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

CapCon 231's Pinocchio-themed poker game (click on second image to view) resulted in nearly 100 people gambling that they had the best caption for it. The judges sorted through a lot of references to noses, bluffs, tells and lies to find the one that scooped our pot. CapCon 232 brings a chance to deliver your own best caption twist of a different sort.

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 24. Winners receive a PG umbrella, in time for the spring we never thought would come.

They were bluffing — it was as plain as the noses on their faces.
