Earlier this fall, New Yorker cartoonist, Liza Donnelly,  drew a fantastic and fun cartoon for this blog. We had a contest for readers to submit a winning caption. I am pleased to say that we had over 240 entries!

Judges  Liza Donnelly and Michael Maslin, New Yorker cartoonists  picked the following finalists and the winner:

I know. I can never find the cinnamon when I want it, either.

When I said I liked ginger, I meant the terrier next door.

All those jars and nothing to make it taste like the trash?

Don’t look at me. I’m not climbing up there again.

You buy one more spice and I’m calling Spices Anonymous on you!

And here is what they had to say about the process of picking the winner:

“It was a difficult decision choosing the winner, particularly among the finalists.  We chose this one because of how it went with the drawing–specifically how the words work with the facial expressions of the two characters. Her worried look, the dog’s deadpan delivery.  It brings to mind the humor of the dog actually using a spice.  Also–and this is Liza speaking– I can relate to this, as many can: I can never find the cinnamon.”

So the winner is BARB!!  Many congrats and here is your caption on the cartoon:

Barb – Please email me your address so we can get you Liza’s fantastic book!

I really want to thank Liza for doing this! It has been such a fun experience and many thanks to all Life of Spice readers for participating.

Liza’s book is really fun and I hope you will order it. I think it is a great stocking stuffer for the holidays!
