We kept with our summer water theme for August, and the captions kept flowing in. The final tally surged close to 800 entries this month. While it falls short of the response from July’s contest (sure to be a high-water mark), I remained quite impressed with the readers’ wit and creativity.
The most popular caption this time around was “Last call,” which was submitted by 14 different readers. Considering the volume of captions we receive, originality and unique execution can often be key factors in making the cut.
