"It's a bird! It's a plane! It's ... 27 other teams. Oh, man. That's kind of a bummer. Like, we've been pretty good for a while, and it's still that bad. Dang."
It's OK, Washington Wizards. You're still sneakily fun and OK in our books (especially when you have Bradley Beal, so let's get him healthy ASAP). Best caption wins the max contracts we all richly, richly deserve. Good luck.
In our last adventure: Stephen Jackson can't believe how good referee Josh Tiven is at freestyling. This $50,000 battle will NOT be as easy to win as he thought.
Winner, Chris: Invisible tongue depressor.
NOTE: Simple, clean, sharp lines and a strong follow-through. They don't all have to be complicated references; sometimes it's nice to return to the origins of Internet joking.
Runner-up, Larry B.: Stephen Jackson: "Then why did I have the bowl, Bart? Why did I have the bowl?"
Second runner-up, XLR8R: Referee: "Jackson, that's number six — you are out of here."
Jackson: "I think its better for both of us if you drop that last foul call before I catch a case of Renaldo Balkman."
