Demotivator Caption Contest

Thankfully, we didn't actually carry through with this plan... What would be a good demotivator caption for this picture?

Maybe something to do with "SAFETY" or "MISTAKE" or "HOPE" or "FUTILITY"

will this make it?

Knowing what you want, even though it wont work

Higher Education: A college degree only means you know how to solve problems in theory.

Good Ideas: It's always a good idea to have a woman in the picture, if for no other reason than to tell you that yours is a bad idea.

Hope: Maybe it's possible, but it's not a good idea.

Why can't they just invent boats that run on all surfaces?

Sometimes, even our wise, fearless leaders stumble and fail

It all started when Pastor Manny shouted: “Brothers! We can do this!”

Hope: when you try just to see if it will work

Perspective: I have not failed. I have just found ten thousand ways that won’t work.

Common Sense:
If it looks really wrong, it's probably not gonna work.

Men: Following our guts since beginning of time.

Plan B: "Let's put the truck on top of the boat!"

Achievement
You can do anything you set your mind to--except this.

Perseverance
Trying harder won't make the boat any smaller or the truck any larger.

Tolerance
Letting you do "Whatever floats your boat" will kill you. Or someone else.

Enemies
Who needs enemies when you've got dumb ideas?

Teamwork
"Okay, judging by the shadow of the boat, it's about 2 o'clock. Good work guys."

dan said...

Encouragement: When the whole hearted push the unwise to do things they shouldn't.

Futility: Where reality and the hardheaded collide.

Failure: What happens when your children aren't there to state the obvious.

Safety: Likely failure is well worth the cost of a return trip.

Sense: This doesn't make any.

Trust: ...I'm sure they see something that the rest of us don't...

Tetris Skills: A time when there's just no way.

Judgment: Sometimes a lack of it helps you appreciate it more

I took the pic...Nice

justin said...

Leadership: Proudly presenting the leaders of our church.

Idiom: Great minds think alike, the opposite is also true.

I think it's at least commendable that they put the boat in... i think some of our demotivator captions are mean... like if you won't say it in person if you were there, you probably shouldn't post it here :(

A Reasonless Faith

Laurence said...

btw I disagree with the Anonymous post above. The intent of these Demotivators are not to be mean, but to humble.

Daniel, to avoid the confusion, perhaps you should change the title of these Demotivators to reflect a more Christian attitude. I'm partial to calling them Humiliators.

Hope: Maybe, just maybe this once.
