Shut Up, Dude

On Tuesday night, Jack White took in a Cubs-Padres game as part of a three-ballparks-in-three-nights promo and probably had a fine time. But he also made the mistake of showing a range of human emotions in the Friendly Confines. A TV camera caught the rocker’s grumpy mug and it instantly went viral. So we had a caption contest. Thanks to the hundreds of you who submitted image macros and thanks to the dozens of you who followed the rules for getting an image to display in the comments. As promised, the highest-voted submission is below, follow by the usual best/worst comments of the week roundup. (Also, White will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Tigers game on Tuesday.)

In a better world, “don’t drop bombs on children” should be the least controversial thing you can say. Eddie Vedder should feel no need to qualify his remarks

Random Fact: They actually had a much longer name originally, hence the ellipsis. They shortened it by request from their record label. Their full, original name, was “Kid Rock Subpoenaed To Produce Glass Dildo As Evidence In Insane Clown Posse Lawsuit And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead”.

People who live with glass dildos shouldn’t throw Kid Rocks.

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR-IN-CHIEF’S CHOICE

 
Comments (18)
  1. Seems like we broke the up vote/down vote code this week. Dildo jokes = good. Halfassed memes = bad.

  2. Hooray!

    Gotta thank Mystery Science Theater 3000 The Movie for the win. Crow saying, “Hey! You can see the Cubs losing!” instantly jumped in my head when I saw Jack’s picture.

    Funny to see the Week’s Worst Comments meta meme land in Editor’s Choice. So close.

  3. it’s funny because they’re bad at basebell

  4. can we have a caption contest every week? If you’re concerned about it ruining the fun of the shut up dude articles then you could just not count them in the best/worst comments. Also you could just choose a best if shifty voting intentions is a concern.


  5. OWWWOOOOOOOOO!
