Jade_rabbit - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 12:15 pm:

    JBT: “Jack, I do love a good Polka, but I really must decline.”


  43. - WazUp - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 12:23 pm:

    I just stole Lisa Madigan’s roast notes…here you take em they’re really not that funny!


  44. - dave - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 1:54 pm:

    Judy: “Hi, Jack! I see that Tom Cross couldn’t make it tonight, so it’s great to see that at least one House Republican was able to be here!”


  45. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 2:29 pm:

    JBT: “Well, I received an invitation. How did you get in?”


  46. - ChicagoDem - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 3:00 pm:

    JF:”I know a surgeon who can fix your turkey neck.”
    JBT:”Really? What’s the surgeon’s name.”


  47. - WazUp - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 3:27 pm:

    You think that’s funny, I just had Miller’s car towed and placed in Rahm’s parking spot!


  48. - reformer - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 3:34 pm:

    JF: What were you thinking?
    JBT: I hated Blago even worse than you did.


  49. - amalia - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 4:00 pm:

    another edition of… “Hairy and Scary.”


  50. - Arthur Andersen - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 4:06 pm:

    JF; Judy, you should invest some of the State’s money in Instagram. It’s going to make a lot of money someday.
    JBT: Instagram? What the h*** is Instagram? Is that like a telegram? I can’t even get the State to invest in Coke or Pepsi.


  51. - aufjunk - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 5:39 pm:

    “Just playing around now, here comes the thing-that-passes-for-my-left-hook at that thing-that-passes-for-your-chin.”


  52. - Dirty Red - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 5:56 pm:

    I don’t know, Jack. How many HDems DOES it take to screw in a lightbulb?


  53. - Pot calling kettle - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 8:49 pm:

    You can be as charming as you want, Jack, but I’ll never agree to have my picture taken with you!


  54. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Apr 10, 12 @ 11:07 pm:

    Franks: “Amazing. You’re the third impersonator I’ve bumped into this evening, and all of you look just like her, but ten years younger.”

    JB: “It’s me, you twit. And this is the third time we’ve bumped into each other this evening.”
