Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 136

Contest No. 136 starts right now.

Briefly, here are the details: I’ll supply a drawing of one of my old cartoons that has never been published, leaving off my caption. You are invited to supply your funniest captions. Simply (1) click on “Add New Comment”. Then (2) scroll down past any other submitted captions and type in your name and your caption in the spaces provided. Then (3) click “Save”.

Your caption (or captions) will be posted after I review your submission. Also, no captions at all will be posted for the first few days of each contest. This is to give everybody a chance to submit their spontaneous, gut-instinct caption without fear of discovering that it was ripped off by somebody else’s similar spontaneous, gut-instinct caption. This is an equal opportunity contest!

There is no limit on the number of captions you may enter for each drawing, but I will only post and consider the first 15 captions from any contestant. Entries will be accepted and posted for one week, after which a winner will be announced and the winning caption will be printed. Below that I will also print my original caption.

The cut-off time and date for you to send in your captions is midnight Tuesday, July 24, 2018.  

I will be the sole judge. The winning caption will be the one I judge to be the funniest one submitted (not necessarily the one that matches or comes closest to my original caption). Additional rules and regulations, for those of you who need such things, can be found here.

Below is the drawing that needs your funny captions.

  3. This is what we get for
    This is what we get for playing on a Trump golf course. At first he said that he doesn’t see any reason why it “would” be hole #1 but then he changed it to “wouldn’t”. Guess they’re just hedging their bets. Must be Trump’s way of making America’s golf courses great again!

  4. “Next to the Clown and the
    “Next to the Clown and the Windmill, this is the easiest hole on the course!”

  5. “My problem is my I can drive
    “My problem is I can drive the greens, but I putt the same way!”

  6. “Golf is a very honest game,
    “Golf is a very honest game, they always ask you what your lie is!”

  7. “It’s one if you par, two if
    “It’s one if you par, two if you bogey, and straight to the 19th hole if you double-bogey.”

    “It’s how many hundreds we’re billing clients while playing 18 holes.”
