New Yorker cartoon quiz

I noticed this cartoon (by P.C. Vey) in the current New Yorker:



and I thought the caption was too long, so:

Which of the following do you think is the funniest caption for this cartoon?

"If they don’t like our proposal I’ll show them the kittens."
10(43.5%)
"Everybody likes kittens."
3(13.0%)
"If they don’t like our proposal I’ll show them the kittens. Everybody likes kittens."
3(13.0%)
They're all reasonably funny.
1(4.3%)
They all suck.
2(8.7%)


Edit: To be clear, the third option is the caption actually used.

I have a show a week from tomorrow, so I'm hoping it will have come in enough by then to look acceptable.

Sock!

Inspired by cgoldfish, and using some of the same yarn she used for her socks, I made this, finished a few minutes ago:

The other sock will not match, exactly, because I don't think I have enough green yarn, but you'll see how it works out ...

This is not quite the first sock I've made, since I made a pair of giant Doctor Who socks for plorkwort a couple of years ago, but it's kind of exciting anyway. It seems to fit, which is nice.

A couple of my friends have mentioned that they don't really understand the kitchener stitch. I use these instructions, which I think are pretty good (although I think the first time I used them I had to go back and forth a lot to figure them out, but that's par for the course for me). The 'This is what you should have ...' steps were unfortunately not that helpful to me, because I wasn't sure what I was looking at, but I figured it out anyway.
