I call foul!

I am convinced there is no way to actually be chosen for the New Yorker cartoon caption contest.  I am also convinced that they do not weed through all submissions. 

OR perhaps everyone else cheats. 

Drawing by Michael Crawford
Contest #161, September 22, 2008

“So why did you leave Red Lobster?”
Submitted by Paul Vogel
Arlington, Va.

“I guess we have a deal, but we don’t have to shake on it.”
Submitted by Candace Klomann
Tucson, Ariz.

“So you think you’re ready for the corner tank?”
Submitted by Meghan Dowd
Somerville, Mass.

And MY caption:

“No, there’s nothing in this statute about drawn butter- unless you’re referring to the lobster clause.”

  1. HA! you win, of course!

  2. Now really, are you calling “fowl” or are you calling “crustacean”? Just asking….

  3. Dear Ms. Stephenson,

    We regret to inform you that you are not, in fact, as clever as you think you are.

  4. Dear Ms. Stephenson,
    To clarify, you may not be as clever as you think YOU are, but your friend, Miss Conner, is. In fact.
    If only you would let her compose all your blog posts…

    Till then,
    The New Yorker
