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

CapCon 207 (click on second image above to see the cartoon) reminded us of how some people are just born to write clever captions, though unfortunately for Hank Finck of Pine, it would be a tough way to make a living. After winning CapCon 205 last month, he earned top honors again, beating out more than 75 other competitors having fun with the cave illustration. Everyone should try to come up with something better than good Hank in CapCon 208 now so his head doesn't swell too large for his umbrellas to keep it dry.

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: April 22. Winners receive a PG umbrella, but sorry, there's no tax deduction for it.
