The 3rd Annual Michigan Joke Contest is Here

Michigan Joke

I'll leave the caption to you

Four years ago this week, in a moment of laziness I threw up a post that read, “Ohio State vs. Michigan Jokes; Open Thread.” A mysterious contributor known only by the name “Webmaster 3,000″ quickly filled the comments with a string of about 20 Michigan jokes.

Since that time, I’ve collected more Michigan Jokes than I care to count. The joke threads on tBuckeyeblog rank at the top of the Google results and drive traffic to the blog throughout the year.

And since I’m all for a great tradition, it’s time once again for the annual Michigan Joke Contest.

Post your jokes in the comment section below. I’ll accept entries up until the point that I actually decide to judge them which could be Monday or Tuesday after the game.

Any prizes I can round up will be awarded on purely a subjective basis. That said, originality counts and that’s getting tough considering the growing number of jokes. You might want to review the links above before posting.

Michigan Joke Contest

Best joke gets one of these

UPDATE: We Have Prizes
Prizes are here. Winner gets one of these sweet messenger bags from our friends at Gametimegeeks.com. Be sure to check them out.

Nuff said. Post em below
(And yes, captions to the photo above do count)

Update: We Have a Winner
Tough decision here folks. I’ve got to admit, I like the WWII “Shoot me first” joke but I’m seeing it all over the internet. I also like Tony’s captions (…and you’re the fastest? ….IQ get’s to 16, sell!) but it looks like Nike’s got a lock on the Oregon branding meaning Gametimegeeks.com doesn’t stock Oregon products.

Michigan Joke Winner

Yep...that's him

But I left the judging to a top secret judging panel who’ve been sequestered for the past three days toiling away at their decision. And while I may not always agree with them, they are professionals. This year’s panel has decided to reward originality with the People’s Buckeye’s lines: “Did he say cheese or freeze” and also just the straight out stats on the Michigan defense. And if you haven’t seen the way Joey dresses for an Ohio State/Michigan game, something tells me he’ll appreciate it more than anyone. A game day photo probably would have been enough to win the contest in and of itself.

The Ohio State fan was then asked if he had any last requests. “Yes, shoot me first!”

    A scrawny man at a bar in Ann Arbor says to the guy sitting next to him, “Hey, you want to hear a really funny Michigan joke?” The guy replies, “Hey buddy. See the bartender? He played at Michigan. See those two huge guys to your left? They played at Michigan. See that group of big guys over at that table? All Michigan football players. Look at me. I’m 6’4, 235 and played at Michigan. Now are you sure you want to tell me your joke?”

    Two Northwest Ohio Boys were out taking a walk when all of the sudden a rottweiler breaks through the fence and starts attacking one of the boys. The second boy scared for his friends life runs over and picks up some of the broken fence and without thinking stabs the dog right in the neck forcing him to let go.

    A Toledo sports reporter sees the whole thing and runs up and says “Son that was amazing! I’m gonna put you on the cover of the Blade! Brave Buckeye Fan Beats down attacker to save Buddy!”

    “Um Sir?” says the boy ” I’m not a Buckeye fan”

    “Sir, I don’t like the Rockets either…”

    “Hmm A Falcon Fan, Not many of those, No big deal, Fearless Falcon Fan Fights Ferocious Dog to Free Freind”
