My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #543

Let's not talk about my entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #543 for October 31, 2016. The drawing is by Peter Kuper.

"Let's talk instead about moving the carpet."

Too classy? In that case, I came up with a few others:
"Well, he HAS brought us closer together."
"What would you like to talk about instead?"

Meanwhile, New Yorker cartoon editor Bob Mankoff has weighed in with his choice of the top ten captions as informed by the crowdsourced rankings. Here they are:

November 7, 2016 Update:  The Finalists

November 14, 2016 Update:  I voted for the first caption.

November 21, 2016 Update:  Winning Caption

Note:  Last week, cartoonist Benjamin Schwartz got all ruffled up. My caption smply folded. You could get lost in Contest #542.

Peter Kuper was last seen here hanging by a thread.
