Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 120

Contest No. 120 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. 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 caption. This is an equal opportunity contest!

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 is midnight Tuesday, July 4, 2017.

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.


Glad to see you are relaxed, my hostess skills are working

"An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth." No wonder this prison looks like a pirate ship!

The authorities threatened me with the death penalty. But, in my opinion I die a little every day just being here. After a short time in this insane and crazy place, I'm mostly dead anyway.

Every night the rats walk off with something, as my toothbrush, or my pencil, or my pictures, etc. The rats have more jail house supplies than I do.

Scarface (nickname), "You're a diamond in the rough." A "cut" above the rest, if you get my drift.

1st inmate: So, do you really like to enter cartoon caption
2nd inmate: Yes, the contests are "free," and I want to be
free. Besides, I am trying to learn to spell
words and use good grammar. A much better way
to impress people than using a gun or knife.

1st inmate: How many cartoon captions can you enter per
2nd inmate: For the Eli Stein contests, he encourages
multiple entries. So, it's like playing the
lottery, where maybe one entry will win. Maybe
he will put in a good word to my parole board.

"Wanna watch Shawshank again?"

So, what's new?
