We have a winner!

The writers of FOTM voted for what each considered to be the best (#1) and second-best (#2) captions. Each #1 vote is worth 4 points; a #2 vote is worth 2 points. Only two points separated the winner from the runner-up!

And the clear winner of the 217th FOTM Caption Contest, with three #1 votes, totaling 12 points, is . . .


Here is the winning caption:

The UN General Assembly listens intently to 2019 Person of the Year, Greta Thunberg

Mark VII Ltd is in second place, with one #1 vote and one #2 vote, totaling 6 points. Here is his caption:

As we always suspected, this secret photo of Congress in session reveals that they really are dummies….

Omega-man, Rjwanderer and Splitfinger, with one #1 vote each, and Larry and Lou Minati, each with two #2 votes, are in third place, each with 4 points. Here are their captions:

omega-man: “Frank Luntz’s focus group.”

Rjwanderer: “Night of the Living Dems”

Splitfinger: “A UN Climate conference”

Larry: “Clinton body count”

Lou Minati: “What President Trump sees when he looks at the White House press pool – a roomful of dummies.”

Son of Ham is in 4th place, with one #2 vote and 2 points. Here is his caption:

Attention Please: May the Hillary for President 2020 Campaign Begin!
