Cartoon Caption Contests

Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 76


Contest No. 76 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 for this contest is midnight Tuesday, November 25, 2014.

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.






Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 75


                            "Son, I'm going to show you how to make a

                        sensible decision. We're getting the Edsel."

                                                        (by Levi)

 

My original caption: "Shall we have them deliver it, or will you wrap it around a pole in here?"

 

Congrats, Levi, you've done it again! This is your seventh winning caption -- proof positive that you're one of the funniest people around.

Did anyone come up with a funnier caption than my original one, which is more than 50 years old? Hmmmm . . . personally I don't think so. What's your opinion??? (And don't bother telling me they're all funnier!)

Anyway, here are some of the other captions that I was mulling over for top honors:

"NO, you will not be getting your own set of keys." (by Mildred Romano)

"Now remember, this is for driving, not parking." (by John Platt)

"No, GM doesn't stand for Girl Magnet." (by Cary Antebi)

"What's it going to take me to get you OUT of this car?" (also by Cary Antebi)

"It's called a convertible, son, not 'topless'!" (by Caryn)

"Your student loan better cover this car." (also by Cary Antebi)

 

Contest No. 76 will be coming up soon -- I'll try to make it real challenging for you all.

Below is the drawing that needs your caption. As you can tell from the drawing, it's a very old cartoon of mine -- it goes back well over 50 years. And remember, the cartoon never sold, so you shouldn't have any problem being funnier than my original caption.

            "Would you like the e-cigarette or non e-cigarette section?"

                                            (by Cary Antebi)

 

My original caption (from about 25 years ago): "Two-for-one coupon or no two-for-one coupon?"

 

Cary Antebi again! Congratulations once more -- it's your eighteenth win (18 out of 74 ain't bad). You are certainly proving to be one of the funniest people around.

Here are the other captions I was seriously considering for top honors:

"Yeah, it's everybody's birthday today." (by Sharon)

"Please remove shoes, wallet, belts, laptops, anything in your pockets . . . " (by Brendan Powers)

"You've got a reservation? Hey, I've got reservations about you, as well." (also by Cary Antebi)

Yes, I know, as a caption judge I'm just like a snotty maitre' d. I wish everybody could win, but you still have to be genuinely funny if you want to get past me. So please grin and bear it -- a new contest will be up soon, and you'll all have a fresh crack at it.

Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 73


It's another tie!

 

                        "Great, the 'Divorce for Dummies' book arrived."

                                               (by Cary Antebi)

                                "It finally arrived -- my divorce papers." 

                                            (by Howard Garrett)

 

My original caption: "Oh, good -- my do-it-yourself divorce kit!" (And, on an older version of the cartoon, my caption was "Just the usual stuff in the mail, dear . . . bills . . . coupons . . . my do-it-yourself divorce kit . . . "). Neither the longer version nor the shorter one was ever bought or published.

 

Congratulations, you two. This is your seventeenth win, Cary Antebi, and your third one, Howard Garrett. So I'll just say it again for all to hear -- you've got to be two of the funniest people around!

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

"They say you may already be a winner -- those liars." (by Dale Stout)

"'CELEBRATE 'OUR' WINNINGS FROM BETTING!' The newest IRS pamphlet!" (by drmrs)

Don't despair -- a new contest will be coming up soon.

Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 72


                     "I know the nurse, but who the hell are you two?"

                                         (by Howard Garrett)

 

My original caption: "My only regret is that I never had anything to blab to the tabloids."

 

My heartfelt congratulations, Howard Garrett! This is your second win, and once again you can bask in the glory of being "One of the Funniest People Around".

There were lots of good captions submitted, and quite a few, I thought, were funnier than my rather tame original caption. Here are the ones that almost made it:

"Stop standing there and do something to get me out of here!" (by Anne Noonan)

"Who's standing on my catheter?" (by Dale Stout)

"Can we just take one last selfie?" (by Levi)

"It was the damn ED pill!" (by Joe Flynn) [ED=Erectile Dysfunction]

"Get the hell out of here. I'm missing the Jerry Springer Show." (also by Howard Garrett)

"I've prepared for this moment and I'm ready to go. Nurse, bring me my bed pan." (by Cary Antebi)

 

Good captioning, everyone. Be on the lookout for Contest No. 73 -- it'll be showing up real soon.

Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 71


                                      " Holds 100 fortune cookies."

                                                    (by Jo Pette)

 

         My original caption: "Oh yes, sir, I guarantee it's a genuine Ming vase."

 

Congratulations, Jo Pette -- you finally made it into the sacred inner circle of winners! At long last you have earned the right to be considered one of the funniest people around.

There were many interesting captions submitted -- and thanks for keeping them (mostly) politically correct! After I posted this contest drawing, I heard from people who were concerned that I would probably get many racially-offensive captions. But you all stayed on top of the situation -- in fact, the most offensive caption was probably my own original one!

These were some of the other captions that I was seriously considering for top prize:

"Believe me, that is NOT one of my vases!" (by Anne Noonan)

"Of course it's made in China. Do you know anything that isn't?" (by Cary Antebi)

"That's not for sale, it's my cookie jar." (by Dale Stout)

"Comes with ancient Chinese curse . . . 33% tax." (also by Cary Antebi)

Thanks for participating. Be on the lookout for the next contest. It'll be coming up soon.
