Strata: Cartoon Caption Contest

“Oh, and would you mind loaning me your lipstick, too?”

—Wayne I. Myers, Palm Springs, California

Thank you to all those who submitted caption entries for our May/June 2015 cartoon (above), based on Matthew 7:6:

“Do not give what is holy to dogs; and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under foot and turn and maul you.”

We are pleased to congratulate Wayne I. Myers of Palm Springs, California, who wrote the winning caption, and our runners-up:

“But they didn’t say not to hand us pearls—just don’t THROW them!”

—Steve Dalzell, Washington, DC

“Actually, it’s more of a metaphor. I don’t think you really need to throw them at me.”

—David Palmer, Higganum, Connecticut
