Classic Captions – The 1972 Ford Ranchero Edition

14846726722_91ab4365a0_b

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. This week we are on target with this sporting image, but we will get to that in a moment…

Last time, we had an image of a little Renault Beach Buggy in Paradise, and again the participation rate was not where I expected, so enough of the old Paradise Images, and back to the old regular shots you guys and girls seem to like… The runner up caption belonged to Alff (Nice to see you participating again…) and his caption went like this: “I’m digging the combination of flat top and high beltline”. While very funny our very own Tanshanomi added the image you see just below this paragraph, which adds to the humor… However, there was one caption that was preferred over all the others…

And the winning comment was from smalleyxb122 (yes, again…), and his caption went like this: “Betty calls dibs on the wicker seats, while Nancy is staking her claim in the automotive fringe.” This was so spot on, so congratulations smalleyxb122 on taking the top spot with this edition of the Hooniverse Classic Captions…

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and I thought I would once again pull an image from the prolific Alden Jewell Flickr Account. This is a 1972 Ford Ranchero parked in the middle of an Archery Range. What I am wondering about this particular image is this: What does Archery have anything to do with the Ford Rancharo. Let’s explore the setting, shall we? We have three individuals, two with bows, so I guess these are the archers. The young woman seems to have the larger bow (for whatever reason I can’t seem to understand) while the young man closest to the car/truck is kneeling. Also, what type of cargo is in the Pickup Bed anyway. Once again I have to ask is this anyway to sell a vehicle during this time period? (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 on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (Like what does Archery have anything to do with cars…), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this image from 1972.

Classic Captions – The Renault 4CV Ghia Jolly Beachwagon Edition

14792442856_daaa78cd85_b

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. This week I thought we would once again travel to a far off destination, this time with a converted Renault, but we will get to that in a moment…

Last time, we had an image of a Toyota Corolla in Paradise, and the participation rate was awful, so I better up my game and find images that are more to your liking… The runner up caption belonged to I_Borgward, and it was very appropriate, but first a history lesson… Around the time of the Second World War in the Pacific, there was a cult that was started on Tanna in Vanuatu, which was also called New Hebrides during the time period. It was called the John Frum Cargo Cult, and gained traction during the 1940′s when over 300,000 American troops were stationed in New Hebrides during World War II, bringing with them an enormous amount of supplies (or “cargo”). I_Borgward used this as his contribution to the Caption Contest, and it went like this: “John Frum, he did come… oh, what a feeling!” Historically accurate, tied in with the image, and very well done, but there was one caption that was the favorite among the Hoons that frequent this site…

And the winning comment was from mkep819, and his caption went like this: “Did you know that 15 minutes can save you 15% on your car insurance?” “Everybody know that.” “Well did you know that Geckos’ taste great fried in mango sauce?” A great take on the current GEICO Ad Campaign which was quite funny, so congratulations mkep819 on taking the top spot with this edition of the Hooniverse Classic Captions…

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and I thought I would once again pull an image from Paradise with this ad for U-Drive, Inc. This was a rent-a-car service that you could rent these types of Beach-Wagons with a Tape Player that was your invisible tour guide to the sights and sounds of the islands. The image is a wonderful depiction of the late 50′s Island Life, where the women are all in swim suits, and the weather is always picture perfect. It is very different from how you experience Hawaii (or any other Pacific Paradise) today, but would this print ad entice you to book your vacation to this part of the world? (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 on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (Did you know they still make these types of buggies? Click Here!), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this image from paradise.

Classic Captions – A Toyota Corolla in Paradise (Papua New Guinea) Edition

advertising_toyota

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. This week I thought we would travel to a far off destination, where some people tend to call this place Paradise, but we will get to that in a moment…

Last time, we had an image of a Modified Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet, and the participation rate was better than I expected, and most of the comments were hilarious… The runner up caption came from Batshitbox (yes, again…), and it was rather unexpected (and very funny…): “They call her, “SpongeBra SquareShorts””. Good job Batshitbox, now I can’t get the theme from SpongeBob SquarePants out of my head, and while this was a great caption there was one just a bit better…

And the winning comment was from P161911 (also a regular), and his caption went like this: “Kelli was worried that Bob would figure out that she wasn’t a natural blonde and that these weren’t her natural breasts. Bob wasn’t worried that Kelli would figure out it wasn’t a real Porsche.” This was a very funny exchange P161911, so once again, congratulations on taking the top spot with this edition of the Hooniverse Classic Captions…

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and this time I found this image from a website called “Madang – Ples Bilong Mi”, subtitled “A Daily Journal of a Permanent Resident of Paradise”. The author was living in New Guinea for quite some time, and some of his posts reflected life on what has to be one of the most beautiful places on Planet Earth. This image was published in a old magazine called “Paradise” and his postings about the advertising images can be seen here. However, let’s concentrate on this particular image for a moment. I’m going to let the author describe it in his own words…

Now here is a very nice snap of some lovely ladies doing . . . something, I’m not sure what, maybe exchanging gifts, who knows? It’s one of those “concept” things that I’m never sure why it is supposed to make me want to buy a particular car. It seems like a lot of mumbo-jumbo to me, but then I’m not very sophisticated. When I see one of these old automobile ads I can’t help wondering how long the thing held up here in PNG. I still see some that look a lot like this one on the streets, belching white smoke and wobbling back and forth on bent rims and dead shocks. Most of them are held together only by the tenacity of rust.

So, what do you think these lovely young women are doing anyway, and is this really the proper way to advertise a car in paradise? (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 on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (I still don’t know what these young women are doing anyway…), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this image from paradise.

Classic Captions – The 1992 930-Vee Cabriolet Kit Edition

14576634028_20c8ca52d0_k

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. Remember VW Beetle Kit Cars of the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s? Well, here is a reminder of how fantastic these cars can be, but we will get to that in a moment…

12867796925_0f6355145a_b

Last time, we had an image of a Plymouth in a Thoroughbred Race, and the captions were very funny for the most part… The runner up caption came from Scandinavian Flick ★, and you have to read it with a racetrack announcers voice in your head, and it will all begin to make sense: “Coming around the front stretch, we have Her Royalist Majesty, followed closely by Not My Fault, and Cunning Stunt.
Taking up the rear is Glue Pot, Without a Care, and the newcomer; Raging Fury…
What’s this? Raging Fury has pulled along side Glue Pot and has… oh my… he just PIT maneuvered Glue Pot! This is unprecedented! Now as he’s overtaking Without a Care, he… HE BRAKE CHECKED Without a Care!!
Now he’s just plowing through the competition! Literally! He’s taken out Target Practice, Eye of Bull, Rankle Wotary, Stapler Red, Know Scone, and Runs With Scissors!
I… I am at a loss for words… Raging Fury, in a stunning display of… of… I don’t even know…. has just swept the race. Folks, I need to go lie down.”
I can hear the announcers voice over a tinny speaker system, and it was quite exciting… But it wasn’t the winner this week…

And the winning comment was from a new participant to the caption contest, Lokki, and his (or her) caption went like this: “Bob, in a strange moment of doubt, began to wonder if the Salesman might have lied when he said the car was ‘Racetrack-Ready”. This was very funny Lokki, so now it’s time to sign up for an Intense Debate Account so the Hoons who frequent this site can follow your witty commentary… And once again, congratulations on taking the top spot with this edition of the Hooniverse Classic Captions…

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and once again I raided the treasure chest of vintage advertising images from Alden Jewell’s Flickr Photostream. This is a brochure image for the 1992 930-Vee Kit Car, built using a Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet. The 930 signifies that the finished product is suppose to resemble a Porsche 930 Turbo Sports Car, which if you squint, it sorts does… This (and other) VW Based Kits promise you an exciting new car using your existing Volkswagen Beetle. In fact this particular kit promises that you and a buddy can bolt on the kit and transform a dowdy Beetle into this magnificent swan over a weekend. I can guarentee you that the Blonde doesn’t come with the car at all. And if you think the Cabriolet looks awkward, you should see the standard sedan version… And does this ad really make you want to go out an purchase this kit anyway? (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 on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (I’m not paying attention any more, just staring…), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this wet and wild image.

Classic Captions – The 1959 Plymouth Fury Convertible Edition

12867796925_0f6355145a_b

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. So what’s with the Plymouth running with a bunch of Thoroughbreds? We will get to that in a moment…

14427386289_91e9b0f46f_k

Last time, we had an image of a Young Couple looking into a house, and the captions were fun for the most part… The runner up caption was by Devin, and it was very funny in my opinion “It took Jim and Cathy a surprisingly long time to realize that the blinds were closed.” Short and to the point, and oh so close to winning, but there was one just slightly better.

And the winning comment was from Tanshanomi, and it was the very first one: “See? I told you it was my parents’ Skylark. But what are they doing way out h—…wait, THAT’S NOT MOM!” Yes, finding out your parents were in fact human is the stuff of comedy, so congratulations on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, this particular print as for Plymouth is very interesting. This was for the 1959 Plymouth Fury, and it seems to be taking place at a racetrack for Thoroughbreds. The ad copy is rather interesting, and goes like this: “Full of Fury, and Eager to Run! And they’re off! The sleek, sure-footed Plymouth Sport Fury steps ahead and stays ahead.” Other tag lines include “…all the “horses” you could want for modern driving.” and “You’ll learn why the smart money’s riding on Plymouth for ’59.” Well, when they think up a theme for an advertisement, they certainly stick with it. Is this really a way of selling a car during this time period? (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 on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (I wonder if the horses were spooked during this photo shoot…), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this dog-gone image.

Classic Captions – The 1963 Buick Skylark Convertible Edition

14427386289_91e9b0f46f_k

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. Here we have a young couple doing a little House Hunting, but we will get to that in a moment…

14613794932_5348e76d48_k

Last time, we had an image of a Toy DeSoto, and the response level was dreadful, and I really don’t quite know why… However, let’s see how good the captions were. The runner up caption was actually my favorite this week, and it was by mkep819, and it was perfect for the time period: “Unfortunately for Johnny, Betsy knew that he forgot to check off the “Cootie Protection Package” option, when ordering his new ride.” Ah yes, I remember the term “Cootie” when I was a lot younger than I am today, but there was one that you guys seemed to like better…

And the winning comment was from Number_Six, but there was a small mistake buried within the caption: “You came in that thing? You’re braver than I thought.” – A young George Lucas gains 40 years of material in just one outing with his pedal-powered DeSoto. Um, Number_Six, this car was actually powered by a small Briggs & Stratton Engine, but the caption was still funny, so congradulations on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and I’m going back to standard Automotive Advertising Images because you guys seem to respond to them better. This particular picture is part of an advertising page for the 1963 Buick Skylark Convertible, with a bright young couple looking into a house that sports a simple “For Sale” sign. The House itself looks rather ramshackle, but you never know what treasures you might find inside. The ad copy is rather interesting, and goes like this: “Find secret places… In the adventurous new Buick Skylark. Powerful Aluminum V-8 engine, choice of 3 silk-smooth transmissions. Dashing bucket seat interior. Despite its modest price, a “limited edition” car, every inch a quality Buick”. What the hell were the ad-men thinking when they came up with this drivel? What is a Modestly Priced, Limited Edition quality Buick anyway? And is this really a way of selling a car during this time period? (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 on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (The couple almost look like they are trying to break in…), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this dog-gone image.

Classic Captions – The 1958 DeSoto Firemite Edition

14613794932_5348e76d48_k

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. I found this image on Alden Jewell’s Flick Photostream, and I knew I had to look into the history of this car, but we will get to that in a moment…

14571696114_2393331c86_h

Last time, we had an image of a Great Dane in a Corvette, and the response level was pretty good, and for the most part, they were quite entertaining. I wish I could highlight all the very clever captions this time, but space dictates that I can’t. Devin almost made the runner-up position with his usual pointed caption: “Bitches love Corvettes”. Yes, short and to the point, but the runner up caption came from long time Hoon, Batshitbox, and his caption went like this: “Driving my red sports car, I can look at all the other drivers with ‘dis Dane.” This was one of the funniest captions all year, but there was one that you guys seemed to like better…

And the winning comment once again came from PotbellyJoe ❤❤❤❤♡, and took a turn that no one expected: “”Damn Stan, that is an awesome dog, I didn’t know you owned one.” | “I didn’t. I was just out driving in this Corvette when I came up to an intersection. A woman walking this dog took off all of her clothes and said, ‘Take what you want.’” | “Good call, the clothes probably wouldn’t have fit.”” I am still laughing at this one, and I think most of you will as well, so congratulations PotbellyJoe ❤❤❤❤♡ on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, this was just bizarre enough for the fans of this site to sink their teeth into. This is an advertising image for the 1958 DeSoto Firemite Convertible, which is a small “junior” facsimile of an actual full-sized DeSoto Adventurer Convertible. I had to do some research, and I discovered that Chrysler actually absorbed the tooling costs to build the car. The Firemite was built by the Robel Company in Pennsylvania, and the bodies were originally made out of Styrene Plastic, but because of the brittle nature of Styrene, the bodies were then produced out of fiberglass by Amroc of Long Island. They were powered by a 2 HP Briggs and Stratton 6B motor, with a go-kart like automatic centrifugal clutch type of gearbox. Only 325 of these Firemites were made, and most of them fell apart with their original Styrene Plastic Bodies. These cars were used as promotional items at DeSoto Dealers, as a way of boosting showroom traffic. It didn’t work, as sales of the 1958 DeSoto Line was down by almost 60% over the previous year. Let’s get back to the image for a moment, shall we? It shows a precocious (look it up!) young man in the drivers seat of the junior DeSoto, with a hot young thing looking at both the young man and his dashing Firemite. They are both way too young to even comprehend what type of relationship this is suppose to represent, so what the hell is this image all about? And is this really a way of selling a Full Size DeSoto to the Parents? (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 on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (See other images for the Firemite Here, Here, and Here), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this dog-gone image.

Classic Captions – The 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster Edition

14571696114_2393331c86_h

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears like clockwork, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. This is the 8th time that I have used a Corvette Advertising Image for this particular feature, but we will get to that in a few moments…

10336502905_1e25cb5093_b

Last time, we had an image of an Apple II Computer being carried out to an Oldsmobile, and the response level was fairly large, and for the most part, they were quite entertaining. However, there was a tie for the runner up position this time, and in all reality I didn’t care for either one. Let’s start out with a caption from a relative newcomer, steamcorners, and the caption submitted went like this: “Oregon Trail: B-O-P Special Edition. “You have died of malaise!”” Ah, I see that you are new around here steamcorners, and you could have created a great caption without relying on deriding the word Malaise, but it was a great first effort. It is now time for you to create an Intense Debate Account, so the rest of us can follow your interesting conversations here on Hooniverse! Now to the comment that tied with steamcomers, and it comes from long time Hoon needthatcar. His comments are usually priceless, but not this time: “Unable to afford anything but a 7 year old Oldsmobile, Brad Jones and his son were happy to hear about the Rodney King riots and went out for an afternoon of father-son looting.” Let me say this, I love all the work that you do, not only here but on your own blog, and I know that you can do much better… I didn’t like it needthatcar, but apparently the readers did so who am I to judge? I still would like you to participate around these parts because your past efforts have been stellar

And the winning comment once again came from GTXcellent, and it was very humorous with it’s deadpan simplicity: “I don’t know anything about buying one of these computers son.” “That’s ok Dad, you don’t know anything about buying a car either.” This one is called insult humor, and it was spot on for this image, so congratulations GTXcellent on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and I once again went back to the treasure trove that is Corvette Advertising, with this image for a 1963 Corvette Sting Ray Roadster. Just look at this image… It shows a smartly dressed older Gentleman in the drivers seat of a red Corvette Roadster, with a Great Dane sitting in the passenger seat, towering over the windshield. The ad copy is amazing in itself: “looks like a sports car… feels like a sports car… performs like a sports car… HOW COME IT’S A LUXURY CAR?”. The ad states that you can get all sorts of luxury car features with this Corvette, like an Automatic Transmission (for God’s Sake!). What puzzles me is this: What does the Dog have anything to do with the Corvette? Let’s see if you can make sense of this image by providing a witty caption of your own! (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 on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (Why a Great Dane in the passenger seat?), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this dog-gone image.

Classic Captions – The 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Brougham Edition

10336502905_1e25cb5093_b

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and once again it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears like clockwork, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. This week I showcase an image ripped from the year 1984, at the beginning of the home computer revolution, but we will get back to that in a moment…

14261754657_5e22b25bea_b

Last time, we had a picture of an International Pickup with a lot of numbers surrounding it, and the number of participants was almost back to normal, so let’s see who the front runners were this time, shall we? Our runner-up in this particular caption contest was from dwbf11, and it ties in the past host from the popular game show, “The Price is Right”, and it went like this: “A rare look inside Bob Barker’s brain revealed some troubling fantasies”. How do you guys think this stuff up? This was very funny, and it was actually my personal favorite, but there was one other that seemed to be your favorite this time…

And the winning comment once again came from smalleyxb122, and it was very suggestive (though not really unexpected): “To be an International man, you must first study a broad.” Or three as a mater of fact, so congratulations smalleyxb122 on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and yes, I was trolling around Alden Jewell’s Flickr Photostream for some retro photographic advertising images again and this one kept saying very bad things to me, so I said what the hell… This is an image that was used at Oldsmobile Dealers for the 1984 model year, and it shows a Father and his Kid (I would only assume it is his kid, but I digress) carrying out a new Apple II Personal Computer from a local retailer. So, they bought what was a state-of-the-art computer, while driving a car that was firmly stuck in the past. Look at the Oldsmobile Styling Cues for a moment… 1/2 vinyl roof, Wire Wheel Covers, Whitewall Tires, and yea, it does have a Stand-up Hood Ornament. Remember, at the same time this was produced, Chevrolet produced an identical car in the form of a Celebrity Eurosport, without even a lick of chrome anywhere, while Pontiac produced the 6000 STE, which was a (somewhat) serious contender to the Audi 5000 Sedan. So, what does this image tell you about the owner of the Oldsmobile? Let’s see if you can make sense of this image by creating a caption of your own. (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 on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (I never did own an Apple II…), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this very dated image.

Classic Captions – The 1967 International Harvester Pickup Edition

14261754657_5e22b25bea_b

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears like clockwork, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. And this week I decided to raid Alden Jewell’s Flickr Photostream once again with this very unusual image from 1967, but we will get to that in a moment…

tumblr_l3rbntaiyv1qanlclo1_1280

Last time, we had an image of a young couple with a converted Toyota Celica, and I really stopped caring about the participation rate because this feature is very enlightening, dammit! But let’s get to the front runners in this particular caption contest, and I need to start with an explanation. You see, I ran a Weekend Edition Posting about a Toyota Celica Sunrunner, and chastised the dealer for placing the ad without so much as a rudimentary description of the car, just about 100 words describing the dealer itself. You can see that post by clicking here! Anyway, it was nanoop who just took the essence of that post, and tied it into his caption, like so: “Bert and Judy were really happy that they found this hint on hooniverse, because East Coast Toyota-Scion is the recent recipient of the Board of Governor’s Award, the President’s Award, and a Circle of Excellence Award. These accolades are only awarded to dealers achieving record sales while offering the highest level of customer service in the industry…. Well I’ll stop here…” Way to throw it back into my face nanoop, but it was a very funny comeback. The only thing is this: There was one caption that was just a bit sharper…

And the winning comment once again came Devin, and it was ironically humorous in it’s simplicity: “Gary’s attempts to get Liz topless only resulted in a modified Celica.” See, like I said, simplicity. So congratulations Devin on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and once again I was trolling around Alden Jewell’s Flickr Photostream for some retro photographic advertising images (He seems to batch them in groups of between 4 and 12 each time he uploads new images) and I wasn’t going to run another International Pickup image so soon (the last one was on April 22nd of this year) but how can I not… Look at this image… It has it all… Let’s start with the lovely women, one Blonde, one Brunette, and one Red Head. Don’t you love the swingin’ sixties fashion? So, I have to ask, why is the guy in the picture on the passenger side of the truck, and what is he smiling about? The numbers you see at the top of the truck? This is tied in with the ad pitch that says: “This Year’s Smartest Numbers”. Well that really tells me… nothing, nothing whatsoever! Let’s see if you can make sense of this image by creating a caption of your own. (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 on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (This Year’s Smartest Numbers… of what?), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this whacked-out image.
