Here is the winner from our last caption-competition photo:

REUTERSPresident Kim was nothing like the photo in the briefing (Jeremy Fletcher)Perhaps inevitably, this image provided a rich seam of humour.


Much of these drew on the Easter theme:

  • The Easter Bunny was most bemused by President Trump’s ‘robot’ dance (Che R. Seabourne)

  • Interrupting his Easter blessing, the President tried in vain to push the rabbit back into the hat (Peter Hutchinson)

  • The Easter Bunny comes face to face with a mythical, folkloric creature (Dawn Rowley-White)

  • I don’t care if you are the Easter Bunny, you’re not having a visa! (Sue Chick)

  • Bunny says ‘No, President Trump, the Easter story is definitely not fake news’ (Stephen Herring)

  • The Easter Bunny? Fake news! (Marc Cooper)

  • ‘What a ridiculous, unrealistic figure of fun,’ exclaimed the Easter Bunny (Kevin Crinks)

  • President Trump informed the Easter Bunny that he was next for the chop (Martin Joss)

  • One is a near-mythical creature with a renowned sexual appetite that only a few believe in, and the other is the Easter Bunny (Chris Goble)


Some readers suggested that the figure with whom the President is pictured is a high-level appointment:

  • Bugs Bunny — Trump’s latest CIA supremo (John Saxbee)

  • The latest appointment as National Security Adviser was certainly a surprise (Patrick Irwin)

  • President Trump felt sure that his choice of new Director of the FBI would take all his political opponents by surprise (David Walker)

  • Trump announces new Secretary for Defence (Tom Page)

  • The President swears in his new cabinet (Richard Strudwick)


Others thought that the Presi­dent’s meeting with Kim Jong-un had been brought forward:

  • The beauty of the arrangement was that the North Korean leader could confirm or deny his presence as he chose (Patrick Irwin)

  • Kim’s disguise was well O. T. T. (Eric Lishman)


Perhaps President Trump had resorted to desperate measures in relation to the Russian investigation?

  • Trump’s preferred candidate for Russia probe special prosecutor made public (Alexander Faludy)


It’s not just the UK that has been subject to Russian interference, it seems:

  • Trump was unsure if it was the Easter Bunny or President Putin in disguise about to give him a dodgy egg (Mervyn Cox)

  • President Trump welcomes Bugged Bunny to the White House (John Radford)

  • I know it’s a bunny-trap, but they can’t fool me, I can tell a pinko by the ears (Ray Morris)

  • Got me a new religious adviser for Easter. Mr Putin says he’s great (Stephen Disley)


With this President, a sex scandal is never far away:

  • Trump brought along a witness to support his denial that he had ever had an improper relationship with a Bunny Girl (Christopher Tookey)

  • President in Bunny Girl scandal (George Frost)

  • Bunny Girl claims she had a relationship with Donald Trump (John Appleby)

  • Stormy Daniels develops new skills to get to Trump (Richard Hough)


Some other entries that we enjoyed:

  • As mid-terms approached, the Democrats identified a credible candidate to run for President (Andrew Greenhough)

  • Fake hare (Simon Court)

  • Alice will be here in a minute or two, and then I’ll begin the Cabinet meeting (Ray Goode)

  • President Trump indicated how high the bar of credibility had to be set (Chris Coupe)

  • After eating the lettuce, the rabbit started on the hand­rail. The carrot top next (Bridget Swan)

  • We’re gonna build a hutch! (Frank Trethewey)

  • Trump publicly thanks his therapist (Rob Packham)

  • I promise to make rabbits great again (Janet Stockton)

  • Well, Vice-­President Bugsy, you’re in charge while I go on vacation (Lynda Sebbage).
