I honestly hadn’t thought of the "when pigs fly" angle when I drew this caption contest toon, but several of you out there did. I like it when we’re surprised like that by readers’ creativity. The winning entry came from Jim Holler of Bentley. Jim’s won several times and might be our champion multiple winner by now. Here are a couple of the variations on the winged pig theme: From Donald Ramsey of Colwich came the caption, "We’ll fly to D. C. for the inauguration, Senator." Karen Wallace of Wichita sent "His chances? I’ll let you know when I feel wings sprouting." Going in a different direction was Tom McElroy, who submitted "I think they should put up a wall and secure the border." Carmen Churchman of Wichita sent in "He is so far behind, he thinks he’s leading the pack!" Then there was George Hanson’s caption: "You know, we lie in this stuff a while and we get brown backs too." From Casey Jones came "Even though he used to be a conscientious Senator from Kansas who morphed into a presidential candidate that ignores his Senatorial duties, I heard he still doesn’t believe in evolution." Belle Plaine’s Richard Julius was sort of on the same wavelength: ‘Sam already has a job he ignores!" Lastly, good old Bruce Cole took off another way entirely with "This guy needs less coffee. He’s waving at farm animals!"
