"Only YOU will pay for this mess!"

"Only you can prevent fiscal fires at Duke."

Thanks for all your entries. The judges this week were biased in favor of captions that actually acknowledged the Reddy Kilowatt/Smokey Bear mashup I attempted. Most of those that did so, however, all pretty much said the same thing, in mostly the same words. Perhaps there IS only one caption for this drawing. If so, Steve Ladue wrote it the most succinctly of anyone.
Here's a selection of some of the other better lines we received this week:
"Only you can return us to a level of environmental awareness from the 1950s."
"Remember. Only you can pay for our environmental disasters."
"Only the NC Legislature can prevent corporate responsibility."
"Reddy to pay the cleanup bill?"
"Only you can prevent torrent mires."
"Only you can prevent horrid liars."
"My customers are going to get a charge out of this mess."
"Ash not what I've done for my country."
"I'll clean it up, but watt's in it for me?"
"You only wish you could prevent me!"
