Caption Contest: The Winners!

Last Friday, our contributor and friend Justin Wolfers decided to have some end-of-the-week fun and run a caption contest for a pretty amusing picture he came across. The response was great: the post got more than 170 comments. As promised, we picked a winner based on the number of thumbs-up approvals given.
Here’s the picture again for reference:

President Obama with Treasury Secretary Geithner, while NEC Director Gene Sperling looks on.

That lucky, and witty winner, is VB in NV, who posted the following less than 10 minutes after the post went live:

“I checked the vault Mr. President, and we’re down to a stack of twenties about this high.”
Well-loved. Like or Dislike: Thumb up 284 Thumb down 13

We’re going to give you some Freakonomics swag, VB, so watch out for an email from us. Thanks to everybody for participating!
