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. “Ask again if anyone turned in a phone.”
B. “If you were banished to a city of five million, what three albums would you take?”
C. “Yes, I asked very politely. But he still says the rest room is for employees only.”
D. “I let him know we are expecting a raft.”
E. “I feel we should rethink our immigration policy.”
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 & D Duane’s captions, B Duane’s submission
