Technical glitches with McClatchy’s online publishing tools last weekend prevented Monday’s new challenge from showing up on our web site. We apologize for the inconvenience, and appreciate the many good entries from folks who saw the challenge via their print edition of the paper.

Here are a few more entries from this week that caught our eye:

“Who (re)moved my cheese?” From many readers

“They left me more than I expected.”

“Wedge politics at its worse.”

“Already I have to jump through hoops.”

“Hakuna matata.”

“I feel Goofy.”

“What hole?”

“My Medicaid expansion plan . . . so far . . .”

Feel free to join a discussion about the winner, add more captions of your own, or let us know your favorites in the 'Comments' section below (using your Facebook account). Please join us again Monday, Jan. 23, (assuming no more hacks, bugs or snafus) for a new cartoon caption challenge. – Kevin Siers
