Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 164

“In other news, spontaneous rigor mortis continues to plague the tri-state area.”

                                                (by Rich Wolf)


My original caption: “ATTENTION, TAX CHEATERS . . . !”


Good work, Rich Wolf — this is your eighth win, and you can once again bask in the glory of being one of the funniest people around. Congratulations!

Lots of election captions this time, and of course a few on the pandemic. Unfortunately, none of them made it to the top.

Here are the other captions that almost made the grade:

” . . . and that’s tonight’s news. We tell it like it is, so you can sit back and relax!” (by Brendan Gannon)

“We know little about the corona virus but doctors are now saying you can catch it from your local anchor man.” (by Cary Antebi)

“Give it a try . . . the newest craze . . . ‘Planking for seniors’!” (by Kay Ralph)

“A relaxation exercise for these difficult times: tense up, tense up, tense up . . . good! Now relax. I said, relax. Are you okay, sir? (by Sharon)

“Coming up, signs that you may be getting too much iron.” (by Keith Huie)


A new contest will be up in a few short weeks — thanks for keeping those captions coming!
