Adam Zyglis Cartoon Caption Contest: October 2018 winners

We went with a spooky Buffalo themed image for this Halloween season. I was a little frightened to soften the giant response we’ve been getting by going with such an obscure visual, but I could tell there are plenty of Ghostbuster fans out there from all the clever captions.

It’s a little known fact that the art deco building in the Ghostbusters movie was partly inspired by Buffalo’s own City Hall. As a result, many readers referenced quotes from the film, including the gentleman who took first place.

And the winners for October are…

First Place
“Let's show this conjured up confection how we do things downtown.” Brett Glose, Kenmore

Second Place
“And to think, all along, I thought it was the Cheerios I was smelling.” Leslie Gorman, North Tonawanda

Third Place
“Oh look honey, you can see the mist from the Falls!” Luke Baker, Williamsville
