Cost? Don’t be silly; that’s what the taxpayers are for.
Congratulations Eowyn for coming up with the winning caption!
Also, thanks to every one who played along. Look for another Caption Contest on Monday!

See, I thought for once that stating the obvious about a Caption Contest deadline — that I’d post the winner whenever, rather than a date I didn’t keep — might get you people off of my back. But nooooOOO.
So, you want a winner? Fine, you’ve got a winner. And a second place. And an honorable mention.
First Place: Bill with, “December 15, 2020: Now wait a minute, I didn’t say global global warming.”
Second Place: Timmer with, “Seriously? You ALL came on private jets and you ALL rented limos? Nobody thought to car pool?”
Honorable Mention: Ike with, “Back when I was pretending to grow up in Tennessee while going to DC prep schools, my nanna gave me this bit of wisdom: Never let leaked messages from a whistle-blower get in the way of a potentially-lucrative narrative.”

We have a winner for the Hope and Changey edition of the Caption Contest.
Congratulations to Steve whose caption “God, I Wish I Knew How To Quit You” takes first place, earning him a Moleskine notebook in which to record his witty thoughts, along with all of his other ones. (Steve, be sure to email me your snail mail address so I know where to send your notebook.)
That said, there were a few other entrants who were so clever they almost made me pee. Since I only have one Moleskine to send out, y’all will have to settle for seeing your name in hyperlinks:
Second place: Linoge with “So, do you want me to reach around or not?”
Third place: Kevin with “Yes sir, economic decisions are most difficult. I suggest you try ‘scissors’ this time.”
Thanks to everyone for playing!
