Meanwhile, pass ’em around, spread the love, and if you make your own, don’t be shy about dropping a link to your pics in the comments. The more, the merrier.

NOTE TO READERS: Hovering your mouse over the picture activates closed captioning for the l33t-speak/txtmsg impaired.

My favorites from the submissions using last edition’s uncaptioned picture:

From Travelwise42:

This week’s uncaptioned picture for you to play with:

Either Arik for the Son of Sam teleprompter, or Kris for Harry’s Elmer Gantry quote.

What say you?

#1: When creating lolbama! pictures, please caption with either black or white text, as colors like red and yellow tend to blur badly when I compress the images.

#2: Standard image size for these posts is 350px wide by whatever high. If you can have your images 350px wide before you caption them, I won’t end up shrinking your captions into illegibility when I re-size the images.

MAKE YOUR OWN: The free lolbuilder from I Can Has Cheezburger.

STYLE NOTE: Short captions are usually better. Your goal is 10 words or less, with humor value tending to increase exponentially as the number of words approaches 1.

Send your submissions to and – if they aren’t obscene (IMAO is a PG-13 site) and don’t suck too terribly bad – I’ll post them for you. Remember to include your name (and blog URL, if applicable) so I know who to thank.

    Yep, tossup between Elmer and Sam. Had to look up both. Thoughtful, imaginative stuff this week.

    Several rashers of bacon to Kris for the Harry Reid/Elmer Gantry quote and I’m certainly not trying to diminish that, but…
    That movie was based on a “real life” evangelist named Billy Sunday From the late 20’s: (Ex-baseball player reborn) and he originated it in a speech on alcohol and the Hollywood writers changed it (to be more palatable to the movie going masses, I suppose).
    “Listen, I’m against sin.
    I’ll kick it as long as I’ve got a foot. I’ll fight it as long as I’ve got a fist. I’ll butt it as long as I’ve got a head.
    And I’ll bite it as long as I’ve got a tooth and when I’m old, fistless, footless and toothless
    I’ll gum it till I go home to glory and it goes home to Perdition!”

    Me, I love a good Sith reference!
