Health Care Cartoon Caption Contest

Healthcare Bill Caption Contest Cartoon

Ever since Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi stated so eloquently about the Health care Bill, “…we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it…”, I have been questioning what exactly was in the bill.  Now that it is passed of course the add ons are coming out.   Included is a rider that now effectively eliminates the banks as a middle-man for student loans.  Instead the loans would be provided by the government.  Again this was in the Health Care Bill!

So what else do you think will come out that was hidden in the Health care Bill?  Are you funny?  We like funny?  Submit your thoughts in the comments section.  Next Monday I’ll post my favorites for all my readers to vote on.  The winner will get a signed copy of the final cartoon and have their banner ad posted to the right for at least 2 weeks.

If you don’t have a banner ad already on my links page, why not?  Send me a link or the banner (125×125).  Don’t worry if you have a blog/site but can’t make the banner.  If you are the winner, I’ll also make one for you.

Bonus points for people who promote this contest on your own blog, facebook or share via one of the social bookmarks below.  (just let me know in the comments).

Remember, your entry doesn’t have to be anything related to health care.  Also anyone know what is meant by a “Hidden Mickey” (the title of the toon)??

    In all fairness to my leftist comrades, the student loan thing was well known before the bill was signed. Anyway, here is my submission:

    Being that the Schwa (ə) is a cool looking letter, and
    Being that saying Schwa is very cool, and
    Being that the Schwa is not an official English letter, and
    Being that this limits the opportunity for people to use or say Schwa,
    It is hereby enacted that the Schwa shall become the 27th letter of the English language, applicable, but not limited to all territories, principalities, nationalities, free autonomous zones, and interstellar regions where English is spoken, written, or perceived,
    Furthermore, to improve the opportunity of populations to use and say the letter Schwa, and thus to benefit from its coolness, as well as to stimulate investment and international and domestic support of Schwa, the letter Schwa shall be included in all words Schwa-deficient, in addition,
    Let it be enacted that any word longer than ten letters or four syllables shall be gifted an additional Schwa for each accented syllable beyond the fourth, or two Schwas will substitute for two or more consecutive consonants in a ten letter word or greater which ends with an unaccented syllable.
    Implementation, regulation, and pronunciation of newly Schwa-ed words will be be administrated by the states.*

    strip club expenses are now a tax deduction!

  6. Carlo says:

    When the appropriate medical intervention cannot be provided to a patient for whatever reason, ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic and/or Yanni music may be played instead.

  7. Oh man – I really hope I can come up with something good (I just got’s to get a signed Bearman for my collection – that would be so awesome)! 🙂

    • Bearman says:

      Isn’t your “collection” just a bunch of papers tucked in an old shoe box??

      • Don’t forget about my lucky marble, piece of twine and shiny rock!

        Article 652 Section 1: Your Health Care Bill and You.
        The aforementioned legislation (hereafter referred to as ‘spot’) really likes it when you scratch him behind the ears and rub his belly …

        Uhh … can we enter more than once?! 🙂

    Health care Act shall:
    exclude and/or include any member of the united states of america and/or federation states and/or states of america and/or US from all and/or any and/or no health care if your vote was against and/or for this bill.

  10. Tony says:

    Pg 1068 par 9 clause 1b: To reduce the cost of health care funding by the government each & every citizen shall be required to eat one apple for either breakfast, lunch or dinner. Failure to do so shall result in a total forfeiture of any medical treatment whatsoever. This clause has been included in line with the common law principle “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”
    To increase funding to the Health Care Dept. the price of apples shall be raised to $14.95 each. This will in turn offset the incurred costs of senator’s meal & travel expenses while they are in official government meetings to determine how to reduce the cost of healthcare funding.

  11. Bo Lumpkin says:

    I will have to think on this one. I am afraid that somewhere in there it will say, “Government mandated abortion shall be allowed on people up to the age of 85 years.”

  12. Tony says:

    Ummmm…. I just realised that I don’t think I stand a chance of winning, my caption won’t fit into the speech bubble….

    If an expectant mother is not able to provide monetary coverage or does not have proper health care coverage at the time of birth of child, said child will be turned over to the Democratic Party hereto become known as Dem Child. Said Dem Child will fulfill the parents financial obligations plus 200% interest per month of term Dem Childs mother did not have coverage, by becoming a Senator and serving at the mercy of the US Government until such payments are made in full. At which time a controversy will be created to remove said Dem Child from office.

    • Bearman says:

      I don’t understand dem rules but dem is ‘tupid. Interesting, I was a Damn Child. “You know what that Damn Child of yours did today?”

  27. Only Fox can uncover the real components in the Health care bill. Great competition though.

  28. Nate Fakes says:

    I’m still trying to think of something clever. If you know me, that’s hard to do.

  29. What about just a tied tic-tac-toe game with it crossed out with the words “death panels”

  30. George says:

    “Free fishnet condoms will be made available to all who want them. For those who do not prefer the stylish look of fishnet, we also offer a cheaper recycled, reversible condom in many fashionable colors**”

    **Some assembly required

  31. Section 4565
    Sub Section 343
    We the government cannot ensure Americans will not use death panels to reduce costs. See Sarah Palin Theory.

  32. Roland says:

    … And furthermore, if this Health Care Bill collapses upon itself… It was Bush’s fault. Any other outcome other than failure is a Yay for the President. The Yay may revert back to blaming Bush if it only looked like it was working and then blew up in our faces.

  33. FJ says:

    Sect (4) Sub (2) (v)(ii) states:

    Patients not using the proper form of ‘Mother may I,’ will be sent to the back of the line.
