Question of the day

Monday, May 13, 2013

* The Question: Caption?

Keep it clean or you’ll be banned. Thanks.

    Springfield Pictures announces casting for a remake of “The Defiant Ones,” the story of two polar opposite prisoners of the Dome chained together by an uncompromising issue.

    K: “Sale was this close to a perfect game. Trout, Pujols, Hamilton — he made them look sick.”


  3. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:31 am:

    “Mr. Phelps, this is my trigger finger, I use it to vote ‘No’ on Conceal-Carry…understand?”


  4. - The unknown poster - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:36 am:

    Mr. Phelps, this is how much I will compromise on a concealed carry bill.


  5. - walkinfool - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:37 am:

    We’re this close.


  6. - Boondocks - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:39 am:

    Unable to agree on CC legislation, the two Democratic legislators agree that the Illinois GOP is “this close” to complete irrelevancy.


  7. - Farmer Joe - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:39 am:

    Do you think we can ever write a bill that both the voters back home like and that the NRA likes?


  8. - The unknown poster - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:40 am:

    Brandon, I will support a “shall issue” concealed carry law as long as the guns are no bigger than this.


  9. - 3rd Generation Chicago Native - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:42 am:

    Sen. Kwame Roual to Brandon Phelps,”If you weapon is just this big, then you can carry and conceal” “That I will agree on”


  10. - Pot calling kettle - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:42 am:

    Can we at least agree that the title of the bill will include the words “concealed” and “carry”?


  11. - Anon - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:47 am:

    “Excuse me while I whip this out.”


  12. - Give Me A Break - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:49 am:

    Roual to Phelps: I’m a Chicago Dem, you are a downstate Dem, yet we have this much in common.


  13. - AFSCME Steward - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:51 am:

    This pic is going on Capitol Fax. Rich can read lips. If we don’t keep it clean, we’re banned for life.


  14. - Rich Miller - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:52 am:

    Anon, I will allow that one to stand because it’s from one of my favorite movies.

    lol

    But nobody else gets a pass. Keep it clean.


  15. - Rich Miller - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:53 am:

    Kwame to Brandon: If we were Republicans, we’d be trying to throw each other out of the party.


  16. - Curmudgeon - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 10:53 am:

    “Your latest proposal? Missed it by th.i.i.i.s.s.s much.”


  17. - Wumpus - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 11:02 am:

    If you need an AK 47, you must feel a little inadequate about other issues, huh?


  18. - Charlatan Heston - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 11:12 am:

    So….with my revolver, I like to pull the trigger in using the crook of my finger. With my semi-automatic, I use the area between the crook and my finger tip. Well at least that’s how Donne showed me.


  19. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 11:26 am:

    “Mr. Phelps, just a smidge of pistachio is the secret to a good Cannoli…”

    “Rep. Phelps, I will only vote for your bill if the language in THIS thick. Anythng more, gets a ‘No’ ..”

    “I talked to Todd. He gave me THIS much Venison sausuge to get my support too …”

    “I am going to move my fingers apart, when I get to the size of the bullets you want approved for Conceal-Carry, stop me … ready?”

    “When Skip made Gravy, he would say just a pinch of garlic, and melt it first in a sause pan.”

    “When I send my other Amendment over to the House, how think does it have to be for a really good “Bill Toss” for Rep. Bost… this thick?”

    “I have a file this thick on ‘Bills to make Mike Bost Edgy.’ I can email that to you if you want.”

    “What is real cute is that the Senate GOP is this close to 20 whole members …”

    “I am going to give you THIS much leeway attacking my Amendment before I pretend to be all mad, then I want you to pretend to be all mad, but only that much of a window, ok?”

    “I can snap my fingers and get a busload of protesters here as quick as you, Ok, me first Brandon… ready?”


  20. - Dozer - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 11:31 am:

    You hold it like this? But it comes out of the box sideways. . . .


  21. - Wensicia - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 11:33 am:

    This bill, Mr. Phelps, should you decide to accept it…

    And, as always, should you or any of your I.M. Force be caught passing a different bill, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions.


  22. - The Captain - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 11:38 am:

    “This is a picture of two thoughtful, reasonable people from opposite parts of the state trying to find common ground. For once there is no punchline here.”


  23. - Esquire - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 11:39 am:

    Phelps to Raoul: You can take a legislator out of Evanston, Kwame, but you can’t take the Evanston politics out of the legislator.

    Springfield’s own Lennon and McCartney:

    Try to see it my way,
    Do I have to keep on talking till I can’t go on?
    While you see it your way,
    Run the risk of knowing that our love may soon be gone.

    We can work it out,
    We can work it out.

    Think of what you’re saying.
    You can get it wrong and still you think that it’s all right.
    Think of what I’m saying,
    We can work it out and get it straight, or say good night.

    We can work it out,
    We can work it out.

    Life is very short, and there’s no time
    For fussing and fighting, my friend.
    I have always thought that it’s a crime,
    So I will ask you once again.

    Try to see it my way,
    Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong.
    While you see it your way
    There’s a chance that we might fall apart before too long.

    We can work it out,
    We can work it out.

    Try to see it my way,
    Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong.
    While you see it your way
    There’s a chance that we might fall apart before too long.

    We can work it out,
    We can work it out.

    “I don’t know about guns, but I am this close to opening a can of whoop-ass.”


  26. - Anonymous - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 1:31 pm:

    KR– The eyes are windows to the soul, but you can see the windows to my brains on my forehead.


  27. - Greatplainser - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 1:32 pm:

    “Brandon, you know those little lemon cookies in the candy room? Well…I may need a few if I’m gonna allow your language.”


  28. - Ghost - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 1:43 pm:

    KR: you just need a good zip gun about this big….


  29. - anon sequitor - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 1:43 pm:

    Ok, Brandon, just how small is the brain of that ISRA leader who keeps sending out those stupid alerts?


  30. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 1:53 pm:

    “In the big picture of ALL the members of the General Assembly, your GOP Caucus …”

    “Just a pinch between your cheek and gum …”

    “I happend to ge Golfing this weekend and Tom Cross showed me this new way to grip the club for more Distance …”

    “And when I ran in to Jason Plummer at the Bud Billiken Day Parade and Jason asked where Bud was, I was this close …”

    “Actually, I was this/close to changing my name to David Phelps when I was a kid …”

    “President Cullerton told me once, show this much compassion before you lower the boom. Great advice.”

    “When someone says something THAT Dopey, go like this and say, ‘give me your “man card” back’…”

    “I looked them in the eye, put my hand like this and said, ‘Conceal and Carry, I dno not think it’s means what you think it means’ … and I walked away Brandon.”

    “No, the Speaker likes his apples cut like squares, not spears … like this …”

    “So I go BACK to Starbucks and I show them… ‘you call this “light froth?”…’ I mean, I wanted a Latte, not ‘Air Milk’ right?”

    “Don’t tell anyone, but I just took some of Rep. Lang’s Brownies… not much, jus this much, and now I have 3 bills on the Senate floor to run … “


  31. - Arthur Andersen - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 2:08 pm:

    Trotter asked me to bring his “carry-on” back from session-I came this close to saying yes.”


  32. - Exhausted - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 2:10 pm:

    I just flipped a quarter, heads I get my bill, tail you win….


  33. - SuperStar - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 2:17 pm:

    I am Sen. Kwame Raoul and I will be ordained by the media become their new darling. I will get tons of media exposure and praise that will launch me to the highest level of State office. So obey me phelps obey me!


  34. - railrat - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 2:30 pm:

    don’t tell nobody but out at Sonny’s I was this close to a 10X with a .45


  35. - Just Me - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 2:34 pm:

    I squish all the gun-lovers heads. I squish them one by one.


  36. - Steve - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 2:43 pm:

    You can’t scrape walls with that kind of appropriation.


  37. - Mayberry vs Mount Pilot - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 3:53 pm:

    Ain’t not!
    ‘Tis too!
    Ain’t not!
    ‘Tis too!
    Ain’t not!
    ‘Tis too!


  38. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 4:21 pm:

    “I-L-L…”

    “When I say ‘Go’, you say ‘White Sox’?”


  39. - Arthur Andersen - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 5:06 pm:

    I can’t believe I came this close to hiring Oswego Willy’s “pal” to drive the kids’ “party bus” to Prom.


  40. - Just The Way It Is One - Monday, May 13, 13 @ 7:23 pm:

    I will choose to be positive and say “Hope at work–one of the three greatest Gifts given to human beings–as identified by St. Paul in 1 Corinthians 13.” Or better yet, from the words of Jesus Christ: “…seek and you will find….”-Gospel of Matthew 7:7 (New American Bible). I don’t know if they’re FINDing any common ground yet, but you have to give ‘em both credit for at least MAYbe trying to scrounge up SOME kind of workable compromise!
