Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 50

Contest No. 50 starts right now.

Briefly, here are the details: I’ll supply a drawing of one of my old cartoons that has never been published, leaving off my caption. You are invited to supply your funniest captions. Simply (1) click on “Add New Comment”. Then (2) scroll down past any other submitted captions and type in your name and your caption in the spaces provided. Then (3) click “Save”.

There is no limit on the number of captions you can enter for each drawing. Entries will be accepted and posted for one week, after which a winner will be announced and the winning caption will be printed. Below that I will also print my original caption.

The cut-off time and date for you to send in your captions for this contest is midnight Tuesday, May 21, 2013.

I will be the sole judge. The winning caption will be the one I judge to be the funniest one submitted (not necessarily the one that matches or comes closest to my original caption). Additional rules and regulations, for those of you who need such things, can be found here.

This is the drawing that needs your caption:



  1. “You did request a lake-front
    “You did request a lake-front property. How much closer could you get?”

  2. ” If your a fisherman I could
    ” If you’re a fisherman I could stock it with fish!”

  3. 1. “Okay, maybe location
    1. “Okay, maybe location-location-location is not the most important thing in buying a house.”

    2. “We like to refer to it as the sunken living room.”

    3. “Maybe you would prefer to come back and inspect the house at low tide.”

    4. “Oh, did I fail to mention a river runs through it?”

    5. “And here is our wall to wall hot tub.”

  4. 1. “It’s really not a problem
    1. “It’s really not a problem if you jiggle the handle before you flush the toilet.”

    3. “Would you like to go to closing before or after the tide comes in?”

    4. “If you purchase it now, will thrown in the indoor pool for free.”

    5. “Just don’t plug anything into the wall sockets and you’ll be fine.”
