I know we're funnier than this

Here is the link to the three finalists for last week's New Yorker cartoon contest...and they're not funny.

Shall we enter this week's contest? I'll create an account under the name of Lem Levit and put up our funniest one. Got game?

"Allow your new solar-powered washer to charge for approximately 7 months in full sunlight between uses..."

"For optimum results, distribute wet clothing evenly on south-facing surface of appliance. Turn frequently to speed drying."

I want to kill myself.

chickelit said...

"Dry humor"

Eric the Fruit Bat said...

"Seems it won't work unless it's connected to stuff."

chickelit said...

Solar, solar, every where,
And all the clothes did stink;
Power, power, every where,
Nor any cords to link.

I know we needed water from the trader, but he gave us 15% off if we bought this today.

Paddy O said...

Turns out it will only fit one of us.

Paddy O said...

We had to buy it, otherwise we'd pay a penalty to the IRS.

Paddy O said...

It's free range.

bagoh20 said...

Right! The washing machine has been broken for months, but now that you started reading that "Fifty Shades of Gray", suddenly you need it fixed.

bagoh20 said...

I see sex in everything. It's a gift and a curse.

Paddy O said...

Your time machine looks great Tom, but how do we get it to 77mph?

lemondog said...

While waiting in line, catch up on some reading.

Does this take quarters?

Where is the dryer?

Bleach?

BTW, I thought 'the working from home' was a pretty good caption.

Calypso Facto said...

It says to add "bleach", with an "L", you moron.

Sixty Grit said...

You're a guy in the New Yorker, therefore I know you can't read, so I'll read this to you. It says "Vote for Hillary!" Now do as you are told, drone!

"As soon as I take this crap off, I'm going to take one of the neighbor's dogs to the dog park."

deborah said...

"Maybe the Sand People will know."

(You're right, lemon, I didn't get it last night!)

(Allen, we're working on the second link :)

Great job, guys!

deborah said...

BAT! Where the hell have you been?

Known Unknown said...

"It only has one setting - agitate."

Paddy O said...

Well, it better be really high efficiency.

Paddy O said...

This one has a bad motivator.

Paddy O said...

Both of Bagoh's comments would work.

deborah said...

lol Paddy.

Chip Ahoy said...

We're in trouble, Hon, the instructions are in Spanish.

chickelit said...

Patrick O said...
Both of Bagoh's comments would work.

bagoh20's captions may be funnier, but my last one was literary, dammit! That stuff flies at "The New Yorker."

Matt said...

"These 'Humane Borders' water stations are getting ridiculous!"

William said...

The handicapper said I had to carry this weight for the next race.

Calypso Facto said...

"I STILL don't think it'll count as dry cleaning"

Eric the Fruit Bat said...

BAT! Where the hell have you been?

I've been pressed for time of late.

I hope all is going well for you, deborah, and the same goes for everyone else here.

Best regards.

AllenS said...

Hillary's new book will be called "Hard Choices". It should have been "I Have A Headache."

Chip S. said...

"Just what I told you: The model 6320W is not recommended for desert use.

But did you listen?"

bagoh20 said...

As the wife reads "Hard Choices", she thinks to herself how closely it describes her own dilemma, and makes up her mind to tell her husband about the affair with the Maytag - a lover that never leaves a dirty dress behind.

You know you're right. I can't see your kindle. Hmmmmm.

Thanks everyone...love it!

Check on Monday to see if Lem Levit is a finalist.

chickelit said...

Which caption are you going to submit?

deborah said...

"It's free range."

I put a heavy emphasis on your notion that this is the New Yorker :)
