Who Should Win the Caption Contest?
I said that I would decide who should win the caption contest today. But I'm having a tough time making a decision because there are a number of good entries. So I've decided to make the contest more democratic and let the winner be decided by a vote. I've selected my top eight choices. Pick your favorite, and cast your vote. I'll let the voting run for a day or two.
Update: As of Dec. 23, Kieran won the vote . Congratulations!

Go ahead and vote more than once, Nettie. The right one will eventually win, just like in Florida.

It's one vote per ip address. So to vote twice you'd need to use a different computer.

I like Kierans, that's why I voted for it.

Here's mine "and here we come upon one of the most ancient forms of pornography. This statue is called "The moaning Clinton", it's a Lewinsky.

Yeah, I tried but Kierans is great.
