July Caption Contest

I have no clue what’s happening in this cartoon, as I trusted your creativity and wit to make something of it. Clearly something is happening. Please, contribute something original and funny or insightful or angry. Get silly. Humor me. Get rich. Humor yourself by winning $25 USD!

Please remember to make your submission with your name and email address. The email address won’t show but we’ll use it to send you the money when you win. Which you will.

PS: touch on an insightful topic and I’ll try to do a writeup with the final cartoon. As a matter of fact, I can do a writeup on a not-insightful topic too. I do it all the time!

Frieda Vizel

In between raising her son, racing triathlons and cramming for graduate school, Frieda keeps busy by doodling and writing essays about her transition from Hasidism to life as a woman who charts her own creative path, trials, blessings and all.

  32. To explain the above: See Wikipedia on Menifest Destiny:

    Historian William E. Weeks has noted that three key themes were usually touched upon by advocates of Manifest Destiny:

    1.the virtue of the American people and their institutions;
    2.the mission to spread these institutions, thereby redeeming and remaking the world in the image of the U.S.; and
    3.the destiny under God to do this work

    And see the painting by 19th century artist John Gast: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:American_progress.JPG
