‘New Yorker’ caption contest: I was robbed


I was robbed. My New Yorker Caption Contest photo was far superior to any of these. As C. says, “You should do a write-in vote. Yours was way better and incorporated a bunch of New Yorkers’ (the people, not the magazine) favorite things: Jewish people who eat Chinese food on holidays.” My caption was, “Do you know how hard it is to find a kosher Chinese place in this wilderness?” The only one above that even comes close is the second one, and I think it’s a bit too long.

And the one about the weight of the tablets doesn’t even acknowledge the Chinese characters on the tablet!
