The winner of Caption Contest #60 (smiley flag on pirate ship) is
"Aye, and he replaced walking the plank with time out."
Congratulations to Thomas Roth of Atlanta, Georgia!

In Anti-Caption Contest #62 (office scene with man watching woman ride man like a bronco), the winner is Nell S. with
"According to my watch, it's 2002 and Suzy Wetlaufer and Jack Welch just came into my office."
My loser was also reality-based, more or less:
"Late again, Mr. Helprin!"

Walker Robb (Seattle, Washington)

"Just five more seconds and you'll break the record set by Tex and Dolly Rosenberg in Accounting."
Wayne Barr (Merrick, New York)
My thoroughly undeserving loser:
"Looks like motherhood hasn't harmed your performance at all. Good to see you back in the saddle again, Rhoda."
My runner-up was
"Brokeback Office: The Sequel."
