My Entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #651

Gaze longingly upon my entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #651 for the issue of February 18 and 25, 2019. The drawing is by Pia Guerra.
"No, Todd, the irony is not lost on me."

These captions just didn't taste right:
"Look at the bright side. Our insulin went down with the ship."
"The last thing we need is tooth decay."
"I'm content to marvel at nature's wonders."
"That palm tree could be a sling shot…for one of us."
"My biggest regret is never learning to swim."

March 4, 2019 Update:  The Finalists

March 11, 2019 Update:  I voted with Andover, of course. I found the second unappetizing and the third…well, dark.

March18, 2019 Update:  The Winner

Note:  Last week cartoonist Sofia Warren brought a patient wrapped in a boa constrictor into the doctor's office. My caption couldn't charm the snake—or the judges. Squeeze into Contest #650.
