There were tons of great captions on this week's contest, but in the end I had to give it to the caption that inspired the photoshop job above.

Congratulations to Wendi Aarons, our newest Caption Contest Queen! She wrote:

"Dangerous drug cartel crime lords, The Ice Cream Boys, were finally nabbed this week in Brooklyn. A city sleeps easier tonight."

I also have to give a shout-out to Marinka, who wrote the caption, "Keep calm, they can't charge us as adults" because I stole it for the title of this post. What can I say? Wendi's caption was a little long.

Honorable mention goes to Julie Gardner, who would have won if it wasn't for my baby mugshot idea. She wrote:

"Here at the Little Mensa Academy, we say 'Fromage' asshole."

A big thank you to Vanessa, the mother of these two little felons, who submitted the original photo.

Buttons-badgesWendi, I hope you wear your crown with pride, knowing that because of you, two dangerous babies are off the streets and safely behind bars. Please contact me for your Ice Cream Boys commemorative bowtie, custom made by Alligator Lane.

Everyone else, thanks for playing!

If you'd like to submit your kid's school picture for "The Mommy Shorts Yearbook", post it on the wall of the Mommy Shorts Facebook Fanpage with your kid's first name. If all goes as planned, I will be awarding things like "Best Dressed", "Class Flirt" and "Most Likely to Murder the School Photographer" next Friday.


In other news, this week has been awesome, thanks to finally coming out of the closet with my growing fetus. I'm so much happier now!

I'm super excited about my partnership with NickMom (hello, new readers!) and I even found myself with enough brainpower to start writing for Babble again.
