A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, hundreds of you responded enthusiastically/passionately/snark-humorously to Comic Riffs’s first Valentine’s Day Reader Caption Contest. So as V-Day 2013 rolls around, we couldn’t help but ask: Why not do it again?
Fortunately, syndicated Carolyn Hax artist Nick Galifianakis — aka "the relationship cartoonist" — was up for an encore performance. (Nick, of course, is the author of the deeply funny book "If You Loved Me, You'd Think This Was Cute: Uncomfortably True Cartoons About You" — with swell preface by Hax; hilarious foreword by cousin Zach Galifianakis.)
So in the spirit of the day, Comic Riffs introduces our second Nick Galifianakis Reader Caption Contest.
Nick drew the original illustration at the top of this blogpost. Write the winning caption and you'll receive a signed print of the cartoon from Nick himself!
So to enter, there are merely two simple steps:
1. Leave your suggested captions in the Comments below (till 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17) or e-mail them to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Then check back here later this month to see a gallery of the finalists — and Nick's pick for the best.
Good luck — and happy captioning!
