Jenner has been an Australian newspaper and magazine cartoonist for over twenty years, drawing professionally and non-professionally in both the Australian and US scene in the small amount of time outside his duties as a full-time doctor. He is currently working in a city general practice, and has adopted the anonymous pen name Jenner as an ethical courtesy.
Although a daily strip on the Internet is four years old, his Doc Rat character has been appearing in medical and non-medical magazines for over a decade, including Bush Alert, vicdoc and the Medical Journal of Australia. Jenner currently editorial cartoonist for Australian Doctor Weekly.

Caption competition for July/August 2019
Caption competition 083
What’s with the doctor giving the seahorse a shot in the arm? Does a seahorse even have arms? Maybe in the weird place called the Jennerverse they do. But from this, with a clever caption, I’m hoping you’ll add the missing ingredient and turn this simple picture into a very funny single panel gag cartoon. That’s all the help I’ll give you – the rest of the joke is up to you!
Click on the picture to be taken to the competition page. Then send me the funniest caption you can think of, and if yours makes me laugh the most, you’ll win the actual picture itself. Get to it.
