Congratulations to Michelle Haimoff, who scores a ninth victory for New York (the third in the past seven contests) and an eighth for New York City with this winner in Caption Contest #61 (doctor taking pulse of giant hand):
"Take three thousand Tylenol and call me in the morning."

In Caption Contest #63 (ungainly, older, naked "discus thrower" in front of two women in living room where plain artwork hangs on the walls), there are no nominees from New York...but there are two from Minneapolis!
"Can you tell it's a knockoff?"
Elizabeth Tillotson (Minneapolis, MN)

"We have company, Henry. Use the good china."
Jay Shuck (Minneapolis, MN)

"He has his life, and I have mine."
George Irizary (Forestville, CA)
If memory serves, my loser had something to do with the guy not being the Greek ideal but having a great retirement package. When I find the exact copy, I'll put it here:

In Anti-Caption Contest #63, the winner is Joe with
"Doesn't this Italian marble statue go well with my neoclassical bacon paintings"
My loser was
"Be patient--he's just warming up. In a minute he'll start spinning it on the tip of his penis!"
