"It's just that I don't want you to end up like those Enron boys."
-- submitted by Rob Christensen of Charlotte.
The gulf between generations has always been the grist for great literature, and, of course, that includes cartoons, right? Right? At any rate, Mr. Christensen, in our opinion, came up with the best line for this week's variation on that classic theme. For his efforts, he'll be receiving the original Kevin Siers cartoon art with his caption written on it.
"Trust me son, there's more to life than 'The Apprentice'!"
-- submitted by Dan Owens of Charlotte.
"What's wrong with having your birthday party at the NASCAR Hall of Fame?"
-- submitted by Zachary M. Moretz of Concord.
"If you keep this up, you will never get into reform school."
-- submitted by Brent Sheppard of Morganton, N.C.
"If CMS was good enough for me, it's good enough for you!"
-- submitted separately by William F. Withrow, Jr. of Harrisburg, N.C. and Zachary M. Moretz (again!) of Concord.
Thank you for all your entries. Here's a sampling of some of the other better lines we received this week:

"Son, I can't believe you overbilled me in your allowance for those times you visited me in jail!"
"No offense, dude, but I figured the IRS was run by a bunch of Honda ridin' girly men..."
"Now, dadgone it son, wanting to be president ain't all it's cracked up to be."
"No, son, I did not mean greedy little yuppies when I said I love Hogs!"
"We drop you off a block from school because we're embarrased to be seen with you."
"Who needs an Education - just play the lottery!"
“But if you become a Democrat the government will give you ever-thang you need.”
"While I like the truck ads, Coach K, have you ever thought about plugging choppers?"
"No, you can not have a Honda!"
"After all our work on image, you said WHAT to you teacher?"
"You wanna work for one of them big banks in Charlotte, huh? Son, don't you care about your public image?"
