Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No.97


Contest No. 97 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, March 1, 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 caption.

 






Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 96


"Miss Moneypenny, please send the following memo to my boss: you're a moron

                                               and your wife is fat."

                                               (by mel tanenbaum)

 

My original caption: "Miss Nagle, please hold all phone calls."

 

Yes, it's a first time win for mel tanenbaum! Congtratulations, mel -- you are now officially one of the funniest people around, so you can bask in the glory of your victory.

Lots of good entries to choose from this time. Here are the other captions that I was seriously considering for top honors:

"Cancel all my meetings . . . forever!" (by Cary Antebi)

"I think this 'Casual Friday' thing has gone far enough." (also by Cary Antebi)

"Sharon, could you call in the attorneys for a few questions? Thanks." (by John Platt)

"I know, I know! Just let me check this last voicemail." (by Brendan Powers). I thought this was an exceptionally funny entry, by the way, and I almost declared the contest a tie, but finally decided that mel's caption was slightly better.

"Helen, I thought I told you to cancel my appointment to meet my maker." (also by Cary Antebi)

"Brenda, will you please validate parking for my guest's pale horse?" (by kelasher)

 

Hope you're having fun thinking up these captions . . . because that's what it's all about! The next contest should be up in a couple of weeks.
