My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #553

Here is what's left of my entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #553 for January 16, 2017. The drawing is by Joe Dator.

"Otherwise, it was a great 100 days."

After the fact, I realize I should have revised this to "Otherwise, it wasn't a bad 100 days." But deadlines are deadlines...

January 23, 2017 Update:  The Finalists

January 30, 2017 Update:  I voted for the first caption, which just happened to be the most similar to my own.

February 6, 2017 Update:  Winning Caption

Note:  Last week, cartoonist Robert Leighton went rowing in the desert. My caption couldn't stay afloat. Be sure to bring your own water bottle to Contest #552.

Check out my blog posts about Joe Dator before it's all over.
