CapCon 186 brought 125 submissions related to Facebook, Roger Ebert, Fonzie, environmentalism and more, and the judges were happy to crown a first-time champion whose entry tied to the popular social media website stood head and shoulders above them all. Click on second image above to see. That breakthrough should tempt all those who have ever considered the caption vocation, who should now try to describe what's going on around the table in CapCon 187.
Send up to three entries to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to: Caption Contest/Portfolio, Post-Gazette, 34 Blvd. of the Allies, Pittsburgh PA 15222. Please include name and address and identify your municipality or city neighborhood. Deadline: July 2. Winners receive a PG umbrella, potentially even more valuable if it ever decides to rain.
Ultimately, it wasn't Derek's "Like" that did in the tree; it was the 14 comments that his friends posted afterwards.
