Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 167

“I never dreamed they would charge the entire firm!”

(by Brendan Gannon)

My original caption: “And then I said to the judge, ‘What part of my Not Guilty plea don’t you understand, Dude?’.”

Nice work on gaining your fourth victory, Brendan Gannon (your first win was back in Contest No. 130). Congrats — once again you can proudly hold your head high, because you are definitely one of the funniest people around.

Here are the other entries that were under serious consideration:
