The April issue of the GPWA Times magazine features a cartoon of an affiliate webmaster in a room where everyone is watching England outplay the United States in the World Cup. Everyone, that is, except for the affiliate, who seems to be lost in thought in front of his computer. What's he doing? What is that woman with a drink in her hand saying? And why is she rolling her eyes like that? It's up to you to let us know. Within this thread, submit a witty caption for this cartoon.
