How did I manage to miss this elegant little contest/game–The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest–which offers a new way for writers to procrastinate and waste precious writing time? The New Yorker cartoons were a cherished element of my childhood reading experience (I confess I skipped reading the articles until I was well into high school years).
Check out the weekly New Yorker cartoon (by clicking this link) and tell us what caption you’d write for it. Here’s my entry for the caption:
“My doctor says it’s an off-label use for energy drink withdrawal.”
“I’m just waiting for the spuds to grow.”
Hah! I like that one, BK!
“Neo, I knew you were The One.”
“Never tell a Brooklyn bartender to keep ’em coming.”
The 70’s called. They want their beer hat back.
“I said I wanted ‘Bud’ antlers, but the bartender heard, ‘blood’.”
I had to look up the Neo reference but very apropos, Rhonda!
