Robert Gray Wins New Yorker Caption Contest

A hearty congratulations to Robert Gray, formerly of Northshire Bookstore and contributor to Shelf Awareness, for winning the New Yorker’s caption contest #106. The winning caption was “Have you considered writing this story in the third monkey rather than the first monkey?” and we have to agree with the folks at SA – it was certainly the wittiest, funniest caption of the bunch.

His quip? “Have you considered writing this story in the third monkey rather than the first monkey?” Here’s where to vote for the winning caption, which will appear in the magazine in the August 20th issue and online on August 13. The ballot closes August 5.
