Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 112

                       “That sounds more like a threat than an opinion!”

                                                 (by Tim Collins)


My original caption: “Just out of curiosity, sir — is there any substantial difference between your ‘Hell, no’ and your ‘No way, Jose’?”


A first-time victory for Tim Collins! Congratulations, Tim — you are now in that very exclusive club, with all the bragging rights that go with membership: you’re officially “one of the funniest people around’.

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

“Do you prefer to get your fake news in print, online or on television?” (by John Platt)

“This is not about our marriage!” (by Andrew Bramley)

“Actually, it is my business.” (by Cary Antebi)

“Do I look fat in this dress?” (also by Cary Antebi)

“OK, now you hold the clipboard and I’ll tell you what I think about you!” (also by Cary Antebi)

Thanks for participating, captioneers! The next contest will start in about a fortnight, so be on the lookout for it.
