Write a Caption, Win a Cartoon

By Michael Cavna

Morning, Cartoon Nation...

So last week, I invited you to offer captions for my "Warped" cartoon, whose caption I've never really been happy with:


(Michael Cavna) Enlarge Comic

From your many clever entries (by comment and e-mail), a handful of Post jurors -- who genuinely laughed aloud, and frequently -- culled the Caption Contest contenders down to three. Now, it's your turn. Vote for your fave:

And with that voting in the works, I also invite you to enter this week's new Caption Contest. Below is a Cavna strip that had such a promising visual, yet the caption and thought balloon added, well, nada.

Feel free to write your own setup box and/or thought balloon (via Comments or e-mail: comicriffs@washpost.com). Win and -- if you want it -- the original art of the "Warped" strip is all yours.

Note: At this rate, given the number of PG-13-rated puns submitted, safe to say the "new" Pinocchio toon would not crack many family funnypages.

Webcomic, perhaps?...

Oops.

Maybe I shouldn't have said "Nonflammable? You bet I'm non-flammable."

I have to agree with Jumper1. When I saw this yesterday the first thing I thought was that it didn't need any captions at all.
