Humour is subjective. I think a caption should play on the cartoon detail, not just take a hint from it. Speaking as a cartooner myself that is.

I agree. The last entry was "clever" (not so much funny). The previous 4 entries were not funny at all. My recommendation is to NOT give up your day job to be a comedian (unless you're an unemployed engineer....then it doesn't matter).

I can understand some of my entries were not funny enough, but I do recall other peoples entries being more funny than some of the ones currently on the ballot. How are the ballot finalists picked?
