Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 192

“I’m guessing calling security won’t work?”

(by Rich Wolf)


My original caption: “Miss Foster, send in someone I can damn with faint praise.”


Congratulations once again, Rich Wolf, on this, your lucky 13th victory. You were sort of on a roll recently with three consecutive wins in Contest Nos. 187, 188 and 189, and now here you go again. I guess there’s no question that you are definitely one of the funniest people around.

Here are the other caption entries which were under serious consideration for top honors:
