cartoon caption - bailout - any artists out there?

Newspapers are attracting readers with interactive features on their websites: polls, reader comments, reader caption contests, companion videos and photos. These are all good ideas to be made better on indymedia. Are there any artists who can draw some un-captioned cartoons?

I'm not very good at artwork. I wonder if anyone on indymedia has a friend who can draw a cartoon with a blank caption and then publish it here to launch a caption contest.

Any image would work, again artists are a bit more creative. And the audience on indymedia could create some really wonderful captions.

One example: I was thinking of an image of 3 guys in suits, taking a leak on some object to signify the real victims here. Like a coffin , or the statue of liberty laying on the side. The coffin labeled voters, rest of the world, or consitution etc. One of the guys could be holding a briefcase that said wall street, the other, Washington, the other World Bank etc etc blah blah, you get it.
