Good start, and some new names, too. Hmmm... Let's see what the regulars do with this one... More captions on Monday, I'm sure.


"First he asked to speak to my supervisor, but now I think he wants a more 'hands on' approach!"


Sorry this is slow in getting posted today. I took a vacation day to take my son on a college visit, but the caption contest waits for no man!

A personal note: This week's crop of captions is just fantastic. Thank you all. The only downside is it's going to make picking five finalists really difficult. There are at least 20 deserve to win, much less be listed. So congratulations to all of you!
