The New Yorker Cartoon Anti-Caption Contest #284

NOTE: Hello Folks. Mrs. Al in LA here. Frist, let me thank you for your patience over the last few weeks. As you know Al is going through a “Boomer Rite of Passage”: caring for an elderly parent. Baptism by fire is more like it.
So, let me make this clear, I have absolutely no qualifications to judge this contest. Therefore there will be no ball busting if I missed some cool obscure reference that Al would have known and rightly placed you on the Honorable Mention list, at least. Not gonna happen here. I am a low brow, fart joke kinda gal. Give me a good pun any day (Good news for you JC). If it made me laugh out loud or garnished a snort then it made the “Mrs. Cut.” This is my “Baptism by fire.
WINNERS


1ST PLACE
"Which came first, the chicken or the yegg? I was gangbanged for crying out loud, I don't remember all the details... Well now that I think of it, I'm pretty sure it was the chicken." Anonymous (THE MRS’ COMMENT: Funny. Once you Google “yegg.”)

2ND PLACE"Crossed the line, crossed the Jordan, cross-dressed, crossed her legs, crossed herself, crossed the road. These IQ tests are a snap." --Anonymous (THE MRS’ COMMENT: Very good.)

3RD PLACE"No. 6 is the legendary Al Capon." Punk Eeb Rooster (THE MRS’ COMMENT: See second paragraph.)

HONORBLE MENTIONS“How can the life of such a birdBe in the palm of some fool's word? To see him obviously framedCouldn't help but make me feel ashamed To live in a land where justice is a game.”
the Hibbing Hotshot (THE MRS’ COMMENT: Okay. Here’s the Dylan cap of the week. Or at least the one I got. Closely followed by…….)


“It would be easier, Officer, if you had each of them put on a Mets uniform . . . especially Number Six” --Terry Collins (THE MRS’ COMMENT: ….the weekly Met jab.)


“The law has finally caught up with the New York Mets pitching staff.” (R.A. Chickie, far right) --Tim H (THE MRS’ COMMENT: You didn’t have to pimp the bit, Tim. I got it and Al sure the shit would of gottin it. But the Mets really blow this season so this and all other Mets referances are considered Low Hanging Fruit for the balance of the year. Nuff said.)


‘Yes, that's Jim Cavanaugh, JohnnyB, Tim H, Kathy H, Anunymouse and al in la. “ JohnnyB (THE MRS’ COMMENT: Truly the Anti-Caps’ Usual Suspects.)


I can't make a positive ID until I see if the cock is circumcised--.Jim Cavanaugh (THE MRS’ COMMENT: Let the puns begin…..)


"It's nun of 'em." --Spredum N. Liftyernutz (THE MRS’ COMMENT:…..and again…..)

"That's him. The one on the right stole my 23 cents. A poultry sum for sure, but it's the principle." Smuck (THE MRS’ COMMENT:…one last time. Thank you. We’ll be in touch.)


Let's see ... Friar Tuck, schmuck, canuck, fucked, un-fucked, dumb cluck ... it's a close call.--Jim Cavanaugh (THE MRS’ COMMENT:XXXXXXXXXXXX)


"I see one I'd like to pluck, one I'd like to fuck, three I'm trying to duck and some poor dumb schmuck." (H/T: J.C.) --Jess (THE MRS’ COMMENT: XXXXXXXXXX)


"And then his pimp is all 'dude, he'll blow you for a shekel', and then I'm all 'silly rabbi, tricks aren't for yids' --Trixie (THE MRS’ COMMENT: What can I say? It’s a boomer thing for kids’ cereal packed with sugar and Red Dye #2. That was good eats in my house.)


“Well, they all had motive enough to cross the road . . . all that is, except Number 6.”--left coast wayne (THE MRS’ COMMENT: I thought he wanted to “get to the other side.”? Wasn’t that the point or the punch as it may be?)


"I like my criminals like I like my chicken: Extra Crispy." Fried N. Convicted (THE MRS’ COMMENT: We’re Regular Recipe folks around here. I can’t remember a time when KFC wasn’t around. Dare I date myself even more and say; I remember when the hamburger count was under 1 million on McDonalds’ billboards (cir 1971). And don’t get me going on Popeye’s vs Church’s Chicken.)


"It seems that alinla has disappeared . . . I want a statement from each of them . . . especially the chicken." --Joe Friday (THE MRS’ COMMENT: I would have gone with the Nun.)


"Then the priest says, 'Let's screw the boy', and the rabbi says, 'Out of what?'" --bada bing! (THE MRS’ COMMENT: Good “old school” kind of cap/joke. Catskills quality!)


Two years ago, guest anti-cap contest judge, alinla, took over for Daniel Radosh, who was hired on by the Daily Show to be funny. If you watch the show, you realize Daniel is struggling, but that's beside the point. A recent article in the LA times said Jack Black's relaunch of Captain Kangaroo (renamed Corporal Koala Bear) hired its head writer...and get this... the name...Al N. Lablonkskirickenbackersteinschmitz. I have a feeling "alinla" is moving on to greener and slightly Australian pastures. I wish him luck and thank him for his unpaid, often entertaining, mispelled judgements. It's nice to know that my unique and amazing sense of humor has resonated so with one man and his awesome wife. Best of luck in your new endeavor. May your deity of choice bless you, alinla. Thank you. --Anonymous (THE MRS’ COMMENT: You misspelled “mispelled”)

Yes, yes, as long as there's no black people, I think I can make a New Yorker cartoon out of this cast of characters.

JohnnyB said...

I made a point of memorizing the thief's nose. I never noticed how similar noses are; it could have been any of these characters.
