Oops, I did it again

I OWN third place in the New Yorker Anti-Caption Contest

If number 2 tries harder, what does number 3 do?

I'm number 3, I'm a kind of excrement that doesn't exist? (Or is number 3 vomit?)

No on 8

Not that anyone reading this would dare vote yes, but just in case... please vote no on 8, or consider yourself a hateful jerk. And don't come back here again. ever.

Today's portmanteau is brought to you by Overcompensating.

Shame + Pride = Shmide. Apparently it tastes like bile and looks like John McCain.

It's the chaw-filled lollipop with the smokable stick!

America's favorite!

I was sad because I went to Italy and didn't smoke a single Capri Superslim, which are very Euro.

A connection was made.

Imagine if you will a Blowpop that has a Capri Superslim for stick.
