Caption Contest News: YOU May Already Be a Winner
With the terribly unscientific balloting looking to be completely on the up-and-up (small favors), Comic Riffs can declare a winner in the first official "Write-Better-Gags-Than-Cavna" Caption Contest.
The Post jurors culled the field to three finalists, and from those (with the balloting ending at midnight Monday), the winning caption -- with 45 percent of the vote -- is:
THE ORIGINAL BEAT GENERATION: "No son of mine is going to art school."
Congratulations, "jessecline." Yours was the winning caption -- and you didn't even have to wage a predawn balloting barrage, haha. You have won the original cartoon art, lettered with your winning caption (or, if you'd prefer, 'Riffs can donate the syndicated strip-art to a charitable cause).
As for the second official "Write-Better-Gags-Than-Cavna" Caption Contest, apparently even I outwrote myself. The consensus from you was that the Pinocchio joke worked best without any supporting dialogue at all. 'Riffs, however, would like to give a shout-out to the entrant who sent along THIS inspired twist:
Now, on to a new round of captionizing. With Valentine's Day around the corner, you're invited to write a caption for this "Warped" cartoon about true puppy love.
Please write your invariably clever captions in the "Comments" field below, or e-mail them to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Godspeed and good luck, o witty Riffians.
