JoAnn's Caption Contest #12
  • "Jesus.  What the hell was in that Caribou coffee?" - Jeff B.
  • "Who is that dog he's in bed with???" - Patty B.
  • "JoAnn! JoAnn! Look, I found a quarter!" - Patty B.
  • "This duck driver is making me wait way too long." - Richard M.
  • Posted January 10th, 2001 #12 "I wonder if I look as sexy as I feel?" - Leith P.

    This was a tough decision for JoAnn. Family duties made her want to pick her mom's caption, but in the end she went with the Lethal Weapon. The reference to the duck driver was disqualified due to lack of originality.
