In the digital age, a news headline is no longer the only way to attract a reader to read a news piece.

Enter Facebook captions! These couple of months, many readers have observed The Star Online team dishing out some of the best puns which won over the hearts of many netizens!

Infact, even those who’ve never been reading the news, are actually starting to read them. All thanks to these tummy splitting captions!

The captions are so good that we decided to include two extra ones into this post as bonuses!

The Star Online’s pun game is so strong that it also recently received a collective support from various Facebook admins of other organisations!

The question which linger in many people’s mind is; who the heck are behind these captions?? We did try asking our journo friends from The Star, but they’re not telling!

However, The Star Online journalist Dina Murad, who compiled all these captions into a public Facebook album provides a hint in the description; “Legend has it, admin lurks in the office pantry and only comes out when there’s free food in the newsdesk.”

Definitely revolutionising the way news is delivered!

We can imagine how the online team come up with these captions; read a news story, laugh or crack jokes about it and wallah! You’ve got a caption. At least that is how we think it happens lah.

Regardless, the entire team deserves a medal each for their immense hard work. These are truly works of art!
