The forty-third photograph to feature in BlogF1’s caption contest. You know the drill, think of something funny and witty to say and leave it as a comment below. I couldn’t resist temptation this week and posted an image of an FIA boardroom. The image isn’t from yesterday’s meeting (it’s from September 2007), but hopefully it is just as relevant for funny captions, just don’t go getting me into trouble!
For new readers to BlogF1, I thought I’d take a short moment to explain why Wednesday is BlogF1 Caption Contest day in the world of Formula One. It all started, coincidentally, with the reason why the above photo was taken. Last August and September was a stressful time for the sport, both inside and outside. In a bid to release some of the tension that was occurring on the site and in my mind, I decided to start a caption contest in the hope that you guys would share the smiles around and make us all laugh.
To my surprise, the caption contests proved quite popular and since then a photo has been posted on Wednesday (the day may change over the Christmas period) for your amusement. I try to pick unusual images from the world of Formula One, and often some do much better than others. A couple of weeks ago I posted an image of a stranded F1 car on the track with extinguisher powder all over it – no driver, just the car; 21 comments later and I’m still scratching my head, but laughing my backside off at the same time!
As we are making fun of a potentially funny situation depicted in the photo, just about anything goes with the comments. I request that commenters still follow the basic guidelines for the site, but as we are mocking an image and what could be happening in the image rather than one another, I tend to be more relaxed about what is posted. Having said that, this particular caption post will be moderated for obvious reasons – I really don’t want to end up in court. 🙂
Oh, and despite the title, it isn’t really a contest – there is nothing to win – although I hear bragging rights can be worth a fair amount on the open market. 😛
So before I let you loose on the above image, I just want to say a big thank you to everyone for making me howl out loud when I quickly check comments on Wednesday mornings while I sip my coffee and consider starting work. The sport wouldn’t be the same without you.
