Artist: Mick Stevens The New Yorker August 25 2008 cartoon caption contest 157
Proposed Caption: "Some 380 million years ago, a few pioneering vertebrates first made the leap from water to land. And today, tens of millions of their human descendants seek summer amusement by leaping the other way. According to the travel industry, close to 90 percent of vacationers choose as their holiday destination an ocean, lake or other scenic body of water. So said Natalie Angier in 21st century.
Today I would like to append to her list a new destination- the planet Saturn.
But I am confident this will have no impact on the booming business dedicated astrology channels, run by our sister companies, do in India."
