Earlier this week, we asked our readers to submit possible captions for this photo:

On Wednesday, you voted on the finalists, and now it’s time to announce the winner of our most recent caption contest….

Just five votes separated our winner from the second-place finisher in this edition of the Caption Contest. It came down the second-most and fifth-most “liked” Disqus captions from our readers. But who takes home the coveted ATL t-shirt?

Without further ado, here’s our winning caption:

New Cooley ranking factor: Aggregate cushioned surface area.

It just goes to show that you literally cannot fail with Cooley jokes, because they’re usually so bad they’re good (which, coincidentally, may be what the Cooley rankings are really all about).

And now for the backstory on these uncomfortable-looking couches. This photo was taken in the hallway at the University of Georgia School of Law. The school is currently being renovated, and the administration bought 12 of these luxurious loungers.

Our favorite quip from a tipster: “They have turned the hallways into a therapy room, a late-night lounge, a place to house unemployed alums, etc. — pick your flavor.”

The couches were purchased for the low, low price of $8,856 a piece. And you wondered why your tuition went up by $1,000. Here’s your explanation, folks. Students at UGA Law now get to sit on almost a year’s worth of in-state tuition between classes. Hope that makes your ass feel special!

Thanks to everyone for suggesting comments and for voting. If you wrote the winning caption, feel free to email us, subject line “Caption Contest Winner,” to claim your prize.
