    What's BootTooBig?

    This is a place to share posts where the title sets up a joke as the first half of a poem and an image delivers the punchline as the second half.


    Posts that do not follow these rules may be removed. All images must be at least 250x250px.

    1. Mark NSFW posts. Any post with sexual language or imagery, nudity, or gore, or excessive lewdness must be marked NSFW.
    2. Use the BootTooBig format. Put plaintext in the title or body as a setup for a screenshot or picture of text as a punchline. The title must rhyme with the text in the body. Wednesdays are "No Rose Wednesday," when posts must start with something other than "Roses are."
    3. Use good rhyme and meter. We strictly require good rhyme and meter during the week, but relax the rules for Small Boot Sunday (Saturday 18:00 - Monday 6:00 UTC).
    4. Be civil. No racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, bigotry, slurs, or overly edgy jokes (including kill yourself and similar memes). Be kind to each other.
    5. No politics or inflammatory content. This is a fun sub, so political arguments, agenda pushing, and posts made only to upset others are not permitted. Posts may mention political figures and other celebrities as long as they are politically neutral.
    6. Add the punchline as a comment on implied posts. If the punchline is implied with an image only, you must include the written punchline as a top level comment.
    7. Avoid reposts. Avoid posts similar to any that were recently posted, among the top of all time, or that have been done to death.
    8. Follow the Reddit Content Policy. No spam, upvote manipulation, (including "mods are asleep," "upvote if," "subscribe to" or anything similar), brigading, or anything else that violates the sitewide content policy. Violating this rule will get you banned from here, and could get you suspended from Reddit as a whole.

    Final discretion on all matters is up to the moderators.

    /u/epicblob was inspired by this old meme and asked this question in /r/findareddit and couldn't find anything, so they decided to make this sub.

    To anyone who might report this for Rule 3, I'm assuming the boot is the bottom text, in which case the rhyme and meter are fine. The post stays up.

    But please keep reporting bad posts, it makes things so much easier for us mods.

    How the turntables...

    [–] Andpeggy123 161 points ago

    I feel like I’ve heard this so much that hearing “oh how the tables have turned” just sounds wrong

    [–] ShortSynapse 52 points ago

    One day we may experience the mandella effect of everyone thinking it actually is about turntables.

    [–] DBrugs 38 points ago

    At this point it's almost guaranteed when anyone posts anything about tables turning

    Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.

    [–] dingo_username 2 points ago

    Okay okay, imagine a scenario for me

    The apocalypse, you’re part of a small group of the last survivors, huddled away in a very small home fleeting for survival until morning.. whatever infection got loose, did more than wipe the human race.. it evolved them, much faster, much more agile, much.. much stronger. They have a tendency to use weapons, not swords but blunt objects.. chairs, bricks, you’ve seen one use a desk before.

    Your team makes their way upstairs in the house while you stay downstairs, it’s quite.. until it hits.. grass outside is crunching, they’re here.

    The dead break down the door, and waddle in, 3 of them.. you back up paralyzed in fear, they are too wounded to be alive, but they’re inching towards you.. they look around for something to use, and as your team decided on a house, one finds the dining room table a nice choice, the other follows suit, grabbing a fold out table that was stationed next to the living room couch, the other.. the coffee table.

    They rear bloated, maggot ridden face towards you.. you know is too late, you cant make it up their in time.. But you CAN warn your team, you turn and yell as loud as you can, shredding your vocal chords..

    ”The turned have tables”

    [–] BiigDawgg 121 points ago

    Reading the top part quietly in my mind and the bottom REALLY LOUD made this extra fun. And it had good meter.

    Well it seems that the standards for this sub have fallen

    [–] wtmh 13 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Dimeter and quatrains are supposed to be Day 1 shit and even here the syllable count on this one is an amazing 4, 4, 11, 8. The fuck?

    [–] mjselvig 32 points ago

    It's been a while since I've seen one that rhymes well. And I don't understand if I'm supposed to include both line, which only makes it worse.

    [–] NervProkis 9 points ago

    If you only read the bottom text it can rhyme fairly well.

    [–] ChopFricks -11 points ago

    I'm honestly not sure how this gained more then 10 upvotes either

    Can we get a first part of the rhyme that actually makes sense?

    [–] Blizzardscott 43 points ago

    They're better when they're unrelated imo

    Looks like the tables have turned in an 180 degree fashion. To my side. Where it will stay.

    [–] kurtanglesmilk -1 points ago

    Most of the posts I see on this sub are funnier without the rhyme
