Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 123

Contest No. 123 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. Also, no captions at all will be posted for the first few days of each contest.  This is to give everybody a chance to submit their spontaneous, gut-instinct caption without fear of discovering that it was ripped off by somebody else's similar spontaneous caption. This is an equal opportunity contest!

There is no limit on the number of captions you can enter for each drawing, but I will only post and consider the first 15 captions from any contestant. 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, September12, 2017.  

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.


It's not my fault the complaint department is off on Monday!

What exactly didn't you like about the umbrella? Oh! And have a nice day!

"I hope my transfer to stairwell attendant comes through soon"!

"Lady, I don't pick the music"!

"Some people just don't get "elevator humor"!

"But Miss, the mile high club, is on the top floor"!

"This Uber elevator job ain't all it's cracked up to be"!

"What if we made it a double date"?

"No, I meant can I push your "ELEVATOR" buttons"?

"I guess I just have a way of pushing peoples buttons"!

"I can't help it if the car shakes up and down
uncontrollably between floors either, lady"!

"No lady, I meant ROOM 48-50,D, are the two big ones right in front of you when you get off the elevator"!

I said I'd like to ride WITH you on the elevator.

I still cannot believe they are real.

"My apologies Madam, I just assumed you wanted Lady's Lingerie."

"Madam, I swear this elevator always gets stuck between floors."

"Madam, I meant 'plus-size' as a compliment."

"My dear Madam, I said parasol, not paramour."

Whew!!! This job sure has its ups and downs!

I don't choose the elevator music ma'am.

Pushing the buttons is MY job!

I presume you failed the anger management course,madam.
