You are invited to play this quick minor league-version of the The New Yorker Caption Contest.
Every week I enter the contest in the magazine. Below are five captions. Three are the magazine’s semifinal selections, one is the winner, and two are mine. See if you can guess which are which.
A. “He’s been on that same story for hours. I’m beginning to think he can’t read.”
B. “He doesn’t have to go in early to the lab tomorrow.”
C. “We’re gonna need a bigger cat.”
D. “Did you just order a hundred cheese pizzas?”
E. “He wants up at six to work out on the exercise wheel.”
This cartoon is the property of The New Yorker. I devour every issue of the magazine and consider it “must” reading for writers and those who appreciate good writing.
Answers: C winner, B & E Duane’s captions, B Duane’s submission
