The Last Word: Week of Dec. 11

Come up with your own caption …

Here are this week’s winners:

“If everything is on sale how come I feel like I’m still getting ripped off?”
TREY DUNIA, Sebastopol

“I have pepper spray, and I’m not afraid to use it!”
LAUREN LEHMANN, Santa Rosa

“It’s a wonderful life, every time I make that cash register ring, an angel earns its wings.”
AL COHEN, Santa Rosa

“Dashing through the store,
With a four-wheel open cart,
Through the aisles galore,
A slight pain over my heart.

Bells on registers ring,
Credit cards melting down,
What fun it is to shop for bling
With every bargain hunter in town!”
MARK BOWMAN, Santa Rosa
