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 special prize to be determined soon.

Kari McEwen



She will receive a framed copy of his cartoon with recognition from Supply Chain Digest and be eligible for our semi-annual prize as voted on by readers.

We had again more than 100 entries thos contest - a surprising number referinving Magic I8 balls - so many we discounted most of those very similar entries.

See other great 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!
