Six-Word Caption Contest #18 (And Winner #17)

This President’s Day we challenge you to take a pensive pause from the often-insane political process and put forth your best six words for the picture you see here. You, Sir, may be no Jack Kennedy, but if your six gets our vote you’ll win $50 on Shutterfly. Share your six-word caption by 5pm EST on Friday, Feb. 22 in the comments area below to describe the photo you see here. Each entry should be a separate comment and you can submit up to 10 entries; read the official rules for more details.

Contest #17 winning caption describing the photo from last week’s contest is “Heart’s been hung out to dry,” by Meowmag.
