Stacy Innerst is the artist. You are the caption writer.

The NFL's replacement referees gave Americans something to rally around in these fractious times. And the players of the PG Caption Contest (click on second image to see the cartoon) largely saw Stacy's drawing as further reason to belittle the replacers (though at least two contestants imagined the guy as a displaced employee of Foot Locker).

Please digest CapCon 195 and send up to three entries to 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: Oct. 22. Winners will receive a PG umbrella sometime after the presidential election but before the collapse of civilization predicted by Mayan calendar.

Dissatisfied with the performance of asses as NFL substitute referees, the NFL next experimented with zebras.

You can't fool zebras -- they know a replacement when they see one.

Leo Impavido, Forest Hills

Third Place

Fred found the circus was no more welcoming than the NFL had been.
