And the winner is…

June 26th, 2013

I’m pleased to announce the winner in my Summer Caption Contest, as named by author and illustrator, Bruce Arant. Bruce tells me there were plenty of great entries to choose from. So many, in fact, he named three runners-up.

Third runner-up: “Come on in, the water is great! What do you mean, you’re afraid? Party like it’s 65 million BC!”
—Jerry Matulka

Second runner-up: “C’mon Rex!  One more dip before that darned asteroid hits!”
—Clayton Anderson

First runner-up:  “Nothing to be scared of… the water’s a bit chilly, but we can always warm up afterwards in the bubbly tar pit Jacuzzi.”
—Victor Hahn

And the winner in the Summer Caption Contest is…drumroll, please…


“Don’t worry, Steve, if it gets too deep you can just dog

The winning entry comes from Brian Bonifant. For winning, Brian will receive the original artwork. Congratulations to Brian and the three runners-up and thank you to everyone who entered!

Summer Caption Contest

June 6th, 2013

What better way to ring in the summer than to hold a cartoon caption contest? Here’s the deal: submit your caption for this cartoon through June 21, 2013, and you could win the original watercolor!Koterba

Remember to keep your punchlines short and sweet. And funny! One submission per entrant. Contest open to all humans on planet Earth. To keep it fair, I won’t be judging. Instead, that duty falls on the shoulders of author and illustrator, Bruce Arant, who just happens to have a beautiful new children’s book coming out later this summer. Email your captions to KoterbaCaptionContest @ gmail dot com (Sorry, you’ll have to retype that address…just avoiding spam) by 11:59 p.m. CST, June 21, 2013. The winner will be announced July 1, 2013. Good luck and have fun!
