    Police with machine guns. Pictures like these will either silence the anti-militarization of police crowd, or send them into a fuming liberal fit of rage.

    1. avatar Hoplopfheil says:

      Not always, I won once!

      1. This has been suggested before (not by me) but it would be nice if the winning caption would be posted along side the new contest. If it is worthy of a prize, it is worthy of sharing.

    “Alright. Just let us put on these gas masks. … OK, now put your hands up.”

  33. avatar Hannibal says:
