"Sarah Palin is my favorite philosopher after Jesus Christ." Please come CAPTION Michele Bachmann!!!

Last edited Tue May 30, 2017, 08:43 AM - Edit history (1)



Michele ("This is your egg on drugs" Bachmann is saying: "But even more than running for President, Sean, I'm proud of the bills I wrote from the We're Packing Bill that allows conceal carry weapons on White House Tours to the Fairness for Americans Act that would make it illegal for foreigners to call us foreign when we're visiting their country. . . . It's a shame that the Democrats had to show their disdain once again for common sense by voting them down."

3. Now I am confused.

the Fairness for Americans Act that would make it illegal for foreigners to call us foreign when we're visiting their country.

So I as a German am not allowed to call Ms. Bachman a foreigner when she is visting Germany?
What?

5. Right!

You're not confused. She is. (But the CAPTION is a joke of course.)

7. But - as usual with her...

... the real joke (and scary part) is that you have to do a quick double-take on the joke.

"Holy crap... did she really... I never heard about that... oh, man, that's just too.... oh, wait - damn, ITS A JOKE!!!!!".

9. That's also part of the joke: that the CAPTION can sound so real

(I often use the subject's speaking patterns and pet phrases even) that there is the double take. The fact that they often seem almost real (I've had many people ask if someone "really said that?" indicates how far out there the subject is in reality.

But it makes it very hard to satirize the likes of Glenn Beck. To top his craziness, the CAPTIONer has to write something so insane that the double take will not be effective.

6. "Then there was the Freedom from Psychological Bullying Bill

which would have kept people like professors and scientists and so on from pretending they know more than barbers and waitresses and so on."

8. "And I also sponsored the Freedom to Forget Act which

would have made it illegal to publish anything about Native Americans or slavery in primary and secondary school history texts. . . . I thought that was a sure-fire winner, but I suspect a couple minority caucuses teamed up to sink my bill. . . . Wouldn't you know!! . . . It's always the minorities dictating what is good for all the rest of us!!"
