For the last six months, i have been entering the New Yorker Magazine cartoon caption contest. For those of you who don't know what it is, an artist will have a cartoon drawn up, and it is up to you to make a funny caption to go along with it. The way i got involved was i read an article where people like  director Kevin Smith, and actor Bill Hader and others in the entertainment field have been submitting captions, but never had theirs win, or even put into the final three where they are voted on by the public.

Well, i thought i would give it a try. I thought some of my captions were kinda of funny., but i might be a bit  prejudice to favor my writing. But , i've noticed that since i have started to do this, every so often, the New Yorker would send me e-mails to see if i want a subscription to the magazine, offering me 30% or more of the newstand price. So, are you telling me that to get consideration for a caption for a cartoon, i need to get a subscription to the magazine? 

Its just another conspiracy theory i want to put out there on the internet like conspiracy theories about bigfoot, secret governments and the like. But what if bigfoot is real, and there are secret governments trying to control the world, then maybe it would be true that for anyone to win the New Yorker cartoon caption contest , you would have to buy a subscription to the magazine.
