There wasn’t a caption contest last week because of Thanksgiving and my busyness, but this week things are back to normal. So let’s kick it off with a bang… or, rather, a crash.
This week’s photo features a train wreck. But this isn’t some normal derailment — this train went through a building. And the tracks aren’t even in the picture! So something extraordinary happened here. It’s up to you to write a story or joke to go with this. Here’s some starting points to help you think of something: Why did this happen? How could this have happened? Who was involved? What do the owners of the building think? What about the people watching? Or the cleanup crew? Remember, you can embellish the story however you want, or even just make it all up. The goal is to be funny, not necessarily realistic. Have fun with it. Let your mind wander.
