If it's a boy, we'll call him Fairleigh

Via Emdashes comes a profile in the Louisville Courier-Journal of Farleigh Brooks, the New Yorker caption contest winner, Tarzan division, briefly discussed here last month. Turns out he's a "former suburban pseudo hippie" who "taps into the roaring spin cycle of distorted popular imagery." Hmm. Sounds like he should be submitting anti-captions instead of wasting his time with The New Yorker.

The best part of the profile is the reader comment at the end: "Man, the threshold for fame in Louisville is low." Ya think?
