Congratulations to Fred Brady of West Valley City, winner of The Salt Lake Tribune's cartoon caption contest this week:

"I talk to the trees, too. But they never listen to me, either."

Thanks to all who submitted captions. The winners and the runners-up were chosen by the newspaper's political cartoonist, Pat Bagley, who draws the contest cartoons.

We invite you to enter the contest next Sunday when we publish a new Bagley cartoon in search of a caption and instructions on how to send us your entries.

Here are the runners-up:

"A Fist Full of Nonsense. Dah-dee-dah-dee-dah. Dah! Dah! Dah!"

Christine B. Helfirch

"Gunfight at the IKEA Corral"

"Old gunfighters never die. They just ramble on, and on, and on."
