Nice one, ril.

Unchosen captions:


...which clearly shows, writers prefer to snicker at others' work than improve their own... --anon.

I got these swatches from Home Depot. So which colors work best for the reprints? --anon.

And so, fellow publishers, it's obvious: Orange books have the lowest sales of all.--anon.

No, DeVecchio, this is not the size of boner the book gives you. Anybody NOT in Marketing want to try?--anon.

I wrote this line thinking I was a no-hoper — but look at me now.--WO

I don't get it.

Evil Editor said...

You don't get the chosen one? I guess they don't have Depends where you live. They're adult diapers for the incontinent. You know, how people are always laughing so much they pee? Get it?

Phoenix said...

Oh my. That was a bit of a stretch. I know about Depends (not personally), but I wasn't getting it either. Then again, I'm in a very boring meeting right now that's sapping some of my attention (and very likely brain cells).

Reminds me of the old joke (no pun intended) about Ronald Reagan, who was pretty old when he was in his second term.

Reporter: "Mister President, people want to know more about you. What kind of underwear do you wear? Boxers or briefs?"

Reagan: "Well... Depends."

Evil Editor said...

Oh my. That was a bit of a stretch.

The problem is that everyone who spews coffee all over the place brags about it in a comment, while everyone who loses control of their bladder informs EE in a private email. Trust me, as many office chairs are ruined here as keyboards.

Kiersten said...

I guess I didn't get it, either. I was thinking the Depends line was referring to the advanced age of EE's cartoon alter ego.

I like the first unchosen one...of course, this is coming from the girl who clearly spends WAY too much time on this site.

BuffySquirrel said...

Thanks, EE. I get it now :).

I thought it was something to do with the homeland security scale.

Scott from Oregon said...

I look after a mum who wears Depends and laughs wetly often.

SO I got it.

Oh and, for those who need to understand about laughter and incontinence knickers, this video is a great example of both--

Perhaps you could market your own brand along with the T shirts and mugs.

I'd wear 'em — maybe even over my trousers as a badge of pride.

Sorry, I didn't get the "laugh til ya pee yer Depends" either, so it's good to find EE's explanation. Although one time I did laugh so hard (I think it was the Su-per-bus/dinobus blue comments)I wet my panties and I didn't have any clean ones and I didn't have any Tide, so I had to finish the day Commando!!! I know, TMI.

I laughed. However, I am concerned with the graphics. It would appear that ND 3 has had fewer sales than 1 and 2 before it. I recommend firing the sales force.

Evil Editor said...

Henceforth when submitting cartoon captions, please include a detailed explanation of why it's funny, which I will post with the cartoon.

Pacatrue said...

Can I submit an explanation of why the explanations of cartoon captions are funny?

Robin S. said...

Wow. I really miss a lot on here in the daytime. I really miss it so much.

Love the caption, now that I get it- and ashamed to admit I didn't get it at first. Somehow, I feel compelled to be honest.

talpianna said...

EE, do we quote Freud's "On Wit and Humor" in the original German?

ril said...

So I logged on this morning, saw my caption there, and saw 18 comments! Wow, they must really have loved it!

Right.

Oh reality, how thou hast scorned me.

I return to the shadows to contemplate my fate...

McKoala said...

Ril, I loved this! One of the best so far.
