"Museum Tour" Caption Contest Commentary with Lawrence Wood
April 27, 2021 by Lawrence Wood
Years ago, I worked at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. In the summer of '89 I returned to D.C....
Lawrence Wood has won The New Yorker's Cartoon Caption Contest a record-setting seven times and been a finalist four other times. He has collaborated with New Yorker cartoonists Peter Kuper, Lila Ash, Felipe Galindo Gomez, and Harry Bliss (until Bliss tossed him aside, as anyone would, to collaborate with Steve Martin). Nine of his collaborations have appeared in The New Yorker, and one is included in The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons.

"For All Pigkind"
In the space of about two weeks, I'm hit with the news that
trillionaire serial worker abuser Jeff Bezos has found someone willing
to throw down $28 mil for a suborbital joyride with him — and that
Elon Musk will refuse to recognize Earth laws in his gated suburbs on
Mars. Doubtless Musk will have some Space Force grunts on-call to keep
a lid on things out there.
I'm especially bugged that Bezos has chosen July 20 as his launch
date; I'm sure he thinks he's making some deep statement or something,
but instead I'm just insulted somehow. Christ, 28 million dollars to
go suborbital with Jeff Friggin' Bezos. Bah, I'd rather be a stowaway
on Apollo 13.
