Wow! You folks did it again! With only three days to beat the deadline clock this time, more than 300 of you sent in a wide variety of funny, crazy, loopy, scary and just plain strange (in a good way) punchlines. With dozens of “Obama took the money,” “Jindal took the money,” Blame Bush,” “Obamacare broke us” and even “Edwin Edwards took the money” punchlines, here are the winners for the St. Patrick’s Day Caption Contest. Great job, everyone. Keep your punchline pad handy... We’re gonna do it again soon.

• Donald Moore - Baton Rouge: “Yikes!!! Our trust fund has been used to balance the state budget.”

• Tom Douglass - New Orleans: “What do you mean Drew and Jimmy took it all.”
