Wouldn’t you know it. After three months off, You Write the Caption has made a strong comeback, with this week’s entry drawing a new record for submissions entered.
Let’s face it, the above photo of Josh Wicks can’t help but inspire the comedy writer in all of us. I must admit to feeling a bit bad about the timing since Wicks isn’t exactly coming off a stellar performance last night (See Morning Ticker). Ah well, that’s life in the pros.
Well, it wasn’t easy picking from the more than 170 entries, but here are the ten entries I thought were the best of the bunch. I will let you, the SBI readers, pick the best caption from five finalists I select.
Now, onto the captions.
Here are the 10 best entries:
