We don't normally have caption contests around here, but when we saw this photo of a $350,000-ish Rolls-Royce Phantom parked in from of a Wal-Mart, well, we just had to do something. Like, say, run a caption contest. You would think that anyone able to afford something as (frankly) laughably priced as a Phantom would send the domestic servants out to schlep home pallets of toilet paper in the R63 AMG. But hey, times are tough so maybe they laid off the domestic servants. Or sold the R63 AMG. Anyhow, talk about culture clash.

And now, as we do, we'll start you off with a few not-so-funny, deprived under duress captions of our own, knowing full well that y'all can do much better.

Maybe if I park three spaces away from everyone else, I won't get any poor on me.

It's actually a Geely GE and on sale inside for $99.99.

Sam Walton's heirs pay a visit to the family business.

The filthy rich have a constitutional right to cheap Chinese crap, too.


Do you have any five pound tubs of Grey Poupon?

And there you have it - ha ha ha! Think you can do funnier? Show us below in the comments. The winner will receive 15 laps around a Walmart parking lot in a Rolls-Royce Phantom. Or not. Thanks to Matthew for the tip!

      haha, could it be a Chrysler 300 with a fake Rolls Royce clip on the front! I've seen a car like this near my walmart and target all the time. I wonder if it is the same car, lol if so then its fake. I wonder why they didnt go pass the window in the pic :O)

      I thought the Spirit of Ecstasy retracted into the radiator grille on the Phantom, and the hood looks too short; makes me wonder if it's not just one of those awful 300C conversions.

        Josh:
        1. OW MY EYES. I never, ever, ever need to see an image of that resolution of one of those things ever again. God help me if I run across a wallpaper version or see one on the street. YECH.

        2. Yeah, having looked at that (after stopping the retinal hemorrhaging)... I think you're probably right.

        I immediately thought the same thing. The problem is, with those horrifying body kits, it leaves the car with a very "lumpy" front end. I am referring to where the grille and other components meet the sheet metal. It is very apparent in the following picture:

        Sadly, the picture in the story seems pretty legitimate.

        You can set it to where it's up or down when the car is turned off.

      My wife and I saw an Aston Martin DB9 at our local Wal-Mart the

      "The GPS says that this is Morton's, we should go in and check"

      or

      "Honey, I heard the Wal Mart was selling servants, and we don't even have to pay them overtime."

      Like every American I like my cars expensive and my shopping centers urine-soaked.

      I think Walmart Slogan says it all:

      Wal-mart
