Cartoon Caption Contest

Cartoon Poll: Which American Eagle caption fits best?


We received more than 150 submissions to our legal-themed caption contest this month—a surprising number of which expressed dismay at the eagle’s interpretation of change of venue.

Here are the ABA Journal staff picks for April. Please use the poll to vote for your favorite and help pick the winner.

“Wait! I told the judge that you weren’t a flight risk!”—submitted by Natalie C. Rougeux of New Braunfels, Texas

“It’s the new expedited disbarment procedure.”—submitted by Stephen Walsh of Kansas City, Mo.

“Forget about me. Save the billing summary!”—submitted by Hermes Fernandez of Albany, N.Y.

The new fast-tracking method of removing state cases to federal court came as a complete surprise to Frank!—submitted by Shawn P. K. Huston of San Diego, Calif.

How to vote: Using our poll, select the caption you think best fits the scene depicted in the cartoon.

Voting period: Votes for the April “Eagle” contest must be cast by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, April 27.

What’s the prize?: Bragging rights. Plus, the winning caption and credit to the caption writer will appear in an upcoming issue of the ABA Journal.
