    The New Yorker's cartoon issue includes a caption contest. This year's will appeal to you greatly. Look at the drawing, and submit your caption suggestions by December 20. Don't forget to post them here, too!

    Melissa,

    Remember how, in "A Prayer For Owen Meany," young Owen knew that all of the signature events in his life were rehearsals for a single, pivotal moment that would reveal the shape and meaning of his life? For me, that moment has arrived.

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go pull out my hair for three weeks.

    Yours truly,

    Clem

    this is irrelevent but after watching the beer can chicken episode of DFL! im trying to figure a positive way to harness the explosion of a beer (the holy grail being Nitrogen charged) in the cooking of an animal, most likely fowl.... i figure the shrapnel before being picked out could allow extra paths for aromatics to penetrate the flesh....

    " garcone, attend here. These chopsticks smell of ammonia, replace them at once."

    You know, this cartoon looks like something Dr. SOS would be dreaming about. Of course, with more girls in it.
