Open Source Humor

Ever since I learned to read, I enjoyed cartoons that came each week in my father’s New Yorker. I have since come to appreciate the longer pieces but still marvel at the editorial efficiency of the one line caption. It’s a real art form.

Recently, the magazine has opened up the art of the caption to its readers (and the world at large) in the Cartoon Caption Contest.

As a recent homeowner, one of this week’s caption finalists had me giggling to myself for several minutes. The cartoon above still awaits your submission. What will it be? Mine?

I’d stay away from the martinis. They make them a bit stiff for my liking.
