Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 104


Contest No. 104 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 (actually two weeks for this contest only, because I will be away from my computer for a while), after which a winner will be announced and the winning caption will be printed. Below that I will also print my original caption.

So the cut-off time and date for you to send in your captions (two weeks away, for this contest only) is midnight Tuesday, August 2, 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 caption.




Dartnell, 1990





Report to Legal Management, 1986





Woodmen of the World, 1995





Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 103


                "We'll see where a degree from Trump University gets you!"

                                          (by mel tanenbaum)

 

My original caption: "Steve! Why I haven't seen you since we graduated together seventeen years ago . . . "

 

Congrats, mel tanenbaum, this is a decisive second victory for you! Once again you are one of the funniest people around . . . and I guess you can thank Donald Trump for that.

These are the other captions that were under serious consideration:

"Hey, Fred! Laundry day?" (by John Platt)

"Congratulations! High School or college?" (by Jo Pette)

"That's not exactly what our firm expects on Casual Fridays." (by Cary Antebi)

 

Thanks, captioneers. Look for Contest No. 104 to begin in a couple of weeks.

Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 102


                     "I can't hear the news over your needlework, dear."

                                          (by Brendan Powers)

 

My original caption: "Boy, what a pair of boobs!"

 

Cangrats, Brendan Powers! This is your third victory, so you can proudly boast that you have regained your title as one of the funniest people around.

Not too many captioneers this time around, once again. I think I'll start calling the contest "Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest for Cary Antebi and Anyone Else Who Cares to Participate". Okay, I won't go that far, but what's happening, anyway? This drawing should have generated loads of funny captions. What do I have to do, throw in a drawing of an octopus or a clown, like The New Yorker does for its contest?

Anyway, at least we can all agree that my original caption was by far the best of the lot. I still can't understand why Hugh Hefner didn't snap it up for Playboy when he had the chance (it's too late now -- Playboy has officially discontinued publishing cartoons).

These are the other captions that I was considering for top honors:

"Mable, I think it's time we got a flat television . . . and have sex." (by Cary Antebi)

"Molly, I told you not to embroider while I'm trying to concentrate on the nightly news. It turns me on!" (also by Cary Antebi)

"Yes, it's true! They are saying that for the past five years they've made every single story up!" (by Bruce Morgenstern)

 

The new contest will start in about two weeks. I'm searching for my "Octopus" file right now.
