Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 22


“This is going to look great hanging up in my old room!” (by Melissa)

My original caption: “And look, it’s ‘Magna Cum Laude’, whatever that means!”

Congratulations, Melissa — you have joined the ranks of one of the funniest people around.

Other captions I was considering for top honors:

“It says: Thank you for your participation in the Psychology Department’s research study on mock diplomas given to students who didn’t actually graduate. You and your parents will be monitored for the next few moments for any reaction. We look forward to seeing you in Psychology 101 again next year.” (by Sharon)

“Remind me again . . . what did I major in?” (by Cary Antebi)

“This came out great. It looks like a real diploma.” (by Kittyasher)

Thanks, everybody, for participating — there’ll be a new contest in a couple of weeks.
