Paul took another approach
Paul H H
Unfortunately for restaurateur Bruno Basiltoff, budgetary constraints forced him to make what proved to be some unwise cutbacks on the design for the al fresco dining area at his new establishment.

As a vertically challenged person, I can relate to this one
Jonathan Popp
You must not be this tall to ride this ride.

There’s always at least one political caption…
P. Parmley
A fine example of bi-partisan co-operation (red seats, blue framework). Your government at work, proud Citizens!

But this weeks WINNER of a brand new Bucky Book has to go to THIS timely caption.
Linda L.

Wait until he tries to Jurassic Parallel Park

REMEMBER TO USE YOUR NAME IN THE SUBJECT LINE!
Deadline is Friday at 4 PM.

Bain Capital bought our circus,” sighed Spanky the Clown, “and the next thing you know, they’ve outsourced our jobs to Liechtenstein and I’m out on street!”

Sing this one to the tune of “ Buddy, Can you Spare a Dime”
G.V. Parmelli
Once I built a franchise, meat on the bun, Burgers replete with pink slime. Once I built a franchise, now it's done, Brother, can you spare a dime?

And this week’s winner, speaks the truth with THIS one!
Erin L
No one has job security these days
