New Yorker Anti-Caption Contest #443








WINNERS

FIRST PLACE
"You know, Charlie, this here would make one hell of a good cartoon. No caption needed: the irony of the image speaks for itself. And with a couple of us blue collar workers standing here in the foreground, watching the destruction of a cultural touchstone for the working class, it becomes a profound commentary on the death of shared social spaces in America and on our growing cultural isolation. Jeez, it's just too bad I had to open my fuckin' mouth and ruin the moment, ain't it?"-- Evan (JUDGE'S COMENT: This cartoon needs no caption. Yeah...that's it!! It's a touchstone or some kind of isolation thing. Know what? I agree. And in that spirt, and mindful that I have a bushel of unjudged contests, this cap is hereby named the sole and exclusive winner of this contest.)

This is so meta, Bob. It really makes you think all philosophically and stuff, which is crazy because we're just simple working folk.

Use whatever metaphor you want, just knock it down.
