Caption every New Yorker cartoon with: “Hi, I’d like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn.”— Frank Chimero (@frank_chimero) September 22, 2015
Here’s a sampling of how Chimero’s idea plays out. And you know what? It works pretty well.
But “Hi, I’d like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn” isn’t necessarily the be-all, end-all of New Yorker captions, and there have been other attempts to create a one-size-fits-all approach for those cartoons.
Actually, “Hi, I’d like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn” would have been funny as well.
Later, there was “What a misunderstanding,” but quite honestly, Chimero’s latest idea is probably the best one of all.
But the most unfortunate part of this story is that it appears we can’t send that line to Chimero himself. It appears that he isn’t even a member of LinkedIn. How are we supposed to network with him now?
