image descriptions provide context for people who may have 0 familiarity with what you’re posting about and allow more people to appreciate your joke, actually

sometimes i’ll read a joke, look at the picture, and then look for the image description to explain what the fuck i’m looking at. and without that, sometimes i dont know what the FUCK i’m looking at

@soft ...oddly glad i'm not the only person who does this

@soft one of my most used joke formats is an image with a very tangential connection with no other text in the post. I don't think a caption undermines the format and I actually want people to get my jokes. That's probably well over half of the captions I write
