This week's cartoon caption contest was drawn from the real-life protests over the Danish cartoons depicting Mohammed. Our readers' responses were drawn from their imaginations.
The winning caption:
"'Death to Everyone!' was taken."
-- submitted by Guy P. DiCenzo of Matthews.
Mr. DiCenzo has taken our grand prize, the original Kevin Siers artwork, with his caption written on it.
"Irony? What's Irony?"
-- submitted by Marshall Davis of Charlotte.
"I copied from the Patriot Act."
-- submitted by Robert Moore of Monroe.
"Particularly, 'Peace Train' by Cat Stevens!"
-- submitted by Keith Mason of Matthews.
Thank you all for your entries. Here's a selection of some of the other better lines we received this week:
"The death part I understand -- it's the other part I'm having trouble with."
"It jihads itself!"
"We have found a way to execute the principles of western style democracy!"
"The bad news is, I can only use the sign once!"
"It's part of our new truth-in-advertising initiative"
"But death has alway been our only freedom of expression."
"I hope the Ayatollah doesn't mind if we take another approach -- the suicide bomber class of '06 was pretty slim."
" Here's my homework, Professor Goss - do I graduate CIA training school now?"
"Except for rioting and embassy burning."
"If it all works out, at least I won't have to write another caption again."
