Contest No. 159 starts right now (a little early because of the pandemic).
Briefly, here are the details: Usually, I supply a drawing of one of my old cartoons that has never been published, leaving off my caption. For this contest only, I’m supplying a new drawing. You are invited to supply your funniest captions. Simply (1) click on “Add New Comment” on the bottom of this posting. Then (2) scroll down past any other submitted captions and type in your name and your caption in the spaces provided. You will also be asked to verify that you are a human being and not a robot — please follow the instructions in the “Captcha” box. 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.
The cut-off time and date for you to send in your captions is midnight Tuesday, April 21, 2020 (it’s a little more than a week, for this contest only). After that, the winner will be announced and the winning caption will be posted. I will be the sole judge and the winning caption will be the one I judge to be the funniest one submitted. Again, for this special contest only, I am not supplying an old cartoon of mine, so I do not have any original caption to reveal.
Below is the drawing that needs your funny captions.
Wait . . . is that really a coronavirus on a psychiatrist’s couch? Yes, it is. Why it’s there is for you to figure out. Is the virus feeling a little paranoiac, like “the whole world seems to be trying to avoid me”? Has it been complaining because “social distancing seems very anti-social to me”? Or is it simply confused, like “what’s with all the masks and gloves, anyway”? You’re the psychiatrist in this case and I can’t wait to see what you have to say to your patient. Let it all out! Maybe a little humor can help beat this monstrosity.
