Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 109

Contest No. 109 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 is midnight Tuesday, November 15, 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 funny captions.


Apparently, his costume is a "door Matt".

I wanted to be scary, but not that scary!

"Nothing happened until I said I was here for his taxes."

I think he thought I was the grim reaper

Well, that's three for three. You want to go first at the next one?

"He does this every year to avoid giving treats."

"Maybe I just should have dressed up as Raggedy Annie."

"Obviously, there's something more on the warning label besides 'Dry Clean Only.'"

"You're too late."

"And I thought the Donald Trump mask was too scary!"

"It must've been the wrong number, I thought he asked for me."

"In hindsight, I should have gone with the 'Hello Kitty' costume."

"Well, don't just stand there, get on your broom and get some help."

"It wasn't me...he just heard Trump was elected president."

"Don't come on strong. He scares easily."

"It's Halloween, what was he expecting...chocolates and some roses?"

"Maybe I shouldn't have knocked three times."

The costume didn't scare him so I told him I'm really an Internal Revenue agent coming to audit his taxes.

"Finally payback on the 27 years he stiffed us on trick-or-treat candy!"

"Is it permissible for 'Death' to leave the scene of a murder?"

"I just asked if he liked playing chess."

I guess my husband was right. He always said I would be the death of him.

"He's faking it, but honestly, he scared the death out of me."

I was wrong. Our cranky neighbor did have a heart.

You should have went with the nurse outfit!

All I said was "thank you."

Maybe he's choosing Trick.

1. "Well, I never was the life of the party."

2. Well, I never was the life of the party, and now neither is he."

Too bad the Santa Claus costume was sold out.

He was my husband and thought I was dead.

If I knew killing him was this easy, I would have done it years
