My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #599

Latch onto my entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #599 for January 8, 2018. The drawing is by Michael Maslin.

"Quit working on the wheel and invent some antibiotics, dammit!"

Here's another I perhaps should have used:
"It's an ankle bracelet. I'm under cave arrest."

January 15, 2018 Update:  The Finalists

January 22, 2018 Update:  The voting was taken off the website early, before I had the chance to vote. I think I might have chosen the second caption.

January 29, 2018 Update:  Winning Caption

Note:  Last week cartoonist Danny Shanahan took us on a climb up to visit the guru sitting on an exercise ball. My caption came away only with altitude sickness. Contemplate Contest #598.

This blog has served up quite a bit about cartoonist Michael Maslin over the years, and you can bite into it all here.

  1. Thanks for almost voting for my caption! You voted for my caption in contest 590, when I came in 3rd place :( worked out better this time! Incredibly honored and lucky to have been a finalist twice in just a few months. I did not expect to win, but somehow the caption struck a chord.

  2. Congratulations, Josh! Happy to be almost able to help.
