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.

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!
