Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 204

“My answer is ‘yarr’.”

(by Diane Weisman)


My original caption: “It’s not that I don’t like you, Tom . . . ”


Congratulations, Diane Weisman, on this, your eighth victory! Your last win was in Contest No. 185, so persistence pays off . . . well, maybe not in money, but at least in the knowledge that you are once again one of the funniest people around.

Here are the other captions that were in serious contention:

“But what about law school?” (by Michael Lomazow)

“No, Randall, I don’t want to be your ‘biker chick’.” (by Pat Foley)

“First of all it’s wife not old lady.” (by Lee Lacewell)

“My answer to will I marry you, depends on if you are a Jet or a Shark.” (also by Diane Weisman)

“It’s not me, it’s you. You look like an idiot.” (also by Michael Lomazow)

“You would rent a tux for the ceremony . . . right?” (by Kay Ralph)

“Shiver me timbers bucko — I’m just not sure if I want to be your matey.” (by Gary)

“You only love me for my booty.” (by Mark S.)

“Yes, Donald, I’ll go to Sturgis with you.” (also by Pat Foley).  I’m not sure, Pat Foley, if this caption would be understood by anyone outside of the U.S.A. But it made me chuckle because ages ago my wife and I were auto-vacationing in the Western states and we quite by chance visited the gigantic annual motorcycle rally that takes place in the tiny town of Sturgis, South Dakota. It was mind-boggling!


Contest No. 205 will be posted soon enough, Captioneers, so keep on the lookout for it, and thanks for participating!
