“The Escaltor” caption this cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward


It’s time for another Caption This Contest!

Provide a caption for this cartoon. I call this one “The Escaltor”… a crazy image of Jesus going down and Satan going up. So let’s come up with some imaginative and funny captions. I know you can do it.

I’ve drawn it in such a way that either:

  1. Jesus says something, or
  2. Satan says something, or
  3. Both say something, or
  4. no one says anything, just provide a caption describing the event.

The winner gets a fine art reproduction print of the completed cartoon, signed, sealed, and delivered to their door! A joint effort between the nakedpastor and the winner! I’ll sign it then you can sign it once you get it. Something you can hang up and brag about.

All you need to do is 2 things!

1. Leave a comment here on my blog with your caption. (ONE ENTRY ONLY PLEASE!)
2. Sign up for my emails. (If you do, you also get a free e-book, “The Stages of Deconstruction”.)

That’s it!

I’ll post the winner tomorrow morning here with the completed cartoon with the new caption.

Do I bring joy into your life? Then please help support my work. Become a patron!
