Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 73

It’s another tie!


                        “Great, the ‘Divorce for Dummies’ book arrived.”

                                               (by Cary Antebi)

                                “It finally arrived — my divorce papers.” 

                                            (by Howard Garrett)


My original caption: “Oh, good — my do-it-yourself divorce kit!” (And, on an older version of the cartoon, my caption was “Just the usual stuff in the mail, dear . . . bills . . . coupons . . . my do-it-yourself divorce kit . . . “). Neither the longer version nor the shorter one was ever bought or published.


Congratulations, you two. This is your seventeenth win, Cary Antebi, and your third one, Howard Garrett. So I’ll just say it again for all to hear — you’ve got to be two of the funniest people around!

Here are the other captions that I was seriously considering for top honors:

“They say you may already be a winner — those liars.” (by Dale Stout)

“‘CELEBRATE ‘OUR’ WINNINGS FROM BETTING!’ The newest IRS pamphlet!” (by drmrs)

Don’t despair — a new contest will be coming up soon.
