Cartoon Caption/Anti-Caption Contest Continues!

The winner of Caption Contest 197 (Drew Dernavich's plane with stiletto landing gear) is
"She's a lover, not a fighter."
Robert McLean (Tampa, FL)

The nominees in Caption Contest 199 (Michael Crawford's snorkeler in court) are
“You think Alcatraz can hold me?”
Joshua Rosales (Rosemead, CA)

"Go ahead, waterboard me."
Lester Craft, Jr. (Basalt, CO)

“Well, the menu did say ‘Choose your own lobster.’”
Donna Palmer (Chattanooga, TN)
My loser:
"What makes you think I was doing something fishy?"

The winner of Anti-Caption Contest 200 (Ethan Kanin's Satan in God's reception room) is
"Yes, we can schedule a session for you same time next Tuesday Mr. Johnson. To be honest, you don't even have to ask anymore. As sexual role-playing businesses go, this has turned out to be a much more limited market than we anticipated. Don't forget to leave your suit to be dry-cleaned."

Cartoon Caption Contest 201 is here. Anti-Caption Contest 200 is here.
