Wednesday Caption Contest: Part 72

This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


Here is the actual caption:
A demonstrator dressed as a "penguin" lies on a road as riot police officers stand guard outside Chile's Ministry of Education during a strike, at which Chilean teachers demanded higher wages, in Santiago, September 26, 2006. Chilean students are traditionally known as "penguins".

A likely excuse. Come on, give us the real story.

Entries will remain open until 11:59 PM, Central Standard Time, Tuesday, October 3rd. Submit your captions in the comments section, or email at mccracken.ken@gmail.com.
