My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #514

Here is my entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #514 for March 21, 2016. The drawing is by Liam Francis Walsh.

"What does cartoon logic say about us using our guns?"

These captions didn't advance:
"We need to rock harder!"
"I knew we should have taken the merry-go-round!"
"Well, the good news is they aren't gaining."

Note:  Last week, P. C. Vey finally got a handle on the office briefcase. Actually, three handles. Whatever the case, Contest #513 clearly means business.

Chase down the collected blog posts about Liam Francis Walsh including some old Caption Contests.

It might just be time to try on your Easter bonnet and these Easter posts as well.



  1. Have you been rating the captions the last two weeks? What do you think about the process? To me, it's not clear if all entries are available for rating. Even if they are all available, I still have the same skepticism I had before.
