This week's Supply Chain Cartoon Caption Contest



Tom Hammann

General Mills


Tom is a deserving winner this week for submitting not just one but two great captions for this cartoon! He will receive a framed copy of the cartoons and captions with recognition from Supply Chain Digest and be eligible for our semi-annual prize as voted on by readers.

We returned to another huge entry pool for this cartoon, with well over 200 responses to this contest. We received literally dozens with the same basic themes: (1) something about rose-colored glasses; or (2) somethng about supply chain visibility. So, we didn't include too many of these in our "Other Great captions" area.


Many other great 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!

New cartoon on the SCDigest web site on Monday, Nov. 15, 2010.
