Caption book, sort of

Well after all the talk about a caption book, I'm making one except the paper will be out of dyed/painted fabric. I printed approximately 130 of what I thought were the funniest or the most imaginative captions. I tried to find at least one caption for every person who sent one in but caption threads #1, 2, and 3 are heavily red Xed (even before the website project), so I'm sure I have missed more than a few people and captions.

Being extremely sensitive of not wanting to embarass anyone (band or PLEBAns), I didn't include the following type of captions: Edge being hair challenged, Larry's phobia with cats, Bono's height insecurity, "gross" body functions (pissing, farting, etc.) and captions featuring PLEBAns (birthday congrats, number of posts congrats, etc.). On the hand, there are plenty of beachball captions, a few superglue, hair gel ones and others. Credit will be given to the writers (just name, no "location" or interference status) and to photographers (if I can find who they are).

I'm hoping to be finish in time for the week of NYC show and somehow give it to the band. The title was going to be "Laughter with Love: U2 captions from fans around the world". But when I saw one of Lemon Grrrrrl's captions that began with "I kid because I love...", I thought what a great title. So with LG's permission, I would like to change it to "We Kid because We Love..."

Absofeckinloutely you may change it darling! It all sounds like a fabulous idea. Email me if you need any help. Or if you just feel like emailing me, whatever.

I'm going to the Monday 10/10 show, GA - will I be seeing you there???? How cool would it be to autograph it for the band?

What?!!

There's no way, you can use my captions.

I don't want mine to be part of this book you're making.

Please be so kind as to remove it!!

































Only kidding with you!!

Of course, you can use mine!!
And now I'm hella curious to know which one of mine you chose.
Can you let me know??
My email is miringeltje@u2captions.com

Absolutely your book-idea.
Although I have no clue what paper made out of dyed/painted fabric looks like.
I would love to see some pictures, when it's done.
But I'm sure it will look amazing!!

I really hope you finish it in time.
'Cause it's gonna be an awful lot of work.
I can tell you that much from experience with working on the captionwebsite.
Speaking of which, it would be so cool if you could mention it in your book (www.u2captions.com)!

Also, if you would like to share who some of the photographers of the pictures are (if you can find out), that would totally help us out too.

And LG, you're going to the 10/10 show in NY?!!!
That's far away from home.
And how come you didn't tell me that?
Uhhh wait, you probably said something about it.
But it might have slipped my mind.
Damn, I knew I shouldn't have been joking about Bono being forgetful.
Look what effect it is having on me!!
Help!!!

I'm included. I never even thought I had funny ones. I think that's great. I'll be NYC too and I will hope that the band gets your book.

I'm funny!




I suddenly feel so validated.
You like me, you really like me!





I'm insanely curious to know what I could have possibly contributed.....an old one?



Love the idea. I'm sure the boys will get a kick out of it.....perhaps it will even validate their belief that we're a lil offkilter, but loveable bunch.

Good luck with the book. And I hope to see pics!

Oh, and be sure to enjoy the show!








PS. I suppose I should metion that MBS is also me...........

Actually, I would too. I have a few that aren't too funny and I don't know what I was thinking. LOL Probably a margarita induced moment.
