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 have to warn you, I don’t exactly have a bladder of steel.”
B. “I feel like we’ve gotten a little soft, Lex.”
C. “Don’t worry about me getting up; my bladder has super-storage.”
D. “I’m always amazed these things actually fly.”
E. “You really shouldn’t be reading comic books.”
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: A winner, C & E Duane’s captions, E Duane’s submission
