New Yorker Caption Contest Features Cartoon from Seinfeld

Remember the above New Yorker cartoon? It’s the same one from “The Cartoon,” one of the later episodes in Seinfeld. The New Yorker is featuring in its captioning contest this week, so get to work! Oh, and just in case you forgot, below is the exchange in which Jerry, Elaine and Kramer discuss their captions.┬áKramer’s was definitely the best.

Jerry: It’s a pig at a complaint department.

Elaine: And he’s saying, ‘I wish I was taller.’ Hahaha! See? That’s his complaint.

Jerry: I get it.

Elaine: Do you? Because that’s not a normal complaint.

Jerry: How about if it was something like, ‘I can’t find my receipt, my place is a sty.’

Elaine: Ugh. Everything with you has to be so… Jokey.

Jerry: I’m a comedian.

Elaine: ‘I wish I was taller,’ that’s, that’s, that’s nice. That’s real.

Jerry: Well I got a complaint: This cartoon stinks.

Elaine: I’ll tell you who doesn’t think it stinks, The New Yorker. That’s right. They’re publishing it in their┬ánext issue!

[Kramer isn't speaking, so he taps on a sheet of paper that he gives to Elaine to read.]

Elaine: The pig says ‘My wife is a slut.’

Jerry: Now that’s a complaint.
