Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 136

                                     "Did we pay for 18 holes?"

My original caption: "I warned you it's a tough course."


It's a big second win for Sagie Tvizer (first one was in Contest No. 121). Congrats, Sagie -- once again you've proved to be one of the funniest people around!

Slim pickings this time -- apparently golf is not the sport of captioneers. Anyway, here are the other captions that almost made it:

"It's the new speed round. We'll be done in an hour!" (by Brendan Gannon -- by the way, this would have been the winner if the printing on the flag was "1 AND 2", instead of "1 OR 2")

"Did you book us on the 'Kiddie Course', doofus?" (by Kay Ralph)

"I'm one or three over par." (by Gayden Wren)

"It gets easier on the back-nine!" (by Tim Collins)

Thanks for participating, and be on the lookout for Contest No. 137, coming up shortly.

Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 136

Contest No. 136 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. Also, no captions at all will be posted for the first few days of each contest. This is to give everybody a chance to submit their spontaneous, gut-instinct caption without fear of discovering that it was ripped off by somebody else's similar spontaneous, gut-instinct caption. This is an equal opportunity contest!

There is no limit on the number of captions you may enter for each drawing, but I will only post and consider the first 15 captions from any contestant. 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 is midnight Tuesday, July 24, 2018.  

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 funny captions.
