Perhaps only fools rush in, but we couldn't help falling in love with one of the earlier submissions to this week's contest.
The winning caption:
"You know Clarence, if this guy starts every decision with 'Wise men say,' I'm gonna puke!"
-- submitted by Steve LaDue of Fort Mill, S.C.
With his takeoff on an Elvis ballad, Mr. LaDue demonstrates again his hunka-hunka burining talent for caption writing. Last week, he penned one of our runner-up choices. This week he is "Double Trouble", as he wins the grand prize, the original cartoon art with his caption on it, as well as runner-up mention.
"We don't do Casual Fridays."
-- submitted by Jim Henson of Lexington, S.C.
"I haven't read his opinions but I've heard he has a Suspicious Mind."
-- submitted by Brent Sheppard of Morganton.
"So THIS is Senator Kennedy's idea of a swing vote?"
-- submitted by Joe Hamilton of Waxhaw.
"Somebody tell Bush that extensive food court experience just isn't the same."
-- also submitted by Steve LaDue.
Thanks for all your entries. Here's a sampling of some of the other better lines we received:
"When the Democrats said appointing Alito would turn the president into a king, I didn't realize they meant THE King!"
"Perhaps you were expecting Diana Ross?"
"I told you his disappearance in 1977 wasn't settled law."
"And you think the Senate got all shook up over Alito!"
"What happens in Washington, stays in Washington."
"Sandra Day O'Connor has left the building."
"He's the only one the Democrats would approve."
"Wait 'til you see his law clerks."
"Apparently, someone feels we’ve been a little TOO conservative."
