Caption Contest! Cutout Christie & columnist Charles Stile

Brent Johnson gets Cutout Christie’s gaze

Nobody who covers the Trenton Statehouse does deadpan better than Charlie Stile at The Record. So here he is, above, backstage waiting to go on at the NJ Legislative Correspondents Club Show last night at the Hamilton Manor, an event part fun and part fundraiser for the club’s scholarship fund. Brent Johnson sang “Proud Murphy” (to “Proud Mary”) and “The Job is Mine” (to “I Walk the Line” and in his best Johnny Cash twang). Brent Johnson from Ledger did “Everybody Must Get Stoned” and “Little Lounger Boy” to Christie’s cutout and to the tune “Surfer Girl”. And Phil Murphy was scheduled to make his debut as fresh new governor, managing the expectation game like a political champ and not overselling his performance.

Got a caption for the big photo above? Post it in the Comments.  I’ll start!

    Caption: “What goes around comes around. Former Trump hostage Christie now holding Stile hostage on secluded beach.”

    (FYI: my favorite thing about this pic is the man with the hat in the corner of the mirror)

    Micheal Cohen got millions for his relationship with Trump and all I got was this cut out of Christie.

    “If this is the 2018 ad for the New Jersey Division of Travel and Tourism, I say get Bill Cosby back.”

    Well-done, Blue Jerseyans.

    “So Charlie, is this when you ask if I will smoke weed once it’s legal?”

    Caption: “Please don’t make me beg.”

    BTW, I think it was Charlie who twanged “The Job is Mine.”
