Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 88

Contest No. 88 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, August 25, 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. This one is REALLY old -- it's rubber-stamped on the back with an address, in Brooklyn, where I lived more than 60 years ago! Let's see what you can do with it.


So you're telling me that this is the kind of thing I'll find if I take the job as a garbage man?

Wow!! You'll give me that much money if I convince anyone to give $100 to your Hicksville Disease Charity?

1. "That's not the kind of raise I had in mind".

2. "In my dreams it was a major downpour".

"Now that you mention it...it IS like throwing away money!

Perhaps we SHOULD keep the safe locked when the cleaning crew is here.

"So much for my retirement account!"

This isn`t the Head Cashier job I applied for.

"When you said, 'You have a friend at Chase,' you weren't kidding!"

1."On second thought, I don't think I want you as my financial advisor."

"It's innovative, but I still prefer a safe deposit box."

One man's trash is another man's cash!

1. "It's nice, but I'd still rather have the toaster."

2. "I'd prefer the loan in roles of quarters."

3. "OK, you've made your point... Giving me a loan would be like throwing your money away."

4. "I assume the ATM machine is down again."

Make it rain, homie!

I am attracting money into my life... I am attracting money into my life... I am attracting money into my life... Hey, this Law of Attraction stuff works!

Your employment is like a basket full of worthless money being distributed over your useless mind!

"Better than pennies from heaven."

Boss,I love it when you Pass the Buck.

"I won't take your filthy lucre!"

Sorry- i know you're trying to impress me. But it's Monopoly money.

"I've had garbage bills before, but this is ridiculous."

It's raining, it's pouring,
The old man is SCORING!

Ok. I get it! The next time I make counterfeit money I'll make it for more than zero dollars.

I don't care what you try to give me. I'm here to arrest you!!!

I really don't care about the money, but I'd love to have the basket
