As always, judging the February 2017 cartoon caption competition was less than easy. And, as always, the EE Times Elves moaned and groaned about having too much to do and too little time to do it all in. Finally, after much gnashing of teeth and rending of garb, the annoying little scamps finally came to a consensus.
The winning entry, by EE Time Community Member rxx12345, was "After an extensive search, Cupid successfully bags a well-equipped man for his client."
"After an extensive search, Cupid successfully bags a well-equipped man for his client."
And the runners up -- in no particular order (the EE Times Elves aren't very good at "order") -- were as follows:
SteveC210:"Cupid's arrow struck at the heart of Dave's love and passion for scoping Lissa Jous figures."
pabaines:"People said he was crazy but, with the help of hypnotic regression and hallucinogenic fungi, Bob felt close to identifying the single event that would mark the beginning of the war against the machines."
dt_hayden:"Bart's untimely gas passing throws off Cupid's windage compensation."
TFCSD:"Having several PhDs in engineering that deflected anything social, he looked upon Techno-Cupid's futile attempt with a confident sense of ennui, contempt, and sadness that he was in no danger."
nonickname_#3:"Wally's garlic breath once again proves to be a super effective love repellent."
BrainiacV:"Bob thought being an engineer would Cupid-proof his lab, but dang if one didn't sneak in."
Only after missing his intended target and creating an unnatural attraction between the spectrum analyzer and Harold did Cupid come to accept the inevitability that he needed glasses. Harold, on the other hand, was thrilled to have his unrequited love, or objectophilia, for his instrument returned.
Although he so dislikes shooting through the engineer's back, Cupid was finding more and more that his skilled bank shot off CRT instrument screens was no longer possible with the change over to LCD display panels.
