Smithereens Cartoon Caption Contest:

What do you want to say about Congress?


Mike Smith

What do you have to say about Congress? Tell us in the November installment of the Smithereens Cartoon Caption Contest.

A new Congress has been elected, but we're going to give you one more chance to tell us what you think about your representatives.

It's time once again for the monthly Smithereens Cartoon Caption Contest, where Mike Smith provides a cartoon with a blank word bubble and you tell us what it should say.

Just enter your suggestion in the comments below or on our Facebook page.

Entries will be accepted until 5 p.m. Monday. The Sun's editors will pick their five favorites, and then readers can vote for the best from Wednesday through Nov. 26. We'll announce the winner Nov. 30.

You can see last month's winner here.

Good luck.
