Captioning skills in the wild

Finally, all the practice you've had coming up with funny captions here at HeroMachine will pay off in the real world! Well, the real world of the funny pages, anyway.

One of my favorite comic strips, "Non-Sequitur" by Wiley Miller, is running a contest for the funniest verbiage to go on the sign in this scene (click for a larger view):


I'm not sure what you win beyond wealth and fame beyond the dreams of avarice, but it seemed like something you all would both enjoy and excel at. So go forth and be witty!

    Very cool, thanks Jeff.
    They’re obviously going to eat the guy, but I can’t think of anything witty, oh well/

    Jeff, your link takes you to a thread, the one I submitted takes you to the actual contest page, in case you want to change it.
    And not that it’s sucha great line, but I’m not going to enter, so feel free to use the hot tub bit.
