Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 9

Cartoon Caption Contest No. 9 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 ‘Comments’ underneath the current drawing. Then (2) scroll down past all the other comments and type in your name and your caption in the spaces provided. Then (3) enter the anti-spam security word that assures me that you’re a human being and not a machine, and (4) click ‘Submit’. There is no limit on the number of captions you can submit for each drawing.

Entries will be accepted and posted for one week for each contest, 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 is midnight, Tuesday July 20th. 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.

Here’s the new drawing. Good luck!

    We have bedbugs in our bedroom. How much would you want for the wife and me for 3 nights?

    Thank goodness you opened the trunk. My last customer asked me to get into the trunk to show him how much room there is for storage. He closed the trunk and forgot about me.

Welcome to the Eli Stein Cartoon archive. To begin, read my introduction and personal notes, and then please look at the cartoons, which are categorized by either decade, publication name or topic. I’ve included some personal comments, memories and photos below many of the cartoons. I’ll be adding cartoons, memories and photos ad infinitum.
