Well, all I can say is... IT'S ABOUT TIME!
For the last year and a half I've been entering Diesel's caption contests over at his blog Mattress Police Antisocial Commentary. AND... for the last year and a half I haven't won.
Until now. Yay me!
For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, Diesel has been hosting a weekly contest where he cleverly Photoshops himself into pictures of various movie scenes, and then has his readers submit their captions. Later that week his wife picks her favorite 10 and then we get to vote on them.
So what did I win?
Only the envy of hundreds of bloggers, the respect of humorists worldwide, and serious bragging rights.
Oh yeah, and this cool badge - which you will see proudly displayed in my sidebar. That is until it gets moldy and starts to smell and I have to roll it up in a newspaper and throw it away. But that shouldn't be for a while yet.
So anyway, here's my winning caption from this week's contest taken from the movie Righteous Kill starring Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro - and now Diesel as well.
I know... I know! What the hell does that mean? That's not even funny.
Well, that would be true if you hadn't read this yet, which I highly recommend you do, because it's one of the funniest blog posts I've read all year - which for some dumb reason has drawn a lot of flak for Diesel.
Apparently some people took issue with his humor regarding manual labor. Allow me to quote a portion of one commenter:
"You have no respect for anyone. To make fun of someone who is working for you is really the lowest form of inhumanity there is. If you don't like how he is or is not doing whatever it is, then do the work yourself, you lazy ass!..."And that was just one of many comments from people calling him such things such as "an asshole" and "greedy bastard" and more.
Apparently I'm insensitive myself because the only thing I saw in this post was hysterical tasty sarcasm.
Anyway, you be the judge. This post has already gone viral after several people Dugg and Stumbled it to fame and fortune. But that was a few months ago and has since settled down. Maybe we can help bring it back to life.
Because I think Diesel needs a little more attention.*
*Diesel is the author of the book Antisocial Commentary, the blog Mattress Police, the website The Clay Pigeon and the most successful blogging network for humor bloggers on the internet - Humor-Blogs.com. This is the place where humor bloggers get ranked by how many "smilies" they get, which is why you'll always see me begging for clicks on that dumb wide-mouthed smiley thing at the bottom of my posts. And if you have any decency whatsoever you'll click on the stupid smiley thing. Now!
