This is the photo we gave you for our latest caption contest — a picture of David Boies and Ted Olson, adversaries turned allies, sharing a hug.

You voted on eight clever captions. Which one won?

Earlier this week, we solicited funny captions for this photo (a great image for the July 4th weekend, given all the American flags):

You responded with around 70 comments. This was a smaller-than-usual number of nominees, but they were of high quality. There were about 25 or so that we saw as worthy contenders. Alas, to make the contest workable, we winnowed the entries down to a shortlist of eight.

Check them out and vote — warning: some crude / juvenile humor ahead (if you can’t handle it, stop reading now) — after the jump.

P.S. Consistent with our caption contest practice, we’re not providing you with any information about the provenance of this photo, so as not to limit your creativity. But we recognize that many of you will figure it out (and that’s okay).


For this caption contest, we gave you empty chairs…

And you gave us funny captions.

Alex Kozinski and David Lat at CEI Dinner

Chief Judge Alex Kozinski (9th Cir.) and your above-signed writer, at the 2010 Annual Dinner of the Competitive Enterprise Institute.


Last Thursday, June 17, I had the pleasure of attending the 2010 annual dinner of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, in Washington, D.C. In case you’re not familiar with it, CEI is “a public interest group dedicated to free enterprise and limited government” — i.e., a libertarian think tank.

At this year’s dinner, the honoree was a legal luminary with libertarian leanings: Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Given my adoration of Judge Kozinski, the proximity of Washington to New York, and the fact that I was already going to be in D.C. — for a dinner of the Society of Professional Journalists (Kash and I wrote a magazine story that was nominated for an award) — how could I not attend?

A write-up of the proceedings and a slideshow, after the jump.

Last week, we gave you this photo from a D.C. law firm — click on the image to enlarge — and asked you to propose funny captions:

One popular submission with readers, though not with us, was this one:

The caption contest reaches a new low with a picture of chairs in an elevator.

Well, good lawyers know how to make a lackluster case shine — and can come up with funny, creative captions for a dull photo.

See the top ten captions that floored us, and vote for your favorite, after the jump.

An Above the Law reader snapped this photo at her law firm, and we think it’s ripe for a caption:

There are two occasions that inspire people to scrawl messages on their cars’ windows: sporting events and graduations. With either one, white paint on the back windshield lets the world know you’re a winner.

An ATL reader spotted a writing-festooned Lexus parked outside of the Boston Harbor Hotel and sent us the photo below, which we turned over to you for captioning. This Boston law student’s graduation was celebrated with both caps thrown in the air and errors thrown into capital letters:

Over 3,400 caption contest votes were cast. The runner-up, with 17% of the votes, is:

“My other ‘M’ got deferred.”

And the winner is…

Elena Kagan has the face that launched a thousand comparisons. TMZ thought she looked like Kevin James. The man wooing her via Craigslist thinks she’s a cross between Carrie Fisher, Laura Linney, and Bette Midler.

We polled you, and the results are in. Who is the winner of the Elena Kagan Look-Alike Contest?

Le Fou and Le Kagan

Solicitor General Elena Kagan is a woman to be respected. She’s a product of Princeton, Oxford, and Harvard Law School. She’s one of the Elect (OT 1987 / Marshall). She’s taught at two of the nation’s top law schools and served as dean of one of them. She’s America’s lawyer, and if confirmed this summer, she’ll become the 112th justice of the U.S. Supreme Court — and the fourth woman to hold that position.

She’s inspiring.

She inspires in other ways too, though. Ever since photos of her started gracing websites and newspapers across the land, she has inspired comparisons to numerous other people and fictional characters when it comes to her looks, ranging from Kevin James of King of Queens to Kathy Bates.

She just has one of those faces. BuzzFeed picked up on our post about who she looks like and came up with a list of 24 people she resembles.

Let’s settle this. Who does she MOST resemble? Vote, after the jump.
