February Cartoon Caption Contest Winners

We are pleased to announce the winners of the February 2012 PipesMagazine.com Cartoon Caption Contest Sponsored by SmokingPipes.com.

We received 531 entries with the initial screenings narrowing the pool to 175. The secondary appraisals reduced the caption collection to 56. Finally, it was down to five, and then the three winners were chosen.

PipesMagazine.com has signed a contract with Jerry King for the production of four exclusive Pipe Cartoons each month, starting in February 2012. (Jerry has been drawing cartoons for Playboy Magazine for the past 17-years.) One of the four monthly cartoons will be published without a caption so contest entrants can submit their own entries.

SmokingPipes.com is the exclusive sponsor of the monthly contest. PipesMagazine.com Editorial Staff will judge the entries and SmokingPipes.com will award the prizes. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will each receive a Sebastien Beo Pipe with a retail value of $85, $80, and $75, respectively.

  • About 1/3rd of the entries were nearly duplicates of others, and about 5% obviously didn’t read the rules, as they submitted multiple times, hence disqualifying all of their entries, and some people submitted from areas outside the contest’s geographic scope.

  • Congrats to the winners for some very funny entries! Fun stuff! I hope this feature sticks around for a while.

  • Nice jokes. Congratulations.
    I was not in the contest but mine was: “I told you a magnum of champagne wasn’t a good idea! At least this one ended up in its proper place….”.

  • Congrats to the winners! Looks like I will have to keep mine short and sweet next time. This is a great addition to Pipesmagazine.com
