Nuke the Punchline - A Really Catchy Slogan

Harvey over at IMAO has a new straight line of the day up, so it is time to choose the winners of the last one:

President Obama will support Hillary in 2016 because…

#5 Dohtimes : …she doesn’t just look, sound and smell like an old witch

#4 a guy named Rob:…he doesn’t have enough time to completely destroy America, and she is the best choice to finish the job

#3 can of spam : … even HE doesn’t want Michelle to run.

#2 Dohtimes: …it seems that global warming or something has caused hell to freeze over.

And my favorite straight line of the day was from Bob B :

President Obama will support Hillary in 2016 because……because “Hope, Change – What Difference Does It Make” sounds like a winner.

Cookies to Bob B!
Obscure Movie Honorable Mention Cookies to walruskkkch for The Apartment reference. I love Jack Lemmon :)

I don't know what you're doing today, but here at Nuking Politics we're CELEBRATING Frank J.'s Birthday. If you haven't yet, you should send him a Princess Bride Birthday wish here, or a Nuke the Moon wish here or BOTH :)  Oh, and punch some hippies for Frank today!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY COOKIES TO FRANK J. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There were a lot of great responses to my Nuke the Punchline this time! I love Dunkin Donuts. SOOO much. Some of my favorite ones were the coconut ones, the toasted coconut ones, anything chocolate....Wait. Got a little sidetracked there... :)

My favorite punchlines were:

Now that Dunkin Donuts is offering a doughnut and egg breakfast sandwich, Michael Bloomberg...

#5 Harvey: ..will meet his untimely demise after not dodging quickly enough to avoid being trampled to death by noted breakfast enthusiast Michael Moore.

#4 Bob B.: ...will ban all city employees, including cops, from frequenting DD, effectively driving them out of business.               [I would cry!!]

#3 jw: ...will no longer allow eggs to be sold in those high capacity "dozen egg carton/ magazine/ clip thingies"

#2 can of spam: ... will abort his attempts to ban them after being faced with a coup by the NYPD.

My favorite line was from Bob in Feenicks:

Now that Dunkin Donuts is offering a doughnut and egg breakfast sandwich, Michael Bloomberg ...is proposing a fine on cardiac arrests: The Heart At-tax!

Cookies to Bob in Feenicks! :)
For some reason I really want a doughnut now. Like BAD. :) I think someone should get some for Frank's birthday and share. Don't you agree?

Here's a new line for you to try:


  1. ...wondered if it was part of Barack's Intercontinental Railroad


  2. ...wondered how many were needed to kill a deer.

  3. wondered if too many people would make it tip over and sink

  4. ...thought that two of them would be enough to discourage any wrongdoers.

  5. ...said they'd be safer if they were made of chocolate.

    ...said they should call them "wizard trains." (That's a basketball reference, Anonymiss. And it's funny. VERY funny. Just so you know. ;))

  6. Rodney Dill, when you have a sec...I have a question about your caption contest. :)

    1. Yes? You can ask it here or if you wish leave a comment on the contest with a valid email address (in the email line that won't get posted publicly).

    2. For some reason, I have a terrible time finding the current caption contest. I always find old versions....i only find the new ones by accident. What's the best way?

  7. ...he rode a Radio Flyer wagon down a big hill... with a stuffed tiger...

  8. ...he immediately called on Congress to commission battleships that ride the rail, to counter the Chinese 'floating' train threat.

  10. It usually stays on the front page at OTB. I start new contest on Monday (winners announced after the following Friday PM) and on Thursdays (winners announced after the following Tuesday PM). The contest is usually closer to the top on these days.

    Also you can click on the 'entertainment' link on the front page to get to a shorter scrollable list of posts.


  11. ...confessed he often left floaters when drinking straight from the milk jug with his cookies.

  12. ... suggested they use a "shotgun" train instead of those nasty "bullet" ones.

  13. ...wondered how long it takes to get to the sixth floor.
