This Picture is Worth 20 Words: White House Squirrel Edition

Welcome back to Slate’s weekly caption contest. This is not just any squirrel—it's a White House squirrel, running down the driveway of the South Lawn of the White before President Obama and Michelle depart earlier this week. What is he/she fleeing? What does he/she know? Post your captions—20 words or fewer—in the comments section.


The winner:

Though a brave face was worn by all, fashion week's tribute to Windows 95 desktop themes failed to meet expectations.

The runner-up: Christopher A. Carbone

Cleverly disguised as a run-way model, the Bunny was just moments away from capturing the always elusive Trix-Cereal Dress.
