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

Judging by many of the submissions to CapCon 205 (Click on second image to see the cartoon), Americans fear we are living in a surveillance society controlled by Big Brother forces and social engineering schemes. In addition, when many Post-Gazette readers see a cartoon sandwich, they see it filled with chipped-chopped ham.

If imagery of unknown objects lurking in dark doghouses does not unnerve you, please participate in Caption Contest 206. 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 Pittsburgh city neighborhood. Deadline: March 25. Winners receive a PG umbrella that is just somewhat larger than the typical Pittsburgh sandwich.
