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

CapCon 240 was a day at the beach (click on second image above) for a trifecta of first-time contest winners (including a champion all the way from Chicago) which the judges always love to see. Newcomers and past champions alike should now feel free to pour themselves a glass of their finest -- or worst -- wine and try their cleverness with CapCon 241.

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: July 28. Winners receive a PG umbrella, which you can use for sun protection when lying out at the beach -- if you're very, very small.
