Thanks to all who entered our latest Photo Caption Contest. As expected, your captions took the chill off what many said resembled a Cold War-era photo. (Does this mean Hillary’s 2009 Russian relation’s “reset-button” is doin’ time in the gulag?)
Now here are all the Honorable Mentions:
RockThisTown (a Caption King) submitted several winners:
Neither is capable of running a country – but they did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night!
“Would you mind lobbing a few missiles over the Bering Strait just to scare Sarah Palin?”
“Vladimir, the funny thing is you’ll never own an NFL franchise!”
(Editors Note: There is a Putin/NFL ring controversy if you are unaware.)
cfbleachers (our Caption King emeritus) had several honorable mentions:
“All I said was, I can remove freedoms and liberties faster than you can…and he got all huffy on me”

Special shout- out to LeighB who submitted a prophetic caption foreshadowing Obama’s teleprompter-free speech the next day in Berlin, which according to Chris Matthews, was “ruined by the sun.” The caption was:
