Oh look, its another Monday and that means it must be time for the Hooniverse Classic Captions Contest. This is the seventh week in which we have run this little feature and there is no stopping us now. To review, I have found some classic automotive advertising and brochure images from around the web, and your job is to provide some witty commentary to match the image provided. There are still a few holdouts among our fans, so its time to step up your game.
Last week, the Classic Caption Posting showed a Striped Canadian Winterland, and you guys provided some comments that were quite suggestive, but very funny nonetheless. The comment that took the prize this time was a photoshop from our very own Tanshanomi. You can click on the thumbnail to enlarge it.
Now let’s take a look at this weeks illustration. It is a brochure image from American Motors showing off their new for 1969 Rambler Rebel Wagon. It shows a lovely older couple who seem to be lost on what I can only assume is a muddy mining road, with a group of hardhats who are trying to help. How did the lovely couple get lost in the first place? Why is the wife smiling when her new shoes are sure to be ruined? Just why are the guys in the Hardhats so helpful, and are they expecting a little something in return? (You can click on the image to enlarge it)
Only you can answer these questions and more. You have the next five days to come up with a great caption of this image. The editors will then argue on the merits of each comment, and after heavy drinking the decision will be made on a dart board. So get busy, and comment on the predicament this lovely couple got themselves into, or you may be joining them shortly!
