Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post. This series has settled in its new time slot of Tuesday morning where it is starting to generate buzz across the web, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous, snarky, or thought provoking caption that is some how tied in with the image. Our fans have been quite clever with the captions, so if you’ve neglected to participate, this is the week to become one with the Hooniverse Hive Mind…
Last week, we had an image of a Little League Baseball Team, and the comments were both thought provoking, and quite humorous, like this one from long time Hooniverse fan skitter: “Lacking the talent to make a baseball dynasty, the organization chose to buy one instead.” Good One Skitter.
Right behind him was was one from our old pal Number_Six, and his comment went like this: …then I said, “mister, I don’t care how much free candy you got”! I thought this one was going to take the prize this week but there was one just a bit better.
The winner this time is Scandinavian Flick, who penned this very funny exchange:
“What’s this thing doing here?”
“Haha, it broke down and that guy just left it here!”
Dodge Dynasty: Until you drive one, you’ll never know just how far you can walk.
It’s now time to take a look at this weeks illustration. This is a publicity image showing a 1955 Hudson Hornet Sedan with three different couples admiring its looks. the couples appear to be: 1) An Older Gentleman with what looks like his Wife wearing a dead fox, which was very fashionable during this time period. 2) Another Older Gentleman with what looks like his much younger (and possibly second) wife. 3) Two Fashionable Young Women who could very well be actual Lesbians (How forward looking for American Motors at that time), or maybe just co-workers. So, what could each of these couple be thinking about the new for 1955 “Hash”, and can you put a little spin on their thoughts… (You can click here to see the full size image)
You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate entries, and after trying to describe the looks of the Hudson ourselves, we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption, and just like this Hudson Hornet, create a little buzz of your own.
