Caption Monkey 48: Wild West HUMMER

Hooray! (Or perhaps better: Yeehaw!) Neatorama and Hobotopia's Caption Monkey game is here! You can win an original Laugh-Out-Loud Cat Comic by Adam "Ape Lad" Koford for the funniest caption, but first, the story.

Behold artist Matthew Harrison's project "Hummer" at the fifth Zoo Art Fair in London, featuring a HUMMER H3 SUV sportin' wagon wheels! (Source)

Now on to the game: place your caption in the comment section. One caption per comment, please. You can enter as many funny ones as you can think of.

For inspiration, check out Adam's blog. Good luck!

Update 10/24/08 - Adam has picked the winner: Congratulations to Reverend Mike who won with this caption: "Rollin' on 1822s"

Hello, and welcome to my Amish Crib. First let's check out my rides. First up we have my Hum, that's rocking my brand new 36 inch rims. No amish motherlover has those except me, Father Holypimpin'.

Tom had scoffed seven years ago when a magazine editor suggested that one day rims would re/de-evolve to 40 inch wagon wheels. His friends had now gone a little too far to rub it in his face.

After much tedious custom woodwork, the Lancaster Urban Splinter Education Reconnaissance (LUSER) team had just finished unhitching their latest educational display. The general consensus was that this year's centerpiece model would be a hit, and not just with the elementary school crowd.

While visiting 1882 bad roads forced Lex Luther to replace the wheels of his time machine with wooden ones. Luther, shown above, snaps a shot of his new bride, Laura (nee Wilder) behind the wheel in 2008.

OK, I posted my caption. That done, it's time to rag on the basic "art" at work here.

"Harrison has combined the legendary off-road vehicle with ‘Wild West’ wooden wheels to create a sculpture that is a mixture of art, engineering and motoring. For Harrison, the crux of the ‘Hummer’ is formed by both its ‘being’ and its afterlife."

Come on... the guy took a real off-the-lot production car and merely got a machine shop to make some hub adapters so that real wagon wheels (Amazon: www.amazon.com/Amish-Handcrafted-Authentic-Decorative-Hickory/dp/B0016AJ40A/ref=sr_1_17?ie=UTF8&s=miscellaneous&qid=1224795475&sr=8-17) would temporarily bolt on the hubs for the show. That is a "sculpture" worthy of exhibit to the masses as serious art? It's a bit funny, I will admit, but in a farmshow (www.farmshow.com) kind of way. Actually, no, it's nt even up to their standards. Calling oneself a "sculptor" for such a project really stretched credulity a bit.

In 500 years will our descendants be able to see this alongside "the Elgin Marbles" in the British Museum? Ummmmm... maybe not.

Straight talk from Sid.

Only after his return from 17th century England did Harrison realize that the new "localization" feature of his time machine required some more work.

Having not learned the lessons of Aliens and Indiana Jones, the fourth Back To The Future movie was also a disaster at the box office.
