You all did it! These contest entries really did make me laugh while I was making my way through the five stages of grief over the election results.
To quickly re-cap, (for those who are too lazy to go back to the original contest post explaining the French poster in the photo) this was taken by yours truly last August on a sidewalk outside an art gallery in the northern coastal town of Honfleur, France.
The title of the poster is “New America.”
With that in mind, here are the Honorable Mentions, but seriously there were so many great ones, just go back and read them all.

Grand prix, and you can pronounce that any way you like.
And the best of the best of the best:
We are naming a street after your twice elected President, it’s called Rue The Day.
Cfbleachers take a bow, or kiss – kiss the cheek – cheek since after all, this was a French poster caption contest.
You are amazing! Can I sit with you on the train heading to reeducation camp?
Thanks everyone for playing along. See you all next time there is a photo worthy of a Tatler Photo Caption contest. (And if there are no more contests, then you know where to find me and cfbleachers.)
