Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 26

Cartoon Caption Contest No. 26 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 '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 and (3) click on 'Submit'. There is no limit on the number of captions you can submit for each drawing.

Because we're in a vacation period, this contest will be extended -- entries will be accepted and posted for two weeks. The cut-off time and date for you to submit your captions for this contest is midnight Tuesday, August 23, 2011. At that time 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).

Additional rules and regulations, for those of you who need such things, can be found here.

I promised you another beach scene, and here it is. Pretty straightforward -- nothing too unusual going on here. Let's see what interesting and funny gags you can come up with.



"You shouldn't have peed in his back yard."

Dad, if you hear a voice is coming from that shell it's really me. I just learned to be a ventriloquist.

1. "Another dropped call?"
2. "You can't connect. There's not wi-fi on the beach."
3. "Of course you can't hear anything from it. It's only a see shell."
4. "It keeps offering two months of free cable television if you call back today."
5. "I don' know how she does it but it's mom calling again, with another errand for you."

Want to borrow my iPhone?

See, I told you the shell phone has bad reception.

"The shell said I needed parental permission to use it."

You're not supposed to SHAKE it....you have to RUB it!!!!!

1. "What did you expect to hear from a shell you bought for a buck from a homeless man on the beach?"
2. "Pop, you forgot to take you medication again. Those voices you're hearing are coming from your head, not the shell!"
3. "Of course you can hear the ocean waves...the ocean's right behind you."
4." Don't take it personally dad. All sea shells curse these days."
5".Looks like someone has pulled the old 'Super Glue On The Sea Shell' prank again."

There is no way to fit an ocean wave in that little shell.
That doesn't look like the shell game they were talking about.

1. "Maybe the network's down."
2. "OK, give me a buck and I'll throw in the first month's service for free."
3."That's the 14th broken one today. The manufacturer should make a re-call."
4." You're supposed to hear the ocean, but it sounds more like my toilet bowl flushing."
5."Maybe it's on mute."

"The one I put your keys in had more spots than that one."
