Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 137

Contest No. 137 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, August 21, 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.

"Okay, Dad, I get it, I'm past my curfew..."

"I guess I should let you know, I may have a jealous boyfriend or two..."

"Did I mention that I'm on a reality show?"

"You don't happy to have any particular anti-terrorist skills, do you?"

“I’ve heard the alligators are really big around here.”

"My dad's usually harmless, but I'd advise you keep both hands on the paddle."

"Ever wonder if your wife suspects something?"

"You had better look as white as a sheet - we're up Sheet Creek, now!"

"Oh boy! That's not a buoy!

"I told you my Dad was worse than a 'helicopter parent'."

"They're 'submarine parents' too."

"My Mom and Dad are also helicopter, car, and plane parents."

Did I mention my husband is a torpedo operator on a submarine.

"My father?...I thought it was your wife!"

"How romantic...a peaceful lake, a blue moon, and my paranoid father!"

"Dear, I know that you don't like to follow directions, but . . .
You shouldn't have ignored that sign - DO NOT ENTER - MILITARY PERSONNEL, ONLY!"

Do not look, but I think we are being followed.

Row a little faster, we`re supposed to be Speed Dating.

a come-on line!"
