Fancy a laugh? Settle for a groan?
You’ve come to the right place. The cartoons you’ll find here are from The New Yorker‘s weekly caption competition. This on-line contest attracts more than 5000 entries per week. It is notoriously difficult to win. Renown American film critic Roger Ebert (1942-2013) famously entered the competition 106 times before finally getting the gong.
The colored word captions at the bottom of each cartoon were composed by SCENIC WRITER’S SHACK.
