Cartoon Tomfoolery (#625)

You are invited to play this quick minor league-version of The New Yorker Caption Contest.

‘New Yorker’ drawing by John Klossner (contest 625)

Every week I enter the magazine’s contest, using it as a comic writing exercise. 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.  “A lot has happened since your last at-bat.”
B. “He’s been throwing Clovis points all night.”
C.  “What’d you bat in the hunting and gathering league?”
D.  “This explains the artwork in the dugout.”
E.  “Yeah, I hate the throwback uniforms, too.”

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, B & C Duane’s captions, B Duane’s submission
