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

You voted on the finalists, and now it’s time to announce the winner of our contest…

As is customary with our caption contests, we’ll now reveal the backstory behind the picture. A reader snapped this photo outside of a restaurant in his firm’s building in Detroit. Our tipster said, “Kinda nails it on the head, doesn’t?” For the many people who were frustrated by their bonuses, it sure does.

Here’s our incredibly appropriate winning caption. Drink up, associates!
