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. “I’m sorry, but when you look like that, who needs Jimmy Choo?”
B. “As an icebreaker, let’s all share one interesting thing about ourselves. I’ll start.”
C. “To illustrate how couples come to look alike, this is my wife.”
D. “Please hold your applause – there are eighteen more minutes of this.”
E. “Mother always said I looked best in profile.”
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: B winner, A & E Duane’s captions, E Duane’s submission
