Thanks to reader LR for pointing out that Wellesley’s Hal Mason is the big winner of the latest (Feb. 8) caption contest for The New Yorker magazine. The cartoon (click here to see it on New Yorker site) features a laundromat where the washers are filled with people. Mason’s caption: “I liked my old spin class better.”
The grand prize?
“The Qualified Winner of each Cartoon Caption Contest will receive a print of the cartoon, with the caption, signed by the artist who drew the cartoon (the “Prize”)… The approximate retail value of the Prize is $250.
