Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 57

Contest No. 57 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, October 15, 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.

Below is the drawing that needs your caption. Yes, it's another very old cartoon of mine. It goes back well over 50 years, but here it is, big noses and all.

Once again, I'm hoping that you can be funnier than I was with my original caption.

"And then he just said, 'Meow'"

I didn't see the white flag, either.

Don't let the looks fool you, he's a real Lying King.

"Actually, taking my mother-in-law on the safari turned out to be a good idea."

"And then he stuck his head in our tent and saw my wife with her mud pack on."

1. "You'd be surprised how many of these you can find on ebay."

2. "My taxidermist has too much time on his hands."

3. "Definitely helps to hunt a lion with an elephant gun."

4. "Then I tickled him to death."

5. "Rule #1, shoot first, ask questions later."

"He wasn't that keen on my 'circle of life' theory."

"That was the morning I shot a lion in my pajamas."
