The New Yorker Cartoon Anti-Caption Contest #318 (oops! Forgot #318)

WINNERS
FIRST PLACE
Ohhhh her - ??? New hire named "Penny" - she's purported an expert at predicting downtrends---.Blonde (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Many people mistakenly believe that it was Chicken Little who said the sky is falling. This cap is slightly impressive because it accurately credits Henny Penny. Even so, Penny was, of course, wrong, so why would anyone hire her for her forecasting skills?)

SECOND PLACE
Sorry, Jim, Miss Prissy complained about your constant "crossing the road jokes." I'm going to have to fire you for seggsual harassment.--JohnnyB (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Eggactly the type of cheap laugh you expect from the Anti Cap's answer to Shecky Greene. Nicely done, sir.)

THIRD PLACE
"Say what you will, but that chicken just won a Pulletzer Prize." --Kathy H (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Ironically it was for investigative reporting. Happens in newspapers all the time.)

HONORABLE MENTIONS
Caution! Greek Orthodox Archbishop crossing --Satireguy (JUDGE'S COMMENT: This seems to be a reference to the ridiculously big hats they wear--how else to explain it?)

"He says, he says he's not ready for the presentation, but he'll wing it. That's a joke, son."--Damon (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Yosemite Sam was a redneck asshole. There is at least one in every work place. This reminds us of that.)

"Ahhh, it's just Belichick stealing our algorithms." --Anonymous (JUDGE'S COMMENT: This suggests that the New England Patriots coach and admited cheater, Bill Belichick, is a coward. I like it.)

"Isosceles! You crazy bastard. How are you?" --Sammie (JUDGE'S COMMENT: A classic nod. No time to Google this. No doubt it makes sense to someone. )

The hours here are scalene.--Jim Cavanaugh (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Another classic but I don't get this one either.).

"Fea-thery, you crazy baster! How are you?"-- Sarah (JUDGE'S COMMENT: I was thinking "Cacciatore you crazy bastard..." )

Enter Password: canthony666Repeat Password: ...........Remove Bra: (o)(o) --Anonymous (JUDGE'S COMMENT: More office hijinks. The paper trail would be an issue for HR. )
Even my slaveish (sic) devotion to this contest won't get me to bother with a dead link graphic. Nuff said. --Glenn (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Yes Glenn, I misspelled a word, thanks for rubbing my nose in it. )

They finally found al folded like a pretzel in her cloaca. --boneguy (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Who exactly was in the search party? And what made them look in the exact place they knew I would be?)

I don't like it either, but al gave you ample warning."--Jim Cavanaugh (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Countless memos were sent explaining to these people that they were going to replaced with chickens. This has happened at many mid-sized newspapers. )

Nervous anti-cappers wait to see if al can run a post pattern two weeks in a row.....--Anonymous (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Done. )

"Curiouser and curiouser. First there was the interminable wait for contest results. Then the no-show of the chalk outline guy. Then the brief appearance of the chicken in a cubicle in a wrongly-numbered contest. Now this. Is it the first sign of the apocalypse? Were the Mayans right?? Is there a fatal disconnect in the time-space continuum??? Might a Republican candidate win???? Will it all end with an exclamation point????? What's it all mean, al? You have the answers. Tell us before we all die . . ."---blw (JUDGE'S COMMENT: The multiple question marks tip-off the obvious: I am being mocked yet again.)

Al is not dead, he's in recovery.--JohnnyB (JUDGE'S COMMENT: Actually, I'm in denial.)

Elaine: Yes, er, yes I did.

Lippman: And, anyway I was just reading your final edit, um, there seems to be an inordinate number of exclamation points.

Elaine: Well, I felt that the writing lacked certain emotion and intensity.

Lippman: Oh, "It was damp and chilly afternoon, so I decided to put on my sweatshirt!"

Elaine: Right, well...

Lippman: You put exclamation point after sweatshirt?

Elaine: That's that's correct, I-I felt that the character doesn't like to be ch-ch-chilly...

Lippman: I see, "I pulled the lever on the machine, but the Clark bar didn't come out!" Exclamation point?
