Steven E. Davies

An honorable mention last week and now this. Next thing I'll be asked is to pee into a cup.

This is the pinnacle of what has been, up until now, a rather pathetic life.

I wish to thank my mother and father for not throwing me into the river at birth.

To my brothers and sisters, Linda, Kathy, Mike, Jim and Matt who helped my feel not so dumb by comparison.

To Sister Marie Henry who taight me to spell, or else.

What could I say about my lovely wife, Brenda, who said to me, "Why can't you put down the toilet seat?!"

And then there are the fine judges who chose my entry the best from all the other wonderful witticisms, the checks are in the mail.

I'm choked up! I know there are far more of you that I should thank but at my age I'm lucky to remember what I had for breakfast. So, I'll just leave it at that.

Thank you all and have a pleasant tomorrow.



I feel the withdrawl symptoms setting in already !!!


The New yorker online also has a caption contest for U.S residents


Thanks Joy !!! I just checked it out, and it looks like fun. Even entered just to see what happens. This could be the start of a new addiction.

I would like to thank Kevin Siers, the Academy, oops...wrong speech.

I was as thrilled to get runner-up as Steven Davies was to win. And Steven and I seem to be of a similar age where simply remembering to submit a caption before the deadline is a major achievement in itself.

The contest has taught me two things:

First, a picture truly is worth a thousand words,

Second, Kevin Siers job is a lot harder than I thought!
