Create a Caption


The Muses were the ancient Greek goddesses of inspiration. Literary scholars depended on them to provide a spark of ingenuity. Not so much now. Especially since we have LolCats. 

Creativity comes in many forms. The arts, poetry (limericks are my fave with Robert Frost a close second), music, haiku, and short stories limber up our senses to write our novels.

Anyone familiar with Icanhacheezburgers knows about the LolCats and Epic Fails. That site has grown into a monster.

It is Caption Week

Add something funny or sweet to these pictures, LOL or thought provoking. Exercise your mind and funnybone at the same time.

It can be a line or two, a paragraph, or a short story. I'll leave it to your personal Muse to decide which.

First up:


What is your caption?

"The Department of Transportation Head was accused of nepotism when he appointed his grandson as crew chief. He called the accusation ridiculous."

It reminds me of a poster from years back. Two little boys dressed in overalls and the caption reads: "You been farmin' long?"
