The winners of The New Yorker's "Cartoon Caption Contest #226" were out of this world (in a bad way).

My attempt was only "okay."
"Don’t worry. We ask everyone if they have a latex allergy."
However, the finalists weren't any better:
  • "I’m going to give you something for your humanity.” - ????

  • “There’s a cure—but it’s light-years away.” - relatively bad

  • “You won't have to drive to this clinic. Just wait in your cornfield.” - corny

The caption I submitted was probably deemed too "lowbrow" by the snobs over at the Eustace Tilley Gazette:

"The bad news is the tumor is HUGE. The good news: it looks delicious."
