Adam Zyglis Cartoon Caption Contest: December 2018 winners

Readers truly embraced the Christmas spirit this month with the gift of hundreds of great captions. We received over 750 submissions this time around, making for another challenging month for judging.

Captions were heavily holiday oriented, as you would expect. But some readers ventured into political and hunting humor. The most common captions referenced the shooter’s jealousy of Ruldoph in one way or another. The winners nicely created a clever backstory to the image in a way that played off of the expressions of the characters.
