The Tuesday Cutline…a Winner!

Happy New Year, folks! After a holiday hiatus, we’re finally ready to reveal our Tuesday Cutline winner (on a Wednesday, no less). To jog your memory, our photo by Philippe Huguen/AFP/Getty Images featured a Santa Claus perusing a toy aisle. Here’s the original caption:

“A Santa Claus walks through a toy store in Lille, northern France, on December 15, 2012.”

We received several great captions. Many inquired about the whereabouts of Santa’s band of elves and others noticed this Santa Claus’ belly probably didn’t shake like a bowl full of jelly (a pre-holiday diet perhaps?). But our winner touched upon the likely origin of the gifts Santa is about to buy. So without further ado, congrats to William Ries! You’ll be receiving a NewsHour mug for your winning caption:

“Made in china, made in china, made in china…”

Thank you all for playing along. Join us next week for another Tuesday Cutline.
