Hilton Head Island resident Matt Schneider, an associate priest at All Saints Episcopal Church, won The New Yorker magazine's caption contest this week.

Schneider's entry for contest No. 399, which appeared in the Oct. 28 issue, is a wisecrack about two cowboys riding knight pieces from a chess board.

Schneider's submission:

"I suggest that you back up slowly two paces and take one step to the side."
