Winner of Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. 210

“My credit rating is a perfect score of 100.”

(by Kelly)


My original caption: “How much of a grace period will there be before you send out the hired guns?”


Congratulations, Kelly, on this, your lucky thirteenth victory! It’s been a while since your last win, way back in 2020 in Contest No. 165, when you were entering captions under the name of Kelasher. Welcome back into the fold — once again you can let the world know that you are one of the funniest people around.

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

“I know I don’t have a good credit rating but isn’t ‘cross my heart and hope to die’ good enough?” (by Rich)

“Didn’t you have hair when I first applied for my home equity loan?” (by Lee Lacewell)

“If I get a mother-in-law/room addition loan, how many payments would I need to miss before you repossess her? (also by Lee Lacewell)


Thanks for participating, Captioneers! Be on the lookout for Contest No. 211, which will be coming up before you know it.
