The Pleasure of Your Vote Is Requested

Maybe you're one of my two friends who actually laughs at New Yorker cartoons; maybe you're not. But that doesn't change the fact that fellow blogger and playwright Tim Bauer needs your vote. The New Yorker has a cartoon caption contest every issue. The magazine provides a drawing, and readers submit a caption. Tim is one of three finalists, and, if he wins, he claims that it "will likely be the only time my work is published in the New Yorker."

Vote for his caption here. You have until this Sunday, March 2, 2008, to do so. DO IT NOW.

(It is very likely that Gabriel and Jonny are rolling around on the floor laughing hysterically by now.)


  1. Easily the best one...possibly ever!

  2. I must admit, his caption was clearly the best. And almost funny enough that I might laugh out loud like Gabriel's doppelganger.

  3. Thanks for browbeating your fans! We're coming to Jukebox Stories on Saturday. Maybe I can buy you a beer with all my New Yorker cartoon caption winnings.

  4. I don't feel browbeaten at all..damnit.

    In fact I agree with everyone it was the funniest.

  5. be honest, it was the funniest one.

    but, if he wins, i get to interview him for my editor.

    i NEED these connections.
