OK. Not my strongest effort. Click on the cartoon to enlarge. And after drawing it I was filled with remorse and dread that the entries would be equally weak. Surprise! Readers rose to the occasion and sent in some pretty funny captions. The numbers were a bit down this week but the quality of the submissions seemed higher than normal. Thanks for saving my butt. It was a tough decision but in the end we had to go with the, ahem, stand-out caption from Jim Holler, a repeat winner. Here are some of the other close contenders: Dale Martin of Lawrence sent "I bet he wouldn’t be so thirsty if they’d allowed beer sales at this show!" From Randy Carriker of Wichita came "It’s a Shocker Kieth Richard still has a pulse!" Also from Wichita, Karen Wallace sent "Wait a minute. Is Mabeline one of the corporate sponsors?" Belle Plaine’s Richard Julius said "He’s just lip syncing!" Runner up Bruce Cole had another good entry with "Hey (hey) Wu (Wu) get out of my seat!" Ruth Allen, from Wichita, submitted "It leaves a bad taste in our mouths too." Roger Neugent of Haysville got pessimistic with "Wu just realized that it the Stones barely filled the stadium, there isn’t a glimmer of hope for football!" Brad Allen made a reference I didn’t get, but someone else clued me in to the fact that this guy’s a DJ: "Boy, Ronnie Taylor has really let himself go." So that’s it for this contest. I’m still wondering if I should choose topics that are more national in scope to see if responses increase. Any thoughts, dear bloggers? (Forget it, Santiago. I’m not drawing about Zionist plots to implant pro-Israel chips in our city council’s skulls.)
