@Caleb: A colored version of the comic featuring the NSA opt-out device.   Was that your entry? If only it were that easy.

Listening to the News Hour on NPR this afternoon about more NSA leakers saying they had Supreme Court members phone records, etc...I laugh and it hurts!

The entries in these contests always amaze me for their creativity.  Again here's the link to the July 2013 contest and a link to a 2012's year in captions.

Yeah, these are pretty good.  Congratulations Bnowok.

By the way, I never saw a June winner.  Did I just miss the June results?
