6 Types of Pakistani Facebook Profile Picture Caption Trends These Days

2 Sep

I’M BACK MOTHAFAKHARS. Anyway, I’ll get straight to the point. I have an Annoyance-Switch, that has been on most of the time since my birth. I get it in viraasat. Like all people with no life, I browse Facebook too and sometimes somethings really catch my eye on the Newsfeed. Annoying things. While there are many, I will pick one of those to analyse today: Facebook Photos and categorise the captioning patterns these days among Pakistanis.
[Due to unfortunate circumstances, I can not use photos of real people whom I have categoriesed so will make do with photos resulting from random Googling]

1. Philosophicals:

They put up a random picture of themselves: smiling, laughing, jhank-ing into the khala, pouting BUT they caption the photo with an overly random and COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT quote (just like their existence).

Picture Example:

Caption Example: ‘A leader in the Democratic Party is a boss, in the Republican Party he is a leader.’
~ Harry Truman

Pliss to stick with Chacha Ji Coelho quotes, or that ghissi-pitti line ‘We take the love we deserve’ or something. (Replace ‘love’ with ‘food’ and that makes sense for my life).

Or then there’s this:

Picture Example: 


Caption Example: This picture is our reality, our truth. This poor, famished boy is Pakistan and that kutta he cradles is this nation; left all alone under the blue sky.


2. ‘Because ABCDBC’ said so!’

This is a new trend, it calls for you to put up your picture and the caption it by writing ‘Because *name of person* said so!’. Like, WTF does that even mean? SAID WHAT? WHAT?
What is this, Simon Says?!

3. Quote song lyrics.

Quote some random song’s lyrics that are completely irrelevant to your life or picture.

Picture Example:

Pedestrians flag for taxis while standing in the rain in Karachi

Caption Example: ‘Cause this is thrillaah, thrillah night!’

[Actually this makes sense too]

Picture Example Number II:


Caption Example:  When you run away from harm, will you run back into my arms? like you did when you were young. Will you come back to me? And I will hold you tightly, when the hurting kicks in.

4. Hashtag.

This needs no explaining.

Picture Example:

sono laal is a panjabi ,Urdo, pashto top actress,pictures,photos (1)

Caption Example: #Love #Sexy #Beautiful #Me #ShavedArmpits #WaxedArmpits #Tabdeeli #Raiwind

5. Be all ‘rebellious’.

Caption your photo with some rebellious, dark, deep, the-world-is-against-me type of quote.

Picture Example:



Caption Example: You can’t see me, my time is now. You can’t see me, my time is now.  [Please don’t judge me, I watched WWE at a time too. ]

6. Heartache:

Picture Example:


Caption Example: It hurts, it hurts so much. But I will fight, I will fight back

No it doesn’t, you’re in 7th grade. The only real pain you can have at this age is in your tidh. STFU.

In the end, I leave you with this gold and bid your goodbye for now.
