Caption Contest - December 2017 - Results

The December caption contest featured a cartoon showing the offices of "Acme Stock Brokerage" with several brokers sitting by their workstations – one is dressed in ragged clothes and throwing darts at a screen with labels like "up", "really up", "down", "really down", etc...

The winning caption for the December contest was “Beggars can’t be choosers if they pick at random,” written by Larry Lesser from University of Texas at El Paso. Larry’s caption provides a nice avenue for facilitating discussions of the importance of modeling in making forecasts.
