Five Essential Captions to Choose From | Capitol Quip

The five finalists for this week’s caption contest are ready for your votes.

Using the comments section below, vote for your favorite caption until 5 p.m. EDT Thursday.

Here are this week’s finalists:

  • Poor gal. She’s still carrying a torch for that no-good Uncle Sam.
  • Boy, those Federal employees sure have it easy!
  • Liberty on furlough.
  • It looks like SHE’s just as tired of Congress as WE are.
  • I guess it’s hard to keep standing for liberty when Congress deems you non-essential.

The cartoon with the winning caption will appear on this blog on Oct. 14 and in the following day’s print edition of Roll Call. The contest winner will receive a signed color print of his or her Capitol Quip cartoon from the cartoonist, R.J. Matson.
