Bar exam prep season is officially upon us. Until the end of July, your Facebook news feed will be plagued by updates from recent law grads who feel the need to languish in their own self-imposed agony. Your Twitter feed will run rampant with hashtags about the #barexam and impending doom (e.g., #baddecision, #killmenow, #torture, #iwelcomedeath, #stuDYING). To put it plainly, these people are in the depths of despair.

Nothing could possibly make their lives worse at this point, but they made their choice long ago to suffer this fate. They could have quit before reaching this point, but this was the path they chose.

Why not rub their misery in their faces?

Here’s the picture for our latest caption contest. It’s almost too ironic for words:

Same rules as always: submit possible captions in the comments. Please try to be funny. We’ll choose our favorites — with preference given to those with a legal bent — and then let you vote for the best one.

Please submit your entries by SUNDAY, JUNE 9, at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern time). Thanks!
