Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 186

“Good. Simon says give me your wallet.”

(by Pat Foley)


My original caption: “I need money. The ball is now in your court.”


Congratulations, Pat Foley, on this, your third victory. Once again you can bask in the glory of being one of the funniest people around. I’d like to suggest a simple tweak to your otherwise excellent caption, Pat. Just add the word “Now” to the beginning of the second sentence, so that it reads “Good. Now Simon says give me your wallet.” A big improvement, in my humble opinion.

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

“My son needs his acceptance letter. Make it happen.” (also by Michael Lomazow)

“Your money or your Netflix password.” (by kelasher)
