My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #483

Here is my entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #483 for July 27, 2015. The drawing is by Carolita Johnson.
"In your case, it isn't a God complex."

August 24, 2015 Update:  Winning Caption

Note:  In last week's contest, P. C. Vey showed us some modern wearable technology. Look, I'm not talking Apple Watch; I'm talking jet pack. It seems my caption didn't go far enough. See the rising results of Contest #482.
