Caption's Wanted: AWOL George Returns To Service

The Mother Of All Photo Opportunities


Scoop Caption Competition

U.S. President George Bush will tonight mark what is being billed as the end of the War in Iraq with a speech delivered aboard an aircraft carrier.

Given Our Commander in Theif's own illustrious history as a member of the U.S. Armed Forces – namely a year AWOL from the National Guard ( http://www.awolbush.com) which has never been explained – this photo op. seems like an ideal occasion for another Scoop Caption Competition (Click Here To See The Face Of The Union Caption Competition).

We have added a couple of our own captions to these two White House publicity pictures to serve as inspiration for readers. Entries to the competition should be sent to editor@scoop.co.nz

"Sure, I was a pilot too. But then I shot through to Alabama for 12 months on the lam, it was a cinch. You should try it sometime. Sure beats landing on one of these day-in day-out."

"Please Lord, forgive me for deserting my country."
