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?




Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 82


Contest No. 82 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, April 14, 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. 81


                               "Pizza every Thursday sounds great!

                      Start docking everyone's paycheck to pay for it."

                                                  (by Kalasher)

 

My original caption: "Here's a great suggestion: Reduce employee salaries by twenty percent and lay off half the work force. Oh, it's from me."

 

Congrats, Kelasher, you did it again! This is your ninth win -- proof positive that you are still one of the funniest people around.

Here are the other captions that were given serious consideration for top honors:

"It's the next clue to the Hidden Immunity Idol." (by Sharon -- for anyone who's been living on Mars for the last 20 years, the caption is a reference to the "Survivor" TV show)

"Could I suggest we offer a handwriting course?" (by Brendan Powers)

"There should be more transparency in the company. Signed, ANONYMOUS." (by Cary Antebi)

"We should clean this out more often: this one suggests we look into some new fangled machines that have keyboards, monitors, invisible files and talk to each other." (by Pete Critelli)

A new contest will be up shortly, so keep those keyboards warm and keep those funny captions coming in.
