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

Josh, for remembering anything Frank once wrote.

#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.

IMAGE SOURCES: Lots of great Obama pics to be found at the White House Flickr page.

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.

Promoted Comment: Mafia & IRS

Love this comment from zzyzx [High Praise!]

It looks like the Mafia and IRS have much in common. They both steal from the people, their leaders live lavish lifestyles, and when caught doing things they shouldn’t… they plead the fifth.

The Only Thing More Annoying Than Telemarketers

A new poll shows 62% of voters say the government secretly collecting the phone records of millions of Americans is an “unacceptable and alarming invasion of privacy rights”.

The other 38% pleaded the 5th and hung up.

Well, Maybe More Like Col. Klink’s Secretary

Hillary Clinton said of a memo describing corruption during her time at the State Department that “we learned of it from the media.”

Apparently, while Secretary of State, she was paying about as much attention as a Stalag 13 prison guard.
