Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 163

“What about kids rights? They have the umbrella, beach chairs, and a blanket. We have the hot sun and sticky sand.”

                                                   (by Carole)


My original caption: “Do you know of any creative, state-of-the-art innovations in sand technology?”


Congratulations, first-time winner Carole! You now have bragging rights galore, because you’re officially one of the funniest people around!


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

“Six feet buddy . . . I don’t like the look of that rash on your pail!” (by Kay Ralph)

“Do you think there is a future in building sand castles?” (by Diane)

“How much more do we need to start our own sandblasting business?” (by Mary Rogers)

“Location, location, location.” (by Sagie Tvizer)

“Don’t dig too deep. You could end up getting the China flu!” (by Ronn Roxx)

“Thanks for helping with my parents. Next up: Let’s bury yours.” (by Dennis Bills)


A new contest will be here before you know it, Captioneers. Keep up the good work . . . and thanks for participating.
