Have you ever seen...

...the cartoon contest on the back page of the New Yorker? It's also on the Web site. You're given a picture and then you have to supply the caption. I can never come up with anything remotely funny but the winning entries are really clever! Check it out.

This is a link to an article about how to win the New Yorker caption contest. It's actually a pretty interesting breakdown of what makes a good New Yorker cartoon, despite what is said about the dangers of explaining comedy. The author of the article won one of the contests himself so its not just Monday morning New Yorker cartoon caption contest writing(something I think we've all heard our fair share of over the years...)
