Create a Caption: Pillar Face

Posted by at 11:12 am in Writing Prompt | Permalink

Create a Caption on Ink Splot 26 Lady Gaga may have a Poker Face, but today’s writing prompt has a Pillar Face. When I was in Chicago last year, I ran into this guy on one of the supports for the El (which are the elevated trains in the city). Pillar Face was so awesome I just had to take a picture.

And now, I want you to tell me what you think he’s saying.

Leave your caption in the comments!

    It is saying:
    “Aww! You don’t know how lucky you are. You are pretty not geeky and you can WALK instead of being stuck here HOLDING UP THIS STUPID TRAIN!!!
