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.
