It looked like you caption writers had your own “Inaugural Ball” from the number of entries to our latest contest.
With so many good ones, I asked “Dr. Spin,” who came directly from the Inaugural red carpet (hobnobbing with movie stars) to judge our contest. (I would post the red carpet photo, and it would make an awesome photo caption contest, but I am not sure if Dr. Spin is a real or an imaginary friend or if he is even actually judging this contest.)
Life is a tad bit confusing these days!
So here are the Honorable Mentions (with many inspired by the imaginary Inaugural Edition of the dead tree Newsweek cover.)
This is how you should pray to me.

If you’re a narcissist and you know it, clap your hands.
This one was hilarious. Congratulations, Chris!
Today being “The Day That It Is,” here is a photo from the last Republican President’s Inauguration of yours truly with my (not imaginary) husband.
See you all next time a photo (certainly not this one) is worthy of a Tatler Photo Caption Contest.
