Caption This #020: No Laughing Matter


NOTE: This week’s installment of Caption This was not published Wednesday as scheduled. Sorry for the delay.

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 9 episode “No Laughing Matter.” Take a look and hit the comments with your best idea for a caption.

Still from the MASH episode No Laughing Matter.

Check back next Wednesday for another installment of Caption This.
