STORIES WE MAKE UP ABOUT OUR CATS

Her nose is sensitive and she has a tail.

This is an art called “Life is melodies.” Everybody plays their own life, and the lives are unique and fantastic. Nobody can be another person who has something which you don’t have. However, this thing applies to all of us, whoever we are. A Japanese ESL student writes odd, sometimes lovely, four sentence stories about the pictures her tutor sends her. She wants to be "Internet famous," even though she is anonymous. Don't we all?

"I find these funny in the same way that Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy are funny. Others may disagree. However, their argument is invalid."

This dog is wearing a cardboard Star Trek Enterprise costume with Bud Light cans as warp nacelles. This is a sea horse. This pony has a condo. Your argument is invalid.

Photographers respond to New Orleans racial bias photos

Looting vs Finding Chris Graythen, an AFP photographer in New Orleans (skip down to his post) who shot the photo of two white people "finding" goods in the floodwaters, defends his caption. "These people were not ducking into a store and busting down windows to get electronics. They picked up bread and cokes that were floating in the water." Meanwhile, the editor for the photog of the "looting" image says that he actually saw the looting occur. "'He saw the person go into the shop and take the goods,' Stokes said, 'and that's why he wrote 'looting' in the caption.'"

Caption this

There are a lot of small sites doing caption contests from time to time, but I've never seen a site with such a long history of them. There's gold in the archives (1, 2, 3, 4), and weekly contests still going on.

Make-your-own-thingy-type-of-post

The challenge was to take the top 3 most emailed photos on yahoo and create a hopefully amusing story about the sequence. I reserve the right to refuse a disturbing picture, this includes any pictures of celine dion.

"Mohammed, do you ever get that 'not so fresh' feeling?"

"Mohammed, do you ever get that 'not so fresh' feeling?" The Captions Blog takes press photos and adds humorous fictitious comments. One of my favorites is a photo of two military men wrestling. The caption reads, "Soldiers prepare for Operation Sweet Sweet Lovin'." Kudos to the highly amusing moderator and creator Jeff Druzba. He seems to have prevented this site from devolving into the baffling inside references and unfunny gross-out jokes that proliferate on other group "humor" blogs.

Why the media has no credibility....

Why the media has no credibility.... Read the title, then read the caption under the picture. Sigh....

Atlantic Monthly has dubbed Joe Clark "the king of closed captions" for 25 years of volunteer work to improve the quality of captioned TV programming and other accessible media. Who else on MetaFilter has a double life as an altruistic hobbyist?
