Supply Chain Cartoon Caption Contest

- June 23, 2011 -
Supply Chain Cartoon Caption Winners for June 6, 2011 Contest


Russ Thorne of Cargill and Brian Haden of IT Tralee (Ireland) Take Home the Honors

Week:  June 6, 2011 Contest

This Weeks' Winners!



Russ Thorne
Cargill, Inc.

(Noteworthy Shout Out to Eli Goldratt's "The Goal")


Brian Hayden
IT Tralee, Ireland

(Our First Two-Time Winner)


Each winner will receive a nice framed picture of the cartoon with their winning entry and acknowledgement from SCDigest.

Every six months, SCDigest readers will vote on the best cartoon for that period among the bi-monthly winners, and that person will win a $50.00 AMEX Gift Card

This week's
Supply Chain Cartoon Caption Contest Winners:


Russ Thorne

Cargill, Inc.

Brian Hayden

IT Tralee, Ireland


Both will all receive a framed copy of their cartoons and caption with recognition from Supply Chain Digest and be eligible for our semi-annual prize as voted on by readers.

We had over 200 submissions for this contest, which we think was perhaps the most challenging one yet. Thank you!

Both entries were noteworthy. Thorne's entry references Dr. Eli Goldratt's seminal book
"The Goal," which introduces the Theory of Constraints concept, and in which plant manager Alex Rogo takes a six pack and some pizza to a hill to ponder his troubles. Very witty!

Brian Hayden we are pretty sure has become our contest's first two-time winner!


Many other great entries! See other especially funny captions below.

Didn't make it? Don't despair - we just have far too many entries to post them all. But you will make it soon!

New cartoon on the SCDigest web site on Monday June 27, 2011.
