Captain Caption LXVI



"This worked for Bush last week.  
What the hell am I doing wrong here?  
Hello?  Hello?"


"Who is this?"



"Jake.  From State Farm."



"Hey, listen, I think all you have to do is speak real loud.  
These phones are pieces of crap."

  1. I think what they did is actually made a reverse phone for Bush. They knew he was likely to answer like that so they put the speaker and receiver at opposite ends for him. When he holds his phone upside down it works like a regular phone.

    1. That's actually pretty funny and makes sense. Apparently, they forgot to fix the phone when Obama took office.

  2. Remember the good ol' days of rotary phones? My kids would lose their minds if they had to talk strapped to a wall in the kitchen…the things we endured as children...

    1. I remember unscrewing the mouthpiece and removing the speaker. Then, we'd screw it back in and watch the fun when my mother or father would try and speak into it. Then...we'd get our ass beat.
      Good times, good times.

  3. Jake needs to offer some tips while he has Obama on the line.

    1. That khaki suit jacket wasn't a good call, though.

  4. What? They didn't go Geico? That may explain why things are upside down, at least according to their commercials

    1. Without question, my favorite commercials. The Progressive ones with Flo really skeeve me out, though.

    1. There just has to be. It's not like Jake is an uncommon name. I'm surprised no one has stepped forward.

  6. I love that you threw Jake from State Farm into the mix. Too funny. Now we just have to hit Putin with all of the fake IRS calls that have been occurring lately.

  10. We had one telephone. It was on the wall next to the kitchen (this was after we moved to the big city). My mom used to take the phone away from me and hang it up. Good times. Yeah.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. We had a party line. Which is probably all they had in the Soviet Union.
      BA DUM BUM

    1. It was confusion like that which lead to cordless phones.

  12. I picture a tiny little skier skiing down Putin's (puddin') forehead. I am not sure the insurance guy wants to insure these men on the other end of the line

  13. Putin may be a bully who has everyone who dares to disagree with him whacked, but at least he knows how to hold a telephone.

  14. Now you've got me thinking what the correct distance between the president's knees should be when he's sitting on a swivel chair. The Obama harbour is wide enough for his hand to sail in without a tugboat.
