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

CapCon 243’s dentist-patient “selfie” [click on second image above] brought us two first-time winners, and they happened to be the same person. Rich Rodibaugh of North Huntingdon sent in the maximum number of three entries, and the judges determined that two of them were among the best of 123 total submissions. It’s tough for anyone to match that rare accomplishment in CapCon 244, especially if you don’t have the kind of excellent home office illustrated in the cartoon, but give it a try.

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: Sept. 8. Winners receive a PG umbrella, which would be even better at this time of the year if it had something to do with the Steelers.
