Caption Contest Finalists: You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch

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

Let’s have a look at what our readers came up with, and then vote on the finalists….

Here are the finalists (some captions that received the most “likes” from readers in Disqus, mixed with some underrated captions that received the most “likes” from yours truly):

A. Some cops think this passes as probable Claus.

B. “I MUST get around the Fourth Amendment! But HOW?”
Then he got an idea! An awful idea!
“I know just what to do!” The Grinch overreacts.
And he made up some ‘specific and articulable facts’
And he chuckled, and clucked, “It’s so unbelievable!”
“With these four magic words, my search is now reasonable!”

C. That Grinch is really a disguised law school CSO employee looking for recent grads presumptively driving to work in the morning which he can add to the “employed after graduation” stats.

D. Cop in warm weather state pulls over green skinned driver for clearly being an illegal alien. After brief discussion, parties form a friendship over their similar likes for over-sized belts and ruining peoples’ day.

E. Judging by the sweet lobster sunburn on the cop, and the awesome 94 pickup with a mobile rape room in the back, I’d say the Grinch is in the company of all other fat, old people who suck at giving presents – Florida.

F. “Every Who Down in Whoville Liked [speeding] a lot…
But the Grinch,Who lived just north of Whoville, Did NOT!
The Grinch hated [speeding]! [He thought it worse than treason]!
Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be his head wasn’t screwed on just right.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
But I think that the most likely reason of all,
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
Whatever the reason, His heart or his shoes,
He stood there on [the side of the highway], [radar gunning] the Whos,” ~ State Trooper Seuss

G. See? It wasn’t a pretext stop! Our officer was green.

H. Poor Cindy-Lou Who, Who Drove 62.

I. Brian Tannebaum’s other job.

Please vote for your favorite caption in our poll, which will be open through SUNDAY, DECEMBER 30, at 11:59 PM (Eastern time). Thanks!
