Caption This #018: Dear Ma


The Caption This game is played every Wednesday at 12PM Eastern. Every week, I’ll post an image from an episode of M*A*S*H and ask readers to provide a caption. This is not a competition, there is no winner, and you can share as many captions as you want.

This week’s image is from the Season 4 episode “Dear Ma.” Take a look and hit the comments with your best idea for a caption.

Still from the MASH episode Dear Ma

Check back next Wednesday for another installment of Caption This.
