New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #8: Entry
mine: "Unfortunately, I must resign as CEO, effective as of Thirty-third Street."
winner: "This is my stop. Phil, you'll be C.E.O. till Sixty-third Street."
I mean, the similarity is just eerie. Must've been those "as"es too densely packed together. I like to think mine makes more narrative sense; why would the organization pass an executive office around like a floor fire safety marshal's blaze orange vest? There's even more comedy gold to mine in local vs. express. Lewis' caption is a winner, but this New Yorker contest is a black box. And don't get me started on "neither the time nor the place, doug!"
Enough with the bellyaching already. On to Week 8.
I go with: "Henry craves the routine. I just worry about overfeeding."
