Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 22

(I'll be preoccupied for the next three weeks and won't have easy access to a computer. What I plan to do is start Contest No. 22 today and hold it open for entries until Tuesday, May 24th. My hope is that you will send in your captions as usual and that I will be able to post them whenever I can grab some computer time).

Cartoon Caption Contest No. 22 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 three weeks (for this contest only), 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, May 24, 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.

Here's the drawing for this contest -- it's graduation time, folks!



It says: Thank you for your participation in the Psychology Department's research study on mock diploma's given to students who didn't actually graduate. You and your parents will be monitored for the next few moments for any reactions. We look forward to seeing you in Psychology 101 again next year.

It says: "Congratulations, for completing your Art Major with a focus on Cartooning."

I got the only diploma in "parenting skills". Now I need a job.

"There are too many big words here...wanna read it to me?"

"Well, I guess all those years of hitting the books into the wee hours of the morning...and your $100,000 donation to the college library, has finally paid off.

"Remind me again...what did I major in?"

"Doctor of Psychiatry? I thought I was studying to be a car mechanic."

Gee ,thanks Mom and Dad..all I need now is two years at Harvard Med for my Bio-Med Research degree and two years at Johns Hopkins for my Masters!!!!

"This is going to look great hanging up in my old room!"

"Now I can go devote myself full-time to leveling up my World of Warcraft avatar."

"The seal is scratch-n-sniff!"

"This came out great. It looks like a real diploma."

Wow - the college is really going green. It says "Please no not discard. Remember to recycle."

What I don't understand is why a past due bill is attached to the diploma.
