Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 38


Contest No. 38 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) enter the anti-spam security code that assures me that you're a human being and not a machine, and (4) click "Save". There is no limit on the number of captions you can submit for each drawing.

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 submit your captions for this contest is midnight Tuesday, July 3, 2012.

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.

This is the drawing that needs your funny caption:

 

 






The Wall Street Journal, 2001


Another undated Wall Street Journal cartoon, taken from the book, The Wall Street Journal Portfolio of Golf Cartoons, edited by Charles Preston and published by Dow Jones and Co. in 2001.






Union Communication, February 2003


 

The audience for Union Communication is labor unions, of course, so this gag is slanted to appeal to them.






Boardroom Lists, April 1984


Strictly for the direct mail industry. I supplied the drawing, editor Brian Kurtz supplied the caption -- hence my sharing my byline with him.

 






Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 37


"Medicare hasn't approved your purchase of a case of bourbon."

(by Cary Antebi)

 

My original caption: "It's a don't-get-well card from the liquor store."

Congratulations, Cary -- this is your big ninth (yes, ninth!) win, so you are definitely one of the funniest people around. Keep up the good work!

For the next contest, I'll try to select a drawing that will stimulate everybody's imaginations and perhaps attract more captions. It's a challenge, but I'll try -- and hope you will, too.
