Classic Captions – The 1967 Fiat 124 Sport Spider Edition


Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post. This is a series of posts that are set to run this time each week, 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. This week’s image is either very Shakespearean or Operatic depending on your viewpoint…

Last Week, we had an image of an MG Midget paired with an Ass, and the responses were right where I thought they would be. There were at least a half dozen great captions this time, but I’m only going to highlight the top two, and it was smalleyxb122 who came up with a caption that almost became the top vote getter this time with this great quip: With SafeSearch on, this is the only result for “Midget and Donkey.” Very clever, and oh so close, so well done!

However, this time the winning caption was from Devin, who tied in all of the elements of the image together, with this double entendre: “George, I’m leaving you. You don’t respect my ass and I’ve seen you running around with that bitch.” This was very funny Devin, so bravo!

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks image, and it looks like another strange one this week… Here we have a 1967 Fiat 124 Spyder with what could only be called a troubadour. I’m not sure if he’s part of a Shakespearean Play (no doubt as Romeo!), or is performing in an Italian Opera. Maybe he is enjoying a Renaissance gathering for all we know. The one thing key with any of these scenarios that I can tell you is this… The car doesn’t belong. And what’s with those tights? Let’s see if you can come up with a funny, snarky, or an outrageous caption for this curious image. (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 contemplating our own caption, we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this interesting image

    I assure you, good sir, despite what you may have heard about Fiats and rust the floorboards are quite solid. Allow me to demonstrate.

      Devin, that was excellent.
      Much like this Sierra Nevada Narwhal Imperial Stout. Enjoy!

    Paolo could not understand why his enthusiasm for vehicular jousting was not shared by more people.

    What should I do with my hands? Pretend to fly fish and wipe simultaneously?

    I have drunk, and seen the Spider.

    Bored with the "on ice" movement, Alessandro had grand dreams of a new kind of theatre, Shakespeare "on wheels." However visionary the idea, it's application resulted in too many undesired sound effects, excessive carbon monoxide inside the theatre, and the occasional car fire on stage due to the poor choice of vehicle.

    1967 was the last year Tony from Montreal would lose a bet on a Stanley Cup final to his Maple Leafs fan cousin in Toronto. The years haven't been kind to Tony or to his Fiat collection, but he's still a good sport.

      There are bits of cinnamon roll uncomfortably lodged in my sinuses right now. You are to blame.

    Hark! Whereth in all nether Hells art I?
    I remember last fallesting into yon well in 1628, mine horse, gone now alas, beside it.
    Into what evil age hath I climbethed out, and what demon steed is this upon which now I stand?
    Alas, dear Antonio! Would that thou might reach through centuries and draw thy dear friend home.
    Antonio? Antonio! I waiteth!

    Luigi Dallapiccola's "Fix It Again, Tony" is universally acknowledged as a masterpiece of modern Italian opera, despite the technical difficulties that have plagued every attempt to stage it.

    Enzo never owned up to fathering Dino's younger half-brother Romeo, for obvious reasons.

    Fiat marketing attempts a cross promotion with Medieval Times, marketing the Spyder as a chariot for princes everywhere.

    Tony throws the imaginary shell of his manhood out of the car, sits down, and heads to Stratford-upon-Avon.

    Wouldn't a Tempest have made a more appropriately Shakespearean car?

    The unspoken first round of "To the pain." First, you must draw attention to yourself and a Fiat in the town square.

    Early in his career Sergio Marchione tried his hand at marketing, "of course the Americans love Shakespeare, they love Fiat no?"

    While performing his latest hit – "Look, I Washed For Supper !" – Lance " Fix It Again, Tony " Boyle suddenly developed a severe case of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, causing his pantalones to explosively inflate with copious amounts of Brown 25 effluence. Needless to say, Lance's career went down the toilet.
