In this table, the "mean" means the empirically measured average funniness score when the "unfunny", "somewhat funny" and "funny" receive a funniness score of 1, 2, 3 respectively. "Precison" is the standard error of the mean, the standard deviation of the mean estimate. With that, a caption with an empirical mean μ and precision σ has true mean in the range [μ - 2σ, μ + 2σ] with 95% probability by the 68-95-99.7 rule assuming the responses are indepedent and identically distributed.

136 So much walking today, I wore the wrong shoes. 1.4200 0.03051 469 317 107 45
137 Surely they can’t be serious? 1.4194 0.03039 465 313 109 43
138 It implies the enormous shoes without showing them. 1.4194 0.03084 465 316 103 46

671 Interesting shape. Wonder how many you could fit in a car? 1.2886 0.03904 201 153 38 10
672 It is nice and all, but does it HONK HONK at your soul? 1.2886 0.04151 201 157 30 14
673 As you can see, any clown can be an artist. 1.2883 0.03765 222 170 40 12

685 Why the long face? 1.2865 0.04192 185 143 31 11

694 I know this artist. He’s a Bozo. 1.2857 0.03896 196 149 38 9
695 You say that abstract art engages complex philosophical, cultural, and social ideas by inviting the viewer to interpret the work through their own experiences, thoughts, and emotions, but, frankly, it looks like this artist was just clowning around. 1.2857 0.04263 189 148 28 13
696 And they say we're derivative 1.2850 0.03794 214 164 39 11

698 Well, I guess we better go. The car with the other eighteen of us is waiting. 1.2849 0.04102 186 143 33 10

703 It’s true anyone can throw cream pies at a canvas, but Flopsy did and you didn’t. 1.2842 0.03901 190 144 38 8
704 It needs a pie in the face." 1.2842 0.04072 183 140 34 9
705 It’s just hard to take it seriously. 1.2835 0.04180 194 152 29 13
706 The broad splashes of color, the intermingling of shades: it so reminds me of the time Rudy ran over the candy floss vendor with the clown mobile. 1.2834 0.04012 187 143 35 9
707 It lacks the subtle irony of Dogs Playing Poker. 1.2833 0.04263 180 140 29 11

711 And this Bozo calls himself an artist? 1.2822 0.03999 202 157 33 12
712 Yes, it speaks to me too. But I think you're forgetting there won't be room for it in the car 1.2822 0.04120 202 159 29 14
713 I'd suggest a caption for this piece, but the curator never takes me seriously. 1.2821 0.04032 195 151 33 11
714 Again, where’s the joy? 1.2819 0.04201 188 147 29 12
715 It needs a spritz of seltzer. 1.2818 0.04169 181 140 31 10
716 I wouldn’t even let this artist do my makeup. 1.2818 0.04169 181 140 31 10

720 On the other hand, she definitely captured your creepy clown side. 1.2812 0.04005 192 148 34 10

724 Of course, a true artist uses only grease paint. 1.2811 0.03960 185 141 36 8

749 You can tell the artist was laughing on the outside, but crying on the inside. 1.2784 0.04083 176 135 33 8
750 Of course you could do it! Portraits are just face-painting on canvas. 1.2784 0.03901 194 149 36 9

765 I don't get it. It's all out of proportion-- the feet are too big, the nose is completely unrealistic. 1.2772 0.04522 184 149 19 16

1673 The level of detail she gets using a squirting flower is staggering. 1.2112 0.03882 161 133 22 6
1674 Like other existential symbolism, it’s reminiscent of early Picasso, with a dash of late Soupy Sales. 1.2110 0.04713 109 90 15 4

1677 It's so obviously an image depicting the painter's inner clown crying out for more attention from the unwashed masses. 1.2109 0.04388 128 106 17 5
1678 Now that's funny. 1.2109 0.04660 128 108 13 7

1714 It would be better on velvet. 1.2091 0.04492 110 90 17 3
1715 You’re right. The artist does have big shoes to fill. 1.2091 0.04674 110 91 15 4
