You know, some time ago I actually thought about creating a board just for "create a caption" threads. Never did it though - perhaps we should?
Of course, I also tried to get one of the SMF (our forum software) developers interested in making a mod for a weekly trivia quiz (including keeping track of high scores and such), but that never happened either.
I think a caption project would be an excellent mental exercise for us. Like a picture of the day
or something. A routine workout! And it might just be possible that in time the cleverest among us may begin to develop telekinesis or other impressive faculties.
On a side note there was a subversive movement a while back in NY called The Bubble Project
. The organizers had thousands of blank caption bubble stickers printed up and plastered them over ads and posters. They returned and photographed the results. Some of the better ones were published in a book called Talk Back: The Bubble Project
. You can also see a bunch on Ji Lee's website
. Very amusing. Haha.
