New Yorker Cartoon Captions
Every week I enter the New Yorker caption contest by literally describing the cartoon, and will continue to do so until I win. This is that collection.

Literal is the new ironic.
Would be even better applied to the current-events (aka Trump) themed 'daily cartoons' in their daily emails. Or the cartoons by MeFi's Own John Leavitt (which the Conde Nast store has already done to one of them).

These are hilarious. I laughed out loud several times. Good luck!

Your approach works for the clown, less for the already overly ironic cartoons.
