Doc Rat Caption Contest




I've talked about Doc Rat before, and I'm going to do it again. The strip had started out as a daily gag comic revolving around Ben Rat, a general practitioner operating a clinic in an Australian anthropomorphic world. More recently, it's been taking on more serious topics, such as miscarriages, predation and the conflicts that arise when predators and prey try to coexist. Jenner himself is a doctor who draws on the side, so the glimpses at the foibles of the patients ring pretty true.



Jenner runs a caption contest, where he draws a single-panel cartoon about every 3 months and invites his readers to submit the punchlines. The winner gets their caption used in the final picture and receives the original artwork. This is the second time I've won, and I really like this one.
