how do I thumbs up a caption?
I enjoyed the last caption contest for the readers; but I must say, sometimes these captions of these cartoons are dead-on. this is an excellent example. This right here is my new favorite cartoon caption... K+ #edit 5:19am added k+ for relevance to title

Re: how do I thumbs up a caption?
You can thumbs up the "comment" with the caption, @hewenthatway! Which I just did to yours! 

But fear not, another caption contest will be coming in a few weeks. So you'll have plenty of fresh opportunities.

Dead on
Although obviously poking fun at things, this cartoon is probaly not far from the truth. We just won't be staring at screens - we'll have our Google Glasses on instead.
