There were 82 people vying for the position of the newest Caption Contest Queen. (Read all the entries here.) But sadly, there can only be one winner. Lori from In Pursuit Of It All poured through the entries and made her ruling. She even went above and beyond and helped picked the runner-ups. The Queen's reputation needs to be upheld after all.
"I cut a bitch to get in and I will cut a bitch to get out!"
Congratulations, Poppy! You may have to physically yank the crown off Lori's head, but when you do— it is all yours.

For those of you who don't understand that last one, read this amazing piece from Lori that she just had the honor of reading at BlogHer's Voices of the Year.
Thank you to Natalie from Mommy of a Monster & Twins for providing this picture so we could make fun of her children and judge her parenting methods.
As for Poppy, put on your prettiest dress for the crowning ceremony and stick a shiv in your purse to deal with Lori. Maybe they sell shivs at Shop At Home.
The crown is yours until I call on you to judge the next one. Be ready!
