Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 202

“It’s called a comb-over; you really should try it.”

(by Lee Lacewell)


My original caption: “You’re a fund-raiser? Is there a lot of money in that?”


Congratulations, Lee Lacewell, on this, your very first victory! You are now entitled to let the rest of the world know that you are officially one of the funniest people around.

Here are the other captions that were seriously in the running:

“If you invest with me, someone will get rich.” (by Michael Lomazow)

“I thought that Friday was dress down day.” (by Diane Weisman)

“So, what topics should we avoid?” (by Mark S.)

“You’ve always thought too horizontally, that’s the problem. If you think vertically, your hair will follow.” (by Jonathan Stein)

“There are the ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots’. For example . . . I have hair.” (also by Lee Lacewell)

Fear not, Captioneers, the next contest will appear in due time. Thanks very much for participating!
