Hey Everyone —

Thanks so much for all the votes cast over the last few days. All of the finalists received a bunch of support, but there was a clear winner. Congratulations to Nicholas Bailey of Chicago for his winning literal caption: ”Here”!

Close on his tail were the runners-up: “I’m Groucho Marx, but not really. Here are the ten commandments,” by Kirk of Texas, and “God, your disguise sucks,” by David Hart of Victoria, Australia.

Thanks to everyone who participated — the caption contest was a blast, and I hope to have another one soon.

(As a sidenote, you may have noticed that there haven’t been new posts over the last few days. I was contacted this week by Condé Nast, which owns The New Yorker, about the blog using images that originally appeared in the magazine — I’m hoping to come to a satisfactory arrangement with them, but in the meantime I won’t be posting. Thank you all so much for reading and for being so enthusiastic about the blog. It’s been awesome to hear from all of you!)

    Apparently, Condé Nast has never heard of “Fair Use” (especially in terms of commentary or satire). CN == douchebags

    Perhaps the solution is to just start reblogging The New Yorker tumblr’s cartoons and adding the captions. Or for Condé...
