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

CapCon 222's talk show cowboy (click on second image above to see cartoon) drew a lot of references to both Conan O'Brien and stars gone by from old westerns. The contest judges, since they're from Pittsburgh, ended up going with a football-related entry, naturally. We'd love as many entries as possible for CapCon 223 -- everyone loves a good snake joke, after all.

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: Nov. 18. Winners receive a PG umbrella, expected to last at least throughout the remainder of the Ravenstahl administration.
