Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 119

                “Honey, I need a new electric shaver — this one is broken.”

My original caption: “Sorry — you have the wrong generation.” 


Wow, ken wilkinson, this makes two winners in a row! Congratulations again — without a doubt you are one of the funniest people around.

There was a big quantity of captions from all of you this time, but what in the world happened to the quality? As I was making my final run through the submissions, I could barely find any to even consider for a winner. Dare I say it once again? In my humble opinion, I think my original caption, as bad as it was (it must have been bad, because it was never bought) was probably better than most of the entries. Let’s all of us try to take it up a notch, okay?

Anyway, here are the other captions that were under consideration for top honors:

“What time do you eat dinner? I’ll call you back.” (by Susan Canaan)

“Yes, I’m Harry Meismendelfalinfeffersolakofsky . . . but you have the wrong number.” (by Cary Antebi)

“I’m calling on my land-line phone, I don’t have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or Skype, and …I don’t even know what I’m talking about!” (also by Cary Antebi)

“So, what are you wearing?” (by Mel Tannenbaum)

“911? Yes, it’s an emergency! I’m stuck in the past.” (by sharon)

Sharpen those caption-writing pencils, folks — a new contest will be up in just a couple of weeks. And don’t get discouraged — remember it’s all supposed to be fun!
