A week ago, I provided captions for some of the best photos from the first week of the Olympics. Today, I give you captions from the second week of the Beijing Games.

So, you see, I stayed productive throughout the entire Olympics -- unlike some people we know (coughMichaelPhelpscough).

"I said no techno!" "Wait, that's techno? Oh snap! Oowah! Oowah! Oowah! Oowah!"

"Oh, no. I'm getting cauliflower forehead."

"We caught her! Now let's taunt her with a celebratory dance!"

"You ignored a lot of blatant dives today. Great job."

"Thanks, Briana. You still suck, though."


"Maybe we would have won if we had worn our spikes."

"This photo is going to come back to haunt me if I ever decide to run for president."

"Right here! Right here! I'm open! Pass me the ball!"

"OK. Now, before they leave the court, who can think of some Croatian stereotypes?"

"Let your blessings shine down upon us, dear Barbaro."

"Little help? Anyone? I threw my back out."

"Let's sprint to the finish!"

"No way. I just asked Kobe how mine tastes, too."

"Topspin! Noooooo! That is my least favorite of all the spins!"

"When I said I could dunk I was kind of hoping they would put me on the team."

"I just hope this loss hasn't devastated our homeland."

"Wear another man's sweat-drenched shirt? Why, yes! I'd love to!"

"I might look impenetrable on the outside. But I don't think most people realize that on the inside, there's a complex, emotional person with real hopes and dreams."

"Mine reeks of scalp." "Mine, too."

"Just wave. The crowd thinks you're Freddy Adu."

"I think those orange slices were bad."

"Yeah, that's doin' it Milwaukee style!"

"What are you doing?! Do I have to do everything in this operation?!"

"Now, let's welcome my longtime singing partner Hall to the stage!"
