Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 144

                "Do you need me to explain Casual Fridays to you again?"

                                           (by Jack Brumagin)


My original caption: "Do you have a resume?"


Congratulations, Jack Brumagin, on your big first win. You beat out a big field of caption submissions, and you can now bask in the glory of officially being one of the funniest people around!

As I said, there were lots of funny entries this time, and it was difficult to single out just one. Here are the other captions I was considering -- three or four of them just narrowly missed out:

"Your credentials are impressive. Can you start immediately on the knight shift?" (by Eric Bjorklund)

"No, we do not discriminate against transroyal persons in our hiring process." (by David Grand)

"I'm sorry, sir, but the current king already has an heir." (by Gayden Wren)

"This isn't what corporate had in mind for dress down Fridays." (by Rich Wolf)

"It's come to my attention that you don't work well with others!" (by Tim Collins)

"I'm afraid there was a typo in the job posting. It should have read 'Loyalty is important to us'." (by David Hoddinott)

"Sorry, but I don't think you are the right fit here at Dairy Queen." (by Ronn Roxx)

"For qualifications . . . I see waving and giving orders. Sorry, but that job is already filled . . . by my wife!" (by Kay Ralph)

"It is a little overdone for Casual Fridays, Smithers." (also by David Hoddinott)

"I'm sorry, sir, but your son is not guaranteed the position once you retire." (also by Jack Brumagin)

That's it for this time. A new contest will be posted before you know it, so be on the lookout for it and keep those captioneering pencils sharpened.
