Last week, we asked readers to submit possible captions for this photo:
On Monday, you voted on the finalists, and now it’s time to announce the winner of our caption contest….
As is customary with our caption contests, we will now reveal the backstory behind the picture. This picture was taken in the Williams Library Reading Room at Georgetown Law. We received the nearly-nude photo from several tipsters, one of whom noted that this fellow was caught “studying in his boxers because it was ‘too hot,’ but security … escorted him out.” It must’ve been amusing to watch this go down while studying for finals.
This guy’s classmates probably didn’t know that he stripped out of his clothes to win a bet. We hear he was supposed to win $20 if he studied in his boxers for an hour or until security came to pick him up, whichever happened first. In this case, security came first. Sorry Cameron Knight, but GULC won’t stand for public nudity.
And now, without further ado, here’s the winning caption:
A young David Lat overheats while briefing Lawrence v. Texas.
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 (an ATL t-shirt).
