Contest of Cartoon Captions*

Why should the The New Yorker have all the fun?** Let's have our own cartoon caption contest. I draw. You caption. (We'll see if this works.) Today's illustration:


Submit your entry.

All submissions will be judged by a panel of monkeys in top hats and monocles (each possessing an achingly dry wit that far surpasses your own). Winners will be awarded our grubby, thumbed-through back-copies of The New Yorker.

* Note the unique name. No lawsuits here, nosiree.

** Because you know that place is cray-zee: late night fact-checking parties, ribald puns about ampersands and tildes, uproarious debates on the comparative merits of en versus em dashes. Whoo! (Actually, I would like to see that en/em dash thing.)


  1. "Now, I suppose you think that I'm going out to get worms for them!"

    "Well, what happens when you want to have a nap?"

  2. "If you wear that to bed, I'm gonna eat them in the night."

  3. "Your fashion sense really cracks me up."
