This week’s Cartoon Caption Contest

The costs of gasoline and crude oil have set records in the past few weeks. Even if oil prices decline, drivers may not see an immediate savings. So what would George W. Bush be saying here as he’s wrapped up by the hose of a gasoline pump?

Come up with a pointed caption for this cartoon and post it in the comments link below. Keep it clean (this is a family website) and keep it brief (brevity is the soul of wit). When you post, include your name and the name of the city where you live. If you wish to remain anonymous from others, simply email your caption idea to me at Your deadline is noon Friday.

We’ll post the winner’s name and caption here Saturday morning, along with several runner-ups. If you send us your name and address, we’ll mail the winning writer a color print of the cartoon with the caption, signed by Rob Tornoe. Please allow at least 4 weeks for delivery.

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to email me at

Good luck, and have fun!
