Caption This! (September 21, 2012)

What in the Bitter Lawyer is going on here?

Put your lawyerly wisdom to the test and post a comment below or on Facebook with a witty, hilarious, or brilliant caption to this clever comic, courtesy of And keep it clean(ish) and, y’know, respectful.

The editors’ pick will be announced next week, and then we’ll post the clip art with the text on Facebook.

Last Week’s Winner

Bobby Olson (believed to be a robot himself) submitted last week’s Caption This! winning entry on Facebook: “By Brian’s third year at the big firm, the transformation was complete.” Nicely captioned Bobby! See the final cartoon to the left and on Facebook (yes, we made a minor tweak to the caption). And thanks to everyone who submitted a caption!

    I know I need to spend time in the slammer for spousal abandonment, but this ugly ape looks just like my spouse, and serving time with this ugly ape is akin to spousal abuse.
