Wait! We can salvage this dumb cartoon!

Yesterday I wrote some unkind things about Sean Delonas’s New York Post editorial cartoon. Instead off dwelling on the negative (ie., the cartoon is shallow and unfunny, and could be misinterpreted as outrageously racist), I should have looked for a way to make something constructive out of the situation. After all, the only thing wrong with the cartoon was the caption. Hmm…

In the tradition of caption writing contests everywhere, let’s try to make the dead chimp cartoon funny. A few of my ideas are below. If you can do better (and yes, you can), take your best shot and write it in the comments.
