Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 27

Cartoon Caption Contest No. 27 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, September 20, 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.

Of course I had to find a "tennis" cartoon for this particular contest -- and here it is.



"I'm on my way to a Grand Slam, so you'll have to stay in this "Grand Slammer".

"Sorry son, but you know what they say in tennis: love means nothing."

"Do you mind if I miss the execution, Todd? I've been thinking about nothing but this doubles match for weeks."

"I heard you turned down the last meal. Do you mind letting me have the dessert?"

Wow, we got a really tough line judge.

I'm sorry....your parole board hearing will have to be postponed for at least two weeks!

Okay, I guess I misled you about where exactly I got my court experience from.

"No, your parole hearing delay has nothing to do with the U.S. Open. Why do you ask?

"I have news on your appeal. Let's just say it doesn't look like you'll be my doubles partner for another twenty years."

I have your tennis gear here. Since you won't need it for a while, I hope you don't mind if I use your racquet.

1. At least you'll have plenty of time to work on your back hand."
2." You'll be fine...just don't wear those short tennis shorts around here."

1. "I just knew you'd never win your case on a clay court."
2. "They can't convict you on double jeopardy, but they can put you away on a double fault."
3. Didn't anyone tell you, you can't bribe a line judge?"
