Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 87

Contest No. 87 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, July 28, 2015.

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.


I'm interested in buying the garage but why is there so much junk everywhere?!

"I'll take the garage."

How much are you charging for your garage?

I'm going next door. He has the same lamp but is charging much more.

Madam, I was robbed 3 weeks ago and those are the items that were stolen..

Everything you are selling is pure junk. Can I offer $800 for all of it?

1. "You sold dad's old cigar humidifier for two bucks? He had our life's savings stashed in it."

2. "Mom, Garage Sales are so yesterday. You never heard of Craig's List?"

3. "It's a great sale, but shouldn't you be clearing out our garage instead of our neighbor's?"

Mom, is it possible to sell Dad?

How much for the " Garage Sale Today" sign?

Miss, do you have any valuable books you want to sell for $3.00?

The only antique in this garage sale-is you.

Sir, these are the exact golf clubs used by Tiger Woodens when he beat his wife up.

Sir, the TV is an antique. Turn it on to Channel 4 and you will see the Milton Berle Show.

The clock is a bargain since it only shows Pacific Time.

" If it doesn't sell you can always put it in the yard and have a yard sale !"

"I don't think this is how Microsoft started out of a garage."

"Mom, why do you keep saying, "Today the garage, tomorrow the world, and what's this Ebay idea you have?"

I would have bought the lamp but it's missing the bulb.

Miss, how much is the necklace you're wearing?

Your offer of $10 for the TV is much too low. I need at least $10.25

How much is the table?

1. "Ten dollars for a typewriter?" What's a typewriter?"

2. "Mom your embarrassing me. It's spelled 'Garage Sail.'"

"I called dad to tell him you're working the street again."

When is this through, Mother? I'd like my room back.

I'm told this is Buy One, Regret One.

Young man, I want to tell you this fan is very special.Sir Lawrence of Arabia always had it with him whenever he was in the desert.

I needed the garage space for this sale, and I couldn't find a spot to put my car, so I just sold it.

"You got ANYTHING digital here?"

"Well, now that you've sold my skateboard, Ipad, and cell phone...I'm just going to kill myself."

"What are you trying to make room in here for...A horse and buggy?"

Those Playboy magazines were originally owned by Bill Cosby. They inspired him.

The lamp is very, very special. If you plug it into an electrical outlet and turn the on switch, it will light up.

The cups are very old. My grandfather used one for coffee and he used the other one to put his false teeth in.

"What's your return policy?"

Mum,if I was you, I`d put the letter B in the middle of Garage.

Where do I login?

"Gee, Mrs. Henderson, the only other place I've seen things like this is on the old reruns of 'Leave It To Beaver.'"

Let's see Mom - Garage Sale today, Canasta game yesterday, any other big summer excitement planned for us?
