Camp Fire of the Vanities

Since I generally gripe so much about it, I have to congratulate the winners The New Yorker Magazine "Cartoon Caption Contest # 154."

My entry linking the idea of camp fires to corporate board rooms was just "okay."
"What's the status of our chocolate and graham cracker merger"
Of the winners, I thought the first two deserving. The third one, not so much.
  • "The first rule of s'mores club is you do not talk about s'mores club." - very good take on what was probably a common theme of those who submitted entrees.

  • "Next, Jenkins, I expect a ghost story. On my desk at 3 P.M. sharp." - not bad, not bad at all.

  • "I think we got some really good ideas from bring-your-child-to-work day." - just fair.

Thanks for your compliment on my winning (well, finalist) entry. I thought several of your entries for the previous contests were very good too.

Good luck!!!

I'm having trouble with this week's the man (or is it a woman?) at the bar wearing a suit and high heels.

I went with "On casual Fridays, I usually go with open-toed." Or "I used to be metrosexual, but now I'm working on a new category." Or "Since you asked, they're ruby red slippers. My name used to be Dorothy." You can also check for some truly imaginative captions.
