Cartoon Caption Contests

Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 110


Contest No. 110 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, 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, December 6, 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 funny captions.






Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 109


                   "Nothing happened until I said I was here for his taxes."

                                           (by Jonathan Stein)

 

My original caption: "He didn't even give me a chance to tell him about our costume party."

 

Nice going, Jonathan Stein! This is your second win -- the first was a little over a year ago. So once again, you have proved to be one of the funniest people around -- my heartiest congratulations!

There were some pretty clever entries this time around. These are the others that "almost made it":

"Well, that's three for three. You want to go first at the next one?" (by John Platt)

"In hindsight, I should have gone with the 'Hello Kitty' costume." (by Cary Antebi)

"Well, don't just stand there, get on your broom and get some help." (also by Cary Antebi)

"I guess my husband was right. He always said I would be the death of him." (by mel tanenbaum)

"I was wrong. Our cranky neighbor did have a heart." (by Brendan Powers)

"Well, I never was the life of the party." (also by Cary Antebi)

"If I knew killing him was this easy, I would have done it years ago." (by Diane)

Don't be discouraged if you haven't won yet -- this is an equal opportunity Contest and the next one will be up in a couple of weeks (it's easy enough -- simply submit the funniest caption!)

Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 108


                "I haven't gotten to an ATM since we met this morning . . . "

                                         (by Brendan Powers)

 

My original caption: "I already gave at the corner of Ninth and Main."

 

Wow, a sixth victory for you, Brendan Powers -- you have really been on a hot streak lately. Once again you can command the title of "one of the funniest people around". Congratulations!

Lots of good captions to choose from. These are the others that were under serious consideration:

"Cash is so old-fashioned. Do you take Bitcoin?" (by John Platt)

"I'm broke as you! This is my Halloween costume." (by Harvey Appelbaum)

"Sorry. You're too late. My wife already robbed me. " (by Jeff Groth)

"Apparently you have not heard about Bitcoin." (by Marc)

"But, I gave at the office." (by Marvin Sager)

"First come, first served." (another one by Brendan Powers)

"Sorry, I'm a retired teacher." (by Tim Collins)

"Well, there's your proof that crime doesn't pay." (by Cary Antebi)

A word of advice to all captioneers: please be aware of who is doing the talking in the contest drawings, and make sure your caption is written accordingly. A caption that comes out of the mouth of a non-speaker would automatically have to be out of consideration. 

The drawing for the next contest will be posted, as usual, in a couple of weeks.

My original caption: "Don't tell me, let me guess. You want a barbecue cookbook?"

 

What?! Another win for Cary Antebi? Yes, and it's a good, solid caption, for your TWENTY-FOURTH top prize. Congrats once again, Cary Antebi . . . you are consistently one of the funniest people around.

You all seemed to be inspired by the last drawing of mine from over sixty years ago, so here's another one from the same era. Keep those captions coming!






Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 105


                                             "In the Beginning . . . "

"And Cush begat Nimrod . . . and Arphaxad begat Shelah . . . and Joktan begat                         Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah . . . "

                                     (both captions by Brendan Powers)

 

My original caption: "In the beginning . . . "

 

Spectacular work, Brendan Powers! Two great captions, and one of them an exact clone of my original caption from so many years ago! We never met, and I certainly don't know how old you are, but it's almost as if you were standing behind me, looking over my shoulder, when I drew this cartoon more than 60 years ago. Congratulations on your well-deserved fifth win -- and also this makes for two in a row for you, since you won Contest No. 104. You are indeed one of the funniest people around.

There were lots of good captions to choose from. Here are the others that I was considering for top honors:

"Hail Mary's just aren't cutting it for me anymore. How about some Prozac?" (by John Platt)

"Bless me head-shrinker, for I have sinned." (by Cary Antebi)

"Before I begin, a few announcements . . . " (also by Brendan Powers)

"I think I'm a nun trapped in a preacher's body!" (by Tim Collins)

"I think I'd feel more comfortable if we change places and you do all the confessing." (also by Cary Antebi)

 

Thanks, captioneers, for all the submissions. Look for Contest No. 106 in just a couple of weeks.
