Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 155


Contest No. 155 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. You will also be asked to verify that you are a human being and not a robot. Please follow the instructions in the "Captcha" box. 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, January 7, 2020.   

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.






Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 154


         "This better be good kid . . . You took me away from Barbara Eden."

                                             (by Kay Ralph)

 

My original caption: "You get three wishes, plus a very generous benefits package."

 

Okay, Kay Ralph, your multiple entries paid off again. Congratulations on your fourth victory. Once again, you can proudly boast of being one of the funniest people around.

These are the other entries that were in the running:

"Sorry, I am on vacation, try again." (by Diane)

"Who were you expecting . . . MR. CLEAN?" (also by Kay Ralph)

"Is it really worth a wish to watch me do the Macarena?" (by Sharon)

"You guys are so demanding. I should have never left my lava lamp!" (by Cary Antebi)

"Sorry pal, you only get three wishes with Aladdin's lamp . . . this is Alfonso's." (also by Cary Antebi)

 

Note to Ronn Roxx on his entry "3 wishes? That's my brother. I'm the 'three knish' genie."  Great caption, Ronn, but only if you use the word "knishes" instead of just "knish". Sometimes a little slip like that makes all the difference.

Note to Kay Ralph on practically all of her entries: Why all the capital letters, Kay? You really don't need to SHOUT OUT to emphasize a thought. You'd do much better if you use the caps only when absolutely necessary.

 

Thanks for participating, Captioneers. A new contest will be posted in no time at all, so be on the lookout for it.
