Adam Zyglis Cartoon Caption Contest: February 2019 winners

We received lots of love from our readers this month, with captions
coming in steady the last several weeks. Entries were heavy on dating
puns and Valentine one-liners. As expected, the ‘stolen heart’ was the
most common theme among the entries. It was fun to see some readers
took their entries in unexpected directions, playing off of details in
the image.

A few of the winners represented the best in a category of captions.
When several readers submit different versions of the same great
caption, we award the best executed of bunch.
