Walt Handelsman: New Cartoon Caption Contest Winners!

Ask Roger!

We had 276 entries in this week’s caption contest! Obviously, this topic still generates a lot of heat among the devoted members of Who-Dat Nation! Some entries were funny, some were angry, some were quirky, all were creative and hopefully helped you blow off steam. Nice job!

(As always, when we have duplicate entries, we pick the earliest sent in.)

Here are this week’s winner and finalists.


Lawrence Uter, Lafayette: (Punchline lettered into word balloon)


James J. Papia, Metairie: “Before we get started, would you like to wipe the egg off of your face?”

Ronnie Melancon, Gretna: “Mr. Goodell, do you recognize this weapon that killed the dreams of thousands of Saints fans?”

Brother Paul Montero, Baton Rouge: “Was this or was this not sewn into his pocket?”

Vince Caruso, Marrero: “This is Exhibit A, which was NOT at the scene of the crime!”
