My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #486

Here is my entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #486 for August 24, 2015. The drawing is by Julia Suits.

"Save your cute aggression for the enemy."


August 31, 2015 Update:  The Finalists



September 14, 2015 Update:  Winning Caption



Note:  In last week's contest, cartoonist Danny Shanahan got right to the point. My caption was strictly bull. See the Hemingwayesque outcome of Contest #485.

Not only did Julia Suits sign my copy of The Best of the Rejection Collection, she included a squiggle!

    1. I don't think the link will be available until 9/14/2015 when the winning caption is announced. What was your entry?
