Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 138

Contest No. 138 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, September 18, 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've had the Justice of the Peace on speed dial
for quite some time!"

"Is the Community Hall booked for this weekend?"

"Do you really need to ask Siri's permission??"

I don't think your horoscope should have anything to say about your answer!

Honey, can you wait until I put the ring on your finger?

Can you at least wait until I propose?

"No Karen, go ahead ... I'm not busy!"

"Is this - GOT THE GROOM ... NEED A ROOM, service? Yes, I'd like to book the Honeymoon Suite, for next week please."

"Richard, I know it's short notice, but I'm going to have to cancel our date for tomorrow night."

"Is this ... ASK AL - RADIO REVIEW? I have a question! What are the top 3 validation signs ... indicating CUBIC ZARCONIA?"

"Darling, will you merge our cell-phone plans?"

"If that's my wife, I'm not here!"

"Why did you tell your mother, hell just froze over!?

"Marge, please decide, which ring do you like better?"

"My fiancee was just in yesterday, buying an engagement ring. What is the grace period, for exchanges?"

"I said yes! In this case, bigger is better!"

"Just let me know after you order the pizza."

"I think I'm supposed to ask your father for your hand."

"It's your mother. She wondered if I said yes!"

"No, Mrs. Anderson, your son hasn't popped the question, yet!"

Did your mother say 'yes'?

Which is more important, my proposal or calling your Mom?

If that's your boyfriend, I have something I would like to ask you first.

"Isn't there anything you don't have to check with your father first?"

Don`t tell me the line is engaged too, dear.

"How about we book the venue after you answer?"

"How long have you had Reverend Roberts on speed dial?"

"Who is Ancestry? What do you mean ... you just found out
that I'm your half-brother?"

"Who's Gary? What do you mean, tomorrow night's off?"

And, if you say yes, I'll even buy you a SmartPhone to replace your flip phone.
