Caption Contest: Bart Chilton Salutes You

Tyler Durden's picture

When someone asks you who is the biggest sellout is in the history of the CFTC, the person who allegedly "crusaded" against gold and silver manipulation, only to blame his and his agency's gross incompetence and conflicts of interest on lack of funding, and who tirelessly preached about the dangers of HFT to anyone who cared, only to become an HFT lobbyist and advisor, one right answer isn't the long-haired terrorist dude but his real-life doppelganger, Bart Chilton.

Then again, Mr. Chilton doesn't care what you think of him, as he laughs all the way to the bank.

In fact, here he is at the World Federation of Exchanges 54th Annual Meeting (where he is defending HFT) telling his critics precisely what he thinks of them.

either way, the result is the same and we're all experiencing it....

Works for .gov.  Collects taxpayer paycheck.  Retires on taxpayer pension.  People like that are totally helping turnaround our broke country.

Hey, that's Devin Townsend! Go devy, and skullets.

Awesome song of his to go with our honoring of skullets:

Devin Townsend - Supercrush

< His IQ.

< The length of his dick.   In centimeters.


What the two means.

In Europe it is widely understood that the backside of two fingers held up means what the backside of the middle finger held up in the USA means.


That is Flipping the Bird, European style.


The caption needs to read, "FUCK YOU ARSEHOLES." because that is how he is responding to his critics.

Yeah but he writes all those car repair manuals!

Chilton:  "Eat Me!"

Not enough spices or salt and pepper in the world for that Bart.

V is for Victorious. Unfortunately in this case it means I am a Vagina.

He would make a great Bond villian and it would be a great scene watching him die in a Bond film.

I would salute him back with just one finger. 

knukles's picture

That was the old Brit equivalent of the US single finger when I lived there in the 60's. 
Dunno if it's been McDaonaldized away as well....

It's a several hundred year old "fuck you" to your enemy.

The French used to cut those two fingers off of English longbowmen when they were captured in a battle, so they'd show their fingers to the enemy before shooting them.

Variation on "The Shocker"???




Amish Hacker's picture

Nice, plausible story about the longbowmen, and the tradition is even older than that. Roman legions marched into battle with the middle finger extended (medium digitum extendere).

Looks just like English Bob from Unforgiven.

Bart Chilton, almost as big a sellout as Alan Greenspan.

Minute four of the speech, the douchebag Ashley Schaeffer wannbe exclaimed, "I'm not fine! I sell fucking Kia's! Think about that!"

The camera only caught the beginnings of the salute.  Third finger was not yet envolved.

All my… integrity… will be lost in time, like [small cough] tears… in… rain.

The Tall Man doesn't take any shit, Chilton just takes it up the ass.... Big difference ...

"In a moment, I'm going to put down one of these two fingers.  Guess which one."
