This is the Brand New Splendid Marbles Photo Caption Contest. This should be a lot of fun – for me at least, and after all, that is what matters most and is why this site is still up and running.
The 100th Splendid Marbles Cartoon Caption Contest will be held at the end of January. I can promise a prize worth at least $25 – or a date with Snookie from “Jersey Shore” – whichever’s cheaper.
Voting is closed for the “Whale-Chute” caption contest.
Time to vote for the most excellent "Whale-Chute" caption.
Total Voters: 73
And, here’s the winner of the “Easter Island Homes” caption contest:
CUSTOMIZED T-SHIRTS, COFFEE MUGS & LAW ENFORCEMENT GRADE STUN GUNS* AVAILABLE! If you’ve won the contest, have been a finalist, OR, if you’ve submitted at least 20 captions over the past 6 months, I can create a customized shirt for you. (If you have a preference for another product, say a coffee mug, or a hat, or maybe you fancy bazookas or other types of field artillery, I can have CafePress plaster my cartoons with your logos on them as well – except maybe the weapons, I have to check on that.) Just send the cartoon by contest name, your caption and full name to: splendidmarbles at gmail dot com. (*Totally kidding about the stun guns.) And, you can order the one featured below right away!
Here’s a shot of the shirt featuring one of my swell contest cartoons:
CLICK HERE if you would like one of your very own (there are two more styles available and some designs I came up with a little while back, just click “Back to Shop” on the link.) By the way, the sign on the yard says: Splendid Marbles / inquire within.
And, check out more cartoons and the winners of the caption contest in the Splendid Marbles Cartoon Gallery.
By the way, you can also find my work at GoComics, in the Sherpa section.
While you’re here, sign up for my feed so you can get some of the best in original political cartoons and commentary.
Please note: I will send out an email on Mondays to remind you about the contest. I will NOT pester you at any other time during the week, and I will NOT share your email with another living soul – or organization run by the living. AND, I will take you off of the list as soon as you request to be removed – just send a reply email with “UNSUBSCRIBE” in the subject line. Thank you, and have fun with this week’s cartoon. (Please be advised: I reserve the right to remove comments that contain foul language.)
