Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 149

Contest No. 149 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. You will also be asked to verify that you are a human being and not a robot. Please follow the instructions in the "Captcha" box. 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, July 23, 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.

"We have a great part for you as the 'other woman'."

Looking at you, I can tell you are well qualified for the

"I see by your application you're a woman."

"I see you have no experience with computers, can't type and had five jobs in the past year. You're hired."

"I think you mean 'me also' honey, not 'me too'."

"So why did you leave Dewey, Harassem and Howe?"

"Good morning. I am Mr. Weinstein. You're hired."

"I'm afraid your NEW, RED DRESS and BOOB JOB, are lost on me, Miss Lediett...
However, your NASAL TWANG is coming through, CRYSTAL CLEAR!"

"I'll take your word for it ... that you resemble MARILYN MONROE,
but, you definitely SOUND like FRAN DRESCHER!"

"No, Miss Brown ... being a Beauty School GRADUATE
does NOT give you the Edge, for this Intellectual Role!"

"The first question is simply verifying your
gender, Miss McCoy ...
so I will just delete your 'If Required' response!"

"To play the lead role of DOLLY ... I'm afraid SINGING, is mandatory!"

"Being Dubbed the next MILEY CYRUS, when you Twerked
at the Office Party ... DOES NOT make YOU a Shoo In,
for the part of Miley, in her life story."

"Now, Ms. Bell, for some clarification on your
Secretarial Application ...
For SHORT HAND ... You entered - "Yes, but LONG fingers!"
For FILING ... You entered - "Only when my nails need it!"
So, Would I be correct in assuming ...
When you entered - TYPE - "O" ... You were indicating
your Blood Type???"

Your dressing room will be 38D. Does that sound about right?

"Yes, Aunt Dot, you do look quite haughty ... Sorry,
but, there is no CALL for 'PROFESSIONAL SNOB' Extras."

"So ... you feel your qualifications as a Speech Therapist,
would be beneficial for the 'BOTOXED' Stars?"

You are well-stacked, I mean well-qualified for the job.

“The part to sing “June is busting out all over” was not intended to be so graphic!”

"I feel the role of Fiona ... in 'Fiona From the Flatlands,'
is just NOT your Cup of Tea!"

"I feel you're A Natural, Ms. Palmer, to narrate
this SAFETY FILM ... promoting the employment of AIR BAGS!"

"Your resume is not the only thing that speaks for itself."

"You're a little naive...the casting couch has nothing to do with fishing."

"Sorry to make you repeat your WRITTEN answers, Miss Fowler...
My glasses seem to keep FOGGING up!"
