Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 4

Well, I've been on vacation and away from my home computer for about a month. Hope you didn't notice, as I kept up regular postings to my archives while I was away.

But now that I'm back, I'm definitely ready to tackle another Cartoon Caption Contest. It starts right now.

You can click here for full rules and regulations, but briefly, here they are:

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 'Comments' underneath the current drawing. Then (2) scroll down past all the other comments and type in your name and your caption in the spaces provided. Then (3) enter the anti-spam security word that assures me that you're a human being and not a machine, and (4) click 'Submit'. There is no limit on the number of captions you can submit for each drawing.

Entries will be accepted and posted for one week for each contest, after which a winner will be announced and the winning caption will be printed. Below that I will also print my original caption.

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).

New contests will appear at very irregular intervals in the future.

Hope you all have fun with this one!



"I don't mind the in-box, but I hate it when he asks me to take a letter."

"Worst corporate merger ever."

"Did you ever get the feeling management was watching you?"

Should we put something in the inbox just to cheer him up?

"He says his partners promised him a seat on the Bar"

He keeps putting his drink requests in that box. I don't understand why he just doesn't tell me what he wants.

He doesn't seem to understand that the box is for my tip.

"I can't complain, he's a good tipper!"

"Yeah,......Frank got tired of bar-hopping , ........ looks like he made his decision"

" So, Al finally made the decision to move in.... yeah, we gave him the happy hour rate"

"yeah, tenant 4 will take an order of mozzarella sticks, a vodka martini.... and new toner for his printer."

He's famous for his multitasking.

"It started with a three martini lunch, but he's a classic overachiever"

Hey, I'd rather this guy than all the jerks with their beeping laptops and noisy cellphones.

"He considers his new title Chief of Barley/Hops Relationships."

I missed the deadline. Maybe you could mention the cutoff date in your invitation to participate.
I was stumped originally, but looking at it later, I was going to submit a couple of things:
1 - He was laid off six months ago, but still can't believe it.
2 - He was laid off six months ago, but he said he'd wait for his recall notice here.
3 - He's out of work, but feels his best job stimulus is Cutty Sark.
4 - He says he's doing it to claim an income tax deduction.
5 - He's out of a job, but says he's expecting a call from Tim Geithner.
I could do a few more riffs about Obama economics, etc., but I'd only be trying your patience and goodwill.

Good idea about the cut-off date, Ed, and I'm going to include a date and time in the future.
I liked most of your captions, especially the "recall notice" and the "income tax deduction".
Thanks -- and no more sleeping at the switch, please.
