Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 143

Contest No. 143 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, February 5, 2019.   

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.


"Mind if I ask you a personal, personnel question, babe!

"If you don't like my answers am I still eligible for unemployment compensation?"

"What would you say if I gave 'YOU' a $100 dollar hiring bonus!"

"Hi, Sweetheart. Any chance of getting a coffee?"

Thank you for letting me sit so close, I left my hearing aid at

"Hypothetically speaking ... would the CHOSEN applicant
be eligible for an ADVANCE on their pay?"

"Before we start, which position am I applying for again?"

"I want to make one thing CRYSTAL CLEAR, upfront, honey ...

Is that a miniature palm tree in the corner or your pet octopus?

"I was a president of a college...but then the government shut down Trump University."

"Before we begin ... have you ever heard of 'Undercover Boss'?
