Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No.97

Contest No. 97 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, March 1, 2016.

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.



"It's a lunatic who wants you to bring home some firewater."

Collect call from Tonto?

Tonto found the fiery horse and the cloud of dust.

A guy named Tonto wants to talk to you

Someone is asking if a fellow with a mask is in the diner. Have you seen anyone like that?

Hey masked man, it's time to be "away."

"It's for you...says he's TONTO"

" Tonto said that he is being delayed. He is fighting with some wild Indians."

Are you the Loan Arranger, some guy called Tonto needs to borrow a few bucks.

"Your wife wants to know if you're a lone ranger or with a female companion."

I would feel less anxiety if you would take that mask off.

"Harvey, you know anybody here by the name of Kimosabe?"

"It's Tonto,your sidekick. What does he do, tell your future?"

"It's the escort service returning your call. You really are the lone ranger, aren't you?"

"You can't drive home in your condition. Who should I call, Tonto or Uber?"

Hey, Kemo Sabe, there's a Tonto on the phone for you. Do
you know him?

Did you forget to tie up your horse? There's a long distance call from somebody neighing in the background.

"The boss says you can pay with silver, just not with your horse."

"It's your Indian sidekick, Gandhi"

"The guy who's car you just dented in the parking lot wants to know, 'Who was that masked man?'"

"Tonto dropped your name; still couldn't get Hamilton tickets."

1. "Al, I know how to make a Mimosa, but what the heck is a Kemosabe?"

2. "Tonto, every time you cheat on him you break his heart by not being his 'faithful companion.'"

My boss says I shouldn't give you money even if you shoot me.
