“No more delays, Mr. Peterson, it's time for your prostate exam.” (by John Platt)
My original caption: “You're allergic to ice.”
Congratulations once again, John Platt — for the third time, you're one of the funniest people around!
Wow, this was a tough contest to judge. I was expecting a bunch of outstandingly funny captions, figuring your imaginations would really be fired up by the situation of an Eskimo (Inuit) in full dress in a doctor's office. I was positive you could easily top my own rather timid original caption. By the way, nobody even speculated as to whether the patient was a man or a woman.
Two other caption entries I appreciated: “Take two ice cubes and call me in the morning.” (by Cary Antebi) and “Have you considered a low-caribou diet?” (by Kelasher).
So what does it take to inspire you guys? For the next contest I'll try real hard to find a drawing that will stimulate your funnybones.
