We received 180 entries this time and there were so many great punch lines that we’re running a bunch of finalists. Really clever stuff! Looks like bayou humor coupled with Santa Claus is just the gift that keeps on giving. Well done, everyone!
The winner and finalists are:
Rich Wolf, Westminster, Maryland (punch line lettered into cartoon)
Doug Trick, Baton Rouge: “It’s more pleasant navigating Louisiana’s swamps, than that one in D.C.”
Gene Meyers, Mandeville: “Next year we need to get Santa a four-stroke engine for this job!”
Jenna Godeau, Eunice: “I sure hope the big man knows where he’s going, because I don’t know how to pronounce the names on this map.”
Lauren Baronet, Baton Rouge: “Looks like Santa needs to lay off the gumbeaux.
Lackey LaBorde, Metairie: “With hunting season in full swing, I suggest you turn that nose off.”
Lillette Delahaye, Baton Rouge: “This is my favorite place for delivering gifts. They leave us gumbo and cold beer instead of milk and cookies!”
Debbie Bliek, Prairieville: “Aw, Rudolph, you done stuck your nose in dat hot pot of gumbo again, Cher?
Frank Arrigo, Baton Rouge: “He got the idea from the Cajun Navy.”
Cathy Slumber, River Ridge: “Rudolph, I can’t wait to tell commuters about this new route Santa found around Baton Rouge traffic!”
Great job, everyone!
