Photo Caption Contest Winner: Treasury Announces Taxpayers Will Lose Billions On GM Bailout

Thanks to all who made our latest photo caption contest a huge success.

We had so many clever captions I needed to bring in a “celebrity guest” to help me judge.  This “celebrity” also happens to be very familiar with the GM bailout news upon which this contest was based because he wrote the piece I linked to in our contest post.

So let’s give a hardy round of applause to Rick Newman, Chief Business Correspondent for U.S. News & World Report

Rick picks were as follows:

Third place

Second place

Will this thing outrun Issa? Submitted by fortibus85

First place

I built this!  Submitted by RockThisTown

(Who has won in the past, so I would watch my back Mr. Cfbleachers and Chris Henderson!)

Now along with those winning captions,  here are a few more that I thought deserved an extra shout out:

Warning: Objects in mirror are more liberal than they appear.


Who needs air bags with an inflated ego in the car? Both submitted by RockThisTown so congrats to you again.

Can someone shut off Clint Eastwood’s America is Coming Back voiceover? I think I’m going to be sick.  Submitted by Mr. G.

And two by Rex Lex playing off a Chevy ad slogan:

Chevy Runs Debt


Chevy Runs Deep (into your pockets!)

Thanks again to all who played along and especially to Rick Newman for being our first “out in the open” celebrity judge. (Our other celebrity judge, “Dr. Spin,” still remains anonymous and at large.)

Merry Christmas everyone and see you all next time a photo is worthy of a Tatler Photo Caption Contest.
