  1. The caption can be in “New Yorker”  format (below the photo) or comic book style (thought bubble or word balloon). Please specify a preference.
  2. Email entries to [email protected] before midnight (Eastern) August 15, 2015. The winning entry will be announced Aug 17, 2015.
  3. Submissions must either be in English or, if in another language, must still be funny after being processed by Google Translate.
  4. Be aware that the winning entry and some non-winning entries may be posted on this site. The authors of the captions will be credited unless the entry includes a request for anonymity.
  5. Demographic, Geopolitical, & Affiliative Restrictions: Entrants must be identifiably human and alive at time of submission. Note: “Undead” does not qualify as “alive” and anthropomorphism doth not a human make.
  6. DrHGuy will choose the winning entry so sucking up, while not mandatory, probably wouldn’t hurt. In regard to this photo contest, DrHGuy has a predilection for captions that reference smartphones, apps, texting, the internet, etc, but if you’ve got another slant on the scene, knock yourself out.
  7. The winner will receive a print of the photo signed by Leonard Cohen. Yes, really.

    New Yorker format:

    Leonard wonders if a selfie will show any advance on “cute”.

    Sucking up element:
    Allan, you’re almost as breathtakingly gorgeous as Mr Cohen himself – no greater compliment exists! Love ya xxx

        First, there was the elevator in the ‘Chelsea’.
        Later the Casio.
        Now…another technology I have mastered…..
