Thread: FLS Caption Contest
The Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star's Editorial Cartoonist is about as liberal as they come... and unable to be reasoned with. Predictably, he's created a cartoon depicting his view of McDonald for this week's caption contest. I'm sure we have some creative folks here who can come up with something funny while making a point for our view... even though he surely thinks he's priming the other side.
The good news: You don't have to sign up for any site membership to submit an entry.
The bad news (1): They do require you to give your name and an e-mail address to enter.
The bad news (2): Despite his insistence of fairness, he determines the finalists for public voting by passing the entries around his office, full of liberal newspaper reporters... so don't expect to get any farther than the first round.
But... for our own amusement, we can share the entries here!
Here's the link to the page to enter.
Here's the cartoon:

Be careful out there. That is an unholstered gun, and a long gun at that. We can't talk about such strange things on this forum.

As promised, the editorial cartoonist picked four of the lamest captions imaginable for the final "contest"... I pasted them below. I also changed the image link to the "Weekly Challenge" where you can vote if you want to bother... but you do have to have a login for that.
- I’m in charge and I said dance!
- I call this baby my "Decision Maker"
- And yet fireworks are illegal. Strange, huh?
I think I decided my personal favorite caption for this cartoon would be:
"What're ya gonna say NEXT State of the Union, Mr. President???"
He wore his gun outside his pants for all the honest world to see. Pancho & Lefty
The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us....There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! ...The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, Sir, let it come …………. PATRICK HENRY speech 1776
I dunno. The fireworks one is pretty good, just not really 2A in nature.
