My Entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #618

Go ahead. Horn in on my entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest for May 28, 2018. The drawing is by Kaamran Hafeez.

"It turns out they weren't extinct—yet."

These captions simply weren't believable:

"Some days you just hate yourself."
"I really thought my daughter would be delighted."
"Who knew my hunting license wasn't valid?"

June 11, 2018 Update:  The Finalists

June 18, 2018 Update:  I voted for the first caption, but I do note the third's similarity to my own entry.

June 25, 2018 Update: Winning Caption

Note:  Last week cartoonist John Klossner had us virtually burning in hell on an old TV screen. My caption got poor reception. Tune in to Contest #617.

Kaamran Hafeez's appearances on the blog are the stuff of myth. Or is it legend?
