#103- Naming rights


We had visitors in town this weekend, and Brad got me started on reading his New Yorker magazines. I was particularly intrigued by the cartoon caption contest, so I looked into it a bit more online today, and:

I entered in the New Yorker cartoon caption contest.

My submission was “With all due respect, Officer, I must say that my friend Debbie sure has some good pot!”

As I haven’t read very much of their work, I’m not sure the New Yorker will appreciate this humor or find it offensive. The prize is a copy of the cartoon with the caption, signed by the artists who drew it. Here’s hoping.

Fun factor: 7

    I played copycat and entered.
    My entry is the following:

    Officer, I didn’t realize an official escort to the Promise Land would have so many options.

    I didn’t enter the contest ,but here is my caption: “But officer, the person who accosted me looked more like Fonzie.”

    How about this: “Yes, Miss Coughlin, I think the hairy young fellow in the back may be your missing dog, Max.”

    If there is any Karma in the afterworld at all, then Max is sitting at the right hand of Satan, in all his flea-infested glory.

    “But officer, I had no idea, my husband said he was going bowling tonight.”

  7. Loyster says:

    “While the guy with the horns looks oddly familiar, unfortunately Officer, I have to claim the fat, half-naked guy. Come on Stan, you’re free.”

  9. Loyster says:

    Here’s another one……..

    “Yes Officer, they’re all wearing the clothes that were taken from my suitcase. Like I said, I’m on my honeymoon.”

    As you can tell…..I’m very motivated at work this week.
