This week's cartoon caption contest set a new record for submissions. It was a tough call, but below are five we deemed worthy of being finalists.
Even if you didn't make the finalist list, you and other readers will have a chance to determine the winner. (Update: Voting is now closed.)
The winner, which will be based on survey results and judging by The Bee's editorial board and cartoonist Steve Greenberg, will be announced Sunday in the California Forum section. The winner will receive a signed color print of Greenberg's cartoon with the winning caption.
