Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No.16

Cartoon Caption Contest No. 16 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, 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 January 4, 2011.

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, selected because we just had our first blizzard of the season here in the northeast U.S. and, brrr, it's all snowy and cold outside.

    I know you walked a long way to see me because your feet hurt but didn’t anyone tell you my specialty is Ear, Nose and Throat not Podiatry?
