My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #590

When I'm not spelunking, I'm posting my entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #590 for October 30, 2017. The cave drawing is by Tom Cheney.

"Ten thousand years from now, who's gonna care?"

These captions were too anachronistic.

"Well, I don't have time to decorate, what with all the
hunting and gathering."
"I told you the graffiti wasn't mine."
"All he thinks about is food."

November 6, 2017 Update:  The Finalists

November 13, 2017 Update:  I voted for the second caption.

November 20, 2017 Update:  Winning Caption

Note:  Last week cartoonist Christopher Weyant served up quite a menu. My caption had food poisoning, but you can still feast on Contest #589.

Check out the prehistory of my posts on Tom Cheney.
