Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 72


Contest No. 72 starts right now.

Briefly, here are the details: I'll supply a drawing of one of my old cartoons that has never been published, leaving off my caption. You are invited to supply your funniest captions. Simply (1) click on "Add New Comment". Then (2) scroll down past any other submitted captions and type in your name and your caption in the spaces provided. Then (3) click "Save". Your caption (or captions) will be posted after I review your submission.

There is no limit on the number of captions you can enter for each drawing. Entries will be accepted and posted for one week, after which a winner will be announced and the winning caption will be printed. Below that I will also print my original caption.

The cut-off time and date for you to send in your captions for this contest is midnight Tuesday, September 2, 2014.

I will be the sole judge. The winning caption will be the one I judge to be the funniest one submitted (not necessarily the one that matches or comes closest to my original caption). Additional rules and regulations, for those of you who need such things, can be found here.

Below is the drawing that needs your caption.




Physician's Management, 1998





Highlights for Children, 1985





NASSP News Leader, 1988





Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 71


                                      " Holds 100 fortune cookies."

                                                    (by Jo Pette)

 

         My original caption: "Oh yes, sir, I guarantee it's a genuine Ming vase."

 

Congratulations, Jo Pette -- you finally made it into the sacred inner circle of winners! At long last you have earned the right to be considered one of the funniest people around.

There were many interesting captions submitted -- and thanks for keeping them (mostly) politically correct! After I posted this contest drawing, I heard from people who were concerned that I would probably get many racially-offensive captions. But you all stayed on top of the situation -- in fact, the most offensive caption was probably my own original one!

These were some of the other captions that I was seriously considering for top prize:

"Believe me, that is NOT one of my vases!" (by Anne Noonan)

"Of course it's made in China. Do you know anything that isn't?" (by Cary Antebi)

"That's not for sale, it's my cookie jar." (by Dale Stout)

"Comes with ancient Chinese curse . . . 33% tax." (also by Cary Antebi)

Thanks for participating. Be on the lookout for the next contest. It'll be coming up soon.

              "You'll want to watch The Animal Channel . . . it's Sloth Week."

                                                (by Cary Antebi)

 

My original caption: "You're not up to code, Harvey, so I'm leaving you."

 

Hey, congratulations, Cary Antebi -- you put in a lot of effort here and one of your 34 (yes, 34!) captions has won again . . . and it's your sixteenth win! Once again you are entitiled to be recognized as one of the funniest people around.

These are some of the other captions that I was considering for top honors (but I'm warning you, most of them are by Cary Antebi):

"I love going door to door selling luggage so that you can enjoy watching TV." (by Howard Garrett)

"I'll be back when football season is over." (by Kelasher)

"When he said, 'Don't touch that dial', he didn't mean forever." (by Cary Antebi)

"THIS is reality! You might want to try it sometime besides watching it on TV." (also by Cary Antebi)

"I'm sick and tired of you asking me, 'Do you know 15 minutes can save you 15% or more on car insurance?'" (also by Cary Antebi)

"It's called 'Walking out on you', but then, you wouldn't know much about walking." (also by Cary Antebi)

Don't touch that dial or lose heart, folks -- a new contest will be up soon and you know you can't win it if you're not in it.
