    Take your best shot at starting a new meme. You must caption your picture only with “Win”, “Fail”, or “I like where this thread is going”. You may caption within your post or with text added to your picture. Also, be advised that photos in this thread are probably more likely to be grabbed for intarweb usage.

    Thanks to Zeke for the theme suggestion!

    Are we photoshopping these captions into the pictures or just posting normal pictures and typing the caption above/below?

    Posting normal pictures and typing the caption above/below was the original intent, but it might be funnier to PS it into the image itself. Thoughts?

    I think photoshopping would be more fun. Adding text is pretty simple so its not like we’d be adding some big hurdle in terms of software use to give anyone an advantage there.

    You can use the lolbuilder at the icanhazcheezburger.com website too, to add text.

    So long as it’s limited to the three options, it sounds good to me.

    I’m lost here. Could someone give an example for this theme?

    Can we add one-word descriptors like “epic” or “geometry.”

    Or you could always just check out the failblog, it looks rather promising for ideas – http://failblog.org/

    Thanks linguine. Now I’m going to have to watch The Final Countdown instead of taking shots for tomorrow this evening.

    Thats fine, but as olavf suggested, photoshopping must be limited to only one of the three options. For that matter, any captions in the posted should also be limited to one of the three. The point of the event is to focus on the comedy of the picture, not to wax eloquent. OBO notations are also ok.

    I’d rather not– its more difficult to police. Keep it simple. If it’s truly an epic fail, or refers to something, the picture should speak for itself with only the basic caption.

    Gotcha. No worries, I just have one that’s a little subtle.
