Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 20

Cartoon Caption Contest No. 20 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 'COMMENTS' underneath the current drawing. Then (2) scroll down past all the other comments and type in your name and your caption in the spaces provided. Then (3) enter the anti-spam security word that assures me that you're a human being and not a machine, and (4) click 'Submit'. There is no limit on the number of captions you can submit 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 submit your captions for this contest is midnight, Tuesday, March 29, 2011.

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.

Got your gagwriting caps on? Here's the new drawing: captioncontest20.jpg


I dance to the beat of a different drummer.

"After twelve years of wearing that thing, don't you think it's time to join a band?"

"Actually, when I said I'd like to drum up some excitement around here, I was speaking metaphorically ..."

Harold, when your mother suggested that it might be a good idea to learn to play a musical instrument I think she had in mind Piano or a Guitar.

"May I remind you, it's a Marching Drum, not a Couch-Potato Drum."

"I can handle the drumming, but all those 'Rah Rah Siscumbas' are starting to irritate me."

"My daughter will be right down...as soon as she puts on her glockenspiel."

"Can you play 'Moon River' on that thing?"

"How many open manholes did you fall into this week?"

"You've been a couch potato for years. It's time you drum up some business."

So, you joined the High School marching band....tell me, in what State did you plan to do your practice sessions????

I told you just because he has the most magnificent violet eyes is not a good reason to pick a drum!

"Congratulations, you've managed to find something more annoying than cracking your knuckles.

"We've decided to send you to an out of town college...waaay out of town."

When I said playing an instrument would help you find a girlfriend... This isn't quite what meant.

"Have you considered strumming a guitar under her window instead?"

1."That is the portable version!?"
2. "I'm waiting for one with a camera."
3. "Give them a few years and they'll have one you can wear on your wrist."
4. "You can go to my daughter's room now...just make sure I don't hear that drum stop beating."
