Our challenge to you is to compose a capriciously cunning caption for this cartoon -- one that makes us laugh so hard that, if we were drinking glasses of milk, it would come out of our noses. Oh, and try to make your caption engineering-related.
The winner -- as judged by the EE Times elves -- will receive the EE Times-equivalent of a Nobel Prize -- a copy of the original cartoon, adorned with his or her caption, signed by the illustrator.
