My Entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #722

Get in tune for my entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #722 for the date August 31, 2020. The drawing is by Teresa Burns Parkhurst.
"You're right. It IS too big for the house."

These captions struck the wrong note:

"Maybe a helicopter WASN'T the best way."
"Maybe a catapult WASN'T the best way."
"I've got a bone to pick with those piano movers."
"And we JUST had it tuned."
"Your mother warned you not to marry a musician."
"And that's why we aren't zoned for rooftop entertainment."

September 7, 2020 Update:  The Finalists

September 14, 2020 Update:  I voted with Alexandria. That caption is much funnier than mine with the helicopter or the catapult.

September 21, 2020 Update:  The Winner

Note:  Last week in the Caption Contest, cartoonist P. C. Vey gave us a woman in a sandcastle in a sandbox. My caption was all wet. Grab your pail and shovel and head over to Contest #721.
