I was making fun of inspirational Twitter posts earlier today and @shueytexas reminded me of the clichéd “Hang in There” virtues of the kitten-in-a-tree poster. Which I may or may not have hung in my room as an 11 year-old.
So I thought of a contest. Below is a picture of a cute kitten hanging from a tree. Your job is to come up with the best caption for this poster. The only rules: It must be anti-inspirational. So if you put this photo and your caption together, what you’d end up with is the least inspirational poster ever.
To kick things off, here are a few of my suggestions.
Hang on as long as you like, but understand the boiling lava will eventually incinerate the tree.
This kitten may be cute, but unfortunately it slipped right after this photo was taken and broke its leg.
Bereft of companionship, this cat began hugging trees. Environmentalists are like that.
Now it’s your turn. The caption contest ends at 9 am tomorrow, at which time I’ll pick my favorite and send the winner a free, signed copy of Pocket Guide to the Bible.
