Caption Contest: Summertime Edition

Caption this image and win a copy of ‘The Realistic Joneses’ by Will Eno!

Every month, American Theatre wants YOUR input. We post up a new cartoon and you, readers, are invited to write a caption to it. This month’s cartoon is above.

The winner will receive a copy of The Realistic Joneses by Will Eno, published by TCG Books.

Winner and finalists will be notified by e-mail. To enter the contest,  leave your captions in the comments below.*

The contest will close on Friday, Sept 11 at 5 pm EST.

*Please note, you can use a number of social media accounts to log in and comment. But please remember that whichever social media account you decide to use should have a working e-mail address attached to it. We don’t want you to miss out on your free book!

*In a modification to an earlier rule about only being able to win the contest once ever (a bit harsh, perhaps), you cannot win two consecutive contests, but you can keep competing after that.

  • Bernard Bygott

    Yeah, well maybe he’s been “too much in the sun” BECAUSE he holds “the mirror up to nature”!

  • Kim H. Carrell

    Should we tell him that the line is actually “Once more unto the BREACH”?

  • I guess he’s warming up.
    If he’s not careful, he’ll be the one saying “Out, damned spot!”

    Heavy is the head that wears the crown.
