Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 106

                                         “Polly want your wallet.”

                                                    (by Marc)


My original caption: “It’s nothing but ‘Polly want a cracker, Polly want a cracker’ all day and all night.”


Nice going, Marc — this is your second win. Congratulations on proving once again that you’re one of the funniest people around!

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

“He was supposed to be a parakeet!” (by Anne Noonan)

“I think I fed her too many crackers.” (by Kelasher)

“The only time he’s quiet is Thanksgiving Day!” (by Tim Collins)

“Polly wanted a lot of crackers.” (by Sharon)

“Polly wants a cracker . . . and everything else in the refrigerator.” (by Cary Antebi)

“What does an 800-lb parrot say? Whatever he wants to say.” (also by Cary Antebi)


Good work, captioneers! Thanks for participating — look for the next contest in a couple of weeks.
