My original caption: "I see that prison hasn't affected your sense of humor."


Congrats, Gayden Wren. This is a big first victory for you, so you can now officially bask in the glory of being one of the funniest people around. Make the most of it!

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

"Sure, you crack me up, but obviously you didn't crack the judge up." (by Sharon)

"I see you have been applying the Rogaine I sent you." (by Jo Pette)

"When did you shave your head?" (by Rich Wolf)

"Has someone upset you dear, you're very Grouchy today?" (by ken wilkinson)

"Gee honey, I've heard of the witness protection program, but never for someone in prison." ( by Ronn Roxx)


Good work once again, captioneers. Look for Contest No. 140 in just a few short weeks.

Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 139

Contest No. 139 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, October 16, 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.
