The Videogum Why Don’t YOU Caption It Contest: Jim Carrey Wearing Big Fake Feet For Some Reason

Life can’t be all work and no play. Actually, it certainly can be all work and no play, but having a life that is all work and no play is absolutely not the ideal. I think we can at least put down our nitpicking for one second, for once in our lives, and agree on that. As John Terrance famously said in his movie The Shine, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” I like to believe that’s what Jim Carrey was practicing in his appearance on the red carpet at Elton John’s annual AIDS Foundation’s Oscar Viewing Party over the weekend in Los Angeles when he chose to wear fake big feet instead of shoes. “Assistant, put those tasteful loafers in the garbage and get me my feet.” “But Mr. Carrey–” “Please, I’d really prefer that you call me Jim,” “Ok, ah- But Jim,” “Yes?” “Jim, don’t you think the big feet will be weird and confusing, especially when they are given no context? Like in an Internet caption contest, for instance. Or even in the blog where the Internet caption contest originally found the image? I mean, I’m sorry if this is out of line–” “It is.” “Ok, and I’m sorry, but I’m not even sure what the context would be if anyone even wanted to provide it? Do the feet have something to do with giving money to AIDS research?” “Are you kidding me? Give me my fucking shoe feet and shut your mouth. I’m trying to have fun.” And Jim Carrey was pretty much right! That person should have just given him the shoe feet! What’s it to him or her anyway! #YOLO #YOCTOAIRN (You only caption this once and it’s right now.)
