We can't tell a lie -- we were worried that this week's surreal President's Day challenge might stymie our readers. But they proved you can't stump all the cartoon caption writers even part of the time!
"This executive order allows me to eavesdrop from anywhere!"
-- submitted by Marshall Kiser of Charlotte.
We doff our hat to Mr. Kiser, and award him our grand prize, the original Kevin Siers editorial cartoon artwork with his caption on it.
"Forefathers? How come I only count two?"
-- submitted by Bobby Burchell of Charlotte.
"Explain to me again just how this honesty thing is supposed to work."
-- submitted by Mike Strother of Rockwell, N.C.
"Tall, skinny, bearded - yep, I done caught bin Laden."
-- submitted by Ritchie Duffy of Concord.
"Actually, I'm not a rabbit...I'm a lame duck!"
-- submitted by Alison B. Napier of Charlotte.
Thank you for all your entries. Here's a selection of some of the other better lines we received this week:
"Hey fellas, I just sold Mount Rushmore to the United Arab Emirates."
"Afghanistan, Iraq - for my "Hat Trick" I'll be visiting Iran soon."
"We’ve got a lot in common. You guys are on Mount Rushmore and I’m hard-headed too."
"Do me a favor and make sure Cheney knows this proclamation I’m holding declares rabbit season to be over!"
"....and you must be Mrs. Lincoln."
"I'd rather be seen in Abraham's hat than Abramoff's pocket!"
"Well, would you be willing to sign my petition to put me on Mt. Rushmore?"
"Here's where you went wrong - if we fight 'em there, we don't have to fight 'em here."
"So let me get this straight, you actually admitted to the cherry tree thing?"
"Do either of you guys know what a 'foreign entanglement' is?"
