With temperatures reaching record highs throughout the US, and with Spring around the corner, I thought it might be time for a Spring Edition of the Hooniverse Classic Caption Contest. We will get to the lead picture in a minute, but let’s recap the premise for this feature; 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 you are all playing for another Mack Trucks Belt Buckle that I received some time ago ago. I know there are still quite a few of you that have not participated in our game yet, so this would be a perfect time to decorate your jeans, and participate.
Last weeks image was of a picture of a life guard on the beach and most comments were very funny. One of the entries was a photoshop of the contest image (on left), and Irishzombieman added this caption: “The new 1968 Ford Mustang, now available in Atomic Fireball Red.” Great combination, but it was our own Charles_Barrett who was this winner this time around with the following caption: “Young Rajesh was not the tallest lifeguard on the beach that summer of ’68, nor the strongest swimmer, but his mastery of all 1250 verses of the Kama Sutra made him the most popular by far…” Congratulations Charles, and you need to send me an e-mail telling me where to send your prize.
It’s now time to take a look at this weeks illustration. It is a Brochure image for the 1974 Dodge Fulline Catalog featuring a lovely young lady in a period correct “Halter Top” Evening Dress. This isn’t the typical image I use in this feature, but the pose with the open mouth, and that dress made me remember my High School Senior Prom Night. What does it remind you of?

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate the merits of each entry, with the best one awarded this weeks prize.
