Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 38

"This is going to be the best Grand Opening yet!"

(by Caryn)


My original caption: "Ah, well, another day, another dollar in the hole."

Congrats, Caryn! This is your third win, so you are clearly and undeniably one of the funniest people around.

My feed-back on this batch of captions? Well, egotistical as it sounds, I actually thought that my original caption was the best of the bunch. But since I couldn't very well pat myself on the back and give myself First Prize, I picked what I deemed to be the most "commercial" and professional of the submissions . . . and that was Caryn's.

Other captions that I was considering:

"When you told me you were a great closer, I had something completely different in mind." (by Levi).

"Don't forget, Johnson, the new inventory comes in tomorrow." (by Kelasher).

"Next week we are having our annual 'Fire Sale'." (by Robert Creamer).

The next contest will be coming up soon (but not as soon as the annual Fire Sale) — I'll try to make it an entertaining and fun challenge!
