View Full Version : If that don't capTION it all... The caption thread (TM)



GodfreyTemple

It wasn't here, but now it is.
Of all the threads on II, this was likely the one I posted the most in (tricky... I posted in the symbol threads a LOT too).

Now we shall post images, caption them, have a giggle, and repeat.
And since I'm putting it here, I'm also writing the rules.

Rule 1
One image shall be posted for captioning at a time.

Rule 2
No new image to be posted until old image has had a "winner" selected and declared by the poster of the current image.

Rule 3
If the image poster does not select a caption as "winner" within 24 hours, another poster may take it upon themselves to render a judgement (or take a vote, or poll the nearest bucket of crustaceans) and post a new image. All at the same time if it's convenient.

Rule 4
Do not post an image you are not comfortable being teased over (see also; upbraided on grounds of taste, moral laxity, questionable mentition, method of eating asparagus, or penchant for the color puce).

Rule 5
Do not declare yourself the winner, even if it's been 24 hours. If you need me to explain why, please find the nearest wooden plank - and swat yourself in the forehead until you do understand.

Rule 6
There is NOOOOOOOO, rule six.

Rule 7
When in doubt about rules 1-6 (particularly six) please relax and step away from the computer, you may have been staring at the pixels for too long. Or alternately, Message me privately and call me a unpardonable peanut-head.


Well, it's good to have that taken care of.
And now...

Yes, and well done.

The idea is that the winner on the previous image posts the next one, and chooses the next caption winner (oh...the POWER).

I matters not to me but it IS really easy to get silly with photoshopped ones. Captions to non manipulated images just seem funnier, but hey whatever you guys decide.
