Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 114

                 “Give me pills, lots of pills, and the starry skies above . . . “

                                                (by John Platt)


My original caption: “Gather ’round me, I’ll telllllll you my story . . . “


Well, you obviously all know your way around country songs. But John Platt’s caption gave it just the right twist, so he gets his thirteenth victory! Congratulations, John, once again you can bask in the glory of being one of the funniest guys around.

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

“I’ll be taking a short break between each set.” (by Sharon)

“So you want to hear about the windmills of my mind?” (also by Sharon)

“You’re obligated to stay for the entire hour, right?” (by Joe Kalb)

“My dogies won’t get along!” (by Tim Collins)

“I’m doing much better, doc. I used to have a banjo on my knee.” (by Cary Antebi)

“I want to sing my new song for you, ‘The Therapy Blues’.” (by mel tanenbaum)

Okay, captioneers, put down that git-box and let’s get seriously funny again. The next contest should be up in just a couple of weeks — keep your eyes peeled for it and bring on those those funny captions.
