"Let me call you back in an umlaut."It's up against
"Oh, sorry. I forgot about the time difference."by Carol Cason of Dublin, Ohio, and the very special
"The hours here are obscene."submitted by Harry Effron of Briarcliff Manor, New York.
A couple of factors make Effron's entry special, notes Dan Radosh. First, Effron is already a winner of Anti-Caption Contest #53 (couple reading in bed, one a giant bug). Second, Effron was both the submittor of a similar "obscene" entry in Anti-Caption Contest #59 and the person to get credit for it in the caption contest.
My loser? Here it is:
"Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care?"Now let's take a look at the latest winners....
Tim McDaniel of Alta puts Iowa on the map with the winning caption for Contest #57 (man with hand in mounted fish):
"There may be some lingering resentment."And over at Anti-Caption Contest #60 (pirate ship with "Smiley" Roger), the winner is gary with
"Now there are crossbones under our ship's insignia? I shudder to think where this is headed."My loser:
"X doesn't mark the spot of our treasure. X is our treasure. That's why our Jolly Roger is jolly. And that's why the rest of the crew is having an orgy."Caption Contest #61 is here. Anti-Caption Contest #61 is here.
