Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 126

Contest No. 126 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, gut-instinct caption. This is an equal opportunity contest!

There is no limit on the number of captions you can 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, November 14, 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.


I see a long life line...and more than one love line... and twenty bucks in my future!

"It's really not a gift, I have the internet 'People-search' app!"

"You're about to meet a stranger and give her money for telling you stuff anyone can figure out"! "The spirts have spoken!"

"It's not all that hard, you are my daughter!"

"I must be having a 'senior-gypsy' moment, I'm not getting a thing!"

"If I knew now, what you knew then, I'd be retired!"

"I forgot to switch to day-light saving time, so all my predictions are off!"

"And I see, I see....., I see you need a manicure too!"

"If you knew what I know, you'd know I don't know the half of it!"

"I used to be a financial adviser on Wall Street, this is about the same, only easier!"

"Let me put it this way, ever since Trump won, 'woman's intuition' is making a comeback, big-time!"

"Believe it or not, but I was one of Hilary's top advisors, until last November!"

"I see no future in your future."

"Nothing is ever going to happen to you."

"I see death and some taxes in your future."

"It's not easy reading palms when you have dyslexia."

"I can't read anything. When was the last time you used a hand sanitizer?"

"You really should switch to M&Ms...They melt in your mouth, not in your hands."

"I sense your husband is a real bloodsucker...No wait, that's just a mosquito bite you have there."

"A real smooth character named Jergen will be coming into your life. Yes, Jergen Lotion."

"Warm hands mean cold heart. I guess you won't be leaving me a tip."

"That's $45 for the thumb and $5 for each additional digit."

"Of course I'm for real...which is more than I can say for your nails."

I see you coming back on a regular basis at $29.95 an hour.

I`ve been doing this for years and you have the softest hands I`ve ever felt. Tell me your secret... No, wait. Let me guess!

I see the "hand" writing on the wall.

“You will beat a tall, dark stranger in the city council election.”

You remind me of a song, "I want to hold your hand, I want to hold your hand."

"Your future doesn't look bright. I suggest you pay your overdue electric bill."

"How short is your life line? Let's just say, you have to pay in advance!"

"Life line...good. Heart line...great. Landline...crummy! Time to get a cell phone."

If you don't hand me some more money, I'm afraid your future may get out of hand.

I see through your hands that you have a good checking account. You should be a good sharer.

"I see the patter of little feet in your near future. I suggest you stock up on mouse traps."

‘Hmmm...I see a tree on a sandy beach in Florida...

Is that the spot? Is that where the itch is?
