June 17, 2010 – A cartoon caption contest provides opportunity for fun and creativity on an otherwise not always so humorous topic.

Federal Computer Weekly and GovLoop, a social network for the federal employees, joined together in this challenge for their readers to create a caption with a government 2.0 theme for cartoonist, John Klossner’s drawing. The challenge was made in May in their post “How is gov 2.0 like a cowboy in an office?”  where you can also see the cartoon.

The results of the contest were recently released in their post “What a laugh! The results of the FCW cartoon caption contest.”  The winning entry was “I’m stalled at 1.0.”

The results show that there can be humor in what some would deem a dry subject.
