My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #512

Here is my entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #512 for March 7, 2016. The drawing is by Harry Bliss.

March 14, 2016 Update:  The Finalists

March 28, 2016 Update:  Winning Caption

Note:  Last week Jack Ziegler got out the mismatched snow shovels. My caption was as pure as the driven snow, but it drifted. (Ouch!) Don't throw your back out when you see the results of Contest #511.

Harry Bliss's work is in the blog archives. Take it to the mat...
