The winner of Caption Contest 123 (Leo Cullum's cows watching bull breaking window by red curtain) is
"You should be happy. How many husbands even notice window treatments?"So double congratulations are due to two-time winner Wood, who previously prevailed in Caption Contest 92!
Lawrence Wood (Chicago, IL)
In Caption Contest 125 (Michael Crawford's couple watching TV in bed with four guys in suits), the nominees are
"I liked it better when we just had your people call my people."My loser:

"Next week I pick the fantasy."
Peter Bruland (New York, NY)
"We were cuter 40 years ago."
As for Anti-Caption Contest 126, Dan Radosh is having a tougher week than I am, so the results will have to wait.
