Last night, Alan Ferrier from Edienburg, Scottland, did the impossible: He improved the perfect wikipedia photo caption. With the addition of the word “right” to this photo of a man playing bagpipes and an “indifferent” penguin, Ferrier showed the world the power of editing Wikipedia for hilarious, and factual, gains.
That’s when things took a turn. Twitter began editing this picture of Piper Kerr, who is on the right, ok?
Then found other pictures that could use more facts, like this one of seated economist Guy Standing.
Users found numerous captions in need of extra truth, like this one of Cecil the Lion’s brother, Jericho the Lion, who is also a lion.
And some they didn’t have to caption at all:
It just goes to show that there can never be too much truth in the world.
