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

Submissions for CapCon 242 [click on second image above] featured a swarm of "rat race" references, and the best came from a Washington County resident collecting his third title — and umbrella — of 2014. Let’s see if another veteran or a newcomer does best in CapCon 243, which doubles as a good reminder to schedule your twice-a-year dental visit, if you've forgotten.

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: Aug. 25. Winners receive a PG umbrella — smaller than a Ross Township sinkhole, but still big enough to keep you dry.


Winners of CapCon 242

First Place

The rodent thought it was exclusively a rat race, but alas, it was one of mice and men

Pat Stay, Vestaburg

Second Place

“Hmmm, beady eyes, people scream when they see him, he’s dangerous when cornered, and he jumps from a sinking ship. Me and this CEO have a lot in common!”

Guy Rusiski, North Side

Third Place

“This is ridiculous. You win, you get a six-figure salary and stock options. I win and I get a piece of cheese.”

Bob Muccio, Latrobe
