Last Week’s Winner

The winner for last week’s contest is Nat Geo member Cormac McCarthy, who wrote:

“Hold me back guys; I'm feeling curious.”

The runners-up were:

Kwang Meng Tan: “You sure the guy understood correctly when you asked for a Big Gulp?”

Mark Cooper: It was only after the grouper showed up that the kittens understood that they may have overestimated their position in the food chain.

Whitney Kopp: Dream big.

There were also a lot of variants on the famous “You’re gonna need a bigger boat” line from Jaws, and many, many grouper puns.
