DEV Community Caption Contest

Update, June 9 β€” Congrats to @dendihandian for winning the caption contest! We will be sharing your caption on Twitter & Instagram soon!

Winning caption: Interview Test v.s. Actual Job


This week, we're going to try a lighthearted contest here on DEV. Below is a picture without a caption. Your task is to fill in the blank to make a hilarious programming/tech/developer meme.

Here are the rules...

  1. Write in your idea of the funniest caption for the picture as a comment below.
  2. Keep the humor appropriate (see our Code of Conduct ) and developer/software/tech-related
  3. Include your Instagram and twitter handle in your submission comment if you have accounts on those platforms (and don't mind sharing)

Then...

  1. We'll pick several submissions to be featured in a Twitter poll via @thepracticaldev in the coming days
  2. The community will vote on their favorite caption
  3. Finally, we'll post the winner on our Instagram and Twitter, and tag them if they shared an Instagram handle. We'll also give the winner a special DEV profile badge!

Ok, let's get to the meme-age πŸ™ƒ


Fill in the blank...

the shortcut version of my submission isn't very relevant πŸ˜₯ .. I think no one will vote for it as I doubt people will click to see the full version πŸ˜†.
