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

CapCon 234 proved that sex sells in caption contests (click on second image), like in everything else. The bathtub image similar to what's seen in Cialis commercials drew in 113 people who provided 229 entries, and the judges had fun sorting through many that played off of erectile dysfunction advertising, including the two top winners. We're hoping for similar response to the CapCon 235 illustration, for those willing to gamble on how clever they are.

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: May 5. Winners receive a PG umbrella, and we will also try to arrange for you to be keynote speaker at the 2016 Democratic National Convention if it comes to Pittsburgh.
