Roger Ebert continues to be the best.
So, does he get his EGOT now, or what?
He has to win our caption contest too for that
Oh, that’s what I meant. Other caption contests don’t count? Crap. I was totally counting my “Ask Jeeves/Zune fansite” Caption Contest win.
A pretty good tip regarding that from this very article:
“…contest winners usually generate lots of captions. Studies of creativity have shown that quantity breeds quality—what I call the productivity theory, because high productivity corresponds to high creativity.”
How do you get to the Monster’s Ball? Refresh, refresh, refresh.
I think this may make me forgive him for writing a negative review of “Brazil” when it first came out.
Finally you acknowledge me Dad!
This explains all you Cats in the Cradle plays on last.fm.
Didn’t that movie come out before you were born?
That movie came out before Son of Gabe’s parents were born. Which means it came out before Gabe was born? But that’s impossible, since we all know Gabe came of age during the Boer War.
Cartoon caption contests can never be a real art.
I’d like to submit a caption to Ebert’s review of Zoolander, which includes him blaming the 9/11 attacks on Zoolander. I think Zoolander is a terrific and fun movie, made me chuckle some, Will Ferrell is really funny in it and the whole “Mer-MAN!” bit was funny. But to blame that movie for the 9/11 attacks is stupid. Ebert is not the best. I think my caption for his review of that movie would be “Unsubscribe!”
Well, your criticism of Ebert is just as humourless as his criticism of Zoolander, but at least he had the excuse of 9/11 having just happened.
“You briefly lost your trademark wit and perception in the immediate aftermath of a national tragedy!”

“And soon, I will go back to being smart and funny, but you will always be Steve Winwood.”
- Roger Ebert
Now I feel terrible. I’M SORRY, WINWOOD. Ebert brings out an irrational need to be protective in me.
“It’s not that I think my cartoon captions are better than anyone else’s, although some weeks, understandably, I do. It’s that just once I want to see one of my damn captions in the magazine EDIT: blog that publishes the best cartoons EDIT: material in the world. Is that too much to ask?” — Cakeordeath
