Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 50

                   "It's a great place to store buoys and pool floats!"

                                               (by Melissa)


My original caption: "Just as we said in our ad -- it's a lovely home, overlooking the water."

Nice work, Melissa. This is your fourth win, so you can shout it from the rooftops: you're definitely one of the funniest people around! Congratulations.

Other entries I was considering for top honors:

"You did request a lake-front property. How much closer could you get?" (by Jonathan Stein)

"Maybe you would prefer to come back and inspect the house at low tide?" (by Cary Antebi)

And of course I greatly appreciated Dale Stout's caption: "I told you the owners were underwater." Very timely and appropriate!

Contest No. 51 will be coming up before you know it.


Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 50

Contest No. 50 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".

There is no limit on the number of captions you can enter 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 send in your captions for this contest is midnight Tuesday, May 21, 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:
