President Obama said of his plans to fight against ISIS, “this is not the equivalent of the Iraq War”.

Mostly notably because it lacks a Commander-in-Chief who wants to win it.

On Meet the Press, President Obama said “we’ve not seen any immediate intelligence about threats to the homeland” from ISIS.

Here’s a scary thought: what if it’s there, but it’s stored on Lois Lerner’s hard drive?

If there are parts of the Koran that say “Don’t murder people,” maybe in future editions they should bold those.

Can you imagine anything scarier than both major political parties being in complete agreement on everything?

SURGEON GENERAL WARNING: If you didn’t know cigarettes were bad for you until you read this, there is no hope for you.

What we need is a good guide on how to tell murdery Muslims from friendly ones.

A new report shows that NYC’s Mayor de Blasio has kicked 1,412 homeless people out of the city since taking office in January.

That’s terrible! What’s to keep them from oversalting their food now?

During his speech about ISIS, President Obama announced that America would send “no ground troops” to Iraq.

I hope that means his plan is to bomb it until there’s no ground left, and then send in troops.

Color and Contrast

All you’ve got to do is click the square that’s a different color.

Very simple.

But you get more and more boxes, and “different” becomes “barely different”.

I ran out of time on level 24.

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


Hatless in Hattiesburg, for showing compassion to people with drinking problems.


PRODUCTION NOTES:
#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 lolterizt@gmail.com 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.

During an interview on NBC, President Obama said that going golfing after a speech about ISIS beheading a journalist was bad “optics”.

Even worse optics: calling it “optics”.

A mysterious explosion that rocked Nicaragua’s capital appears to have been caused by a small meteorite.

Which, President Obama was quick to assure everyone, was “not Islamic“.
