invites you to "take a picture of your pet—dog, cat, ferret, iguana, or any other nonhuman member of the animal kingdom—dressed as a character from literature, and upload it to newyorker.com by October 25th." Gallery
MetaFilter's own Jessamyn
happens to be a judge (so well-dressed chicken entries might just have an edge, amirite?
). "There will be up to 5 winners. Winning submissions, along with the creator's name, will be featured in a slideshow on www.newyorker.com and each winner will receive a signed copy of the book 'Indognito'.”
The contest is only open to U.S. and Canadian residents (except Quebec), sadly, but the rest of us can still enjoy the hilarious discomfiture of other people's pets dressed up like Hairy Potter, Oedipuss, Huckleberry Fins and Miss Havishamster.
