Cartoon Caption Contest time. You need to help me complete the words that best go into the third panel. While I posed this as a cartoonist I think we can all relate to posting things online only for them to get ignored while other crap gets a bunch of attention. Here are some options I came up with:
- Oh look (fill in name of any Celebrity on the same social media site) found my cartoon and uploaded it to his stream.
- I am just going to post how much I hate social media
- Wow look at that cartoon. Looks like he spent about 5 seconds on it.
- Before I go, I’ll post this picture of my cat licking himself.
All of my choices have actually happened to me. Like one of these or got something better. Post it in the comments. I’ll put the finished one up either Wed or next Sunday.
“Saw this on reddit last week”. WHAT?
True..just go to another social media site and steal something popular for your stream.
“I’m going to see the Hunger Games tonight with my boo!”
Stuff like that gets LIKES in the dozens for some reason. I noticed when I announce a new comic, I may get 2 or 3 LIKES, but if I say some BS inspirational stuff about “believe in yourself cuz you’re the best blah, blah, blah…” it gets up to 50 LIKES. What a world. 😀
I have noticed you have stepped up the inspirational quotes and suck up quotes on Facebook. Of course I can’t let them stay serious.
I don’t expect you to. 🙂
I have almost given up posting altogether. I think I am too postitive. I am going to do some negative posting and see how much reaction that gets.
Squeaky wheel and all Bo.
I like your posts, Bo. When I read them I wish I was a better man. You actually inspire me to do the right thing and enjoy life for the simple things in it. Real talk, bruh.
The Tao of Bo. That gives me an idea. I should sell Tao Bo tapes.
Thanks George. I was kinda havin’ a bad day yesterdsy but things are cool now.
I’ve thought about makin’ tapes Bearman. I’ll make ’em, you sell ’em and we’ll split the take. Between the two of us we should come up with enough for a tank of gas.
I am more of an idea guy than an execution guy.
I was wondering what had happened to George.
Preacher George gets more attention that Cartoonist George.
It’s a case study I’m doing. People are getting my posts, they just don’t care that I draw pretty pictures with words. I mean some do, but for the most part….
It is all about them. When you sickenly praise your facebook friends their ego won’t allow them NOT to react. Why do you think I started doing random caricatures from my G+ stream. 99% of them still don’t comment on my cartoons but post a caricature and they all comment (at least until I get around to doing theirs) haha
*insert random cat meme for #caturday*
Damn, you beat me to it with the cat idea, Eric – my caption was going to be . . .
“I know – How about if I add a pic of a friggin pussy?”
Damn both of you. Don’t you read my posts before you comment? I said it first.
Duncan can’t read!!! 🙂
Way to out him.
Someone had to!!!
“Can I see your Internet Liscence please”
I don’t get it?
“Let’s see…Narwhals! Bacon! Nutella! Potatoes!”
Bacon definitely. Narwhals??
I prefer peanut butter to nutella.
I’m terrible at this sort of thing, but it looks like you have some nice ones to chose from.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
You act like you aren’t creative Sandee. Not buying it.
My vote is for option two. And I know exactly how you feel.
Either that or let’s do a circle share of cartoonists that you ignore.
I choose the cat licking himself option.
Would your dogs agree?
I’m never showing you guys another one of my cartoons ever again!
Good thing we got Peter to still post.
No, that was supposed to be your caption.
Oh…I thought you were mad at us for some reason haha
OMG, Kim Kardashian wants to buy it.
As featured on Friggin Loon!!!!!
🙂 you know I had to Bearman
Well than that would mean it was stolen from somewhere else first.
“Since nobody seems to be reading my cartoons, I’ll just put up this stickfigure picture.”
I might be more productive moving to that tactic.
I know, I’ll draw a “Caption This” cartoon. Ha,ha,ha! I feel your pain my friend.
Whatever reaction you can get.
A cat dressed like Link from the Legend of Zelda?
Were you the first to post that?
Since I’ve switched to ComicPress recently I’ve noticed the SPAM rolling in! If I could wish for one actor to post on my site…Morgan Freeman. I think even his comments would be calm and soothing…
From the words of Morgan than Tim “Get busy living or get busy dying.”
“I’ve got it!!! I’ll just put a Steelers Hat on in this picture before I share.”
Let me direct you to these posts:
very cool…now let me direct you to this link..lol
Yes but when the Browns and Bengals are in your conference it is expected that you would win so many games haha
whatever the case may be, we’ll take it 😉
“Lets just put a simple .gif on here.”
And let me direct you to this post:
“Crappy stick figure drawing makes an almost funny comment about a video game”
I think someone made an entire industry out of that.
‘KITTIES, KITTIES and MORE KITTIES!’
Somehow I managed to forget you already see you had a cat option.
See… those things get entrenched in the subconscious and just won’t let go without a ‘like’…
See SEE SEE!!
Maybe you should have a celebrity cat that hates social media and draws lousy comics.
As long as I don’t have a comic strip about it.
Caption – Cast of New Jersey Shore all perish in suicide pact after viewing their own show.
Even in death they would get spin offs (and tans)
Caption: “Look at this picture of Snoopy I found on my burnt toast!”
Those are worth more than the ones of Jesus.
Been there, seen that.
That is so sixty seconds ago!
“This is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen” or “the saddest thing I’ve ever watched”
Is that an entry or a lamentation?
Lol, a little bit of both. I get more emails and Facebook posts titled that way linking to some ridiculous video. I wish, for once, they linked to an entertaining comic 🙂
I get a bunch of people linking to comics in my stream…just not mine.
Well, Bearman, you got me stumped this time. Never was any good at caption contests and Dawn Griffin is giving away an AWESOME prize for her concurrent caption contest (she says). But just for you I’ll try to come up with something. Maybe by Friday or something. :`D
So are you saying you can’t think so hard creatively because I am not ponying up a prize??
I’m sayin’ I can never think up any of these caption thingies. Of course if you did kinda think of a good prize to give away… ;`) (BTW, I’m not doing, Dawn’s caption contest either. :`P
True but I am cheap unlike Dawn.
“I’ll just add “Ultimate Dog Tease” and “Sex” to the description.”
Now you have me thinking I should be “Ultimate Dog Tease” in my next blog post title.
I think ‘sex’ has ended up on my site so much that I am now banned across every corporate site in America.
Seeing as how “sex” and “porn” are high on the list of search terms for my site, I can see why.
Paris Hilton’s new vagina tattoo?????
That would probably be a hit.
Sometimes Madhatters does the Caption this: post. I am always stumped! I am just no good at the “caption this” thing but I do love to read the comments. some folks are so witty!! My brain just doesn’t work that way. 🙁
I does…you just need to kick start it sometimes.
So what you’re saying is youw ant to kick me in the head. You don’t have to spell it out that way B’man. Duh- I get it.
i would never do that. Kick your own head.
I can’t stop laughing at the one about the cat licking himself. Probably because today alone, at least ten of my FB friends created feline-related photo albums.
Exactly….the cats are taking over the world.
I’d go for the cat licking. Though I got to tell ya, a dog lick would be more…well…you know.
