My Failed New Yorker 6

Scream New YorkerFor the past 6 months I have entered the New Yorker Caption Contest with some close calls, but little success for even a nomination. I consider it to be the perfect weekly challenge to test my mettle for headline writing. 

I refuse to give up, not until I win it all. 

Join me on the frustration and failures as I now feature my weekly submissions and those that beat me. Mark my words–I will not give up. I will pave a public road of mistrials and misfortune, no matter how many, so that one day I will defeat this arch rival: Damn you, NEW YORKER!

Always an Ivory Tickler

 

This week I got a little “New Yorker” with the humor (hey, you’d figure that would work in this contest). It didn’t. But that’s okay thanks to this gem, “And every year they return to my piano to spawn and die.” I literally laughed out loud, L-LOL’d if you will. Let us lock wits soon again, New Yorker!

Though the enraged wolf might make you think otherwise, I understand the choice which got selected as first place by readers: “You’re in trouble when we get to the bicycles.” As for the other two nominations, I feel like it’s one of those things were the gap between first and second is a large one. Somehow I hoped I would fit in that gap, but I guess it just wasn’t my week. Yet, we can all still hope this cartoon was inspired by a true story; life has brought weirder things to our attention before. I’ll get you next week, New Yorker!

I really thought I had it this week, but The New Yorker thought otherwise. Long-drawn-out-siiiiiigh. Next week here I come.

To be honest I’m glad I didn’t get nominated this week. My line sucked, I was in a caption rut, yet submitted the best of my worst. Well done, New Yorker…well done, for now!

After taking a few cold showers, I was brought down from my rage long enough to see the merit of the selections which weren’t mine. The box and receipt line is a priceless modern twist. Great job. As for you New Yorker…until next week.
