+1 for the Cracked pic...in fact, that's enough consensus for me to say we can go ahead and run with it. If someone will edit it to get rid of that little black dot at the top and put it on the page, I'll lock the thread.

Cleaned version. I also took the liberty of blurring out some of the original's JPEG artifacts (not that they were serious, but it does also shrink the filesize by about 25% in the process).
some caption text

Let's see about captions before locking.
I'm on the internet. My arguments are invalid.
"The roads that don't lead to Rome are blocked off." Or north, if you wish.
The Internet misuses, abuses, and overuses everything.

"You thought those things that looked like roads were for travelling on?"

I don't think it needs a caption. In fact, I think any caption will detract from the effectiveness of the image.

I took the road I was forced to take by the prick with the rulebook
And that has made all the difference."

I agree with Maddy, the pic works well enough as it is with no caption needed.
"Skeggǫld, Skálmǫld, Skildir ro Klofnir,"
I'm fine with no caption (unless someone actually prefers mine tongue).

[up] Likewise...that actually led me to make some tweaks on Frost's page.

I like Feather's, actually, but it isn't necessary.

Gentleman Troper!
I'd prefer no caption here.

I also like the DMOTR pic, but this one is a close second and I'm outvoted on that anyway :)
Special trousers. Very heroic.
Should we have a crowner for the caption, or just go without?

I dunno, the text in the cartoon pretty much says what the caption should say, anyway.

As much as I appreciate the Robert Frost reference, I think this image is fine without a caption.

I should've closed this a long time back. The pic is up, potholed, and tagged, and since we don't have a consensus on a caption, let's just run without. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
