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 very unusual, but we’ll get to that in a moment…
Last Week, we had an image of a Pickup Truck near a Marina, and the responses were somewhat amusing, as this was one of the most interesting Caption Contests we have had in a long time. It was Tanshanomi who came up with the second most popular caption this time, and it went something like this: “Reginald, ever since you returned from that ‘dude ranch,’ your behavior has been positively heteroclitic! I can live with your wanting to put a western saddle on Tempest, but this new thing you’re driving is downright insufferable! I shan’t ride in it!” There were 22 other responses to this particular comment, and you should do yourself a favor, and review all of them… they are all that good.
The winner this time was from Alff (Yes, once again), and it was a very clever tie in to a popular television series: “Relax Muffy, Mother and Father will return from their three hour tour very soon. We’ll be back at Howell Manor in time for tea.” Yes, this was very funny, so congratulations Alff!
It’s now time to take a look at this weeks image. It is one of the strangest images I have seen in a while. This is a 1981 Peterbilt 359 Semi, equipped with Whitewalls… Whitewalls on a Semi. The truck was photographed at the Silverado Resort and Spa near Napa, California. The ad copy states “Class, Never Outdated”. That will never win the Caption Contest, so come up with one of your own.

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate entries, and after watching “Smokey and the Bandit” again, we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this interesting image
