Walt Handelsman: New Cartoon Caption Contest!

Rats!

A recent Advocate news story highlighted major holes in the state's ethics laws, with politicians taking full advantage of these unethical openings.  The scope of this mess seems large-- even by Louisiana political standards.

So what’s going on in this cartoon? You tell me. Be witty, funny, crazy, absurd or snarky---just try to keep it clean.

The winning entry will be hand-lettered into the word balloon and run on Monday, April 23rd in The Advocate print editions and online. In addition, the winner will receive a signed color print of the cartoon along with some other cool Advocate stuff!

Some honorable mentions will also be listed.

Simply email your entry to cartooncontest@theadvocate.com.        

All entries must include your name, home address and phone number.

THE DEADLINE FOR ALL ENTRIES IS THURSDAY, April 19th AT MIDNIGHT.

Good luck everyone!
