Thanks for all your entries. Kudos also go to Brandon Swann of Baltimore who submitted a variation of the winning caption. There were a ton of entries this week, and far more good lines than we can reproduce here. These are just a few:
"Don't ax, don't tell."
"Give me a teleprompter and no one will know the difference!"
"I wanted to talk turkey but you didn’t bring your teleprompter."
“I know you want to talk turkey, but I’d rather talk ham.”
"We need more pork."
"Best turkeys? I'd go to the Republican debate."
"Mr. President, Congress is giving me a bad name."
"Keep it up and, next year, no family will be able to afford a turkey."
"I still have all my feathers because the Republicans are too busy plucking the middle class."
"The GOP gave you the bird this year."
"Looks like I'm not the only one getting stuffed this year."
"Looks like we're both on the chopping block."
"GOPble, GOPble, GOPble."
"Gobble, gobble up everybody's money."
"These GOP debates are making me look good."
"I've seen you negotiate. I like my chances."
"We both fear future cuts."
“Pardon me, but you’re done!”
"Well, I'm thankful for the You Write the Caption contest."
