Jerry, Greg & Papaw Bridge Caption Contest Time

August 30th, 2012 by admin · 19 Comments

Earlier this morning, Greg Fischer put this photograph on his Fakebook and it NEEDS a caption:


Jerry Abramson, Greg Fischer, Steve Beshear, Mitch Daniels.

We know there’s some humor in there somewhere.

    You’re telling me that the groundbreaking is on the side?

    Jerry left his coat on, maybe this is his little last protest of the I-265 bridge.

    The Goldman Sachs guys were supposed to be here with the shovels, right?

    Q: Greg, Papaw and Danieyells are talking to each other, but who in the hell is the Cabbage Head talking to?
    A: Himself, he’s done gone daffy.

    “A Good-Bye Scene”

    Mitch: “Fortunately, this will be my last freakin’ meeting with you guys. I’m headed to the Purdue presidency.”

    Jerry: “You gotta be kiddin’, Mitch. Little ole you?

    Greg: “Too good for us now, Mitch?”

    Steve: “We know how lame college honchos can be. We see it all the time at UofL. Maybe go over there for lessons on fightin’ embezzlement?”

    Steve: You know what I think I’m gonna’ do?

    Mitch: What?

    Steve: I’m gonna’ go home, have me a little nap, and then go over to Thelma Lou’s and watch a little TV.

    Mitch: Mmm-hmm.

    Steve: Yeah, I believe that’s what I’ll do. Go home… have a nap… and then over to Thelma Lou’s for TV.

    Greg: Mmm. that’s a good idea

    Steve: Yep, that’s the plan. Home… little nap… then…

    Jerry: [interrupting] For the love of Mike *do* it!
    [shouts] Do it! Just *do* it! Go take a nap, go to Thelma Lou’s for TV, just *do it*!

    Steve is telling the others, “I know this bridge has been a long time comin so if you don’t mind I want to start the ceremony with one of my favorite sayins. Fly away buzzard, fly away crow, way down south where the winds don’t blow. Rub your nose and give two winks and save us from this awful jinx.

    Jerry: GREG, get away from Daddy Steve, he is mine!

    I see TARC dropped them off over in Indiana. Too bad they don’t stay there.

  • 13 Bill // Aug 30, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    Actually Indiana wouldn’t put up with the three lackeys that all hang all over each others words. Greg, Jerry, and Stevie couldn’t win an election in Indiana if they wanted to because people in Indiana wouldn’t fall for their bullcrap.

  • 14 Ed Springston // Aug 30, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    Beshear: “so Mitch you think the people will fall for this again?”

    Geesh, didn’t Jerry get the memo to wear a blue shirt? That guy’s always trying to outdo us!

  • 16 Debbie Linnig Michals // Aug 30, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    Steve: I am sick and tired of sending out memos to Jerry and his staff. I asked that he show up with a long sleeve blue shirt and to roll up his shirt sleeves like the common people of Ky and IN. No…he has to show up in his Brook Brothers suit, mongramed white shirt with cuff links and a pair of alligator shoes. If his head gets any bigger we are going to have to hire a photographer who specializes in wide angel shots.

    Debbie Linning Michals: YOU WIN. Mayor Happy Pants needs a size 16 hat and a size 48 pant. On the hat, he’s reminiscent of the old saw about Geo. W. Bush — All hat and no cattle.

    Jerry: “Hey, Guys! Can I take my jacket off too?”
