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

CapCon 238 (click on second image to see) hearkened back to a more innocent era in human-deer relations, when the graceful game animal was known for its Bambi-like gentleness, rather than its rapacious appetite for your suburban yard plantings. By and large, CapCon entrants were kind to the ruminant mammals, and the winners proved Shakespeare's axiom that brevity is the soul of wit.

Crank up your wisdom for CapCon 239 and 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: June 30. Winners receive a PG umbrella that does not serve as a deer repellant.
