Put a bow on it

You don't even have to leave home to find the perfect gift for us. Just come up with a clever idea for our caption contest.

Your caption here.

Santa's helper, we have a contest for you.

This is for after you've shopped 16 straight hours, after you've wrestled a grandma to the ground for the last combination PlayStation/plasma television/pizza defroster. By the time you stagger home you should be inspired to create a winning entry for our Buy Till You Die Holiday Shopping Caption Contest.

Give us a funny line for this Don Morris cartoon showing a shopper who has apparently reached the end of his rope, or his ribbon.

The best entries will be published in the Times. Mail it to: "Buy Till You Die," Floridian, St. Petersburg Times, 490 First Ave. S, St. Petersburg, FL 33701. Or e-mail your caption to please include Buy Till You Die in the subject line.

Deadline is Thursday.
