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. “And the worst part is this isn’t my luggage.”
B. “Stop complaining. I can be used as a flotation device.”
C. “My stomach is expandable.”
D. “If you need out, just yank my zipper.”
E. “Help me get under the seat for takeoff.”
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: E winner, C & D Duane’s captions, C Duane’s submission
