Cartoon Caption/Anti-Caption Contest Coverage Continues

Let's hear it for the candidate from Illinois! The winner of Caption Contest 162 (Robert Mankoff's dogwalker and snake leash) is
"Don't look now, but I believe your snake is strangling that dog."
Samantha Church (Chicago, IL)

In Caption Contest 164 (David Borchart's person storming out of goat-infested house), the nominees are
"Come sweater season, you'll be back."
Travis Gosselin (Chicago, IL)

"You're the one who left your fertility drugs on the counter."
Andy Wehrley (New York, NY)

"Could you bring me back a goat?"
Clif Dickens (Lexington, KY)
My loser:
"Could you check to see if the paper was delivered?"
What I should've submitted:
"I'm sorry if I got your goat."

The winner of Anti-Caption Contest 165 is currently undeclared.
