Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 84


Contest No. 84 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, May 26, 2015.

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.

Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 83


   "I am proud to introduce John Fafushnick who will discuss Gender Confusion."

                                                 (by Howard Garrett)

 

My original caption: " . . . a man we deeply respect and admire . . . a man who really needs no further introduction . . . "

 

No Gender Confusion here -- it's a big fifth win for Mr. Howard Garrett! Congratulations, Howard, once again you can assume the title of "One of the funniest people around".

Some of the other submitted captions that I was considering for top honors:

" . . . and in our newest category, the Equality Awards, the woman who has always been my right hand man . . . " (by Bruce Morgenstern)

"And now I'll bring up Sharon who has the financial report from last month to share with us. Translation: Bathroom break!" (by Brad Labanowitz)

"And now with a very loooong rebuttal, our chairwoman." (by Cary Antebi)

"Our next speaker is here to talk about sexual harassment, which is something that I wish I had known before I asked what she was doing after tonight's meeting." (by John Platt)

 

I'll be posting a new contest shortly, so keep those inventive, whimsical captions coming in. Thanks.

Rough Notes, 1991





Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 82


                                    "What was your name again?"

                                                (by John Platt)

 

My original caption: "What was your name again?"

 

Yep, that's correct -- John Platt nailed my original caption, right down to the crossed "t" and the dotted "i". It's uncanny . . . either that, or the caption was so obvious that it was everybody's first thought and John "Speedy" Platt got it in before anyone else could. Ken Wilkinson's caption, the second one submitted, was essentially the same gag. Ken submitted his caption before I had posted John's caption, by the way, so there was no "plagiarism" involved in any way.

Congrats once again, John Platt. This is your tenth win -- you are truly one of the funniest people around!

There weren't too many captions submitted this time around, and that surprised me. I thought that this drawing would get much more action than it did. I guess John's "perfect" caption discouranged many of you from submitting.

Please remember that matching my original caption is not the point of this contest. The point is to create the funniest caption. That being said, these are the only other captions that I was mulling over for the top prize:

"Ah that reminds me, what is your name?" (by ken wilkinson)

"It's Lavern, right?" (by Cary Antebi)

"Ah yes -- when we get back to the office, would you mind ordering a birthday gift for my wife?" (by Levi)

A new contest will be coming up in a couple of weeks. What say we all get our minds out of the gutter and clean up our act for the next one, okay?
