My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #557

It's time to serve up my entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #557 for February 13, 2017. The drawing is by Harry Bliss.
"Wait a minute—like WHOSE
mother used to make?"

February 23, 2017 Update:  The Semifinalists

February 27, 2017 Update:  The Finalists

March 6, 2017 Update:  I voted for the first caption, the closest to my own.

March 13, 2017 Update:  Winning Caption

July 1, 2017: Harry Bliss's syndicated daily cartoon Bliss for June 30, 2017 revisits familiar territory. It is tempting to think Mr. Bliss has restored the cartoon's original caption here, but the wording is suspiciously close to that of the first of the finalists.

Note:  Last time, cartoonist P. C. Vey cooked up a space opera. My caption couldn't fire its booster rockets, but you can still launch into Contest #556.

The blog archives have yet more temptation from Harry Bliss.

Adam and Eve—we've seen them here before.
