My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #551

Give a wave to my entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #551 for January 2, 2016. The drawing is by Tom Chitty,

"It's the uncharted waters we've been hearing about!"

And some throwaways:
"We huddled masses are having second thoughts."
"Who's for trying Canada?"
"Let's try again in four years."
"But we're just sculling."
"Break into the State Anthem of the Russian Federation, everybody!"
"Who keeps saying everything will be all right?"

This is Tom Chitty's maiden voyage here on the blog.
