Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 53

       “You barge into my office just to tell me I forgot to go to our wedding?”

                                            (by Howard Garrett)


My original caption: “Miss Nagle, it has come to my attention that you are getting married on company time.”


Wow . . . congratulations are in order, Howard Garrett! You’ve entered many captions in these contests, and this is your first win. You are now officially one of the funniest people around!

Other captions that were under consideration:

“Don’t worry, I won’t miss it. I’ll catch the live stream.” (by Jonathan)

“You have a strange way of dressing for Casual Fridays.” (by Cary Antebi)

“Did I forget our anniversary again?” (by Kelasher)

And, incidentally, I had to have two of Sharon’s captions explained to me, because I have never watched the “Bachelor” TV show (in which, apparently, roses are handed out to competing suitors).

Nice work, all around! Another contest will be up shortly. Look for it . . . and thanks for participating.
