Caption Writing Madness #1

Q: What's caption writing?
A: It's a part of copywriting where you write a text underneath a picture that explains the situation.

Q: Where's the fun in that?
A: A lot actually. The fun lies in discovering other circumstances that we haven't figured already. Some pictures are already funny. So the caption adds little to the humor. Adding a caption that transforms a simple picture into a humorous situation, now that's an art.

Q: Whoa! Can I join? Huh, can I, can I?
A: Sure thing. I'll give credits to people who can come up with great captions. Meaning, captions without credits are mine.

Q: Can I caption it in Bahasa?
A: Of course you can. But I'll only credit humorous ones.

Q: Can I contribute a picture?
A: Only by permission from the original owner. The safest way is to contribute your own pic.

This week's pic was taken by and belongs to Onang Mertoyono.
