Caption This Toon!

So I wanted to try something different this week…

Above is a ‘toon and today, YOU get to write the caption. Place yours in the comments below. I’ve got the completed ‘toon ready to go for Wednesday morning, so you have several hours to think about it.

Your assignment, should you choose to accept it: Keep it clean, be creative and have fun!

The winner will get a custom 9″ x 12″ pen and ink on bristol drawing featuring two PC Weenies characters of your choice, from yours truly.

Update: It was really tough to choose, so I asked Aarti to help me select the winning entry. The winner is CJ! Congrats – send me an email with the two PCW characters you’d like me to draw for you. Thank you to all the contestants! If you didn’t win, don’t worry – I’m having another Caption Contest tomorrow! Same rules as before – stay ‘tooned!

P.S. This weekend I’ll be in Lexington, Kentucky for the UP! Fair!. Join me, won’t you?

    Well, yes we hired you as a network admin, but I thought that since you were a computer guy you could take care of the IT stuff in your spare time.

    So you see, Bob. Tribal drums begat the pony express, which begat the telegraph, which begat the telephone, which begat the cell phone, which in turn begat the iPhone. That’s why Steve Jobs pays secret homage to Chief Running Gag, bringing him fruit offerings every year, just before his annual announcement gigs!.

    “I’m sorry for my outburst, Bob. I think I mistook whatever you were saying about me having “bad memory” and that my logic makes you “bored”.”

    Fun fun! Love caption contests!

    No, there really isn’t a job available. We get all our consulting for free — just run an ad and ask the applicants how they’d handle a “scenario”.

Tell me what you think!
