May 2017 Cartoon Punchline Competition

 

Well, the inaugural EEWeb Cartoon Punchline Competition in May attracted a lot of wonderful entries (see the comments below). These entries really had the EEWeb Elves scratching their heads trying to decide on the winner. Eventually, after much discussion and debate, they decided that the winning entry was "I'm ex-static!" by EEWeb community member Nicole DiGiose.

A full-sized copy of this cartoon, adorned with Nicole's winning caption and signed by the artist is winging its way to her as we speak. Meanwhile, the runners up -- in no particular order (the EEWeb Elves aren’t very good at "order") -- were as follows:

Aubrey Kagan

"Are you positive?"

Todd Hayden

"So you're going to stop being so negative?"

Ivan Cowie

"Great! That leaves me in charge around here!"

David Ashton

"Good. You needed to be more grounded."

    I'm submitting this one on behalf of Nicole who is away at the moment -- but she came up with the following which I thought was great: Betsy: "I'm ex-static!" I so wish I'd thought of this one myself.

    Here's another one Nicole came up with: Betsy: "I'm shocked!" Now I'm desperately trying to think of something clever for myself :-)

    Call me old school in engineering fashion, but I find an ESD grounding wrist bracelet is always in style.
