Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 25

It's another tie!


“It was rough going there for a while, but I finally snagged him.” (by Cary Antebi)

“It's safe to go back in the water now!” (by Melissa)

My original caption: “Isn't it a beauty?”

Congrats, Cary (a seven-time winner) and Melissa (a two-time winner). You're definitely two of the funniest people around.

There were two other captions I was considering: “Congratulate me. We're all set for dinner tonight!!!” (by Howie Garrett) and “Break out the white wine . . . we're having fish tonight.” (another one by Cary Antebi).

Hmmm . . . maybe I should have extended the deadline for this contest, because for a few days there it was impossible for anyone to submit captions. Well, I finally decided to let it end as scheduled. I also decided on the drawing for the next contest . . . and it'll be another beach scene! So keep your swimsuits handy and get ready to jump into Contest No. 26 shortly.
