LDV Caption Competition: The Obama & Cameron ‘Special Relationship’ Edition

There’s no prize at stake – just the opportunity to prove you’re wittier than any other LDV reader…

Here’s the popular leader of a leading nation whose economy is on the road to recovery on a Boy’s Night Out with David Cameron. What do you think might be being said or thought by or about them?

And the winner of our last caption comp is…

Some fantastic entries for our most recent caption competition, David Cameron & Alex Salmond “Who’ll take the Highland?” Edition.

The winner, according to The Voice’s judging panel of one, was this one by Rob Strickland:

Salmond: We’ll take the Kingdom for a horse.
Cameron: Oh no, not the horse, I gave that back to Ms Brooks.

    Obama: “I’m amazed you can eat that junk. For all you know, that hot dog could be somebody’s penis.”
    Cameron: “I thought it tasted familiar…”

  • Graham Martin-Royle 18th Mar '12 - 6:16pm

    DC thinks: All that arse licking, I’ve got to get the taste out of my mouth.

  • D.C. ” Wow, Barak, this dog’s too hot. How long to go before there’s a break?”
    B.O. (mutters): “Just don’t bite off more than you can chew, David. This is basketball not Crufts.”

  • Toby MacDonnell 18th Mar '12 - 8:32pm

    Cameron was put out when his flirtatious oral gestures were ignored by his haughty, alouf crush. But that was why he loved him.

  • Billy Wright 18th Mar '12 - 8:46pm

    Like LDP in my mouth; whoops I meant putty!

  • Keith Browning 19th Mar '12 - 8:44am

    Obama thinking – ‘whoever wrote in the US President’s Book of Social Etiquette.. page one..line one… never get photographed eating in public… got it just about right !!!’

  • OBAMA: (thinks) I guess I should wait till he’s swallowed before I tell him about that strike on Tehran…
    CAMERON: Now, what was it that Nick told me to remember again, Democrat = good, Republican = bad?!

  • Obama decided staring into the middle distance was the easiest way to avoid Dave’s recreation of the “How many hotdogs can I shove into my mouth in one go?” Bullingdon japery.

  • Dave: “Barack, thanks for buying me this, its given me a great idea – I can go home and pitch the coalition as being like Tory meat made more acceptable by a large dollop of yellow Lib Dem mustard!”

  • Nick (not Clegg) 19th Mar '12 - 4:09pm

    With Cameron, we’re all stuffed

  • Nick (not Clegg) 19th Mar '12 - 5:32pm

    Cameron: “Three more of these and I’ll be in a position to compare and contrast the US and British health care systems”

  • David Allen 19th Mar '12 - 5:53pm

    One leader makes a pig of himself on junk food. The other politely averts his gaze from such an embarrassing spectacle. Which is the Yank and which is the Brit?

  • Richard Dean 19th Mar '12 - 6:28pm

    “Privatize everything!” exclaimed the Leader of the “Free” world, “The roads, the post office, the police, the army …”.
    “I will!” exclaimed David, thinking quickly “Dieticians, dentists, nurses, cardiologists, …”
