Thursday’s OTB Caption ContestTM is now closed. We had a number of fine entries over the long weekend, resulting in our first-ever 1st place tie.

The winners:

1st (tie): Hermetic, “Groups celebrated Lawrence vs. Texas in a number of different ways.”

1st (tie): Rodney Dill, “Even after marshalling the efforts of the Supremes, Sandra Day O’Connor could not escape one essential fact. She was an old dog, and this was a new trick.”

2nd: Graham Lester, “Scientists have discovered that certain Arctic canines regulate environmental flatulence by rolling the most egregious offenders over the tops of high cliffs.”

3rd: Chris Lawrence, “If dogs governed themselves, this is what logrolling would look like.”
