Create-A-Caption: Modern Times

For this week’s Create-A-Caption, we’ve selected an iconic moment from the 1936 comedy classic Modern Times. In the film, Charlie Chaplin savagely critiques the industrial age and its dehumanizing effects on the working class. After his monotonous assembly line job leads to a stay in a mental asylum, Chaplin is released and encounters lovely hobo Paulette Goddard. Soon, his desire to make a better life for his new love leads to a side-splitting series of failed jobs and prison stays. Below is our caption, we encourage you to create your own in the comments below!
