Barnes Maze Edition of the "The Water Maze" Cartoon

Maurice and the Barnes Maze

CAN you write a caption for the Barnes Maze special edition of "The Water Maze" strip? The excellent standard of entries in our previous competitions suggests that many of you can. Here's a new chance for the world to see your wit. As before, it's up to you to provide the caption: please leave your suggestions in the comments thread below. The captions should be as short and snappy as possible, and ideally no more than about 30 characters long per frame. The best contribution will appear in the cartoon here and in the print editions. If you make any erudite jokes or refer to specific papers or behaviors  fell free to - but don't forget to reference and explain for the rest of us!

If you want to see more of these or more originals make sure that you comment here and suggest captions, follow these blogs and and link back to this page from your own blog or site!


  1. Frame 1:
    "Hey little guy, don't look so scared.
    I'll tell you a secret so you'll be prepared.

    Frame 2:
    The holes, they go nowhere, except for a few.
    Find the one with a box I'd begun to chew."

    Frame 3:
    "Finish the job and be free, little man!
    As I watch the good doctor embarrassed by plan!"

  2. 1st: I’ve grown too chubby, but your youth is still there.
    2nd: Search for the holes where you can feel air.
    3rd: But I saw the mice talking! Honest! I swear!
