Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 63

"First guy who comes in and actually tries to use this . . . I'm out of here."

                                         (by Cary Antebi)


My original caption: "I don't know why it is, but as soon as I sit at my new desk, I get this strange craving for a cigarette."


Congratulations again, Cary Antebi . This is your fourteenth win -- proving without a doubt that "you gotta be in it, to win it"!  Once more you have earned the right to be recognized as one of the funniest people around.

Here are some of the other captions I was kicking around for the top prize (one has nothing to do with smoking at all, and another one treats the desk as some sort of hallucination, I guess):

"Doctor, whenever my office is full of people, I get dizzy." (by Howard Garrett)

"Good morning, 'Smoke Beginners International' how may we help you?" (by Al Grand)

"The medication helped me quit smoking but there's some worrisome side effects." (by Sharon)

"Apparently I was taking too many smoking breaks." (by Kelasher)

Keep on the lookout for the next contest -- it'll be up real soon.

Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 63

Contest No. 63 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". Your caption (or captions) will be posted after I review your submission.

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, February 18, 2014.

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.

Below is the drawing that needs your caption.
