My Entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #605

Take a good look at my entry in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #605 for February 26, 2018. The drawing is by Robert Leighton.

"Are you conceptual art or are we?"

These captions did not imitate life:

"Here we see even Van Gogh had off-days."
"By 1901, Picasso had abandoned realism."
"We can't find the exit."
"This never should have been framed."
"This is one budget cut too many."

March 5, 2018 Update:  The Finalists

March 12, 2018 Update:  I voted for the third caption.

March 24, 2018 Update:  Winning Caption

Note:  Last week, cartoonist Mick Stevens created some prehistoric cave art. My caption was a caption in search of a caption. Take a look back, way back, at Contest #604.
