Did you know that the loneliest creature on Earth is probably a whale who has been swimming the Pacific ocean for at least 12 years, and singing out in the hope of finding a mate.
Scientists report that every whale has a unique song, unlike that of any other whale – so different that while it’s been calling for companionship for over a decade.....
....it has never received a response.
Maybe there's a prostitute whale it can hook up with.
Maybe there's a promiscuous dolphin in the area.
Maybe it could pleasure itself. if it's fins were long enough.

Even though my beloved Packers pulled off a tough upset win yesterday at Philly, I still had to come back to work today, and I need a laugh. So please post links to your favorite youtube videos below. I'll get us started...

With Joe being in Texas veiwing gay films such as "Saving Ryan's Privates" and "Freeing Chad's Willy", it is my duty to keep the Caption Challenge going so you guys don't lose focus. I'll make sure Joe includes these points on his blog. Here goes!!
How to play:
It's simple, really. Look at the sports-related pictures above, and give us your funniest caption for any or all of them. You can write as many captions for each as you would like.
The challenge runs daily, Monday-Thursday. Each day's competition will usually be posted by noon ET, and will usually end around 11 p.m. ET. On Monday and Wednesday, Community member ktopp24 will be the judge. On Tuesday and Thursday, I'll run the show. If one of the judges decide that your caption is the funniest or most clever submitted for that picture, it will be declared a winner.
Winning captions will be announced when that day's challenge ends. There will be one winner for each picture, and also one winner for the person who can string together the 5 best captions all with the same theme.
You will be awarded one point for each winning caption that you post. You will see a running tally on the scoreboard, which will be posted at the beginning and end of each day. At the end of each month a champion is declared, and we shower that user in praise and adulation! We add his screenname to the Wall-O-Fame, and then we start everyone's score back at zero.

OK, let me start out by saying that, yes, I am a homer. And I always will be. Being from Wisconsin, if you are not a Packers fan, you might as well be wearing a skunk on your head because nobody wants to talk to you. So even when the Packers record was 4-12 three years ago, if you asked me I would tell you that we were good enough to be in the Super Bowl. That's just what a homer does. But at the same time, I also know that nobody will ever go to the Super Bowl with a 4-12 record. I'm not stupid, just a homer.
Now this year, is different. The Packers are rated high on experts charts all over the country. Offensively and defensively, we are up near the top of everybody's lists. So this year I can say with confidence that we are good enough to go the distance. But of course, there are other teams out there that are also good enough and of course one of those "other teams" must be an AFC team. So, here is my list of 11 teams that I feel have a great shot at going to Dallas on that 1st Sunday in February....in no particular order either:
Indianapolis Colts - The Colts were 14-0 before they shut it down last season - and improved their offensive running game. But despite reaching the Super Bowl, Manning added fuel to his reputation as a playoff underacheiver in the loss to the Saints. I expect him to bounce back nicely though.
Baltimore Ravens - Joe Flacco isn't an elite QB yet, but the addition of wide receivers Anquan Boldin, Donte Stallworth, and TJ Houshmanzadeh could speed up the process. The defense's only weakness is the lack of a shutdown corner, though it could be a costly one.
Minnesota Vikings - Unless QB Brett Favre is over the hill, which is unlikely, the Vikings are the most talented team in the NFC. Still, the losses of receivers Sidney Rice until at least mid-season and third-down back Chester tayler to free agency could slow the offense.
Dallas Cowboys - The Cowboys have the talent to reach the Super Bowl, but they couldn't protect QB Tony Romo last year and didn't do much to help the line. In addition, coach Wade Phillips has yet to show he can win in the playoffs.
Atlanta Falcons - If QB Matt Ryan continues his climb toward elite status in his 3rd season and free ageny cornerback Dunta Robinson solidifies a leaky secondary, the Falcons, badly banged up last season, could be the NFL's surprise team.
San Diego Chargers - The Chargers are the NFL's most talented team, but they've been playoff failures under coach Norv Turner. Those nasty contract disputes with Vincent Jackson, Marcus McNeill, and Shawne Merriman can't help but be a negative influence.
New Orleans Saints - The Super Bowl jinx - 10 of the past 11 winners failed to reach the conference championship game the following season - won't be a factor. Repeating with a defense that used smoke and mirrors will be.
Green Bay Packers - It's easy to say that QB Aaron Rodgers has done everything but win the playoffs, but he put up 45 points against Arizona last January....and lost. Blame the NFL's #2 defense, which crumbled against elite QB's in 2009 and returns mostly the same personnel.
New York Jets - Believe it or not, the Jets' bandwagon is bigger than the Packers'. But not even coach Rex Ryan's swagger and the NFL's best defense will be enough if second-year QB Mark Sanchez doesn't reduce the costly interceptions.
Pittsburgh Steelers - The Steelers are still the Steelers, or at least they will be with Roethlisberger returns from a 4-game suspention. By then, they will be playing catch-up in the division race.
New England Patriots - QB Tom Brady must have a career year because the Patriots are without defensive line stalwarts Richard Seymour and Ty Warren and the receivers are shaky with Wes Welker coming off knee surgery and Randy Moss griping about his contract.

Well, Joe is claiming that he has "Meetings" today and can't get the contest going. Yeah sure he does. I think that's office code for "I have the hershey squirts and I'm to embarrassed to admit it.". Yeah, I think that's it. Well, he says that if I do a Lazy Joe today he'll count these points in his blog. So go for it!!
