We had scores of submissions to this week's contest and lots of great offerings (although no one suggested our favorite: "Situation normal, all mucked up.")
Here are three that stood out.
Even if your submission didn't make it to the finals, you have a chance to determine the winner. Vote for your favorite cartoon caption by noon Friday through an online survey at www.sacbee.com/opinion.
The winner, which will be based on survey results and judging by The Bee's editorial board and cartoonist Steve Greenberg, will be revealed Sunday in California Forum. The winner will receive a signed color print of Greenberg's cartoon with the winning caption.
