Five Captions Want to Medal for This Week’s Capitol Quip


The five finalists for this week’s caption contest are ready for your votes.  

Using the comments section below, vote for your favorite caption until 5 p.m. ET Thursday.  

Here are this week’s finalists:

  • I blame Bob Costas.
  • All kidding Assad, to the Viktor goes the spoils.
  • I don’t see what the problem is. Ukraine won 2 medals, and Syria wasn’t even IN the games!
  • We win the ‘cold’ medal category as well.
  • Once again, Mother Russia is ‘Putin on the Ritz.’

The cartoon with the winning caption will appear on this blog on March 2 and in the following print edition of Roll Call. The contest winner will receive a signed color print of his or her Capitol Quip cartoon from the cartoonist, R.J. Matson.
