NORWALK, Conn. – Happy holidays folks – as promised, here is your holiday clickbait.
No, that’s not it above. The idea is to click, right? You have to click “read more” to participate in this, the first NancyOnNorwalk caption contest.
Now that you’ve clicked, what do you think? Got a caption for the photo below?
Chapman Hyperlocal Media Inc. Lisa Thomson has the first caption suggestion: “Common Council Members responding to an informal discussion about the 2017-18 Budget – ‘Let them eat cake.’”
Someone asked me what clickbait is. Here’s what Oxford Dictionary says:
(on the Internet) content whose main purpose is to attract attention and encourage visitors to click on a link to a particular web page.
No idea why “on the Internet” is in parenthesis. And maybe what we’re doing here isn’t technically clickbait. Get over it, it’s a spoof.
In case you don’t know, that is, from left, Mayor Harry Rilling and Common Council members Doug Hempstead, John Kydes and Rich Bonenfant.
OK, bad news: Comments are not going online today until I get a chance to read them. I think you understand.
