Caption Comp

I don’t know much about this picture except that it seems to be begging to have a caption competition about it.  And here at Troppo, we’re never afraid of a challenge. Nothing is too serious to trivialise. So please supply us with a caption.  The winner of the comp will be flown to pick up the Troppo Mercedes Sports which has been garaged in Paris where it has been a stunt double in a movie about Princess Di.

  15. Patrick says:

    Kroes is not French, and is well to the right of the European spectrum. Apart from that RebeccaG’s entry is quite good.

    Not Spanish. The French reference is to everyone else who seems to think that Europeans are all French.
