  1. For the second picture: “And the race is still on! That horse strike won’t keep these jockeys down.”

    First: “A tsunami, Jack? Next time they say, ‘crazy stuff happens on toll roads’, I’ll believe them”

    Not spectacular, but it was fun trying. 🙂

  2. “All we have to do is come up with fifty lousy cents for the ferry ride. But entrepreneurial options are very limited in this island, and our prospects don’t seem to be changing.”

      • In the New Yorker? Yes, we all have a moment’s notoriety when we see our captions entered.

        I thought you meant that in your blog that it gets added to the next caption just above (or below) the last one.

        Wishful thinking.
