Anti-Caption Contest news

The New Yorker isn't publishing this week, so there's no caption contest, anti- or otherwise. For the winner of last week's contest, click here.

To ease your withdrawal symptoms, why not order tickets now for the February 7th Rejection Show, where I will be joining New Yorker cartoonist Matt Diffee for a presentation of rejected submissions to the actual contest and some highlights from the anti-contest. What most people don't know is that the cartoons used in the New Yorker contest are all originally submitted with captions for publication inside the magazine proper. My hope is that Matt will be willing to share some of these rejections too. Can they really be worse than what readers come up with?

Also on the Rejection Show bill that night: Peter Hyman and Michael Showalter.
