Cutline Contest

Are you familiar with the word cutline?

In the world of newspaper journalism, it’s a synonym for “caption.”

As you might imagine, not every photojournalist’s capture is suitable for publication. Some shots just aren’t newsworthy. Some are just too weird or even gross.

Back in the day, oddball photos got taped to the wall for an informal “cutline contest” to see if some sage words could enhance the joke.

I think this picture is perfect for that challenge.

Reply with your wittiest retort.
