Kooky Captions Are In: Thank You Caption Writers

Kooky Captions: Thank You Caption Writers

Scoop readers have issued a rich-dish of Kooky Captions to accompany our Chief Kook Image of the week – thank you to all concerned….

Officially the White House caption read:: President George W. Bush listens to Betsy Rogers, 2003 National Teacher of the Year, in a ceremony in the East Garden Wednesday, April 30, 2003. Rogers is a 1st and 2nd grade teacher at Leeds Elementary School in Leeds, Ala.

BUT… the Scoop editors feel Wayne Barlow has out-done Ari Fleischer. Applause to Wayne!

Teacher says: “You will all stay in after the meeting until someone owns up, and apologises to little Georgie Jr for calling him a moron.” - Wayne Barlow

Other Kooky Captions received included:


“ you know any GOAT stories ??.”

John Cameron


“Let this be an example to all of America’s children...If you skip class you not only miss out on an education, but on valuable years when you will develop a social conscience. I would like to personally thank the president for the courage he has shown in returning to elementary school at this time.”

Hamish Low


“ I can tell she a true supporter. From here I can see sunlight shining through her ears.”

Angus Stutter


“ Once again children, you spell President like this: P-U-P-P-E-T.”



“Who gave you that ghastly hairdo????”

Tomaso Bertinelli


“ Mr Bush wonders if Betsy Rogers, teacher of the year, has been screened for lice.”



“…and then his first big break came! Little Georgie was made official Hazing Brander for his fraternity. The rest is history...”



“Well, I'm proud to be America's Teacher of the Year. I aim to educate children to the same level as President Bush. Now that shouldn't be too hard for the majority of teachers.”

Christopher Dempsey


“My heart is broken. I cry a 1000 tears.”

Wanda Heaton


“ Mr.President...who taught you English.??”

John Cameron
