Earlier this week, we asked readers to submit possible captions for this photo:
On Friday, 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’ll now reveal the backstory behind the picture. A reader took this photo of a baby-changing station in a men’s room at the Seattle office of Perkins Coie. It’s a progressive gesture to install such a station in a men’s room; no wonder Perkins Coie has been repeatedly ranked as a “Best Company to Work For” by Fortune magazine. Or perhaps the firm’s “happiness committees” — yes, those are actually a thing — handle the men’s diaper-changing needs? It would be easier to deal with partners crapping on you all day if you don’t have to deal with your kid’s sh*t, too.
Here are the winning captions for our latest contest (there was a tie; sadly, the sink sank in the votes):
— This was installed 10 years ago and has clearly seen as much use as our other “benefits” such as 3 weeks of vacation, paternity leave, telecommuting and reduced-hours alternative partner track.
— It’s not a baby changing station, it’s a rainmaker’s penis shelf.
Thanks to everyone for suggesting comments and for voting. If you wrote one of the winning captions, feel free to email us, subject line “Caption Contest Winner,” to claim your prize (an Above the Law t-shirt).
