Writing Humor — Creative Caption Contest

Here are the results of the Pirate Cartoon Caption Contest featuring the artwork of Dan Rosandich.

There were lots of great lines, making the judging difficult.  Congratulations to the winners.

Our next caption contest will be announced on April 1.

And mid-month, our next Joke Writing Contest will be announced on April 15.

Here are the top lines:


You have lost a leg, a hand and an eye… and you want to know if this will hurt?
     Tim Dumas, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA


So, what do you do for a living?
     Les Harden, Brisbane, Australia


How long have you worked for Disney?
     Cindy Tebo, Catawissa, Missouri, USA
HONORABLE MENTION (in random order)

You picked a bad day to be Johnny Depp’s stand in.
Since I quit caffeine I haven’t had to hand out any more eye patches.
One more gold filling and the buried treasure will be in your mouth!
Novocain, gas or rum?
I’m lucky…I can put my hook down before rubbing my eyes.
You make me suffer from hook envy.
Want to hook up later?
One tooth can be saved, but the other two must walk the plank.
Painless dentistry…ha! That’s for gentleman pirates!
They say size doesn’t matter, but your hook IS bigger than mine.
Spit your teeth out and open wide.
How often do you floss your tooth?
Say, I bet you have a mean right hook!
I know you get lonely at sea, but please remove your hand from my leg before I hurt you.
Buccaneering, gunrunning and plundering…I tried them all but the money wasn’t as good as dentistry.
Well if you can’t pay…the next best thing I can do is give you some pain medication and a set of Billy Bob teeth.
Well, I’ve never had anybody ask if they could have this hook, but if it reminds you so much of the one you had as a baby, I guess I could make an exception!
