Creative Humor Writing — Cartoon Caption Contest

We had fun with our Real Estate Cartoon Caption Contest this month.

Our next Cartoon Caption Contest will be announced on November 1.

New Joke Contests are announced mid-month.

Our contests feature the artwork of professional cartoonist Dan Rosandich.

Here are the top entries for the October contest.


The good news:  You can afford a home with an ocean view.   The bad news:  It’s the Antarctic.

So…do you want the mortgage rate I have on this page here in front of me…or do you want to take a chance on what’s in envelope #1.

HONORABLE MENTION (in random order)

  – I’m sorry, but Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac have fled the country and are now living on a Caribbean island.
  – I found a great, warm place for you–that’s grate spelled g-r-a-t-e.
  – I thought you might be interested in this historic old log cabin. It’s John McCain’s birthplace.  
  – It’s a nice A-frame.  Too bad your credit rating is F.
  – Let me say this about your financial situation–you’ll always know how many houses you own.
  – I know you expected to get more for your New York condo, but remember the Indians sold Manhattan for trinkets and beads.
  – Congratulations on your new home!  Wait…I just received an email…they have just started your foreclosure process.
  – Don’t worry about the numbers.  If things get bad, the government will step in and bail you out.
