Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 45

“So you want to know if I go to after Christmas sales for toys for next Christmas?”

(by Douglas A. Bennett)


My original caption: “You’re not wearing a wire, are you?”


Congratulations on your win, Douglas A. Bennett. You have now joined that elite group — you’re officially one of the funniest people around.

Once again, very few people submitted entries. Maybe the caption by “Anonymous” expressed everybody’s sentiment — in view of the massacre at the Connecticut grade school, ” . . . it just doen’t feel like the right time to ‘HO HO’”.
