Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 107


Contest No. 107 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 is midnight Tuesday, October 4, 2016.

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 funny captions.

                                         "Polly want your wallet."

                                                    (by Marc)

 

My original caption: "It's nothing but 'Polly want a cracker, Polly want a cracker' all day and all night."

 

Nice going, Marc -- this is your second win. Congratulations on proving once again that you're one of the funniest people around!

Here are the other captions that I was considering for top prize:

"He was supposed to be a parakeet!" (by Anne Noonan)

"I think I fed her too many crackers." (by Kelasher)

"The only time he's quiet is Thanksgiving Day!" (by Tim Collins)

"Polly wanted a lot of crackers." (by Sharon)

"Polly wants a cracker . . . and everything else in the refrigerator." (by Cary Antebi)

"What does an 800-lb parrot say? Whatever he wants to say." (also by Cary Antebi)

 

Good work, captioneers! Thanks for participating -- look for the next contest in a couple of weeks.

You all seemed to be inspired by the last drawing of mine from over sixty years ago, so here's another one from the same era. Keep those captions coming!




First, 1991





NASSP News Leader, 1991





National Review, August 19, 1988





Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 105


                                             "In the Beginning . . . "

"And Cush begat Nimrod . . . and Arphaxad begat Shelah . . . and Joktan begat                         Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah . . . "

                                     (both captions by Brendan Powers)

 

My original caption: "In the beginning . . . "

 

Spectacular work, Brendan Powers! Two great captions, and one of them an exact clone of my original caption from so many years ago! We never met, and I certainly don't know how old you are, but it's almost as if you were standing behind me, looking over my shoulder, when I drew this cartoon more than 60 years ago. Congratulations on your well-deserved fifth win -- and also this makes for two in a row for you, since you won Contest No. 104. You are indeed one of the funniest people around.

There were lots of good captions to choose from. Here are the others that I was considering for top honors:

"Hail Mary's just aren't cutting it for me anymore. How about some Prozac?" (by John Platt)

"Bless me head-shrinker, for I have sinned." (by Cary Antebi)

"Before I begin, a few announcements . . . " (also by Brendan Powers)

"I think I'm a nun trapped in a preacher's body!" (by Tim Collins)

"I think I'd feel more comfortable if we change places and you do all the confessing." (also by Cary Antebi)

 

Thanks, captioneers, for all the submissions. Look for Contest No. 106 in just a couple of weeks.
