Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 40

"She's definitely contributing to global warming."

(by Cary Antebi)


My original caption: "I like her frontal system!"


Congratulations, Cary Antebi, this is your tenth winning caption, so here at Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest you definitely deserve the title of one of the funniest people around.

Well, I guess we were all on the same wavelength here: cold fronts, warm fronts, hot fronts, her front! Even though a few of the captions submitted were very close to my original caption, I went with Cary Antebi's "global warming" slant. It just barely beat out Caryn's excellent caption, "I have 8 more hours of this on tape!"

Other captions that were in the running:

"Cold fronts, warm fronts . . . . . . heck, I'm only interested in her front." (by Tom Nelson)

"You've got to admit it . . . she's got great statistics." (by Cary Antebi)

"TV is great for keeping us abreast of the weather, don't you think?????" (by Dom Mancino)

And then there was Levi's caption: "I hope the weather will be good for our gay wedding this weekend, and I wish this news show would hire some better looking weather reporters!"  Actually, this was a very nice try and certainly showed a great deal of original out-of-the-box thinking — but it just fell short as a winner.

Contest No. 41 will be up before you know it — keep up the good work!
