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 photo was sent to us by a tipster who told us that Dean Lawrence Mitchell of Case Western Law throws dinner parties at his house quite frequently and sometimes invites students to attend. Apparently the man is quite the Sinophile, which explains his fabulous robe (and the old Chinese books our tipster claims are scattered throughout the dean’s home).
Here’s some additional commentary from our tipster on Dean Mitchell’s attire in this picture:
Economic worries? Never fear, Case students, this guy’s got it totally under control.
Sigh. If only Dean Mitchell had a publicist like Beyonce’s to keep his unflattering photos under control.
But without further ado, here’s the winning caption:
This is the number of s**ts I do not give about my students.
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).
