Congratulations to G.J. LaBonty of West Jordan, winner of The Salt Lake Tribune’s cartoon caption contest this week.

Thanks to all who submitted captions. The winners and the runners-up were chosen by the newspaper’s political cartoonist, Pat Bagley, who draws the contest cartoons.

We invite you to enter the contest next Sunday when we publish a new Bagley cartoon in search of a caption and instructions on how to send us your entries.

Here are the runners-up:
