PHOTO CAPTIONING FUN

4,702 posts in this topic

Why a second thread for photo captioning?

 

There are some photo threads that do not allow captioning so instead of letting these picture go un-captioned (we can't allow that ;) ) I decided to purge my frustration and start this thread. Now, photos from these threads can be captured and posted here...or photos from other sources can be posted here as well.

 

I urge all photo captioning enthusiasts to PLEASE continuing supporting *Dimitrious'* fine photo captioning thread, in fact, when the uncontrollable urge to caption hits you, _please go there first_. This thread is by no means an attempt to disrupt or upstage the *Dimitrious* thread, in fact, is should be secondary to it. *Dimitrious* has been diligent in supply us with photos for captioning and I fully consider his thread to be the definitive.

 

*Dimitrious*: I sincerely hope you don't mind that I started this thread. Like I said, _yours is the TOPS_, this one will be fill-in.

 

For the time being, I will post the images. I want this thread to be used only for those "un-captionable" photos on those threads here on the board where captioning is discourged. Let's use it for this purpose for now, anyway. Thanks.

 

And there may be periods of time when the thread will fall dormant.

 

Anyone with questions, comments, please fire away.

Another missed opportunity: "Mwe shoulda nebber licked da pweanud budder off our finners ride before dey asked for any other nominations for pwesident of the United States...now we're stuck wid dat guy!! "

 

( Please note: this is an equal opportunity post as you will notice I left any reference to any political party out of the equation--interpret as you will) :-)

(The bottom of the picture is so dark, I can only see one foot--so if you see two...just use your imagination) :-)

(guy) "Don't get angry, Mr. Director. I will get my line right, I promise. Now please stop yelling. Yes, I know my English accent stinks.....he jumped." (lady) "Yeah and with one of those fake, prop parachutes. Do ya think we should call 911?" (guy) "I don't know I am still surprised he jumped. He's always ranting about doing something, but I never thought he would do it! I mean he has been with us ever since the first picture, and now here we are at installment 34 "Gidget Meets The British Prime Minister's Son And Goes Sky-diving Down The Mississippi River With Him" and he finally does something." (lady) "I'm going call 911."

*Gidget Meets The British Prime Minister's Son And Goes Sky-diving Down The Mississippi River With Him"*

 

Are the first 33 installments on DVD? Sounds good. ;) Although looks like you'll need a new stunt man.

 

I generally feel that long captions are difficult to do because the reader can easily lose interest and the humor is diluted with all the reading. But yours here is really good.

Thanks lafitte! I was really worried it would be to long, but I just couldn't say all that had to be said in less words.
