Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 56

Contest No. 56 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.

There is no limit on the number of captions you can enter for each drawing. 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 for this contest is midnight Tuesday, September 24, 2013.

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 caption. Yes, this is another very old cartoon -- it goes back well over fifty years. Exactly how old is it? Here are a couple of clues: 1) All the guys are wearing hats! 2) I actually finished this drawing with a brush, a technique I was experimenting with long before I settled on Rapidograph and Micron pens!

I'm sure you can be funnier than my original caption. Go for it!


Look, Mac, I don't care who your wife is, I ain't buyin' you a baseball bat.
