Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 140

Contest No. 140 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 may 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 13, 2018.  

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.


Card reads: If you don’t vote blue, I’m not talking to you

Do you think your mother would like a card that mentions the house in Nantucket?

"It says, 'Mery Chrristmas.'"

I am looking for a card that says nothing, but means a lot.

"This one says 'Hoppy Berthday'. No wonder they're in the discount card section."

"I think 'Discount Cards-R-Us' was a mistake."

Do you have something a little less generic?

Do you have anything that says "I really really care, but not more than this 99 cent card."

I don't see one for my dog's Bar Mitzvah?

Do you have one that says "I think you're really cute, and what time do you get off work from the card shop?"

"I'll be darned! I can't find one for passing a stone!"

I don't see any cards that just say "Happy Birthday."

This one has a picture of a lake on it. If I send it to my boss, do you think he'll know I really just want him to go jump in it?

"How about an Anniversary Card for my Divorce?"

"Sorry, dear - A cat's Wedding Card, didn't make the cut!

"Although celebration-worthy . . . the passing of a stone is apparently, NOT an occasion!"

"Sorry Honey, there's none! You might be onto something,
though . . . maybe, you should start your own line
of "Thinking of Me," Cards."

"Mastering the POTTY is an occasion now?"

"This must be Canadian ... what is HAPPY POUTINE DAY?"

"How old is Trigger, in HORSE YEARS?"

"What . . . Happy Father's Day??"

"What is a hoppy bird day?"

I'm looking for "I'm sorry I voted against your candidate"

"This one says it's only fore dollers."

"This is how you break it to me . . . we're having triplets???"

"Really . . . A Graduation Card - for DETENTION SCHOOL?"

"Yes, Miss . . . I'm looking for a specific Congratulations
Card for a coworker -- with, Congratulations on the promotion,
Back Stabber!"

"Browsing fee? No, I was not aware!"

I have no idea what I am looking for, but when I find it I
will let you know.

"I'm looking for a sympathy card for a bad hair day."

"I've forgotten what occasion I want. Do you have a blank card?"
