New Yorker caption contest update

You might remember that a couple of weeks ago I asked about the New Yorker caption contest with the picture of a caveman being pulled over by a police officer.

I asked how many people thought that one of the finalists would have a loke about the wheel being a giant doughnut. Five out of the 16 people who responded said yes, four said no, seven said they hoped it wouldn't.

Well, the finalist captions were announced and they are:
"Yeah, yeah—and I invented the ticket." -- Scott Gerschwer, Redding, Conn.
"I'm going to let you off with a warning, since you have no prior history." -- Chas Kikel, Cleveland Heights, Ohio
"Mind if I look in the hole?" -- Jennifer McLellan, Kansas City, Mo.
For what it's worth, I think Chas from Ohio has both the best caption and the coolest name.

Anyway, I hope that at least seven of you out there are happy with the result.

While I'm at it, I might as well ask about a cartoon in the current issue:

What's the dinosaur doing here?

Its hands are all tied up! It isn't doing anything!
It's helping the woman wind a skein of yarn into a ball.
I don't get it.
Something else, which I will comment about.
