Show caption

OK Gang – I think we really hit the sweet spot with this one. With close to 200 entries, your punchlines ranged from quips about Edward Snowden and the NSA to every possible kind of BP joke as well as a wide array of very clever puns and some seriously twisted humor on all kinds of other bizarre stuff... Wow!

The winner was Riley Hagan III of Baton Rouge with the pop culture reference “selfie/ SHELLFIE” punchline drawn into the toon.

FINALISTS:

• Ricky Birou of Metairie: “It says BP is not responsible for the contents of this shell.”

• Sandra Liles of Baton Rouge with a nice double-joke surprise: “Shellular service is the best, and you don’t have to worry about the NSA listening in.”

• David Rabalais of Port Allen with the wonderfully funny play on words: “What do you mean this call my be used for training porpoises?”

We also had some out of state entries this time including one from California. Very cool indeed.

Thanks to everyone who gave it a try and keep you punchline pens ready for the next caption contest!

Stay ‘tooned – Walt
