My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #504

Here is my latest entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #504 for January 4, 2016. The drawing is by Tom Cheney.
"No more Botox for you!"

As you can see, I had to make some big decisions along the way about whether to make a joke about Botox or about Viagra.
"I'm carrying more than my share in this relationship."
"Are you this stiff at work?"
"I like this concept of take-out."
"So you're the take-home message."
"So what's the take-away?"
"No more Viagra for you!"

"Let's see you do stand-up."

January 25, 2016 Update:  Winning Caption

Note:  In our last episode, cartoonist Joe Dator took Santa out for an airing. My caption stole Christmas. See the naughty and nice results of Contest #503.

Then take a look at cartoonist Tom Cheney's various appearances on this blog.



  1. I was stumped by this one so I didn't enter. The best idea I had was "man purse" but I couldn't make it work in a caption.

  2. Mine was "You're too rigid at these meetings"
