Anti-Caption Contest #202

NOTE: Like many who regularly visit, I was stunned by today's bombshell announcement that Blog Master Dan is going to work as a writer for The Daily Show. This is wonderful news for Daniel and I wish him the best in his new gig, but this also means he will no longer post the Anti-Caption Contest. As a long time participant in the contest this is sobering news. I recognize that the contest has a devoted following so I am going to gamely attempt to post the contest myself and offer my judgment each week. I am beginning with Anti-Caption Contest #202. I will note that this particular cartoon is pretty lame and I was not completely comfortable with the use of the word "box" as reference to, well, you know.

Harry, They are indeed anti-captions. How do I know? They were entered in the Anti-Caption Contest. As far as I'm concerned, if they serve it in a Chinese restruant, it's Chinese food.

(This may seem low-brow but it is a philosophy that has served be well through the years.)

Thanks for your 2 cents, though.
