Walt Handelsman: New Cartoon Caption Contest Winners!

Cave Phone

We had 398 entries in this week’s caveman caption contest! I always say how creative your entries are and once again these were absolutely fantastic. Take a look at the winner and finalists below and I’m sure you’ll agree!

As always when we have duplicate entries (and we do every time) we pick the earliest sent in and best worded for the cartoon image.
