That cartoon is absolutely hilarious.  And I'd have gone for your cat caption instead, also very funny.  But then again, if I was judge, I'd win nearly every month.

@Wnderer: thanks for the background - and definitely, compliments on your winning caption!

@kfield: thanks, everyone likes reassurance they're not the only one!  In our defense I'd say this one was as much an "inside" joke as "over our heads," but I'm not looking to start a debate.

@kfield: The caption that won honorable mention because it cracked Rich Pell up.

(He really is smarter than the cat." -- Wnderer) Can you explain?

Ah -- when I first saw this, my knee-jerk reaction was "Octo-puss" -- I really didn't think much beyond that.

On these nature programs they often compare octopus intelligence to cats. Here's a quote.

http://www.sciences360.com/index.php/octopus-intelligence-8369/

"However what we know of octopi has led to their intelligence being described by scientists as roughly equivalent to that of a dog or cat."

Here is someone else's joke on the same theme.

So, I'm not too proud to ask: are there to be no hints for us unsophisticated?  The only thing I can come up with is something to do with Schrödinger.

Voice control on test equipment will meen you can probably get away with only three or four hands on your bench.
