Lend Your Wit To The BAG! “Whoops, I Thought You Said OPEC!”

A reader, Mike, sent me this great image. I was hoping some of you might help supply a caption. I’ll take the one that sounds the most clever and rename the post with it on Wednesday night.

(I had a possibility or two in mind, which I will add to the thread.)


By the way, here’s the official description:

21 Nov 2004: U.S. President George W. Bush leaves ahead of the other leaders of the 21 member countries of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) after the end of the closing ceremony of their annual meeting in La Moneda Palace, in Santiago.

UPDATE (11/24/04 11:10 pm PST) : As promised, it’s the end of the day Wednesday (okay, an hour short) and I promised I would pick a caption I thought was pretty clever to headline this entry. A special thanks to “Disillusioned” for the assist.
