My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #583

Who'll stand for my entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #583 dated September 11, 2017? The drawing is by Teresa Burns Parkhurst.
"Who says corporations can't show restraint?"

These captions failed corporate compliance:
"Be patient. Last year no one thought we'd get rid of our Confederate flag."
"He spoke truth to power."
"He folded, spindled, and mutilated."

September 18, 2017 Update:  The Finalists

September 25, 2017 Update:  I voted for the second caption.

October 2, 2017 Update:  Winning Caption

Note:  Last week cartoonist Drew Dernavich gave us a bicycle built for two. My caption took a back seat. Pedal your way through Contest #582.

This is the first appearance of Teresa Burns Parkhurst on the blog—or for that matter in the New Yorker. Has any cartoonist made her magazine debut before in the Caption Contest?
