Been a few days since I last posted, and it seems the blog has tumbleweeds wandering through it. Not sure if I am not getting good enough discussion questions, or perhaps they are too hard or demanding?
Anyway, this is one of my favorites. I just love the idea behind the caption, and I wish someone like Belladonna would take it and make a full fledged story out of it. Who says there can't be a Divorces R' Us around to help out couples looking to split their assets/ Here is what I wrote around the time the caption was posted:
99 percent of the time I have the pictures 1st, then write stories for them later. I try to save pictures for people that I think they'd go well with, and considering some of the preferences of Ron, I had this one saved for awhile before I came up with the plot above. I was chatting with a friend online that has been having marital issues AND was looking at this picture at the same time, and VIOLA! I've got a foundation for a caption!Of course, the whole Eddie Murphy routine, "HALF! I WANT HALF!" was going through my mind when I wrote this.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Turkey Day and Black Friday afterwards, and that you and your family is safe, secure, and out of harm's way.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: I know its come up before, but what do you think the perfect width for a caption should be? I'm wondering because I was at 850 as a max for a long time, due to the Haven restrictions, but its since been lifted. I'm thinking that most people have widescreen monitors by now. What is your screen resolution set to, and should I increase mine to 1024 pixels or so? Also, feel free to comment on the captions!
