Thank you. I really enjoy the caption contest and Daniel Guidera's artwork. I commend Rich Pell on his sophisticated sense of humor. The cat could never get the hang of the spectrum analyzer. My favorite was the Octopus's Garden lyrics.

So I guess you're saying the other judges (like me) do not have a sophisitcated sense of humor?

Don't worry. Even if you don't have a sophisticated sense of humor, you still have acute appendicitis.

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.

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.

The caption that won honorable mention because it cracked Rich Pell up. Can you explain?
