How can this win... there are SIX gorilla warriors in the frame, NOT 4. Please correct.. thnx. Otherwise, great job...
You're right, Margo - there are definitely six gorilla "warriors" in that photo. But since it says "accuracy is no object" in the ground rules for the caption challenge, we think it's OK (and still pretty darn funny) the way it is.
The caption says four are warriors. The other two must be warriorettes. Any fool can see that.
This is funny???

wow.... Must be a mighty slow day around CNN.
Too long for a caption, not funny, inaccurate, uninspired, lacking in creativity, and remarkeably sterile.

Also, banal to the end and flat as an ironing board. How in the frozen-over and lackluster wannabe comedian-filled underworld did this win?
there's more gorillas there than four.
Yes, there are six, but only four are being sent to Iraq. The other two are going to Afghanistan.
His caption's not that funny, in my opinion. "American gorilla warriors"? I hope I'm not the only American who knows that gorillas aren't native to the western hemisphere. My guess is it's supposed to be a play on "guerilla" that would have been better stated as "a brigade of gorilla warriors" - thus pleasing Margo and educated Americans simultaneously. Also, how can a "bipartisan plan" be proposed by a democrat? Bipartisan means "on behalf of both parties". While accuracy is "no object" to this column, it still helps make things funnier. Maybe you could suggest that people at least try to make sense.
There are only FOUR gorilla warriors in the frame ... the other two are merely gorilla advisors ...
Zeke in Portland, let it go. No sense in trying to get cerebral. Mr. Mercer did have the best of the three that were up for vote.
Regardless of their number, genus and species or origin of said genus and species, I think we all just need to pull together and support our troops.
Congratulations to all of you can count to six (that leaves me out)! And to the person who used a thesaurus to look up "banal." And to the same person who was unable to use a dictionary to spell "remarkably" correctly, yet was brassy enough to post anyway. This wasn't meant to make everyone in the world laugh. The CNN editor, more savy than all of us together, liked it (see above), and that's good enough for me. Try "Jackass II"--you'll understand that one. Mark Mercer
