We're faced with a rare but pleasant surprise as the judges open the sealed golden envelope revealing the winner of the EE Life cartoon caption contest for July: a tie.
David Ashton, the pride of Australia and one of our favorite EE Lifers, and Spreadspcowboy both received the most number of votes in a hard fought contest to determine the best line to go with Daniel Guidera's building blocks cartoon.
Ashton's winning line: "Welcome to the "Sweatshop Lab". Those little cubes are where we live at night. Mine's 'B'."
Spreadspcowboy's winning line: "Having assembled the necessary building blocks, the team starts testing their design."
Each will receive an inked and signed version of the cartoon with his winning caption emblazoned on it, as well as the thanks of grateful EE Life judges.
August's contest is alive and well, as Guidera is back with a march of the penguins. As they say in Chicago politics, write captions early and often!
