My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #424

Here is my entry for the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #424 for April 21, 2014. The drawing is provided by Tom Cheney and the caption is by me.

"I still say we should do the laundry at my mother's."

Here are a few other captions I came up with that I didn't use:
"Next time, hallucinate a refrigerator."
"The good news is we don't need a dryer."

"Maybe this is your idea of an oasis."
"Good news.  It's eco-friendly."
"We're only forty miles from the nearest detergent."

April 28, 2014 Update:  The Finalists

May 12, 2014 Update:  Winning Caption

Note:  Last week in Contest #423, some poor guy was abducted by his bathtub and the best caption I could come up with was this.

I'm fond of saying that Tom Cheney gives me more trouble than any other cartoonist in the caption contest, but the truth is they all give me trouble. Previous posts on Mr. Cheney are to be found here in the archives.



  1. "Georgia O'Keeffe: the early years" That would be my try. I wonder if I can post.
