My Entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #628

Take a long, cold draught of my entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #628 for August 27, 2018. The drawing is by Pia Guerra.

"Sex on the Beach, and no wisecracks."

These captions came up empty:
"Make it Ocean Spray."
"I suppose you think it's funny to serve me Goldfish crackers."
"If I wanted bottled water, I'd ask for it."
"There's nothing funny about a Mickey Finn."
"I never pay for water."

September 3, 2018 Update:  The Finalists

September 10, 2018 Update: I voted for the first caption.

September 17, 2018 Update: Winning Caption

Note:  Last week cartoonist P.C. Vey went way out on a limb—or was it a ledge? My caption wasn't grounded. See Contest #627 and find out what happens when you say you don't care where they seat you.

Let's all toast Pia Guerra in the blog archives.
