    Rep. Mike Zalewski uses his hypnotic powers to will Todd Vandermyde not to open his mouth.


  2. - Empty Chair - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:07 am:

    Zalewski thinking to himself: “Don’t look directly at the finger. Don’t look directly at the finger. Don’t look directly at……. OH GOD OH GOD I LOOKED AT IT.”


  3. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:08 am:

    “Ask that again…

    Ask it again I will take the #$@& #$ Microphone and (Bleep for 3 seconds) … and your Dog too!”


  4. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:10 am:

    “You forget, I’m the Mayor. I know where you live, ok?”


  5. - dave - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:12 am:

    “You let f*&^!@# KEN DUNKIN out-maneuver you?!?!”


  6. - phocion - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:15 am:

    Zalewski thought bubble: “Did he just say ‘pull my finger?”


  7. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:17 am:

    “I am quite certain Mike Zalewski doesn’t want to disappoint me. I hate being disappointed.

    I remember getting a birthday gift.

    I was dissapointed.

    I went to my friends’ house who gave me the gift, knocked on the door, asked for my friend, and when he came to the door, I showed him the gift he gave again …

    I proceded to take a bat I brought along and smashed the gift into a thousand pieces.

    I took out a plastic bag I had in my back pocket, opened it, put every piece, even the most tiny of tiny, in the bag and tied it up top.

    I gave the bag to my friend, pieces almost ripping the plastic, looked him in the eye, like I am looking at you, and said…

    ‘I wanted to let you know, I was disappointed.’, …and I handed him the bag.

    That was 33 years ago, and I haven’t spoken one word to him. His family still lives across the street from my parents.

    Mike Zalewski doesn’t want to disappoint me. I think he knows that.”


  8. - OneMan - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:20 am:

    The exact moment Rep. Zalewski realized that he was working with Rahm…


  9. - OneMan - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:21 am:

    Rep Zalewski is surprised an elected official would suggest so explicitly someone do that do that to the horse they rode in on.


  10. - Tom B. - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:22 am:

    Dammit, beaten to the punch on finger jokes.


  11. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:22 am:

    “I made it clear; you do not want to be “dead” to me….”


  12. - Quizzical - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:23 am:

    RE: If this bill doesn’t pass maybe I’ll start carrying a gun. How do people feel about that? You disappoint me — BANG! You’re a jerk — BANG!

    MZ: I knew it was a bad idea to bring him on on this.


  13. - So. ILL - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:28 am:

    MZ: Worst finger gun demonstration ever.


  14. - OneMan - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:29 am:

    Rep Zalewski just realized he had been to Arby’s for lunch.


  15. - Jimmy - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:29 am:

    “Hey Mike, why are all the Quinn liaisons taking all the seats?”


  16. - Bogart - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:30 am:

    Zalewski - upon realizing he is not indispensable.


  17. - Bogart - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:30 am:

    Zalewski - upon realizing he is not indispensable.


  18. - OneMan - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:31 am:

    Rep Zalewski was the first to see Mike Madigan enter the room


  19. - tsavo - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:39 am:

    “Hey Mike, I am going on a ride-along with CPD tonight. Is this how you throw the pitchfork?”


  20. - Weltschmerz - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:47 am:

    The drums have started. Go to the council chambers. Hear and obey.


  21. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:54 am:

    “I always get the ‘last word’… those who go against me may not be around to hear it, but I get it…”


  22. - in the city - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 9:57 am:

    Poor Mike, but these are too funny. It’s such a great picture - so glad it’s a caption contest. Classic.


  23. - Todd - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 10:00 am:

    I’m in between Rahm and Vandermyde, what did I get myself into?


  24. - SirLankselot - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 10:11 am:

    “All Glory to the Hypnotoad.”


  25. - Mike Z. - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 10:13 am:

    I swear I’m only doing resolutions and Task Forces next Spring.


  26. - 47th Ward - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 10:37 am:

    Empty Chair, that’s as funny as it gets. Well done.


  27. - zatoichi - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 10:38 am:

    RE: Just check the tie, man. If it ain’t tight, no use going on.
    MZ: What?!


  28. - Huh? - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 10:40 am:

    Oh god, I hope the imodium kicks in soon.


  29. - OneMan - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 10:42 am:

    Rep Zalewski is surprised when the mayor announces that Zalewski is going to be Quinn’s Lt Gov candidate.


  30. - Biker - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 10:46 am:

    Oh my god I left the iron on!


  31. - Mittuns - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 10:51 am:

    Y u no pass gun bill?

    Zalewski’s expression reminds me way too much of this:http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/y-u-no-guy


  32. - Ready To Get Out - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 10:51 am:

    Zalewski - “I do believe, I do believe…”


  33. - Bill White - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 10:54 am:

    Rahm announces that “the Combine” has chosen Rep. Mike Zalewski as Pat Quinn’s running mate.

    Unfortunately, they forgot to tell Zalewski.


  34. - titan - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 10:55 am:

    It was some really killer weed…look, Mike is still buzzed from it


  35. - Ghost - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 10:58 am:

    In an episode of stunning clairvoyance, Rep. Zalewsiki realizes just how fast his bill will get derailed on procedure.


  58. - G.I. Joe - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 2:29 pm:

    Zalewski: I can’t believe this guy believes what he is saying! It hasn’t worked for decades, how does he think it will work now?


  59. - anonymouse - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 2:43 pm:

    Geez Rahm, like I said, ” I was tripping a lil too much Xanax, cut me some slack already!”

    Zalewski: You’re going to put the finger where ???


  62. - AFSCME Steward - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 4:09 pm:

    Rahm Emanuel: Did I ever tell you about my run in with Sharia law ? I was in Afghanistan. A Taliban cut me off in traffic. I flipped him the bird. They removed half my finger as punishment.


  63. - Dennis R - Friday, Nov 8, 13 @ 4:10 pm:
