My original caption: “Why certainly, my boy, I’ll be glad to share some worldly wisdom with you — if you know what’s good for you, you’ll stop calling me ‘Baldy’.”
Congratulations, Marc Eliot Stein, on this, your fourth victory. The last one was not that long ago, in Contest No. 170. Once again you have proved to be one of the funniest people around, so the bragging rights are all yours.
