My Entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #732

Please don't take me to court over my entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #732 for November 9, 2020. The drawing is by P. C. Vey.

"If it please the court, may I take the defendant home?"

These captions were dismissed as hearsay:

"And what did little Johnny confess to in his sleep?"
"Your Honor, permission to treat the witness as cuddly but hostile?"

November 16, 2020 Update:  The Finalists

November 23, 2020 Update:
  I thought these captions were pretty good. I voted with the Big Apple.

November 30, 2020 Update:
  The Winner



  1. I'm the writer of the second caption, and what is confusing as anything is the fact that I've yet to see it in print, I thought it was going to be either a winner or not in the November 2003 issue and now it's not even in the November 30th shoe. Confusing how the New Yorker rolls out the sequence of these cartoons.
