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.

Gnu Caption Competition Mar/Apr 2019

Okay, that’s a bad pun, but start as we mean to go on. The even-toed ungulate in this picture is a blue wildebeest or brindled gnu. You can use that play on words as a jumping-off point, or take it in another direction entirely. But if there’s a funny caption that can round this off into a screamingly funny joke, then that’s where your job comes in!

Caption competition 081


Use your imagination and come up with something funny to complete the cartoon. The competition winners have usually been those whose caption adds more to the joke than just a recap of the picture. Pertinent, off-the-wall or sometimes just surreal in a perfectly-focused way. So go ahead – try your luck. You could be the next person to find some free, original Doc Rat artwork winging its way to your home. 
 
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.
 
 
 
 
 

And we have a winner for the Jan/Feb 2019 contest.

Tim Baverstock caption competition winner CC-80


Out of a difficult and witty field of contributions, I have picked the caption sent to me by Tim Baverstock, of Luton UK. The mental picture it evoked in my mind’s eye was amazing! I don’t need to draw it – just close your eyes and imagine!
