Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 131

Contest No. 131 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, gut-instinct caption. This is an equal opportunity contest!

There is no limit on the number of captions you may 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, March 6, 2018.  

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.


"I'm not ready... try next desk."

"You'll have to come back later. We don't allow hoodies in the office."

"I'm swamped, can you wait until April 16th?"

"You're still not getting a raise."

"I already gave my soul to this job, what more do you want?"

"Well I'm not ready yet, and you're Smith from Accounting."

OK fine, I see your point.

Where the hell did you do your barber training?

Don`t you have any smaller toothpicks?

I don't think you need to worry . . . he only said he was lowering taxes.

You have the wrong office, the costume party is next door.

I’m not ready, can you come back at a later date?

"Can we take a selfie?"

I’m an accident lawyer. Any chance I can give you my card?

Bob in accounting has been slacking off, can you pay him a visit in your costume before heading to the party.

"Thanks, but I'm not crazy about change."

"I would but I have some serious deadlines to meet."

Take my wife, please.

Sorry I don't care who you are or who it is you work for, nobody sees Mr. Ross without an appointment.

Yes, I know it was her sandwich and yes, her name was on the bag, but really? Food poisoning?

Can I write one last email?

This is workplace harassment.

I get a raise and now this?

Sorry, I'm on lunch break.

...and tell him Bob sent ya.

Is white the new black?

Sorry, this is a weapons-free facility.

“The dead letter box is in the outer office!!!”

"Sorry, the ad was not for agricultural workers"

“I thought we had a meeting set for Samarra?”

No, you can't wear that when you fire an employee.
