Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 49

                       "Have you ever considered being a 'yes' man?"

                                             (by Cary Antebi)


My original caption: "You say you left your last job because of an information explosion . . . "


Congratulations, Cary Antebi, you did it again! This is your 12th win, more than anybody else. You truly deserve the title of "one of the funniest people around".

I was also considering these two other Cary Antebi captions for top honors:

"Perhaps multitasking isn't your forte."

"I'm taking you off paper shredding duty."

These other captions were also under final consideration:

"We hope your second day at work will go more smoothly than your first ..." (by Levi)

"Sorry, we just hired a Safety Manager." (by Dale Stout)

Also, I have to admit that I still like my original caption, after all these years.

On another note, it looks like that pesky technical problem I've been having (where the comments/captions you submitted were being targeted as spam) has finally been solved. Whew! That took a long time!

Good work on the captions, folks -- new contest will be up shortly.


Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 49

Contest No. 49 starts right now.

Briefly, here are the details: I'll supply a drawing of one of my old cartoons that has never been published, leaving off my caption. You are invited to supply your funniest captions. Simply (1) click on "Add New Comment". Then (2) scroll down past any other submitted captions and type in your name and your caption in the spaces provided. Then (3) click "Save".

Note: After you save your caption, please check at the top of the page to make sure it has been accepted and is awaiting my approval for posting. If, instead of that, you get an "error" message stating that your caption, or comment, has triggered a spam alert and will not go through, then please email me at elilast@verizon.net to let me know about the problem. I think I have solved the "spam alert" problem, but this will be the first real test of it.

There is no limit on the number of captions you can submit for each drawing.

Entries will be accepted and posted for one week, after which a winner will be announced and the winning caption will be printed. Below that I will also print my original caption. The cut-off time and date for you to submit your captions for this contest is midnight Tuesday, April 9, 2013.

I will be the sole judge. The winning caption will be the one I judge to be the funniest one submitted (not necessarily the one that matches or comes closest to my original caption). Additional rules and regulations, for those of you who need such things, can be found here.

This is the drawing that needs your caption:
