Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 55

Contest No. 55 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, September 3, 2013.

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.

This is the drawing that needs your caption. Yes, this is a very old cartoon -- it goes back well over fifty years. Remember, we all have to start somewhere!



No Jay Leno portraits please!

Please go to the next room "Is This Really Art Jury?!!!!"

I declare a mistrial.

Would you like to enter a plea of insanity?

So you say this represents your Late Period -- "Absolutely Absurd"

You win first prize since you're the only one who showed up

Sure you've been framed, that's what they all say.

"This still life looks like it dropped dead!"

"Before we vote we need to know one thing: Are you holding that painting upside down or not?"

My kid could have painted that -- hey! You are my kid!

The only Blue Ribbon you've had is a Pabst.

"That may be impressionistic but it doesn't impress us."

"I suggest you just stick to paint-by-number kits."

"We can't decide if it's a brilliant depiction of man's existential struggle for meaning...or just crap."

"We asked for portraits of the company founder, not the current president."

"We find you in contempt of art!"

"What the other prisoners like has no bearing on this

"It' so bad were thinking of giving you a parole!"

"I knew Alice Rovisky, she was a friend of mine, and you
'SIR', are no Rovinsky!"

"Existentially speaking, it's surreal!

"Kandinsky?" "Nobody liked Kandinsky!"

"ART"? "We've see better graffiti in the men's room"!
