Walt Handelsman: New Cartoon Caption Contest Winners!

Irreconcilable Differences!

We had 546 entries in this week’s BIG GAME caption contest! I had a feeling this one would strike a chord with Tiger fans and these were really great! So, enjoy game day, have fun reading these hilarious captions and GEAUX TIGERS!!!

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.

Great job, everyone!!
