Last week, we asked readers to submit possible captions for this picture (click to enlarge):

On Monday, 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 saw these hot cups at a discount party store in the Financial District here in New York City. Said our tipster, “Times are tough, eh?” We can’t be sure of that, because we’ve yet to see Davis Polk’s 2013 year-end bonuses.

But if our winning caption is any indication of the firm’s pricing model, DPW should be doing just fine:

Carries the same water as the Solo right next door — but twice as prestigious, and three times as expensive.

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 Above the Law t-shirt).
