Big reveal: Our latest cartoon caption contest winner!

When we ran our most recent cartoon caption contest, we promised there would be some fun prizes up for grabs. Well, those prizes are about to be grabbed, because we've selected the winner!

We mulled over the responses you submitted to complete a cartoon drawn by our contributing cartoonist, Dave Blazek, mastermind behind the "Loose Parts" cartoon strip. We whittled them down to the top three that made us laugh the most. Then we polled our team to see which one got the most votes. We had a clear winner. This caption really stuck out as witty, clever, and creative -- just what we were looking for!

The winner of our cartoon caption contest is Chris Kales! We've added his caption into the cartoon. Take a look!


We've already contacted Chris to tell him the good news. This was his reaction when he found out he won:
No Way! About two weeks ago I received the email from Post University regarding this contest, and had way too much fun coming up with the caption. Never imagined winning! Goes to show that just being silly pays off :) Thanks Dave, glad you liked my caption, thank you Post University and …well … thank you work, for being inspirational and ridiculous.

-Chris Kales, Alexandria VA
Being silly does pay off! Congratulations, Chris! We're putting your grand prize together and will be shipping it as soon as it's ready. It will include:
  • An original 8.5" x 11" colored print of the cartoon with your winning caption, autographed by Dave, and suitable for framing
  • An autographed copy of Dave's latest book, "Attack of the Chortling Stomach," a collection of his favorite "Loose Parts" cartoons from the past few years
  • A $25 Amazon gift card
  • And bragging rights!
Thank you to everyone who entered! This is the second time we've run a cartoon caption contest, and they've both generated a lot of buzz on our blog. We hope to do another one soon, so keep your eyes peeled. The competition is heating up. Will you be the next to be named "funniest of them all?"
