Thank you for all your entries. This was a tough one to judge -- most folks were all thinking along the same lines this week. Mr. Cox's entry was judged to be the best written, even if a couple other readers had similar variations of a good idea.
As usual, feel free to discuss any of this in our "Comments" section. Just click the blue link below this post and add your observations, criticisms or additional captions!
Here's a selection of some of the other better lines we received:
“I got it for surviving town halls and redistricting plan meetings.”
"I offered to buy the world a Coke."
"The Nobel Prize Committee says I may already be a winner!"
