Fire the Cartoonist

The New Yorker "Cartoon Caption Contest 168" left a sour taste in my mouth.

My entry was in the ballpark with a "Fantastic Four" reference:
If you think that's "fantastic," you should try one of Johnny Storm's crepe flambes.
Here are the winners:
  • Apparently, even the Fantastic Four can feel the pinch of the recession. - I can't believe that this was the best of the lot that made the F4 connection. Mine was more subtle.

  • Please try not to stare at his disproportionately short right arm. - I actually like this one.

  • The first course has been described as a taste explosion. - comci, comca
