Cartoon Caption Contests

Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 152


Contest No. 152 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, October 15, 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.






Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 151


         "OK, that was the part you'll forget. Now for the parts you'll ignore."

                                           (by Richard Wolf)

 

My original caption: "You have some kind of fuddy-duddy old fogey's disease."

 

A sixth win for Richard Wolf! Congrats, Richard, once again you have out-captioned everybody else and regained the title of "one of the funniest people around".

Here are the other captions I was seriously considering:

"The good news is your heart is like a 23 year old, but the bad news is you will probably out live your retirement money." (by Brendan Gannon)

"Mr. Smith, I have good news and bad news to tell you. The bad news is that you look lousy, the good news is there is nothing wrong with you." (by Diane)

"Well, I'm going to need a brighter light if you want me to find a hair up there!" (by Jeff Warwick)

"If I had what you have, I wouldn't worry about a second opinion!" (by Tim Collins)

"Mr. Wright, trust me . . . That examining light, is NOT stimulating Hair Growth!" (by Kay Ralph)

"For an extra $20 I can switch the light to 'tan' mode." (by RonRoxx)

 

Look for a new contest in just a few short weeks. Thanks for participating!

Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 150


    "And to think, just a few years ago they said Antarctica was inhospitable."

                                           (by Jonathan Stein)

 

My original caption: "I could never figure out why that Federal Census Bureau makes such a big fuss over counting people every ten years."

 

At long last, it's a big third win for Jonathan Stein (his last win was back in Contest No. 109). Congrats, Jonathan -- your name is once again enshrined in the annals of "one of the funniest people around".

My original cartoon and caption is actually about 30 or 40 years old. It's just a coincidence that there's another "big fuss" surrounding the current census -- but then again, there's probably some kind of controversy over the census every time it's conducted.

Here are the other captions that I was considering for top honors:

"I'm either going to read Kant's 'Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science', or just do nothing." (by Rich Wolf)

"Maybe we should get some cattle of something." (by Cary Antebi)

"This is not much of a wall, Senor!" (by Charles Vaughan)

"Are you fencing me in or fencing me out?" (by Diane)

Thanks to all you captioneers for participating. Look for the next Contest in just a few short weeks.

Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 149


          The first question is simply verifying your gender, Miss McCoy . . .

                    so I will just delete your 'If Required' response!"

                                         (by Kay Ralph)

 

My original caption: "Congratulations! Your resume is going to be made into a major motion picture!"

 

Congrats, Kay Ralph, on this, your third win! Once again you have earned the distinction of being recognized as one of the funniest people around.

Not too many submissions this go-around, captioneers -- are you on vacation? Here are the other captions that made me laugh -- or should I say, made me snicker?:

"The film is called 'Rescue At Sea', and you must be able to stay afloat for 12 hours." (by Brendan Gannon)

"Good morning. I am Mr. Weinstein. You're hired." (by Rich Wolf)

"Your dressing room will be 38D. Does that sound about right?" (by Charles Vaughan)

Contest No. 150 will be posted in just a few short weeks. Thanks for keeping those funny captions coming.

                           "I can't wait to get out of here next week.

                          I really need to update my Myspace page!"

                                          (by Ronn Roxx)

 

My original caption: "Yes, for a while there, I was on the round-up-the-usual-suspects 'A' list."

 

Congratulations, Ronn Roxx, on this, your third victory! Once again, your Myspace page can announce to the world that you are one of the funniest people around.

These are the other caption submissions that I was seriously considering for top honors:

Winner of Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 147


                               "Isn't this, I don't know, overkill?"

                                             (by John Platt)

                       "The gun is kind of overkill, don't you think?"

                                             (by Rich Wolf)

 

My original caption: "This isn't at all the way I imagined it would be."

 

Okay, a tie it is. Congratulations, John Platt (fifteenth win) and Rich Wolf (fifth win)! Their captions were quite similar, but I know there was no sneaky copying or collusion involved, because I didn't post any captions at all until May 24th, long after both of these entries were submitted. So, John and Rich, the two of you are definitely once again in that honored club: you are two of the funniest people around.

For some reason, many of you captioneers ignored the gun in the Grim Reaper's hand, and then just treated this as a simple GR situation. And a few of you even had the GR speaking, which was a plausible interpretation, I guess.

Here are the other captions that I was seriously considering for top prize:

"Well, definitely my money." (by Gayden Wren)

"Yes! Yes! I've cheated Death many times but that's no reason to make this personal!" (by Brendan Gannon)

"Can we at least wait to see if the Rogaine actually works!?" (by Ronn Roxx)

"Seems you're buying me a shiny new scythe." (by Sagie Tvizer)

"You are too late, my wife took it all, 'body and soul'." (by Diane)

"This has been a great near-death experience. Catch you later?" (by Sharon)

 

The next contest will be posted soon -- keep on the lookout for it. Thanks for participating.
