Caption Contest 121

Your challenge this week is to come up with the best replacement dialog for this comics panel:

The best entry (as judged by yours truly) wins the author's choice of either any item they like or any portrait to be included in HeroMachine 3′s final release, or a custom black and white “Sketch of the Day” style illustration (you pick the subject, I draw it however I like).

All entries must be left as a comment (or comments) to this post. Keep ‘em clean (appropriate for a late-night broadcast TV show), but most importantly, keep ‘em funny!

This one should be a bit more challenging than usual, both because you're coming up with an editorial caption instead of dialog and because, let's face it, keeping them clean enough for late-night television won't be easy.

No limit to entries, but please, self-edit and only put up ones you genuinely think are good!
