      The combination of snow, the newly painted white road and a large field of polar bears made the picture unviewable

    4. Lance was disappointed at the visibility of the grandstand his father promised.

    12. Note from Lawrence Stroll to his secretary: Please tell Liberty Media that the white paint used on the red and white contoured curbs of the Canadian Grand Prix race track is slightly less white than the exclusive and patented white colouring used on Lance Stroll’s Michael Kors Exclusive sports shoes, so the distinctive styling of the shoes fails to stand out. Can you ask them to repaint the white parts of the track slightly darker so Lance’s shoes stand out more distinctly?

    13. Stroll shows off the support from his home crowd

    14. The Stroll grandstand, suitably located at the slowest section of the circuit

      Stroll: Now this is grandstanding!
      Vettel: Hold my beer

    16. Wow,this grandstand is almost as big as my head :)

    17. I mean…you are not likely to get much variety in the spirit of the proposed captions in this case, Keith. Your bait is fat and juicy, and based on the comments so far, no fish in the water seems likely to resist the temptation.

      1. Worst caption ever

        1. @philipgb Maybe, but almost everyone has gone for the lowest hanging fruit. What sort of competition is this?! 😂

          1. “lowest hanging fruit”
            thats what she said

          2. @neutronstar Bwaaha ha……Lol.
            There is no other “fruit” to be had with this particular caption comp ;)

        2. @philipgb
          If there were a meta-caption competition, you’d have my vote.
