Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 10

Cartoon Caption Contest No. 10 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 August 17th.

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. I promised you an easy one, and what could be easier than Moses and the ten commandments? If I remember correctly, one of the original commandments was "Thou Shalt Come Up With Extremely Funny Captions". So get going, and good luck! captioncontest10.jpg

    The 11th Commandment says “Thou must not stand in the hot sun listening to someone reading the 10 commandments.”

    Can’t we just be God’s friend on Facebook and call it a day?
    That’s too long to Tweet!
    You know, a Kindle would weigh a lot less.
    Couldn’t you have printed that on something more eco-friendly?

    Moses, you sound like you’re just making these commandments up impromptu. I bet there’s nothing really written on that tablet!

    “That’s all you’ve got for our suffering; ËœTake two tablets and call me in the morning?
    We’ll accept them if we get a second pair free with only additional shipping and handling.
    You’d think they’d come with wheelies if we have to schlep them for 40 years.

    “Yeah, OK, Ten Commandments — but where’s the bagels and cream cheese we asked for?
    “If it’s only Ten Commandments how come the manual is so thick?”
