BY WALT HANDELSMAN | whandelsman@theadvocate.com

New Year, New Baby!

We received 174 entries in this first contest of the year and they were all very clever. It looks like Carnival season really got your creative juices going. As always, we had some duplicate captions sent in and as always we picked the ones we received the earliest. So try to be quick with your terrific ideas… There's a lot of stiff competition out there!

The winner and finalists are:

WINNER:

Chris Evans, Covington (punch line lettered into cartoon)

FINALISTS:

Ronnie Stutes, Baton Rouge: “He's already made his career choice. He plans on going into pastry.”

Dave Delgado, New Orleans: “He's barely a day old and already he's being treated as if he's royalty!”

Mary Dunaway, Clinton: “We heard your delivery was a piece of cake!”

Troy C. Smith, Laplace: “They said he came from a cake. I like that better than the stork story.”

Terry Dantin, Thibodaux: “You know what, your doctor has to buy the next king cake.”

Charlie Twickler, New Orleans: “I've seen some “preemies” in my time but this one takes the CAKE!!!”

Ron Riley, Baton Rouge: “You should meet his mother. She's really sweet.”

Linda Milligan, Gonzales: “You came out of a king cake? What do ya think, that I was born yesterday?”

David Brown, Birmingham, AL: “I think he's in the second line for a diaper change.”

Dennis M. Maciasz, Zachary: “You life is about to get a lot sweeter!”

Great job, everyone!
