You Be the Judge of What’s Funny

Today, The New Yorker published the finalists for this week’s cartoon caption contest…

 

A recent New Yorker caption contest cartoon.

  1. “You call that pushing?”
  2. “It gets easier the second time.”
  3. “Just lean in.”
  4. “May I offer you a clean diaper?”

 

Okay, I’m lying. One of those is the caption I submitted. It wasn’t selected.

I’m sure a bazillion people entered the contest.

Nevertheless, I’m curious… which one do *you* think is funniest? Or funny at all?

    “It gets easier the second time”, because it’s a wretched lie often stated like a truism.
