Even as a child, Barack Obama already showed his compassion:

"Please loosen your tie, sir. An invisible neck aches, too."

Jeff

"I represent the Obama platform. Nicely dressed, but there's nothing there."

bill912

As a child, Tiger Woods once met Claude Raines.

Inocencio

"No, it is I who will eat you!"

Ok, I had to get that out of the way...

Take care and God bless,

Dark Radiance

That's Mr. Pencil Head to you, you young socialist whippersnapper.

JEFFREY

Don't call me an empty suit Obama told the child.

FrDonMalin

The current state of affairs in the Anglican/Roman Dialogue.

The Masked Chicken

There once was a stud from Hicks,
Who thought that his neck was too thick.
He purchased son cream,
that let off some steam,
And now all the girls call him, "Sticks."

The Chicken

And this is not a caption: Now that Jimmy has brought back a caption photo post, when will we see vacation pictures with his boot? He should have at least ONE from the Alaskan cruise, right?!?

radio45

Mighty Glad to meetcha Mr. Theocon.

JoAnna

Jeff wins, IMO. :) But here's mine:

"I, for one, welcome our new invisible overlords."

Nice to meet you son, I am John Johnson and I want to be your next mayor. I can assure you, my government will be fully transparent.

Mary Kay

"See kid, this is what happens when you don't respect others. Your insides shrivel up and disappear and pretty soon, all that's left is a stick to hold up the hat."

Olav

Buncha comments about Obama - apparently just 'cuz there's a black kid in the photo. This only reinforces why I'm getting so sick of self-righteous white arch-conservative Catholics who ostracize and mock those not like themselves. Go ahead & feel all pious because you go to latin mass while you push people away from the church.
Mt 23:23 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You pay tithes of mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier things of the law: judgment and mercy and fidelity. (But) these you should have done, without neglecting the others.

bill912

"...I'm getting so sick of self-righteous white arch-conservative Catholics who ostracize and mock those not like themselves."

Speaking of hypocrites...

Michael

Go ahead & feel all pious because you go to latin mass while you push people away from the church.

Hey! I go to Latin mass and my comment poked fun at the paleness and pompousness of Englishmen. Did I push the English away from the Church?

bill912

And Jimmy pushed pencil-necked geeks away from the Church.

I can see us having fun building on this tangent.

Mary Kay

Olav,

The kid has nothing to do with the Obama comments. You could take that kid completely out of the picture and the Obama captions would still be the most apt.

BobCatholic

>I'm getting so sick of self-righteous white arch-conservative Catholics who ostracize and mock those not like themselves.

I'm getting so sick of self-righteous atheistic arch-leftist mirror worshippers who ostracize and mock those not like themselves, like Myers.

Magdelaine

Help! My neck has swallowed my head!

DanielT

"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me!"

wolskerj

M. Magritte greets a young admirer.

LarryD

"Go ahead & feel all pious because you go to latin mass while you push people away from the church."

I mentioned Sue Storm (The Invisible Girl), so I must be pushing all those female super heroes away from the Church.

Marty Helgesen

I don't have a caption, but here is a relevant picture of me and a companion:

Mary Kay

Well, yes, I am from Sleepy Hollow. Why do you ask?"

dim bulb

It's rather obvious that it's the empty suit and not the kid's skin color that motivated the Obama comments. The comments would have been made had the kid been white, Asian, or pink with purple polka dots. Your casual assumptions about white Catholics probably says something about your own bigotries.

Barbara

I don't have a caption, but the only time I've ever seen a kid with a red scarf is in the Communist Young Pioneers, whether it's in Cuba, China, or any other Socialist country. Yes, I think that would suit (no pun intended) Obama perfectly!

Eric Johnson

On the one hand, I certainly don't think that any of the Obama lines have anything to do with the child. On the other hand, I don't see how anyone who's read anything the guy has written, or paid any serious attention to his political ideas can buy into the empty suit meme. I get that it's a good line, & the picture makes it hard to resist, but whether you agree or disagree with his ideas, he's not an empty suit. IMH(but fairly well informed)O. Oh, and he's hardly a socialist. on the whole, he's well to the right of a number of democrats, none of whom are far enough left to be called socialists. Really, there aren't any socialists on the large stage of American political life anymore, haven't been since...maybe forever unless you count the 1900 election where Eugene Debs got a significant number of votes.

I'm too sleepy to come up with a caption, but maybe the little kid will walk away humming an old Beatles song: "I'm looking through you..."

bill912

"Who are you calling 'thin-skinned'?"

Warren

Mr. Nicene waxes poetic - "Myself, I prefer 'visible and invisible'."

I see right through this thread.
