The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest

I've submitted captions to The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest a couple of times in recent weeks, and now I'm determined to get a caption in the final three. So I think I'm going to start doing weekly posts about the new toon. I can post my caption ideas to get feedback on which one I should submit and you can come up with your own if you want. (And if you do, why not submit them?)

So before reading my first few captions for this week, check out the toon.

"My kingdom for an omelet...."

By the way, in case anyone didn't notice, those are eggs they're sitting on.

The toilets in Heaven could be shaped like eggs? I haven't been there yet, but it's just a thought.

"Look on the bright side. At least we did not have to lay them"

“I liked the March of the Penguins movie too, but this is ridiculous.”

SleekPelt said...

clash: Nice -- I was thinking of a penguin reference, but you beat me to it!

Bad Billy said...

"Man, those Red Bull commercials don't lie..."

The Dalai Mama said...

dm: I'd love for Clash to win this contest!

Clash said...

Thanks. Just messing around. :)

RTN inspires me.

The wings and laying eggs I can handle, but this music reminds me of a bad elevator ride.

SleekPelt said...

josh: Nice.

I have to get my entry in today, and I'm stuck between the duck-duck-goose one and the omelet one. If anyone else sees this today and has an opinion on which I should submit, I'd appreciate it.

Okay, I went with an amended version:

"No, I don't want to play Duck Duck Goose!"
