Here are the three captions that made the final cut. Now you get to weigh in and help choose the winner. Go to the online survey at sacbee.com/opinion and vote for your favorite cartoon caption by noon Friday.
The winner, based on survey results and judging by The Bee’s editorial board and cartoonist Steve Greenberg, will be revealed Sunday in Forum. The winner will receive a signed color print of Greenberg’s cartoon with the winning caption.
