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
