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. “The hairs on my chinny chin chin got caught in your damn escalator.”
B. “Whenever I eat an apple, everyone assumes that I’m dead.”
C. “Stop sending me spam!”
D. “For what you charge I expected more than a straw room.”
E. “Believe me, the truffles weren’t from Provence.”
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, D & E Duane’s captions, E Duane’s submission
