Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 36

"No Bertha, this wasn't on my bucket list."

(by Sharon)


My original caption: "How come I never hear from you any more? The least you could do is send me a penny postcard occasionally!"


Congratulations, Sharon -- this is your third win, so you can once again bask in the glory of being one of the funniest people around.

It was a very close contest -- I kept going back and forth between Sharon's caption and Gary's: "When you choose to do jail speed dating, you can't be that picky!".  But Sharon's bucket list finally won out over Gary's jail speed dating.

Other entries that I was considering:

"My cellmate creeps me out. He has no eyes or mouth!" (by Levi) -- clever and silly, and it made me laugh!

"It's great seeing you after all these many years, Martha. Martha? Martha? Hey, wake up!! (by Tom Nelson)

"Martha, I keep telling you . . . I'm not a bank teller, and I can't cash your checks." (by Cary Antebi)

"Let's see, we don't hug and kiss any more, we only talk to each other fifteen minutes a month, and I hang out every night with the boys . . . so nothing has really changed." (also by Cary Antebi)

"Why are you wearing a hat, coat and carrying a pocketbook when I'm the one visiting you?" (by Howard Garrett) -- a clever switch, and I liked it.

Interesting, isn't it, how many "old" women's names cropped up in the captions submitted? I'm talking about Bertha, Martha, Gladys, Agnes and Ethel. I guess this was no place for names like Madison, Samantha, Abigail, Sophia or Alyssa.

Good work, everyone -- keep your eyes peeled for the next contest, coming up soon.
