Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ was another smashing success. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Emanuel needs 50 percent plus one vote to avoid a run-off and become the city's next mayor. Current Mayor Richard M. Daley announced that he will leave office in May after 22 years.
