Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This weeks Weekend Caption Contest™ was a Mardi Gras challenge. I’d hoped that our resident New Orleans editor might chime in on the entries, but that would have required that put down his drink and come in from the balcony, leaving the Captain Morgan girls to fend for themselves. Apparently that was too tall and order… The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:
