Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 83

   “I am proud to introduce John Fafushnick who will discuss Gender Confusion.”

                                                 (by Howard Garrett)


My original caption: ” . . . a man we deeply respect and admire . . . a man who really needs no further introduction . . . “


No Gender Confusion here — it’s a big fifth win for Mr. Howard Garrett! Congratulations, Howard, once again you can assume the title of “One of the funniest people around”.

Some of the other submitted captions that I was considering for top honors:

” . . . and in our newest category, the Equality Awards, the woman who has always been my right hand man . . . ” (by Bruce Morgenstern)

“And now I’ll bring up Sharon who has the financial report from last month to share with us. Translation: Bathroom break!” (by Brad Labanowitz)

“And now with a very loooong rebuttal, our chairwoman.” (by Cary Antebi)

“Our next speaker is here to talk about sexual harassment, which is something that I wish I had known before I asked what she was doing after tonight’s meeting.” (by John Platt)


I’ll be posting a new contest shortly, so keep those inventive, whimsical captions coming in. Thanks.
