Thank you for all your entries. An interesting side note, Mr. Bailey's winning caption was the very first one we received in response to our challenge! Here's a selection of some of the other better lines that came in to our mailbox:
"Whatta you think of my British wardrobe, your Royalness?"
"You speak english really good!"
"Well, what do YOU use when you're not playing with a full deck?"
"What year were you crowned Miss America?"
"I'm often compared to the late Jester A. Arthur."
"And I thought Congress was a tough crowd!"
"1776... 1976, what's two years?"
"No, really I say dumb stuff all the time."
"Decided to wear some European-style clothing to impress you. This is the latest from Jacques Chirac, Paris ..."
"I'm the jester guy!"
"And the punchline is... I got elected!"
"You're giving me a look only a Queen can give her jester."
