Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 149

          The first question is simply verifying your gender, Miss McCoy . . .

                    so I will just delete your ‘If Required’ response!”

                                         (by Kay Ralph)


My original caption: “Congratulations! Your resume is going to be made into a major motion picture!”


Congrats, Kay Ralph, on this, your third win! Once again you have earned the distinction of being recognized as one of the funniest people around.

Not too many submissions this go-around, captioneers — are you on vacation? Here are the other captions that made me laugh — or should I say, made me snicker?:

“The film is called ‘Rescue At Sea’, and you must be able to stay afloat for 12 hours.” (by Brendan Gannon)

“Good morning. I am Mr. Weinstein. You’re hired.” (by Rich Wolf)

“Your dressing room will be 38D. Does that sound about right?” (by Charles Vaughan)

Contest No. 150 will be posted in just a few short weeks. Thanks for keeping those funny captions coming.


  1. Thank you, Mr. Stein. I am
    Thank you, Mr. Stein. I am honored, once again …

    I just didn’t feel inspired to come up with anything this time. But the winning caption was far better than anything I would have submitted! Good work!
