Congratulations to Fred Brady of West Valley City, winner of The Salt Lake Tribune's cartoon caption contest this week:
"I talk to the trees, too. But they never listen to me, either."
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:
"A Fist Full of Nonsense. Dah-dee-dah-dee-dah. Dah! Dah! Dah!"
Christine B. Helfirch
Salt Lake City
"Gunfight at the IKEA Corral"
"Old gunfighters never die. They just ramble on, and on, and on."
Erin C. Hallenburg
"I know what you're thinking. Did he take his medication this morning?"
"What kind of an idiot brings a chair to a gunfight?"
