My Entries in the Moment Cartoon Caption Contest for September/October 2017

Feast upon my entries in the Moment Cartoon Caption Contest for September/October 2017. The drawing is by Benjamin Schwartz.

"Kosher style my rump."
"And this you call assimilation?"
"Never mix meat slop and dairy slop."
"Why don't you come over for a real
Shabbos dinner?"
"Do you know when I'll eat that? When people fly!"

Jewish Humor Glossary:  Kosher style is a catering term, not a religious term, with reference to food that may appear to be in the Jewish tradition without being certified kosher. Dietary law strictly separates meat and dairy. Shabbos is one way of saying the Jewish Sabbath.

December 2, 2017 Update: The Finalists

Hog Sameach is a pun on the Hebrew greeting Chag Sameach, a way of wishing someone a joyous holiday or festival. Please vote for your favorite caption here. The deadline is December 20, 2017. While you're there, why not enter the current contest yourself? It's super.

January 23, 2018 Update: Winning Caption

  Benjamin Schwartz creates the caption contests for Moment magazine. 
I now have more than four years' worth of Moment Cartoon Caption Contests in the archives. How many bloggers do you suppose can make that claim?

But why stop there? I just might be compulsive enough to have preserved all the cartoon caption contests I ever entered.
