Adam Zyglis Cartoon Caption Contest: September 2018 winners

Our Caption Contest remained a hot item with readers this month, bringing in nearly 700 entries. The Wing Fest themed captions were full of flavor, and it was great fun to sink my teeth into all the emails and letters. The winners this month put their best foot forward, impressing the judges with their wit.

Among the popular captions this time around were “Revenge of the Birds” and “We’re gonna need a bigger fryer.” There were also several who played off of ‘coming home to roost’ (with the best variation making the cut for third place).

And the winners for September are…

First Place
“Drew was supposed to order the non-GMO chickens.” – Jim Prosser, Clarence

Second Place
“Winner! Winner! Chicken’s Dinner!” – Joseph Sorokes, Olean

Third Place
"The day the chickens came home to roost" – Paul Ipolito, Rochester
