And now, on to the contests!
The winner of Caption Contest #58 (couple in maze of cubicles) is Noel Armstrong of Maple Shade, New Jersey, with
"Sooner or later, you're going to have to learn your way to the bathroom yourself."So New Jersey catches up with Massachusetts in a tie for fourth place, with four victories apiece. (Or maybe it should be four victories astate.)
In Caption Contest #60 (pirate ship with Smiley Roger flag), the three contenders are
"I'd mutiny, but I'm having such a nice day."My loser? I actually not sure--my records are a little vague. But it might have been this:
Dallas Schrems (Norman, Oklahoma)
"Aye, and he replaced walking the plank with time out."
Thomas Roth (Atlanta, Georgia)
"No, we don't get much booty, but we meet a lot of nice people."
John Cassidy (Westbury, New York)
"'Queer Eye' taught me that a stern doesn't have to look stern."Caption Contest #62 is here. Anti-Caption Contest #62 is here.
