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?

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
