The Great 'Non Sequitur' Vote: A D.C. entrant cracks the Final Four

By Michael Cavna


Hearty congratulations go out to Washington Post reader "W. Parham," who's a national finalist in the Great Non Sequitur Sign-Off [Caption] Contest.

Universal Press Syndicate has announced that Parham -- who lists The Post as "hometown newspaper" -- reached the Final Four with the punning caption: "Today's Special: Chopped Sir-loin."

The other three finalists are:
M. Cameron (Austin American Statesman), with the caption: "Entrée: Vous."
K. Lew (Seattle Post-Intelligencer) with the caption: "Homme Cooking."
J. Dorazio (The Times Beaver Newspapers Inc., Penn.) with the caption: "Today's Special! Manwich."

Now it's the readers' turn to pick a winner. Folks can vote HERE for their favorite caption to fill Wiley Miller's sandwich-board sign.

You can vote through Dec. 11 (as in, this Friday -- so don't tarry). The winner will be announced in the "Non Sequitur" cartoon that runs Dec. 21.

And we can't help but note that in our own "Best Comic of the Decade" polling, "Non Sequitur" has been among the leading candidates. So if you're a true-blue "Non Sequitur" supporter and haven't pledged your fandom, please be sure to do this right HERE.

Now, good luck to the entire "Non Sequitur" Final Four -- the entire quartet of captions would be worthy of the comics page.

All 4 are interesting entries. I did NOT enter that, but my favorite of the 4 is "Entrée: Vous". I DID put a question to "Ask Her Maj" on the New Adventures of...- and mine is to be used by Pab this week. I had a cruel brother.

I was a little disappointed that the four entries all played in the same direction of "businessman is (or will be) lunch". I had hoped that with an open signboard, there might be room for multiple joke possibilities. That said, I agree with vidazzle: "Entree: Vous" was a "cut above" the rest.
