Caption Contest 199 ... and the winners of 198
Stacy Innerst is the artist. You are the caption writer.
CapCon 198's (click on second image to see the cartoon) menacing villager spurred a lot of Dr. Frankenstein entries, but the judges best liked the references to a trio of others who might also upset the rabble: the NHL commissioner, a high-finance scam artist and a certain local judge. Sweetest of all, our top two entries came from caption-writers who'd never won before. That should inspire newcomers to enter CapCon 199, if it's not too heavy a burden for you.
Send up to three entries to email@example.com 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 city neighborhood. Deadline: Dec. 17. Winners receive a PG umbrella, helpful to maintain your balance if you're on the edge of a fiscal cliff.
