“Just ignore him, Bill. Let him pass.”
Every week, The New Yorker magazine has an excellent caption contest. You create an online account, and then you freely go to the link and submit your caption. After about a week, there’s a vote among the top three captions, according to people at the magazine with no sense of humor. Most weeks, the three finalists seem to suck. Very often, the winner is a random thing that has nothing to do with the picture.
Regardless, it’s fun to enter. Give it a shot. You might like it. I’ll attempt to remember to bring you each week’s cartoon for you to write a caption. Click on the picture, and it’ll go to their site.

If you came up with that caption, it’s brilliant!! I can’t come up with anything better than that.
that one is mine, but i’m sure you can make one just as good if not better.
Ok, here is my attempt: What is it with those newfangled headlights?
Thanks! I also wondered about adding…don’t they realize you can’t see a thing behind you ( ha!)
i like “ha!” much better than LOL
so do I…glad to hear you do as well.
Rich, this is actually exceptional. You should win this!
here’s mine – “Larry I told you not to have that third Martini!”
there ya go!
Oh this is grand. Might take you on it…
click the pic – it takes you to the magazine website where you can submit your caption.
Gosh you, freshly pressed and brained for me.
Thank you darling : )
who is freshly pressed? you musta meant someone else.
hmm, did flattery miss you sir?
Define fresh in a still for me? . .
wasn’t sure what you were thanking me for. and yes, flattery flutters by sometimes.
Gathered : )
oh, to get answers from poets!!
That caption is pretty good. Corny, but pretty good.
Hey, have you read much of Jean-Paul Sartre? His vignettes, short stories, or whatever, remind me of your writing. I was just re-reading some of them the other day. Go back to The Wall, The Room, Intimacy, EroStratus and Childhood of A Leader. He only wrote 5 of these vignettes. Read them again and see if you don’t find your work is similar to his.
i have not read his work, but that’s twice today someone mentioned him. now i’ll have to read something.
“I told you to stop at that red-light.”
good one. now go to the new yorker site and submit that. IF you’d like to.
Without the dog on the roof, it’s not the Romneys – but it is the family in the commercial!
i heard something about romney and a dog, but i didn’t hear the whole story. i’ll have to look that up. That commercial annoys me because those kids wouldn’t know that song.
BTW … I followed your format at Abtwixt’s post on Rhetorical Questions.
cool. love those kinds of debates/discussions. on my way.
i should’ve written “stanley, this happens every time you drink and drive.” but it’s probably not popular to make a joke about drinking and driving.
hahaha! I woulda laughed!
Love your caption! Has the New Yorker been visiting my blog?
