Advance Reading Copies copies of Kalimpura (a/k/a Green book 3) have arrived. We all know what that means — a giveaway via caption contest! So I hereby declare another one of those suckers, based on a photo from this chemo weekend. Your challenge is to write a caption that answers the question "Why is Jay wearing a bank robber mask, Ray-bans and pearls?"

First prize will be a personalized, signed copy of the Kalimpura ARC, as well as the Green and Kalimpura trade paperbacks. Additional prizes to be awarded at my discretion. Usual rules apply. I'll collect captions in comments here (at both and until I get bored with it, then build a voting poll. Please try to limit the length of your entries or they may become truncated in the poll code.

I'm really, really sorry, but the very first things that came to mind and I scrolled down the page was 'What's with the mutant squid look?'

Either that or something about a 'Mutant Ninja Jamie Hyneman'.

And while everyone tried to come up with a clever caption, horror was magnified times ten when the hood was removed and CarrotTop was revealed

"Freedom of expression, not repression!" Jay takes time out from his busy schedule to express solidarity with Pussy Riot.

(hey, it's late and everything that came to mind involving masked and pearled was in _very_ poor taste :)

Jay could never figure out why people didn't want to talk to him in the Theater District. He wore his best pearls, after all.

Jay decided to have his entire body surgically removed except for his lips. His soft, red, delectable lips.
