We award Two Winners: Jennifer Makanoff of Dick's Sporting Goods and Darrel Kuhse of ITT Force Protection Systems; New Cartoon Next Week


Looks like you are enjoying our Supply Chain Cartoon caption contest; We received more than 60 submissions for our second cartoon - most of them again pretty darn good!

We extended this contest a bit given the Holiday slow down. In general, the pattern will a new cartoon one week, the winner the next, a new cartoon the following week, etc. So, two cartoons and two winners per month.

There were many great entries, and the crack SCDigest staff had a tough time picking this week's winner. So much so, in fact, that we are selecting two winners, who each offered funny captions on related themes, as you will find below.

Those winners are Jennifer Makanoff of Dick's Sporting Goods and Darrel Kuhse of ITT Force Protection Systems. You will find their winning entries below. Congratulations!

We have also started a prize for each caption contest winner. The winner(s) will received a framed, highly quality print of their cartoon and caption, with SCDigest and the date of the winning entry noted. We think you will like it!

Below that, we also publish what we felt were the best of the other entries - and there were many good ones.

As in several cases there were very similar entries from different readers, we went with the first one we received.

New cartoon next week! Have an idea for a cartoon? Send in your idea at the Feedback button below.
