CapCon 201 (click on second image to see the cartoon) brought nearly 200 entries, and many of them had some kind of reference to early-bird success. The judges pecked through them to find the one they liked best, which came from a first-time champion who may or may not have risen early to produce his winner. Now it's time to jar our judges by providing some very readable, laughable submissions for CapCon 202, .
Send up to three entries to email@example.com 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: Jan. 28. Winners receive a PG umbrella, important to obtain before the president and Congress place new controls on who can get them.
