My Entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #377 for April 22, 2013

This makes the third time I've entered The New Yorker's Cartoon Caption Contest, which is Contest #377 for April 22, 2013. After this, I should probably stop counting my entries. The drawing is by Tom Cheney. The caption is by yours truly.

"I don't care how comfortable he is here, Sherlock, you are
sending him back to Sumatra this instant!"

I had considered going with an alternative caption, one perhaps with a less obscure reference, but I decided against it. The R.O.U.S.'s were suggested by my daughter.

"Rodents of Unusual Size were funny in 'The Princess Bride.'
They are not funny in Teaneck."
