281 Times

... is the total of attempts that Roger Ebert has filed in the New Yorker Cartoon Caption weekly contest before finally winning.  Geeeezzz!  I entered the 1st one and then followed with an inconsistent 20-25 or so without a bite of even placing among the weekly 3 for the final round.  If it took the much wiser and wittier Mr. Ebert 281 times...  Well, I feel better knowing that and have commenced self-deluding myself that I'm on the cusp.

Some of those "runners up" samples make me wonder if the eds don't choose their winners at random. The monster truck cartoon particularly tickled my funny-bone.
