Weekday Caption Contest™

Every now and then, a photo comes out just too late to be used in the Weekend Caption Contest, and we here at Wizbang beat our heads against the wall at the missed opportunity.

Not this time.

This time, the photo was so damned great, we decided to hold the very first Wizbang Weekday Caption Contest.

Senators Christopher Dodd, left (D-Conn.), Joseph Lieberman, center (D-Conn.) and Edward Kennedy, right (D-Mass.), all speak on their cell phones during a news conference in the Riverwalk area of downtown New Orleans on Friday, Sept. 16, 2005. They and other senators are touring the Gulf Coast to view hurricane damage. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)

Winners should be announced Thursday.

Update: Comments closed, winners announced here.
