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

CapCon 214's hairy bull's-eye (click on second image above to see cartoon) was unusual in drawing three winners whose clever captions carried no quote. A lot of the 180 candidates went in the Target department store direction, and a returning champion from Jeannette put it best among them in the eyes of judges. CapCon 215 should draw just as much interest, whether you're a bus rider or not.

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: July 29. Winners receive a PG umbrella, useful as cover to avoid National Security Agency camera detection.
