Walt Handelsman: New Cartoon Caption Contest Winners!

Rough Year!

We received 205 entries this time. Snarky, biting, quirky, hilarious, and just plain strange. These were great!

It’s hard to pick a winner and handful of finalists when there are so many quality entries. If you haven’t been picked yet and you keep sending in punch lines, please don’t give up and know that we’re really enjoying your entries!

The winner and finalists are:


Mary Oneal, Lacombe  (punch line lettered into cartoon)


Robert Lakey, Metairie: “The people just don’t appreciate how hard we fight to keep each other from accomplishing anything.”

Sydney Hamilton, Baton Rouge: “And the hits just keep on coming!”

Timothy P. Clements, Chalmette: “I can’t remember which injuries are from you and which are self inflicted.”

Johnny Atkinson , Baton Rouge: “It’s been a year and my injuries have gotten worse!”

Don Perschall, River Ridge: “Now where would we be without our skills to negotiate and compromise???”

Gil Dupré, Baton Rouge: “Good thing you guys didn’t repeal Obamacare.  We’re both going to need it!”

Fred Reynolds, Kenner: “See what happens when you are a party animal.”

Rob Huffman, Fredericksburg, VA: “Agreed. That was a robust debate.”

Harold Turner Jr, Baton Rouge: “Looks like you’ve had some contact with Bob Mueller too.”

Great job, everyone!
